Blackpool has so many fantastic places to eat, but our delightful Palm Court restaurant is the place for a sumptuous, relaxing dinner. The Victorian dining room is full of grandeur and our restaurant team always go that little bit further to make serving a meal a magical experience.

The views in the restaurant are spectacular, with sweeping vistas across the Fylde coast and the occasional heritage tram tootling by. Diners can soak in the scenery while enjoying fine dining from the table d’hôte menu that changes quarterly, according to the seasons.

We also have a range of daily specials, with our chefs using locally sourced produce whenever possible to ensure that only the best and freshest ingredients are used. The restaurant has flexible seating arrangements, so we can cater for large parties and children are also well catered for, thanks to the family dining options.

For guests not resident at the hotel, please be sure to enter your car registration details on arrival.

  • Afternoon Tea at The Imperial

    £20.50 per person

    Multiple dates available
    At The Imperial, you aren’t just offered a pot of tea and a bit of cake; the experience is composed of many delicious elements (both savoury and sweet!) that you’ll love. Not to mention the professional and attentive service from our talented team. You’ll be served a small cup of soup and a hearty sausage roll in addition to sandwiches, scones and cake. The sandwiches are delicate and tasty on soft bread. There’s nothing “usual” about the sweet treats, either! There’s an array of bite-sized delights which have been lovingly prepared to really showcase the talents of our pastry chef and to really tantalise the palette. We have a wide range of enjoyable teas, but if you want a little more drama in your afternoon tea, we can add some fizz!

    Fantastic food, we arrived late for dinner 20:00 and they still accommodated us for a later reservation....we had a wonderful seat overlooking the sea and the food was first class. My partner has Brisket of Beef and I had the Sirloin steak. Both cooked perfectly. We also stayed for three nights and the breakfast every morning was perfect. Great selection all round.

    Celebrating a double birthday with a friend, we were shown to a wonderful table overlooking the sea and promenade. 3 courses for £19.95. Salad bar for starters followed by a lovely roast beef with Yorkshire pudding, roast potatoes and fresh vegetables. A choice of desserts at the buffet. Service was professional and friendly and not rushed. Thank you to all the staff. Thoroughly recommend the Sunday lunch at the Imperial Hotel, Blackpool.

    Lovely classic hotel which is a bit worn in places but its character makes up for this Palm court restaurant is a nice venue, we attended for Sunday lunch We were escorted to a bay window (sea view which was a bonus) , two other tables for two squeezed into this space which isn’t ideal if you like a little privacy. Staff were lovely , pleasant , accommodating Buffet salad was limited to tomato , cucumber , coleslaw and watercress Buffet deserts good choice with choc mouse, two types of tart, profiteroles Main meal I thought the gravy was way too salty , the beef was tasteless and not tender . Vegetables lovely and Yorkshire pudding good We won’t return for this Sunday lunch menu but we will definitely try the a la carte menu next

    Left sitting in Reception for half an hour - table was booked at 2pm . Reception didn’t know where Afternoon Tea was to be served think focus was on the wedding taking place - fair enough ! Told Reception after 30 minutes we were leaving - they just replied ‘ok’ - very disappointing. Went to ‘Nellys’ & had fish & chips - great service & lovely welcome .

    Service Excellent, but if you are booked in for 12.30, the doors should be open and ready at 12.30 not 12.45. other than that I would be Dining here again.

    Good afternoon - apologies that we had a slightly slower start on Sunday; it was our first attempt running our Sunday lunch service, but we've already adapted our prep and we'll be raring to go this weekend! We hope to see you again soon!

    This time the food was mostly dreadful. Stale sandwiches, over baked scones which when cut broke into lots of pieces. Crusts still in some of the bread. The fillings were ok but the bread itself was hardened. Pastry on some of the savouries were also overcooked. Previously visited for afternoon tea and it was spot on. This time I’m afraid was awful. Derby room felt grubby and in need of TLC didn’t enjoy being sat at a coffee table. The other time I came we were in the magnificent dining room. Sorry but this visit fell far below our expectations

    Absolutely fabulous Afternoon Tea here - booked last minute whilst we were in a weekend away. Chris, our host, was excellent. Great service, attention to detail and extremely knowledgeable about the food, how it’s prepared and presented. Thank you Impetial - we will definitely be back.
