After reading some recent reviews on the Red Lion I felt I needed to support the Team that work so so hard for the Business. Previous reviews I have always been honest about any ups and downs they have had, but they are most certainly on a high at the moment. The food is outstanding, nothing is out of stock... More

The red lion has been through some bad patches over the 6 years I have been visiting. I must say that the food is the best it has been for a long time. This must be due to the newly appointed kitchen manager. The staff that need a special mention are Maciek, Laura, Caroline, Rebecca, Seema and of course Adam.... More

Rebecca 5153126 Excellent warm and friendly first class service. Food and drink are highly recommended. We had steak and Risotto both served on time and service with a smile. Nothing is too much trouble for Rebecca our waitress. Very pleasant evening by our family. Would highly recommend to everyone. We are here to celebrate a wedding anniversary and were given... More

We thought we would try this place again after previous visits years ago, that weren't good to say the least. However I am very very pleased to say this place has completely turned itself around, the staff are attentive, and very friendly. The food is great, and with the discount code we used, was very very reasonable for what we... More

Has to be visited to be appreciated. Staff are friendly and very professional. Excellent food and varied selection to choose from. The bar has everything you could wish for to say it primarily caters for a hotel and restaurant is just sour grapes from rival businesses.

Dinner on our first night in Blackpool was excellent at this Beefeater restaurant. Little one's nuggests were cooked perfectly and just the right portion for her. My partner's lasagne was equisite as was my steak. The staff member who dealt with us was excellent and couldn't be more helpful. On to our next morning when we arrived in anticipation for... More

After the first night's stay at the adjoining Premier Inn when the meal in the Red Lion was excellent I had a very poor experience with an order for the Fish & Chips. Initially it took almost an hour for our 2 meals to be presented and mine, the fish, was curled up on the plate and turned out to... More

The Red Lion used to be a sizzler pub and in my opinion this was much nicer than the beefeater (although when we asked the staff they denied it ever being anything but a beefeater). After waiting for our meals for nearly 90 minutes (many were complaining) they were lovely but we much preferred the old menu. We used to... More
