“Great end to a day after the pleasure beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

After a busy day at the pleasure beach we walked into this restaurant at 7.45, a party of 9 with 4 being children. No booking or notice but the waitress was more than accommodating moving 2 tables together. The food was cooked perfectly and we were advised about a small wait as all the meals were cooked to order. Not a problem at all as we relaxed whilst waiting. Food was excellent and service brilliant, no wonder it was full. Will be back when we visit blackpool

“Best in Blackpool”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

Had dinner hear last week after a day walking up and down the promenade sunburnt it was much needed a drink and a feed.
The food was fantastic I ordered a steak medium rare and it is probably the best steak I have ever had, the service was very friendly and the atmosphere was extremely cosy.
When in town I would highly recommend. Visit to the eating inn & definitely order a steak there amazing!

“A fantastic place to eat !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

A small quiet yet high class establishment with fantastic food and staff only too happy to help.
With so many places to choose from , this rates as a must when you visit Blackpool.

“Can't believe this is not No1 steak house in Blackpool”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

Ate here 3 times during 50th/44th hubby/wife holiday.
Had researched TA and had a list of "must visit" restaurants but this went out of window on 2nd night (even though waitress admitted she was a stand in, rushed off her feet yet brilliant) the steak was cooked perfectly blue just as hubby likes, I thought I would make do with scampi but was soo moist and tender had twice. Hubby had fillet steak 3 times, each with different sauce and I had chicken fillet with honey/mustard marinade. The meat is so tender and service wonderful.
Just wish we could afford to come to Blackpool more to eat here

“High Class Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

My partner and I regularly visit Blackpool as we love dancing.
We always use this restaurant. .
Food is excellent. Nothing is ever to much trouble for the wonderful staff.
Linda is an absolute gem and Bens cooking skills are second to none.
Everything is freshly cooked. Ben even makes his own desserts.
On top of this, the restaurant is tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean, and the prices are well within everyone's pocket.
Its position is almost opposite to the South Pier, so really convenient to get to.
