“Excellent Value for Money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

This carvery is excellent value for money with choices of meat and vegetables plus a Yorkshire pudding if you want one. My friends and I like to watch how high some people pile up their plates with the vegetables as if they had not eaten for a few days! All this for under £4.00. The staff are pleasant and obliging. Nearly forgot the sweets/puddings are highly recommended as well. Worth noting that beef is now only available Friday to Monday.

Well worth a visit if you are in Blackpool.

“Good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2013

Three of us visited this carvery last week and must say it is one of the best we have been too, three choices of meats and plenty of vegetables done just right. The roast potatoes, excellent and the Yorkshire puddings topped it all off. All this during the week for less than £5 each, we had a job to walk out we were all that full. I must say that all staff are very pleasant and give very good service, well done to all. So, if in Blackpool try this place you won't be disappointed.

“Excellent value carvery”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2013

The Saturday carvery offered a choice of 3 meats (beef, ham or turkey) - small helping or large, depending on price paid at the bar - plus a help-yourself selection of vegetables and sauces. I chose the beef (small helping - one slice with one Yorkshire pudding) and found it very flavoursome, excellent value for money. The dining-room is (relatively) spacious, separate from the bar with its TV, and suitable for families - wheelchair and pushchair accessible from the car park outside.

“Cheap but very cheerful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 October 2013

The Squirrel is a typical Crown carvery we dined on a Wednesday the bar staff who took our order where friendly, the dining room was busy as normal dissapointing there was no Beef its apparently only served towards the weekend they had yorkshire puddings but no beef and minted gravy but no Lamb must be a northern tradition we where tempted by a sweet and plumped for the trifle it was overflowing the dish, the waitress was extremely jolly and tended to the mess we had made due to the over filled sundae glasses,but in all great value,the only on going problem with Crown Inns is one day everything is great and the next visit its a disaster thats a problem they have country wide.....

“Fantastic food. Warm and welcoming”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2013

I Was in this pub on monday with friends it was such a cosy place the staff really made you feel welcome. I would recommend this place for all occasions. Fresh veg meats and finally proper mash potatoes and at a price of only 4.19 for a roast dinner with all the trimmings, who could complain. Will be returning very soon for my birthday.
