“Lovely food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2014 via mobile

Just had a break in Blackpool and we ate twice at the Washington . When you go in you get a warm and friendly welcome. We went to watch the football and have a meal. 1st night we both had fish and chips and you could tell the fish was fresh . 2 nd visit I had a southern fried burger and my partner had a Donna burger. They have a full menu with starters ,grills , steaks , big plate meals and burgers and sandwiches . There's something for everyone . Bar staff nice and friendly. Next time we in Blackpool we will definatly have a meal at the Washington .

“Best place to eat in Blackpool”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2014

one of the best places to eat in Blackpool. Staff are great and the menu caters for all with a vegetarian section and a gluten free menu too. Great value and worth a visit when in Town. Highly recommened.

“Excellent food, lovely staff, and brilliant value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2014

Our party of 11 adults (family gathering) went to this great pub for Sunday dinner during our long weekend visit to Blackpool. The staff were hugely accommodating, friendly and helpful. We called ahead and they were happy to accept our request for a table booking. They set our table and waited for the rest of our party to arrive. On arrival we went to our table where we were given unfaltering service until we left a couple of hours later. We basically ate, drank and had much merriment for the duration and could fault very little. The menu was excellent, with fantastic value for money. Most dishes could be made 'extra large' with very little additional cost involved. The variety of food was great and there was definitely something for everyone. There were clear plates all round, and most of us went on to have a dessert, again excellent choice, and absolutely amazing presentation. All in all we were blown away by this little pub that from the outside appears to be a little run down and unkempt. But don't allow that exterior to fool you. Step inside and be prepared to be catered for by a lovely bunch of staff, who are ready and waiting to cater for your every need. The only reason I have reduced this to 'very good' as opposed to 'excellent' is if you are expecting perfect surroundings, you won't find them here. The toilets (the ladies anyway) let the place down. They are clean enough, but have ill fitting toilet seats, poor/empty toilet paper holders and not the greatest of hand driers. We however will absolutely be happy to look past that if we are ever in Blackpool again and will hopefully eat there again in the future.

“Excellent Find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2014

We came across this pub after receiving 2 £5 off food vouchers and visited for the first time when we arrived in Blackpool on the Thursday. We got here at about 1.30pm and to be honest were not looking forward to going in as the window in the front door had a massive crack in it as though it had been kicked in. Anyway we looked beyond that and went in where we were met by a really cosy clean pub. It must be a popular place as there were quite a lot of people inside. We got served for our drinks straight away and when we ordered our food we didnt have to wait long for it to come out. We got a hot baguette each which was honestly one of the nicest pub meals we have had. This place is very cheap but you wouldnt think so with the quality of the food. We liked it that much we went back the following afternoon. The staff were excellent especially the manager and our waitress Sally. We will definitely be back when visiting Blackpool again!

“Very Good Value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2014

Decided to go her for a change and have steak, really glad we did. My husband and I had a rump sizzler including a drink, our friends had a mixed grill. The steaks were cooked medium rare and were cooked just right, they were juicy and tender. Overall the food was cooked really well, plenty on the plate, good service from the friendly staff, all in all a very good evening with friends. For a steak meal, yes it was one of the best meals I have had. We have decided to go there once a month with our friends for a good steak.
