This is a little gem. Small and personal. Lovely surroundings and the food is great. Would make a special trip to Blackpool just to eat here. You have to book but it's well worth it.

We booked in at McHalls because of the reviews on Tripadvisor. Having spent a freezing day exploring Blackpool we literally blew into McHalls chilled to the bone and very windswept. The area that the restaurant is in didn't look great, just around the corner from the Flying Handbag pub (love that name)! However rang the door bell and when the... More

The way Danny remembers what drink you like or where you prefer to sit really is testament to the quality of service you receive. The flavours in the food and the presentation... More
