Colin Walker left this review about Gillespies

Gillespies in Blackpool is a pub, which holds the CASK MARQUE award for serving great quality real ale. A large open plan pub. On April 29th 2014 sees the launch of a new folk club in Blackpool. It's at Gillespie's Bar on Topping Street and will take place on every last Sunday of the month.

Danny O'Revey left this review about Gillespies

Open plan bar designed for upright drinking, but there area tables and sofas. Wood floor, pastel green/white walls, Ikea slat blinds, sports on the tellys and sports flags on the ceiling. Its on a back street amongst some down at heal shops but its a pleasant feel inside and there is a roof/smoking terrace.

There is an average menu and 4 real ales, 2 Greene King products and Hardy & Hansons and a Belhaven on my visit. The beer is ok.
