The review, from late February, says: “Went here tonight. Was asked a few questions back in my day, but tonight was an absolute joke that I’ve never been so ashamed of in my life.

“Asking if any of my guests had cannabis on us! How would you know what the cannabis looks like? Are you sure it wasn’t you?

Also make sure your chef wears a hat in the kitchen. I’m glad we went out rather than going to McDonalds and giving them my money.

“Have you forgotten this is Blackpool right in the city centre? The management is a joke, stay away.”

The controversial review was picked up by management who, in a short response, fired back at the comment forcefully.

In response, management said, “Customers who stink of weed will be challenged. It stinks and clearly kills your brain cells.”
