Greene King pub that has a good selection of real ales and reportedly offers a discount for CAMRA members. Although, we weren't offered. I did enquire about real cider, but was told that for real cider I needed to visit a Wetherspoon's, at which I bit and state that there are many more decent pubs that sell a real cider or two. Service certainly wasn't the friendliest, unless you're one of the regulars. Tourists are treated as a bit of an inconvenience.

The single room is L-shaped, with a pool table at one end. There are a few little nooks and crannies in which to enjoy a meal or a quiet(ish) drink, but the overall feel is open-plan.

I came here once before one night in 2016. The pub had a completely different feel during the daytime. A few were in, but it was much quieter than the last time I was here. TVs were showing some kind of sport that nobody was interested in.

Morland Old Speckled Hen is the regular beer here. I remember having it the last time. Guests on this occasion were Timothy Taylor Landlord, Bank Top Pavilion Pale Ale, Fuzzy Duck Jarrylo, Big Bog Padi & Pennine Scapegoat.

As noted below this is a Greene King pub but one that does guest ales so you're not cornered into trying to force down an IPA or Old Speckled Hen. It's a large open plan L shaped room which had just one other punter on my January Wednesday night visit and the TV screens were blasting out some rubbish music from a radio station.
The bar has eight hand pumps which had three of the dullest GK beers, Robinson's Trooper, Mauldon's Bronze Adder, Lytham Bailey's Blinder & Bad Bit and Old School Headmaster. I had time to try the Bailey's Blinder and Headmaster before they closed and they were in good enough nick. I didn't think too much of this place but it does have a range of beers and this is Blackpool so there's probably loads of worse pubs.

A fairly decent pub. A single room from what I made out and it had several handpumps on the bar of which 4 dispensed real ales. Its pot luck in Blackpool as to whether you pop into a decent pub, an average pub or a fat belly, rough as f**k, karaoke nightmare. I thought it was ok.
