Description: Originally built as a fisherman's cottage over 200 years ago this building stood alone with the beach coming right to the front door long before the big hotels were beginning to appear on the promenade. Today still holding on to its character it is a English Steakhouse serving only the best British beef aged for 31 days. Along with the wide range of steaks we also serve several chicken, fish and a few pasta dishes including some vegetarian options. The Eating Inn has been run by the same family for almost 40 years and our team of servers, most of which are family are always going the extra mile to ensure our customers have the very best experience possible . Please book to avoid disappointment, and we will look forward to seeing you soon!

We looked for a good cafe to eat at in Blackpool on TripAdvisor, as there are so many to choose from and they could be good, bad or indifferent. TripAdvisor had great reviews for the Eating Inn, so we gave it a visit. We were delighted with everything here, it was well laid out, clean and tidy. We were welcomed and shown to a table, ordered and only waited a short time till the delicious soup arrived, followed soon after bu fabulous fish and scampi dishes. The staff were very professional and delightful to have a little chat with. We highly recommend all to pop in here for a really good meal and experience.

We came as a family of five on the recommendation of the Trip advisor reviews. Lovely homemade food and the steak was top restaurant quality! Will become a family favourite on our annual Blackpool trip!

Second time here and still doesn't fail to impress. Arrived in Blackpool today on holiday and all we wanted was steak from the eating inn after a long travel. Nothing can compare. Would recommend the fillet steak or the salmon. Fresh and fills the gap
... got all week in Blackpool so might make another visit

We are locals and came across this place as we were walking down the prom one afternoon. There were quite a few people sat outside so we had a look at the menu and decided to give it a go. Me and my partner got steak and chips and the little one had a kids burger and chips (big portions). The place was clean and tidy both inside and out, we sat inside as it was a bit chilly out. Waitress was very polite and took our order, there wasn't a long wait on food. The food was very tasty and cooked as we asked! Would definitely recommend and will return! a great little family run buissness

We visited family at the end of September and wanted somewhere to eat everywhere was busy and we called in here and they fitted us in straight away, 5 of us. It is a small restaurant and felt a bit claustrophobic but the food spoke for itself and was delicious. We had cannelloni, lasagne, gammon, salmon and ribs which were all really nice.
