A beautiful setting with a mouth watering menu - however firstly would have been helpful to be informed that you have to order at the till. Even after 5 minutes waving at staff for drinks no one came over to explain. Unnecessary frustration for 5...More

Blackpool Sands is very easy on the eye, most especially when viewed from the Venus Cafe. It has a great atmosphere and is perfect for largeish parties but, as you would expect, it is a family restaurant particularly in the July/August season. The food and...More

Had a great time here meeting up with friends. The food service is speedy and the quality on offer is very good. Highly recommend the cream tea generous portions and no skimping on jam or cream.

The charges change throughout the season. Up to £7 for the day last year however the price reduced during the day. If using Venus for an evening meal then arriving late is free.
