“Good night out”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

We visited the Sands on the 11th Oct, the show was the Sands Swing Orchestras and a guest singer. The entertainment was very good, if not long enough, there was to much time where nothing was happenning. We did arrive early and had a reasonably good 3 course meal, the service was quite good and the other staff also good. We had very good seats and enjoyed our evening.
Ive also reviewed the Viva night club, which caters for all ages and would rate it the same, but completely different type of entertainment.

“Trash NOT world class!”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

Me and my wife attended this venue recently and we were shocked, we expected before we came that we had found a gem in Blackpool. We were very mistaken, the food was bland, seemed to taste like it had been sat there for a while, I'd much rather of had pub grub The drinks we ridiculously priced, I mean do they realize they are located in Blackpool not London! I can't deny that the staff tried but there didn't seem to be enough of them for the size of the venue, so I dint feel as thought I had a 'special' experience. The show was good, but lacked atmosphere. It is a beautiful venue and it seems a shame that it is not being the most of. I have to say I wouldn't go back.

“Let down by overpriced drinks”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

We went to the Sands for a Swing Night having been once before. The food was very good as was the entertainment but if you use the table service for drinks, you pay your bill at the end of the night. I was shocked to be charged £16 for a pint of lager and 2 Bacardi and cokes. The venue is excellent, no question but at these prices I wont be back in a hurry.
