This was the one of the best 2 pubs we found on our weekend in Blackpool.

The other one being The Little Black Pug on Talbot Road.

The Truncheon has a very traditional pub d├ęcor inside with beams and wooden floorboards, with part flagstone floor around the fireplace.

Very friendly nice mix of people in the pub. It's on a back street with nothing much on it, so the chances of getting invaded by stag party lager louts are minimal.

They had 4 real ciders in those box things on the bar, but sadly the draught cider was Strongbow ... which I can't stand.

It's also the CAMRA 2017 Blackpool area pub of the year.

Visited here at the start of October while in Blackpool with the family. I could have dragged them into a Spoons but saw the signs for this pub boasting real ales and being family friendly, thought I would check it out. It doesn't look much from the outside (a bit run down, even) but on entering it looks much more promising.

I went for a pint of Lytham Blonde, there was another by Lytham on plus a couple of other "unusual" ales. I could have spent a while in there but alas I was only staying for one! The pub is fairly traditional looking, plenty of wood, and police paraphernalia.

Definitely recommended.

The Pump & Truncheon was my favourite pub I tried in Blackpool this weekend. I arrived quite late on Saturday evening and was the last to be served before they shut up shop for the evening. The pub has a fairly basic interior that was decked out for Halloween. Being at the rear of the main buildings of the Promenade, it was quiet enough to enjoy a couple of swift halves, but busy enough to have an atmosphere. The barmaid was friendly. 6 ales were on - Pig Iron EPA, Cottage Red Fang, Bristol Beer Factory Enigma, Sharps Doom Bar, Cross Bar Witching Hour & Fuggle Bunny Brew House Cotton Tail. Ciders and perries were Aspalls Waddlegoose Lane Blueberry, Lilleys Sunset Cider, Snails Bank Tumbledown Perry & Very Perry, Cock Eyed Mad Jack, Cotswold Cider Company Yellow Hammer & No Brainer & Orchard Pig Maverick. Recommended.

We were in Blackpool for only two and a half days, and ended up in here on the second and third. Would have stayed longer, but train was booked.
Excellent ale, very friendly, chatty and knowledgeable staff. (Thanks Alex and Louisa)
THE place to go in this hell-hole. Local regulars are a great laugh.
We shall definitely return.

I quite liked the 'rustic' feeling of this pub, which gives it a bit of character in town otherwise known for kitsch faded glamour. This is a refreshing step back to reality. You're in a Blackpool side street, you duck into the Pump & Truncheon for some proper beer and quickly settle into one of the few pubs not blaring out karaoke and selling fizzy swill passed as beer. They had three ales on tap and several real ciders. Prices were very good and they offer discount to CAMRA members.
