Building Societies

Nationwide

9 Clifton St, Blackpool FY1 1JD, UK – 0800 554 0703

It was at Asda in Blackpool, we had called in for a coffee to get out of the rain, the staff were pleasant. The only thing that stopped it getting 4 stars was the time we had to wait to get our drinks I could understand if it was busy but it was fairly quiet that day

Been with Nationwide many years and never had a problem. Only drawback with the Blackpool Branch is the parking as there are only disabled bays. Staff are helpful and kind and knowledgeable.

Halifax

67/71 Church St, Blackpool FY1 1HU, UK – 01253 612614

It is a good place to get your banking needs done, there is staff on floor. 'So if you need help there is always some one there, "there is cash machines in side so if you need cash or need to check your balance it is there for your needs, the only thing I would add, if you are there to get some cash, then put your cash away before you enter into the busy Street.

This is not to bad a place to have easy excess to the cash machines, 'which are inside the building society, and can be a safe place to collect your cash put it away, before you go out side, into the busy streets,

Dental Surgeries

Ivory Dental Care

28A Whitegate Dr, Blackpool FY3 9AL, UK – 01253 392685

Converted town house into a dental practice with a lot of character. Very friendly staff. Parking can be difficult on busy surrounding streets. Newer sister practice on park drive.

I can't fault this practise. Starters they have lovely receptionist!! I have been coming to this practise since I was a child however In 2008 I went to university in Buckinghamshire and ended up staying down south. I still would never change my dentist. Recently I had major pain, I couldn't get seen by any emergency dentists down south. But when contacting Howard, he fit me in straight away. He really did go above and beyond in my 48 hours of agonising pain. He is truly the best dentist and I know everyone who has him would ageee!!

Blackpool Victoria Hospital

Whinney Heys Rd, Blackpool FY3 8NR, UK – 01253 300000

This is a lovely hospital very modern and up to date. The main entrance is very impressive. There are plenty of shops and a very nice restaurant. The menu is very good and the quality of the food is exelent. Price wise it is a little expensive but that is only to be expected. Obviously there are exelent facilities and acsses for disabled. There is a large multi story car park on the doorstep, so parking is not an issue. I found the staff there to be very pleasant and helpful, Although I was approached by a fluorescent jacketed job's worth who asked me to stop taking photographs ha ha turned out to be a car park attendant

I was recently admitted to the Victoria Hospital with a serious sepsis pneumonia condition, I can`t praise the staff, nurses, doctors and specialists that dealt with me enough, they were brilliant right from the beginning, all the staff were very busy but i always felt that they were doing their very very best to help me, i felt very comfortable that i was in the very best place, I can`t thank the nurses, doctors and the specialists that dealt with me. A big thankyou to the paramedics that came to my house ( Within 15 minutes) Can`t thank you all enough, soon after getting home i received my followup appointments to attend the hospital later on, their is a real proffesional and caring commitment that couldn`t be improved on. A Big Thank you to all the staff and doctors on Ward 7 where i spent most of my time, I am on the mend now thanks to you all, absolutely brilliant. Total dedication received from all the staff that helped me, I can`t thank you enough. All the very best and carry on the dedicated brilliant work that you are doing, Also a big thank you to the catering staff who provided nice meals and drinks through out the day, All the staff were so friendly and helpful. +++++ Five Star Treatment. Just to add i went for a check up the other day, everything going along nicely, Again all the staff and the specialist doctor i saw were absolutely brilliant, I am so impressed with the treatment that i have received that words cannot fully express how satisfied i am after a serious illness, again +++++ and carry on the first class work and care that you are doing, very well done to all the staff.

South Shore Primary Care Centre

Lytham Rd, Blackpool FY4 1TJ, UK – 01253 953001

Nice modern building with friendly and helpful staff. I find supporting minds extremely good and highly recommend them. For other people there are several different surgery's all under one roof with a chemist on the ground floor. Toilets and a lift are available for those in need. Parking spaces are limited, however there doesn't seem to be parking restrictions on neighbouring streets. That said allow extra time to find somewhere to park.

i had a bone graft done here and brilliant staff each and every one of them.i was really nervous and they were great.cant thank them enough

I recommend this company 100%. The two guys who arrived were bang on time and the work was completed super quick and with no fuss. I was doubtful that they would fit everything from the garage onto their lorry, but they did and managed to take some old furniture from the house too. Everything was left completely spotless. I would definitely use this company again.

Truly fantastic clear out done by JOB Logistics Ltd. Amazing job done efficiently and quickly and even stayed back to sweep up any remaining debris to complete a very thorough job. Great job well done !

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Blackpool

Beachcomber Steakhouse

499 Promenade, Blackpool FY4 1BA, UK – 01253 402700

A weekend in Blackpool, this place is perfect. Service great and attentive. Food cooked fresh. T bone steak,16oz and a lamb hot pot , enjoyment all round.

This restaurant is an amazing hidden gem on the prom. Perfect location for all the local attractions. Fantastic food and even better service and price. Staff were exceptional and very attentive just sorry I didn’t get their names to recommend. Accommodated our party of 10 no problem without reservation and catered for children and adults superbly. Just perfect for families who prefer more than the fish n chip diner or chain restaurants with a fab menu. Steaks and puddings were ace. Clean and well presented venue with dressed tables and lots of punchy colour. One of the highlights to our mid week trip to Blackpool. Thanks Beachcomber for making our family holiday memorable for all the right reasons.

Ambrosini's

19 Squires Gate Ln, Blackpool FY4 1SN, UK – 01253 298807

The place doesn’t look very fancy, but it makes up for this with super friendly and welcoming service. The waiters allowed us to customize our order and were very helpful. The chef even dropped by to say hello and check how we enjoyed our meal. We had a very nice pasta and a delicious dish with chicken breast in a rich tomato sauce infused with wine, many herbs and mild chili. Excellent price/quality. It was the best meal we had so far on our UK-trip, highly recommended!

This I a small restaurant seating about 20 diners. It has two sittings for that reason. 1800 and 2000. Parking is free for 2 hours on the road about 20 yards past the restaurant. The hosts manage the two sittings perfectly. You do not feel rushed if your in at 1800. But come 1950 your ready to leave it just works so well. The hosts are perfect and the food is the best Italian in Blackpool. It's only just in Blackpool at Squires gate, after the meal the chef comes out to chat. Amazing place. Eat here. Not expensive. Great .

Amaro Restaurant

109 Church St, Blackpool FY1 1HU, UK – 01253 299644
