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.
