“the veg korma was out of this world”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

i feel i have to write this review as me and my partner had a korma and these happened to be the last kormas available. The people opposite us also ordered a korma and unfortunately they received the wrong food. In all my 40 years of visiting restaurants and eating out i have never witnessed such rude customers and unwilling to listen to anything the very helpful and kind manager was offering to try and correct the situation. Having read the above review i felt it was my duty to give a true and unbiased account of the incident. A mistake happened which does occasionally and i have never witnessed such an unreasonable customer in all my time!!! They were given a full refund and free meals and the manager asked if there was anything else he could do. They said it wasnt good enough. I ask what else could have been done in this situation??Hoorah to the Buccaneer shame on Celia M . On a positive note we would definitely return to the BUccaneer and the korma was excellent.

“This is the pits. ”
Reviewed 14 July 2014 via mobile

We went with three vegetarians. Ordered veg curry and we were served chicken curry. The manager was very ignorant. When I complained he told us he had refunded the food and offered us a drink spoken to the kitchen. " What else do you want me to do".But the person who was upset has never eaten meat for religious reasons and had eaten some thinking it was quorn. And was understandably distressed. I'm so disgusted.

“Fun for kids”
Reviewed 14 July 2014 via mobile

Being a Disney Parks fan, I really appreciated the attention to detail on the pirate theme! The tables, chairs, staff uniforms, decor, even restroom signs were spot on. Food was standard pub/chain restaurant fare but pretty decent nonetheless. It's a great, reasonably priced place to take the family to eat.

“Better than it looks from the outside”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

We wanted a cheap tea before heading home, and this place was recommended by friends. There was 11 of us eating, which was no problem for the restaurant.
The food took about 20 minutes to arrive from ordering it, portion sizes were good. The food was ok, nothing to write home about, but it was satisfactory.
It's a quirky little place, with the staff dressed in an unusual uniform, but they were all attentive and efficient.
On a final note, it was nice to have a doorman on the front door stopping hen/stag do's from coming in

“Great food and great price”
Reviewed 12 July 2014 via mobile

We visited the Buccaneer twice with our 2 girls during our stay in Blackpool mainly because of the quality of the food, but also because the kids ate for free (when also purchasing adult meal) which made it even better value.
Burgers are huge and get plenty of chips with it, and the steak was cooked to perfection.
Kids enjoyed the lasagne, although the kids curry was a little spicy for their taste.
Will definitely go back on our next trip to Blackpool.
