The pump and truncheon was recommended as best pub friendly pub in Blackpool. Can't say if it is as we only found one other but this one was our favourite. Don't be put off by the outside appearance - it is warm and welcoming inside. A little quirky perhaps but glad we visited. Unfortunately it doesn't do food as such. The barman did offer a choice of pizzas but we decided to try elsewhere for lunch. A mistake as we failed to find anywhere we could take our dog and it was a cold drizzly day so eating outside had little appeal, even though in the end we had no option.
