“Rubbish”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2014

From the outside looks nice, menu looked good, inside was deserted and dirty. When ordering food, staff seemed fed up of life. Lots of choices on the menu and good price too, however they didn't have much food in, basic stuff like salad not in, pasta not in. Kids meals was the same too, lots of choices but limited to food in stock. Barmaid didn't really care, couldn't offer alternative. Would not recommend to anyone based on my experience. I've been to some bad places this has been worse.

“Great Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

On our first night in Blackpool, we were looking for somewhere to eat and went into The Counting House. There was only five minutes left to order food, so we chose the mixed grill. It was excellent, with the steak cooked to perfection, and tasty local sausage too. The gammon and chicken was also lovely. We left feeling full and satisfied.

“Food was poor and it was quite smelly!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

A group of us went to this pub for a bite to eat on a Saturday late afternoon. The pub wasn't busy so we got a table easily for our group of 12.
When you walked in to the pub there was a strange smell, not too sure what it was but as some of our group had already settled down we decided to stay.
The food was pretty poor with the chips tasting like they had been cooked in dirty fat.
Staff were friendly and service was fast.
