Excellent service, was given a table we didn't like near the doors and they moved us to a better one. Waitress was excellent and attentive, food was brilliant again

The food and service were both excellent. Cannot fault the restaurant at all. From being seated to paying our bill the whole dining experience was an absolute pleasure. We will be returning shortly!

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.

We went to The Beach House for a family lunch last Thursday and I have to say it was great. The food was really well prepared from an interesting menu, venue really well planned and I don't think the staff could have done any more to help, it was a really good relaxing chilled experience. We all look forward to going back. Rob, from Southport.

We came here tonight as we are staying over in Blackpool. This place is recommended by a lot of people and I had high hopes for tonight. We arrived 25 minutes early and told our table wasn't ready, which is fair enough as we were early. So we were told to wait in the bar however we were waiting next to the grill area with the smoke stinging our eyes and there was hardly any seats. We ordered a cotton candy and mojito, both were not that good and couldn't finish them. Our table was booked for 8pm but at 8:15pm we were still waiting. Other half went to the desk to see how long, turns out our table was ready but no one came to collect us. We were sat in the door way, next to the stage, in a poor lit area. Conversation was pointless as we wouldn't have been able to hear each other. We ordered a glass of champagne each and a main meal each. Took a while to arrive, which fair enough it was busy at the time but still we've had better waiting times in better places. When the meal came it was just good however the chicken was slightly burnt. but again service stopped, no one asked if we was ok or offered anymore drinks. Plates took a good while to be taken away. Then we weren't offered a dessert menu which was annoying as I wanted the brownie. In the end we were fed up of the poor service we had to ask for our bill as no one came 20 minutes after finishing the meal. I also forgot to mention on my Tripadviser review about staff just standing near the desk talking to other staff members. We dine out on a regular basis, usually in Manchester and sometimes London were service is second to none and our money is welcomed. We usually spend over £100 when we dine out just the 2 of us but here they lost out on a good £70 extra from us. We will not be returning to this place on our return to Blackpool, we know of better restaurants with excellent service in the town. Looking back on the reviews on here and Tripadviser they don't respond to any kind of review.

I was a little disappointed with where we were seated. I really wanted to be in the outside area with a sea view and we were told no and then guets arriving after us were seated there. if there is a system about having to specially mention you want to sit here when you book then this should be made clear on the website. I really didn't like the high barstool type seating that we were perched in for the duration of our visit. Just put normal tables and seats here instead of these, We had an incredibly long wait to be served- I mean even for someone to take our order and yes it was really busy but I think on being given menus we should have been asked if we would like a drink, we had to go to the bar. Not good at a restaurant table. These grumbles aside when we got our meal it was extremely good we had a lovely selection of tapas and staff were friendly and efficient, Its clearly the place where the cool and beautiful people of blackpool hang out. I would recommend it. .

The Beach House is situated in a great location close to the North Pier tram stop so you can literally step from tram to bar in a few steps. It has excellent views across the beach and out to sea which makes for a pleasant setting and the food was plentiful and tasty. The cocktails were mixed well and the wine chilled to perfection; very friendly staff who made you feel welcomed. Well worth a visit,

Fantastic Evening! Great food and beverage choice with something to suit all tastes. Food served promptly and staff had an excellent knowledge of the dishes on their menu and could make recommendations which were both appreciated and accurate. Atmosphere was great and the live music was incredible! Made a great night perfect. The best live music in a bistro we have witnessed for a long time. I have to say the staff are a true credit to the beach house. Despite a busy evening we felt like the only two customers in there they were so pleasant and attentive. Thoroughly enjoyable evening and we have recommended and will keep on recommending the beach house. Thank you for making my husbands birthday perfect xx

when we went on the evening of saturday 26th march there was a great atmosphere and vibe to the place, nice looking building, great staff who were always on hand if we needed anything (more drinks etc). the view of the sea was great as we had a window table and seeing the sun set was a bonus. In regards to the food, great and surprisingly cheap prices, lots of food on the plate for what you pay, it was a perfect night topped off with a live acoustic band playing as we ate and drank. Brilliant restaurant that i'd recommend to friends and family and a place we will certainly eat at again when we're in blackpool. Thankyou

Superb as always! I was with a party of five last Friday evening and we had a wonderful meal from the new menu. The lamb ribs were the best I have ever tasted with a delicious herby salad and spicy bulgur rice. The whole experience of the Beach House must be unique - with the surroundings and ambience overlooking the sea and stunning design of the restaurant and bar. We had an excellent white wine - recommended by our waiter - and thoroughly enjoyed our evening. We most certainly would not hesitate to recommend the Beach House to anyone looking for a quality modern restaurant with an excellent menu.

Brilliant food and excellent service. The only reason I couldn't give full top marks was because there were no filo rolls left on the night we visited. However the popcorn prawns were awesome, the melted brie was stunning and the chicken & chirizo skewers were to die for. I would thoroughly recommend The Beach House to anyone looking for great food and great location. A***

Food lovely and nice venue. We booked for our anniversary and on arrival we were shown a table in middle of restaurant. Asked to sit on table to the side as there were 2 available; however we were told they were for someone else and we had been allocated the table already. The restaurant is busy so learning is to specially request out of way table in advance if wanted as these requests aren't considered on the evening. Part of our decision to book there was the speciality drinks however request of a rhubarb organic gin and organic ginger beer mixer ( from menu) was delivered to table as Bombay sapphire gin and britvic tonic as they'd ran out of the one requested which was a bit disappointing . Overall it was a nice meal and we would probably go back but request to sit somewhere out of the way when booking to avoid being right in the middle of the restaurant.

Very surprising find in Blackpool, really elegant restaurant. You could eat from the main menu or tapas. We had tapas and it was excellent. We were going to watch something at the Winter Gardens so it was ideally located for this. We sat in the terrace area which was completely covered for winter and heated by heat lamps, so no coats required! You can see this area will be great in the summer when its uncovered as it is literally right next to the beach so you will get a great view. Just what Blackpool needed.
