Bright open plan Wetherspoons with Albert being eaten by the lion in full view (if I remember correctly). Usual Spoons problem of not enough staff and dirty tables during busier times but it also gets brownie points for the selection and condition of the cask ales on offer. In short a typical Wetherspoon pub with all the regular attributes and minus points. For Blackpool it is a good option.

Large barn of a Wetherspoons underneath Blackpool Tower. Packed with lads and hens suffering badly from Blackpool excesses, all still getting served despite their condition. At the bottom end of the Wetherspoons chain in quality but still decent as far as Blackpool pubs go. The beer we eventually got was very ropey.

A prominent Wetherspoon pub underneath the famous tower on the Promenade. It occupies a large open space and thereís plenty of tables which get full when the tourist season (which is most of the year) is on, and donít forget the groups of night revelers all year round. Itís comfortably decorated with dark wood furnishings in a dimmed light environment. The bar is well stocked with two rows of ale pumps on long bar area to help cope with the busier times. During the day children are allowed and you can sit outside for a sea, tram and road view, but if the wind is up you wonít last long out there.
