user reviews of the Layton Rakes, Blackpool

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

The Layton Rakes is one of 3 Wetherspoons in a small area between the town centre and the Promenade. There's enough space to accommodate the mixture of drinkers - old folks, stag & hen parties and me! A number of bouncers were on the door, primarily to deter underage drinkers. The ale choice was typical of the chain - Coach House Raspberry, Moorhouses White Witch & Pendle Witches Brew, Greene King Abbot, Swannay Dark Monro, Ruddles Best & Sharps Doom Bar. Ciders were Old Rosie & Black Dragon. I didn't visit the roof terrace. But it looked quite a nice space when I saw it from the top of Blackpool Tower.

A weekend of football and pub ticking in Lancashire start's at this large 'spoons near Talbot Square that only opened in 2011.

I arrived at 11.45 on a pleasant Saturday in August 2015. With most of Blackpool already heaving the Rakes was an unexpected oasis of calm, very different to Yates's next door!

3 floors to this pub, there’s a bar on the ground and 1st floor, the top level is the roof terrace. The ground floor bar has the most ale pumps, 8 hand pumps with 3 more on the 1st floor. All the usual mix of 'spoons national ales supplemented with several local offerings, my pint of Prescott Chequered Flag @ 4.1% is a decent drop and very good value at £1.80 a pint.

As I said the pub is an oasis of calm with plenty of staff behind the bar as well as serving food & cleaning tables. Being new the interior is very modern with plenty of light coming through the windows and doors. There’s the usual array of fruit machines etc.

For Blackpool this is a very decent Spoons'.
