My Fiancé and I visited Blackpool for a day/night out. We decided to pop into this pub as it was only a few doors away from our hotel and we wanted to watch the football. We ordered some food and considering it was 2 meals for £10 it was an absolute bargain and it was delicious. Great place and we... More

Thank you for your review, I'm glad you liked the decor. Whats very interesting is you state that the owner was drunk and angry and this was off putting... at what point did you meet the owner(s)??? as they have been away in Newcastle for the last 2 weeks working at their other venues so this is impossible, they also...

Great mix of regulars, Landlady and staff always friendly and welcoming. Food great value for money. Recently refurbished to a high standard. DJ Ray and the occasional special guests always top notch. Lovely addition to the Blackpool scene. Especially nice after a walk on the beach or a bit of shopping.

We popped in at lunchtime as the menu looked good as did the exterior, the pub was very clean and had a nice vibe. Lunch was very good in taste and value for money, and the staff were cheery and friendly. We went back in the evening and there was music and the atmosphere was superb, thanks to the manager...

We were staying at the Bedford Hotel and were recommended this pub by Julian on reception and were very glad he did so. We found a very varied menu and decided on the Sunday roast and Terry had a meal from the grill menu. Both meals were promptly served served, from the kitchen hatch and brought to the table, and...

A nicely decorated pub with very friendly staff. Plenty of TV screens but not too noisy. My wife and I ate on two separate occasions whist staying at a nearby hotel. The food was hot and very tasty and very reasonably priced as were the drinks. Overall excellent value for money.

Had a lovely time at the Duke of York. We did have a meal here and it was really good value - 2 for £10. The entertainment was superb also. They had a karaoke evening on the Saturday which was brilliant.
