The Lifeboat is one of Blackpool’s oldest pubs. Located about four doors away from The Aberford, the Lifeboat has entertainment on most nights a week, including the famous Bandeoke, where you can do your best karaoke in front of musicians rather than backing tracks. We love it and spend probably too much time there!
The Pump & Truncheon
The Pump &Truncheon is a few minutes walk from the Aberford, and has a huge reputation for excellence. This is a proper pub. with a roaring coal file and a wide selection of real ales, exceptional live bands the Pump is one of our favourite pubs in Blackpool!!
Reputed to be the oldest pub in Blackpool, it is certainly the smallest! The Mitre is a great place to get out of the throng for an hour, the service is always good and the food excellent. If you are nearby you should definitely pop in!
Buckinghams on Queen Street
Buckinghams on Queen Street is a gem of a pub, it has only been trading for five years but has developed a reputation amongst locals for great (and cheap) beer, friendly atmosphere and fantastic entertainment. It has the unusual practice of having table service only which enhances the cozy atmosphere and it really is a lot of fun!
Whittle Springs. The whittle is a fantastic blend of an unpretentious and friendly atmosphere and brilliant music. Be warned though you may not want to leave, the music alone is grounds for staying all night long!
Scruffy Murphys is always a Blackpool favorite. It serves great food at reasonable prices, and great portion size. With friendly service and great bands and karaoke Scruffy murphys is always a hit.
Slightly more off the beaten track is the Saddle. Another one of Blackpool’s oldest pubs, the Saddle is almost exclusively local. It is well worth the trip however, with great real ales and great food you won’t be disappointed!
Anyone familiar with Wetherspoons will know what to expect from the Albert and the Lion. Recently opened, the Albert is a modern pub which serves great food and very good prices. It also has a unique rooftop outside bar which is worth a visit!
The Rose and Crown
The Rose and Crown is a sister pub to the Pump. It is a family friendly pub which serves great food and real ales. It has a huge heated outdoor patio and serves from 9.30am until late!

The Ardwick Pub, just around the corner from the Aberford, is a great place to watch sport! It has full Sky sports and ESPN pacckages, and you can watch the football, rugby, darts and horse racing as well as a lot more!
Nightclub - Revolution
Revolution is a relative newcomer to Blackpool, but has hit the spot for may as a superior quality venue. Serving mainly cocktails in a stylish and swanky setting, Revolution is definitely is a go to venue!
Nightclub - Flares
Flares Blackpool is a 70’s themed bar and does not disappoint! If you want a place to strut your stuff in a carefree fun loving atmosphere then this is for you. Leave all sense of style at the door and embrace the 1970’s in a genuinely good party atmosphere!
Nightclub - Walkabout
No night out would be complete without a visit to Walkabout bar, the famous Australian themed bar guarantees a good time, and Blackpool Walkabout is no different. Walkabout recently suffered a major fire and many feared it would not return. However in that resourceful Australian way Walkabout is back, completely refurbished and is even better than before! Walkabout is a fantastic bar to go to, popular with students, and has an amazing array of party games which continue into the early hours! It also has probably the best smoking area in Blackpool!
Nightclub - Ma Kelly’s
Unique to Blackpool is the Ma Kelly’s chain of cabaret bars. There are three Ma Kelly’s in Blackpool, South shore, Foxhall Village, and Central. All day, everyday, there is a huge amount of cabaret acts, from noon till 1am, which far outweighs any other for sheer variety, nowhere comes even close! MaKelly’s Foxhall is literally a minutes walk from the Aberford!
Nightclub - The Flagship
The Flagship is situated a five minute walk from The Aberford, and so is a definite destination for stags/hens wanting to kick off their night with a bang. Always lively and busy, this is Blackpool! We never get bad reviews from those who visit (if they remember).
Nightclub - The Merrie England
The Merrie England is at the front of North Pier and is a brilliant day/night out! During the week it hosts mainly children’s entertainment, however weekends are a different story entirely. If you have never seen the Joey Blower show you simply cannot leave Blackpool until you have. Its on in the afternoon so you won’t be missing out on your night. The Joey Blower Show is the funniest, most outrageous and unforgettable thing you will see. Its very much audience participation so if you are easily offended I wouldn’t bother! Just remember, don’t ever, ever, let Joey get hold of your phone!!
Nightclub - The Soul Suite
The Soul Suite is bang in the center of Blackpool, virtually opposite Walkabout and Flares. If you love your soul and Motown this is the place for you! This is a relaxed, more mature party atmosphere and is great if you just want to swing the night away. Soul suite also has an upstairs balcony, from where you can chill for a while overlooking the Promenade in full swing to recharge!
Nightclub - Yates
Of course Blackpool has a Yates! Yates would not miss out having a venue in Blackpool! Yates also suffered a catastrophic fire a few years ago and unfortunately had to move from its historic building. However its new venue is fantastic! Yates does what Yates does, and Blackpool does it best!
