We have visited the Duke many times in the past while visiting relatives in Blackpool, this time we had a meal, which while not a Michelin Restaurant did offer a good selection of reasonable priced pub food, which was all very good and served hot. We left after our meal and returned later the same evening for the Karaoke, an... More

Newly refurbished and looking great, the Duke of York is probably the best value for an early evening meal in North Shore, good choice on the two for 7.99 menu and fantastic service. There's a selection of wines and spirits to choose from along with beers and ciders, or you can have a coffee. Well worth a visit and a... More

This reviewer clearly hates blackpool, if you read all his other reviews all he seems to do is complain and insult our town, not one good review from him about blackpool. All bars in Blackpool and in the country and I guarantee many in Glasgow charge for the dash of coke this is common practice. If you were so cash... More

We visited here while visiting Blackpool for the weekend and found this a good place to go to. They had two football matches at one on which was helpful to us. The food was decent and reasonably priced as was the drink. (The San Miguel draft was very good which is unusual). Customer service was good and the bar had... More
