We ate at this pub on 3/9/17 and can confidently say it will be the first and only time we visited.
Waiting at the bar took 2 mins to get served as the bar man carried on his conversation with another punter. Only me at the bar waiting so there can be no excuse they didn't see me.
There was 2 adults and 4 children in our party. 6 meals and 5 drinks cost £46 which is a bit steep when you compare it to other establishments, but at least else where you get a decent size portion. This place was like they were rationing for war or summat.
Off the top of my head we ordered Chicken tikka curry, Lasagne with chips, 2 fish n chips, Spag bol and I think Sausage n mash. Some of these meals were on the 2 for £8.99 menu. 10 chips per plate would of been a pretty good guess if we were to of counted them. The quality of the food itself was ok at best.
The tables were very sticky, there were no tables to cater for bigger parties (4 ppl max per table) and the tables were all very squeezed together up one side of the room.
The lack of service, cost, portion sizes easily make this the worst place we have eaten out in Blackpool at.
