Lovely food and service, although we were there on a very quiet night in October. Hubby's steak was excellent and my lasagne had a lovely flavour to it.

Family run wholesome British Food. Absolutely excellent value for money. Simple but great menu we could do with more Eating Inns in the UK. Everything was homemade even the breaded mushrooms. The only small criticism was my diet coke was flat from the bar upstairs.

Great find, good value for money and the best garlic bread I've ever had. My spaghetti was very tasty only require a touch of pepper for my taste. Stake was cooked perfectly and nice and tender Had chocolate fudge cake for dessert which was just to die for.

We called in at the Eating Inn earlier today, a group of 4 Adults and our baby girl, and right from the start we were welcomed by the staff and helped to get comfy at one of the tables. The Staff were all helpful, friendly and knew the menu well, and in fact we all ordered something different as the... More

Fantastic service and food to match. We have been coming here every year and it is a big part of our family day out in Blackpool.

Can't fault it at all. My partner is very fussy on how his steak is cooked ( blue) and they did it spot on. The kids meals were great and the puddings were amazing. Lovely little place and the staff were more than friendly and couldn't do enough for you. Will definitely be returning next year.

What a great little place, we visited it by chance and so glad we did. Service was great and food even better. I had the homemade chicken Kiev and chips and it was amazing the only shame was we found this place on our last night. This place is value for money and well worth a visit!

Near to the pleasure beach on Blackpool front this good value little haven is easily accessible and has very friendly staff. The steak pie I had was hot and very tasty and filling. The interior was a little tight and slightly dated but we were seated easily. Both my wife and I enjoyed our food and the service. We would... More
