“Faith Restored in Wetherspoons”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

After a previous disasterous meal at The Golden Bee in Stratford I promised that i'd never go into a Wetherspoons restaurant again. It's taken almost a year but I decided to give my local Wetherspoons a try and I can honestly say that my faith in Wetherspoons has been completely restored. The service was excellent and the food was freshly cooked and delicious so much so that i've been back again. The price of the food was also really good. Absolutely no complaints from me from this Wetherspoons.

“High class of pub food”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

The are often perceptions of pub food, and more specifically Wetherspoons food, but we can honestly say that the food we experienced in The Railway Hotel, Lytham, really was top quality. Great value for money, very appertising, and delivered to your table very quickly. There is a great selection on the menu, and there are usually 'deals of the day' on where you get a usualy menu option, cheaper than usual.

“Brilliant”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

Everything seemed brand new so guessing this has recently been refurbished as we aren't from the area. The place was packed to the rafters most of the time, but there appeared to be plenty of both bar staff and waiting staff on so we didn't have to wait long to be served. Food was decent enough, you only get what you pay for & at the end of the day it was good value for money. I think all the staff should receive a pat off the back from management as they coped admirably on what was an extremely busy day when Tom Jones was in town. A good atmosphere and pleased we managed to find it.

“Improvements have been made”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

We travel to Lytham specially and one of the reasons is that this Wetherspoons is better than others. My previous review in June made mention of improvements being required, so after several visits recently I can say that improvements have been made and that this Wetherspoons is back where it was.
The bar staff numbers have been increased which means very little waiting at the bar. There seems to be a friendlier vibe with the staff, especially when serving your food.
One area which could still be improved on is the cleanliness of tables and the removal of empties.
Look forward to our next visit.

“Good value for money”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

Visited here recently. This Weatherspoon's establishment has been renovated from the old station hotel, it was very clean and had both railway and golf themes running throughout the building. Bought one pint and an orange cordial for £2-20p which is very nearly half the price of other places. Will certainly visit again when in Lytham St Annes.
