“Fabulous Evening at Rowleys FC”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

Splendid evening, greeted by a superb Restaurant Manager "Daniel" he new the menu well & was able to guide us through it beautifully, I went with his recommendations as he seemed so confident, I wasn't disappointed, superb Duck starter followed by delicious lamb main course, exquisite puddings and excellent coffee with mince pies completed a memorable dining experience, definitely one to recommend in Blackpool.

“Premiership Quality”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

Rowleys is a cut above most restaurants in the Blackpool area, it is certainly the cream of the Blackpool FC stadium. Indeed were the football ground to match its standard it would have new Tangerine seating throughout, undersoil heating, and a playing surface like a billiard table.

On the midweek night we were there it was not busy, in fact only one other table was occupied by paying guests and the only other people present were members of the board, their guests and the football club manager.

The service staff are very friendly and mostly attentive, although more championship standard than premiership, the food however was very good indeed, and not expensive for such quality.

“An Illuminating Restaurant”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

We ate in this restaurant three times whilst staying at the hotel at the beginning of November.
Rick , Holly and the waiting staff really understand the meaning of customer service. They were present but not overbearing. They knew and understood their menu and wine list, and gave advice well. The menu itself was imaginative, and suitable to all palates and had a wide price range to suit all pockets. The food was hot, cooked to our requirements, well presented and above all full of flavour. Top marks to all the chefs and sou chefs.The atmosphere of the room is chatty and friendly with great views overlooking the pitch and the top of the Blackpool Tower. We also met the owner who was genuinely interested in our dining experience. You don't need a sea view when the food is as compelling as this!

“Wonderful Experience”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

We visited Rowleys with friends last Sunday evening, a truly wonderful venue even if you are not a football fan, to be seated overlooking the pitch is indeed something very different. The food, atmosphere and warm welcome was absolutely wonderful the young lady Holly who looked after us for the evening is a real asset, Holly’s knowledge of the menu and service skills were first rate. A return visit is certainly a must for all of us.
