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.

Absolutely horrendous experience for breakfast with my family. After waiting 10 mins for a high chair we were advised to order in the app which we done. Our drinks were poured and no staff delivered to table i had to go and ask to take...them to which i was told help yourself. Straight forward 2 small and 1 large breakfast and toast took an hour and 10 minutes to be delivered to the table. When it did eventually come the orders were wrong which we had to wait a further 10 mins to be fixed which resulted in the rest of the food being cold. I would understand these issues and delays if every customer was in the same boat but when surrounding tables came in after us got served ate their food and left before we had even been giving our food is shocking. No explanation from the 'manager' just a "sorry about that" as he passed our table after I asked to speak to him. I use wetherspoons up and down the UK almost on a daily basis for work and pleasure and I can safely say this is the WORST experience I've ever had in any of the chains pubs. If you can make it along to the other end of blackpool there is a spoons there which is 100% better friendlier and quickerMore

Came here for breakfast as its one of my favourite wetherspoons in Blackpool. The staff are nice and they are always very quick to serve you! I had the full large breakfast and it was so delicious and cooked fresh nothing wrong. My partner had...the breakfast wrap and said he really enjoyed it and it's just a nice wetherspoons so if your around pop in for breakfast! You will not be disappointed Best touch about it was sitting at the tables next to the fire. Oh it was nice and warm!More

This use to be great for food but the last couple of times we've eaten in there it's been rubbish. Burger and chips which arrived cold, the missus had chicken strips which were just about warm. I've realised there's no chefs which is probably why...the steaks have been taken off the menu. It's like a McDonald's people order their food and it's just being warmed up or not even that. I can honestly say for price the food is people should be having fresh hot food. Apart from this the place itself is nice, the toilets are upstairs and they do have a lift..More

The Velvet Coaster is a large multi-floored establishment. It has plenty of space and seating on all levels, including an open air rooftop area. As with other Wetherspoon’s there is an excellent selection of beers, wines and spirits, with the usual good value.

This Wetherspoons is probably the best I’ve ever been in. Admittedly it’s been a while since I’ve been in a Wetherspoons and much has changed. First of all, a big shoutout to whoever made the app, because it’s fantastic. Being able to choose your meal,...pay for it and have it in front of you without moving from your seat is fantastic. This brings me to The Velvet Coaster, whose staff seem to have this down to a tee. As soon as you order from the app, the speed of service is incredible. They are so fast and friendly too, I just couldn’t fault them. The food may be cheap and cheerful but there’s nothing wrong with that, especially when it’s cooked as well as it is here. If you want a cheap family breakfast or meal, make sure you visit The Velvet Coaster.More

Reasonable prices as always with Wetherspoons and very busy, which is pretty standard. I like how the name pays homage to to the first rollercoaster at Pleasure Beach. The drinks took a while when ordered via the app, but I mustn’t grumble too much as...it was a busy Saturday night. The food was cooked well and served quick, but the 11’ Garlic Bread left a lot to be desired. God knows what was out on it but it looked awful and tasted just as bad. Overall, a good place to visit if you’re this end of Blackpool and fancy cheap drinks and food.More

My wife and I were visiting family close by and we ate a very nice dinner here on the first night, for me some lovely hot chicken strips and my wife had a tasty pizza. We met up with my cousins every morning at 11:00...for coffee and a chat before going out for the day and it was perfect for us. The staff were all great, the service and the food too. Thank You!!!More

Called in out of the cold. Had small fish and chips with mushy peas and standard size burger and chips. Both meals included a drink - a pint of Guinness and a pint of shandy. £23. Coffee less than £2 and could refill as many...times as you liked. Food was hot and on hot plates (always a bonus.) Small fish and chips was plenty for me. The food was lovely and I couldn't fault it. We sat upstairs near the window and was waited on by a friendly, polite, dark haired young man. A very pleasant late afternoon. Recommended.More

Place itself clean and tidy. Ordered vegetarian breakfast, cold beans, snotty eggs, 'cooked' tomato just shown the pan, never actually made it in. The vegetarian sausages beggar belief, never had a sausage with zero flavour. I know it's a veggie sausage and all but I...think cardboard would have actually tasted better. Don't get excited over the free refills on hot drinks. Didnt have hot chocolate available and the cappuccino tastes I imagine similar to dish water.More
