A couple of years since we were last here, has gone downhill. Needs a refurb - Good choice of real ciders. Real ale available ; Toilets absolutely awful. Probably wont go back, as the welcome wasn't good either.

As the sign says that it's Blackpools hidden gem, there is a excellent selection of real ale and the pub is friendly and clean. We dropped in when there was a Greenpeace Wintermusic festival which provided a great selection of music from 12-12, if you want a decent pint then this is your place

This place is certainly one of the better pubs in Blackpool. Super real ales and a great range of ciders. The night I visited there was a live band who were really good and there was a really nice, friendly atmosphere. The pub is also dog friendly which is great! I've never tried one but apparently the fresh pizzas are... More

Last time I was in Blackpool I spotted this place and thought it looked good, but ran out of time to go in. This time it was my first stop and I wasn't disappointed. Friendly staff, who knew about all the beers and ciders on offer and offered samples when I was unsure. Music was good and a bustling place... More

I'd about given up hope of finding somewhere with a good cask selection. Then after some serious Web searching I came across this place and popped in for swift one (or five) whilst on holiday. What a find! great beer, great music and bar staff that know what they are doing. Got me away from the crowds in Blackpool for... More
