|Surprisingly small Wetherspoons situated almost directly under Blackpool Tower. Good selection of casks & on 2 visits the staff were friendly & efficient. Particularly pleasant if you can sit by the windows at the front & watch the world go by.|

|Went on a monday afternoon 6th feb. The place was VERY QUIET! So thats the time to go if you dont want the hassle from holidaymakers. idiots and the like. A very nice place, staff were obliging and friendly, we found no problem with the place. The real ales were good and well pulled. Yes the staff told us its manic in the season, but what do you expect you types who like a good moan, it is Blackpool|

|Nice enough pub but during the daytime (off season) there are not enough staff to cope with the customer flow.|
Poor disabled access, with small lift at far left of entrance, often blocked by chairs / buggies.

|I visited this pub a couple of days ago on a Saturday tea time during the illuminations period. The pub was packed out with virtually every table occupied & people 2-3 deep at the bar waiting to be served. There were 6 bar staff behind the bar with only 4 actually serving customers. The other 2 were just loafing about trying to look busy. The manager was wandering around doing nothing.|
There were only 4 cask ales available, Ruddles @ £1.85, Abbot Ale @ £2.35, Moorhouses Blond Witch @ £2.25 plus one other. I had one pint of Blond Witch which was good but it ran out & I had a pint of Ruddles. Ruddles normally seems a bit weak to me but on this occaision it was very good.
I would like to visit this pub again when it's not so busy but being in central Blackpool it's probably always busy.
