Love coming here for a lovely meal and drinks, staff are brilliant and always very helpful. Very clean and lovely having music and live band
Excellent atmosphere, reasonably priced considering the sea views and exclusivity. Would definitely return, romantic setting or great for just friends going for drinks. Food was exceptional.
Been a few times now and as always our food was Lovely, the setting is beautiful and our waiter was just fab (clearly made for the hospitality industry) x
What a gorgeous place! Great food, fab cocktails and friendly staff. The location is awesome and the atmosphere is wonderful. Highly recommend. A fabulous night out!
Prior to a recent weekend visit to Blackpool, we'd found the Beach House online and booked for dinner on the Saturday night. That actually ended up being a third visit, as we had lunch there on the Friday and Saturday as well! The Beach House is the only quality restaurant on the promenade that overlooks the beach, and the atmosphere and service was relaxed and friendly both day and night. The menu is wide (wider at night) and varied: for lunch we enjoyed tapas one day, then fish and chips the next, and for dinner, beef sliders and a tropics-inspired pineapple rice dish with chicken and beef, all interestingly presented. The evening atmosphere was enhanced by gentle live music, creating a sophisticated, but cosy, beach bar vibe. Wish we lived closer to Blackpool to enjoy the Beach House on a regular basis.
We have dined there before so would always be returning. This time we had 2 friends who had never visited The Beach House. We dined Friday 5th May at 1900 hrs.......It was loud i.e 'lively' with a great buzz and feel in the atmosphere (some may not like that ? so it's personal preference...we did like it :)...very busy too. The staff were polite, helpful and attentive despite seemingly been rushed off their feet. The food was as before, very good with choices to suit everyone...what's not to like ?. Great choices of drink, some on the expensive side some may feel but the location, views of the Tower and the most gorgeous evening 'Sunset' is worth every penny. Highly recommended still ! and we will visit again - Thank you :)
We returned to the Beach House having previously only had drinks. As before, the premises was top class and such a welcome to Blackpool's re-invented 'front'. It is clearly a popular venue given the high amount of people dining so early booking is recommended !! The staff were very professional and polite and the solo guitar player made it a pleasant atmosphere. The menu had something for everyone, I had the 'mixed kebab platter for 1', my wife has the 'Pineapple Rice' and our close friend had the Fish & Chips...all were very pleased with the quality of food, presentation and range of drinks. We sat inside whilst eating then sat outside to watch the best ever 'sunset' into the late evening hours with more drinks. The owner presented himself on occasions asking if everything was OK.....which it was in the main and we will certainly return again for sure. The only issue that has made this review a 5 and NOT a 6 is that the service was disorganised and we ended up waiting a considerable time for ordered drinks and food. Let me explain, (waiting anything over 30-45 mins just for drinks/food is unacceptable), as I said, the staff were excellent !! however, there needs to be a duty manager keeping an 'overview' of the structure and organisation of 'service delivery' and it is this clear lack of management that evening that let the venue down. That said, we will come back again without doubt. Thank you for a very enjoyable evening overall.
The Beach House is a wonderful venue to eat or drink, the views are outstanding day or night. You really see Blackpool at its best. The Sun Lounge is lovely and warm even at this time of year. The food is superb with a really tasty Tapas menu to enjoy too - highly recommended. Staff couldn't be more helpful or polite, all of the time, and nothing is too much trouble. Find ourselves back there time after time and the whole family love it.
Elegance, Style, Class and A View. This is how I'd describe The Beach House. Food was exceptional and the Cocktails kept us there until midnight!! The place has a great vibe and turns into a bar more then a restaurant after 11. Staff are friendly and polite too. And the Live Music that night made our evening what it was. I wish I could spend every Saturday night there. It's hands down, my favourite destination in Blackpool!!
Visiting on a cold January evening we found the Beach House to be a welcoming drop of luxury in an otherwise baron Blackpool. Heaters were positioned throughout the outside conservatory doing a very good job. Service was polite, professional and un rushed which really impressed both my wife and I. The menu was a combination of tapas and pleasant European dishes which was wonderful. The Continental plater made a fantastic starter for two but could easily have be eaten as a main course. Sadly I had just one issue which didn't really spoil our visit but left us feeling a little disappointed. That was the price of the drinks. £10 for a Long Island Ice Tea & £7 for a large wine really pushed the bill up. £75 for two dinners sharing a starter and not eating deserts nor coffee is at the upper end of our budget. We returned again with friends on the Saturday evening and chose to sit inside. The food was wonderful yet again but buying a bottle of wine to share between the four of us was an inspired choice. Bringing the bill down to £45 per couple. All in all the Beach House is a stunning restaurant that I would have no hesitation in recommending to dinners who love great service & delicious food in a very modern setting.
