The saddle is one of the best real ale pubs in Blackpool if not the best.The pub has won the camra pub of the year and other awards.The pub has two regular cask beers in Thwaites and Bass,and six guest beers,one of them always being a cask mild. It is great to see a bar with Wells, Youngs,Adnams plus others including micro brews just waiting to be sampled and knowing that the next time you visit most will have changed to other brews just as good.They have there own beer festival,using the pub and a marquee on the beer garden.Dont miss this pub if you visit Blackpool.

Called for lunch after reading previous reviews on this site. Good service. Very good beer. Fabulous food. Outstanding prices. So impressed were we that we also called for dinner the same day... same story. One of my all time favourite pub experiences.

Once again another great show of guest cask beers.I tried the Morrisay blonde ale which i had never heard of and it was really good.The pub was really busy but the service was good .

Visited the Saddle this lunchtime mainly to get an image of the pub but decided to have a pint and a sandwich.The bar was a sight for sore eyes with six cask guest beers,most of them i had not seen before as well as the two regular beers Bass and Thwaites.I had a pint of Summer Sunshine which was top class,i was sorry to have to leave after just a pint but we shall return later in the week and hope there is still some left.
