Food was good considering it's a Wetherspoons! Service was actually very good here too, we even got a check back, which given the pub was heaving with people, I didn't expect it!

Positives Food came out quickly, staff were friendly and served quickly. Negatives Popadoms were dripping in grease and very little sauce on the sweet potatoe curry for partners meal. Were offered replacements but refused due to being out off. Chicken was tough and ribs flavourless. Also no sunblocks on windows so had sun in our eyes at most tables we... More

We visited twice during a two day stay. Both occasions the service was quick and friendly, despite the bar being very busy. The trad beer was well-kept and the wine from W'spoons usual house choice. About £5 for a pint and a 175ml wine. Cheap for Blackpool, especially the seafront. Good central location next to Blackpool dungeon and directly below... More

Great place to have dinner with variety of ales and tasty food! The restaurant faces the ocean, so come here at sunset to get stunning view as a free compliment.

Went in a few mornings for Breakfast/coffee. Usual Wetherspoons standard. I liked that I was not harassed to leave even though pub was nearly full. Maybe Stanley Holloway/older patrons would enjoy novelty of name more than younger, but nothing wrong with pub at all overall.

Fast and effective, especially with the new app, find a table. Sit, order and everything comes to you. Clean and friendly, but not buggy friendly (especially a double, and no real place to leave it safely). Only downside is the loo's, it's like walking into a freezer. Food is normal spoons, cheap and cheerful, drinks fine, although it's not clear... More
