The Rotunda is a pleasant Bar with a great view of the bay. The beer compared to the surrounding area is a little expensive, but it is a beautiful building and great decor. My only real issue with the place is the food. I have eaten twice and the food isn't good for the price. So my suggestion is go... More

Went for lunch at the Rotunda Bar. I had 3 tablespoons shrimps, 2 slices bread and a few green leaves - outrageous at £9. My companion fared better with a cheese & veg platter with a generous portion of olives. Sadly, these were of such poor quality they were inedible. Pot of tea (good) for 2 over £6. Bar very... More

We popped in during late afternoon for a coffee and had a couple of. Cocktails too with olives and bread. Lovely view from the cafe/bar. Reasonable prices given standard of hotel and the fact that there's no real competition nearby.

Went here for a drink after fish & chips at the clock tower cafe (separate review) and it was different and very good. As the name suggests it is round and a lovely building. It's also a gin palace! But they also serve good beer and cocktails. Sat outside enjoying a lovely view of Morecombe Bay, but would still be... More

We had seen Eric's statue, walked along the jetty and needed a cup of tea. We went to the fantastic Midland Hotel, Rotunda bar. We sat by the window and drank our tea. Biscuits were provided with it, these were delicious. The view was lovely as we could see the sea. The inside of the Rotunda was very ArtDeco. The... More

Called in for a coffee and were disappointed at the state of tables, empty ones were dirty some full of glasses and plates etc. Tea and coffee very expensive for what is basically a snack bar. The actual hotel and restaurant are very clean and very tastefully decorated and furnished. Great views over the bay but wouldn't return.

We ate at the bar at The Midland Hotel one Sunday afternoon. The view is great and the outside terrace area is great. We had the Gin flight which is 3 gins and tonics for £15 and a beer which were good. We placed a food order at the same time and then waited. The drinks took 15mins to come... More
