Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We booked for a 3 night stay at the Dutchman recommended by a friend - we were not disappointed, we were made to feel so welcome after walking through the door , the nightly entertainment (Fri/Sat/Sun) excellent and the breakfast was just unbelievable- so much...choice and so nicely cooked and presented - only down side was the small room ( but when I booked I was told it was a ‘budget double ‘ ) but that was all that was available - will definitely be back- thank you to all the team at the hotel you should be proud of yourselvesMore

I booked online for a carvery meal based on reviews. Unfortunately, I have to say we were very disappointed with the ambience, service and food. We walked in to find the staff didn't really seem willing to explain how the carvery worked (the food was...all covered up on a serving bench, we didn't even know if they were actually having a carvery. I explained this was our first time and we didn't know how it all happened. We weren't shown to a table (there was only one other couple there), just told to pick one. We then went back to the bar as no food was showing and was told we needed to order and pay at the bar, which we did. Still no food showing so had no idea what was on offer. We stood by what we hoped was the food bench and another gentleman came up, took some covers and there were some very small deboned joints of meat. My son chose turkey, I had beef and gammon (it was called ham by the server). All I can say is the turkey was sliced in very small bits. It looked like it had been pre-chewed. My beef and gammon were ok, they actually sliced. We then helped ourselves to some very ordinary vegetables (carrots etc) and roast potatoes. The potatoes were soft, the vegetables were just right.I suspect the roast potatoes had been fried like chips rather than oven roasted. We had ordered two courses but left before we'd even finished the roast. The tables were clean but some training is needed on how to make customers feel welcome and hospitality skills for the servers. We paid £7.95 which is reasonable, but not given what we managed to eat. I am afraid if you want to remember that time you prepared a bad roast lunch (we've all cooked them) this is the place to visit. If you want something special, go elsewhere.More

We walked past and saw a sign saying they do Sunday carvery. As there is literally not many places in Blackpool that do carvery we decided to give it a try. So glad we did as it was perfect! The meat was lovely and all...the veg/ gravy was cooked perfect and tasted homemade! We couldn't fault it one bit. We also had a nice view of the prom. Will defenitly be back again and will try there other meals out to!More

Went in for dinner and as it was between 5 and 6pm, there was an offer of Starter and Main course for £9.95. The food was excellent, both starter and main, both were chicken, and very generous portions. Lovely chips too. Highly recommend this place....If you can get a seat at the window, its just overlooking the Prom, so plenty to keep you amused before the food arrives.More

Walked along the front trying to find somewhere cheap that suited all tastes (3 adults and 3 kids). Found this cute little bistro cafe which had something for everyone. Lots of choice for a good price. Food came quickly, piping hot. Burger was huge I...couldn’t finish it. Pie had lots of steak in it and the little ones loved their food, drink and ice cream. All in all a good find. 😊More

I live in Blackpool and don’t always want to cook for myself or do the pub thing. I have eaten at the promenade bistro a number of times, mainly on Sunday when they do a superb carvery. The place is clean, the staff are very...friendly and the food has always been first rate whilst feeling home cooked. When I have visited through the week the menu is reasonably priced, straightforward but with enough choice to want to try a variety of dishes. I will continue to visit on a regular basis.More

We visited Blackpool for one night and stayed in a hotel on the seafront about a mile from this eatery. We initially wanted a Beefeater type pub to eat at but couldn't find anywhere close enough (walking distance) so we found this using tripadvisor and...booked using the link available in the app. We had a pleasant walk to the Dutchman Hotel which this Bistro is a part of. First impressions were that it was more like a café. We'd only booked 45 minutes previous to arriving and were pleasantly surprised to find that our table had been reserved. We took our seats and were offered drinks almost immediately. Service was very quick. The menu has a decent range but not extensive. It has burgers, fish and chips, steak pie (highly recommend!), gammon among a few other things. The food was gorgeous... would definitely recommend this place if you're after somewhere cheap and cheerful that serves good food and has a bar. Kids get free ice cream with their meals.More
