“Horrific quality, badly cooked and over priced”
Reviewed December 9, 2012 via mobile

Truly awful food. The chicken Caesar salad consisted of chunks of deep fried stringy chicken with limp lettuce, salty acidic cheese and some kind of white effluent dressing. The accompanying jacket potato truly was something to behold, reheated by microwave, initially cooked by microwave; leathery, cloying and bitter. Talentless cooking at its very best.

The croutons were ok they, probably because they came out of a packet.

And to top it all, it cost nearly a tenner.

A tired, drab, seen better days establishment that clearly makes its business out of ripping off one time customers.

“Great Find!”
Reviewed December 1, 2012 via mobile

Looked on Trip Advisor for a place to celebrate my daughters 17th Birthday - this place did the job perfectly. Food was good value and the atmosphere was great - we went about 1.30 thinking it wouldn't be too busy but, it's obviously very popular as it was busy but we still easily found a table. It took quite some time to be served as there were only two girls working - they did a great job of taking orders, clearing tables, serving at the bar, serving meals, and taking payments - felt really sorry for them as they never stopped but were still efficient.
Wool definitely go again when visiting Blackpool again.

“WE HAD A LOVELY MEAL”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

Went on Sunday for a family meal - 6 adults and 2 kids.

Great menu - food was hot, tasty and quick service (without feeling rushed).

Kids loved the play area, so didn't get bored!

Would definately recomend if you lie steak, burgers, tex/mex food.
