The title of 'nicest' Spoons in the UK goes to The Velvet Coaster.

The pub is located at 501-507 Promenade in Blackpool, Lancashire and the 'form of the build was inspired by elements of the sea and the fact paced movement of the coaster which the building is named after,' as per JD Wetherspoons' website.

The original Velvet Coaster was an exciting new ride opened in the early 1900s.

"Its open carriages, with velvet seats, climbed a white wooden structure before sweeping down ‘humps’ and around ‘curves’ on two circuits of the track," the website continues.

The ride was later rebuilt in 1933, and is now named Nickleodeon Streak.

Fear not if rides aren't your thing, because you can take a trip to the Velvet Coaster pub instead - first opened in 2015.

The Velvet Coaster is located in Blackpool.

Rated as four out of five stars, the Spoons has received floods of positive reviews.

One Tripadvisor user wrote: "Great location on the beach. Lovely sunset views. Easy to get served. Staff clearing tables quickly. Visited each day of our stay. Better than the other Wetherspoons on the prom."

"One of the better Wetherspoons. Stayed in Blackpool for a few days and came here a few times, food good choice of beers good prices really reasonably and the location was good. Outside seating excellent especially as the weather was hot, the staff friendly and helpful would definitely recommend this place and next time we come to Blackpool we will definitely come here," another added.
