|Quite a haven for real ale drinkers who don't like Wetherspoons (Which is all of them.) It's my pub of choice in Blackpool and a great little back street pub with friendly staff and a charming atmosphere. Usually sees Cross Bay beers which is brilliant. Although I've never seen it really busy at all, there is usually chatty locals in there and real ale drinkers. |
Worth a visit, if I was going to mention any pub in central Blackpool to go for, this would be my #1.

|Hadn't been in for many a long year so rectified that before the football (it's an easy walk from the pub to the ground). A range of beers - I enjoyed a Jennings ale and a very good chicken wrap. Busy as you might expect on a football Saturday but home and away fans mixed comfortably - I think the real ale was a common bond! Was originally a Hogshead and still shows signs of their interior decor! Could probably now do with a facelift but is still probably the best boozer in this part of town and always worth a visit.|

|Don't let the pealing dark paint outside put you off, this is a gem in Blackpool as most of the other places are dumps. Sited just south of the tower and on a back street by the cop shop. 6 real ales on and a continual change over according to beer signs hanging from the bar ceiling. While the beer is smooth up north the prices are low thank goodness. Most were northern beers, including Jenning's and Clark's, except for Pedigree on this day. All were fine. My female chum states the female loo was civilized. Wooden interior with no stupid carpet in sight, and a lot of bare brick wall. Drinkers were a mixed bunch, not just in for the football, but mostly hiding from the awful weather. The pool table took too much space up which could be a problem on a busy day. Certainly worth going to.|

|A bit run down and tatty looking. Ale was okay but route to bar was obstructed by dozey Jeremy Kyle-ites with beneift brats in baby buggies. Posh by Blackpool standards though.|

|Pleasant town centre back street boozer. Black & white Tudor exterior. Inside its open plan, rustic & bare with a stone floor & log fire. Decor on the walls as the name suggests is police themed with plenty of shields on the wall from various police forces. 12 whiskies & Belgian beers on offer as well as cask ales. Worth a visit. The only downside was the gent's toilets which absolutely stank on my visit.|
