“A must visit pub in Blackpool!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

Just back from a lovely,relaxing 2 night stay in Blackpool. Used this pub for drinks and meals both afternoons we were there. We were served by Tracy both days.Firstly in the downstairs bar then in the more relaxed upstairs one. She was very pleasant,polite and helpful. I know this pub is only 1 year old but it is still in as new condition. Toilets especially were immaculate. I must agree with a fellow contributer saying that they could possibly do with a toilet downstairs in the bottom bar as it seems to be busier. We had the burger meal on the 1st day and the curry special on the 2nd. They provide excellent value for the customers.Where else can you get poppadoms, naan bread and 2 lovely curries watered down with 2 vodkas and coke for £13.50?
This establishment is really well set out and even has a rooftop beer garden that must be mobbed in the summer? ( if we get one,ha )

“Highly rate Layton Rakes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

Set right in centre of Blackpool.

On day we visited, it was quiet and staff were extremely friendly, atmosphere was relaxed and food was fresh.

Would recommend you go upstairs as from there you can people watch the street below.
