Treated myself to lunch in the informal Rotunda bar in the iconic Midland Hotel. Unfortunately, there was nothing iconic about the experience. Cold plastic chairs and tables in the cold windows, or dark enclave with no view. I chose a window table. My burger was hardly a triumph of the chef's art. In fact, I've had its equal in McDonald's... More

Tried the cocktails and the snacks in the bar during our stay and we were not disappointed ! The cocktails were great and food delicious. Great place to watch the sun go down even in winter .

Had lunch here very recently - freshly cooked food that was well presented and good sized portions too. Would definitely eat here again.

Over priced, food was disappointing , had to share portions of butter and jam which is rediculous considering the price. Shared tea pots, only one type of jam. Lactose intolerant option was terrible, portions rediculously small. Would never go back here again, shame as the view is spectacular

The Rotunda is a pleasant Bar with a great view of the bay. The beer compared to the surrounding area is a little expensive, but it is a beautiful building and great decor. My only real issue with the place is the food. I have eaten twice and the food isn't good for the price. So my suggestion is go... More

Went for lunch at the Rotunda Bar. I had 3 tablespoons shrimps, 2 slices bread and a few green leaves - outrageous at £9. My companion fared better with a cheese & veg platter with a generous portion of olives. Sadly, these were of such poor quality they were inedible. Pot of tea (good) for 2 over £6. Bar very... More

We popped in during late afternoon for a coffee and had a couple of. Cocktails too with olives and bread. Lovely view from the cafe/bar. Reasonable prices given standard of hotel and the fact that there's no real competition nearby.

Went here for a drink after fish & chips at the clock tower cafe (separate review) and it was different and very good. As the name suggests it is round and a lovely building. It's also a gin palace! But they also serve good beer and cocktails. Sat outside enjoying a lovely view of Morecombe Bay, but would still be... More

We had seen Eric's statue, walked along the jetty and needed a cup of tea. We went to the fantastic Midland Hotel, Rotunda bar. We sat by the window and drank our tea. Biscuits were provided with it, these were delicious. The view was lovely as we could see the sea. The inside of the Rotunda was very ArtDeco. The... More
