A group of 16 of us visited the Borough for my boyfriends birthday. We had booked the table in advance and we had also submitted a pre-order the day beforehand. The service was good, the atmosphere was good and the food was good, when everyone finally ate. Most of our table ordered steaks and it felt like one of the... More

No, not 'Fawlty Towers' but Faulty Towers!!! My husband and I enjoyed a very, very funny evening with an interactive theatre company performing as the lead characters from the original Fawlty Towers. It was a thoroughly enjoyable evening with all the usual antics you would expect - for people of a certain age, and enjoyable for younger ones too. Manuel... More

Visiting the borough for the umpteenth time. Such a lovely place and the food is great. We visit the borough often for food and also in the evenings for drinks, it never disappoints and we will be back again soon

After several visits to the Borough, including dinners and staying in the accommodation, we went these for a late lunch on a trip to Lancaster. We checked the website which showed the restaurant was open all day, however, when we got there we were told there was no food service because of a 'Faulty Towers' event that was on. We... More

We ate here a few times for lunch and dinner. The menu has the usual pub-grub (steak, burger, fish and chips) but my favourites included the home-made soups. The staff are friendly and informal (and quite stylish), which helps to create the relaxed atmosphere.

As always I am never disappointed going to The Borough for a drink and again for the 4th year running the beer was great, the atmosphere was super and I love those comfy chairs in the bay windows. I wish Lancaster had more bars of this type of class!!

Food was good,but rather expensive for what it was. We had 3 burgers, a bottle of wine(one of the cheaper ones) and 2 puddings for almost £100 - a lot for a pub! If you want a quiet meal you may want to go somewhere else it was very noisy, but maybe it was because people were having Xmas meals....

Have been with my girlfriend and her family and would say that it is the best place I have been for food in Lancaster. I had the steak and it was fantastic, great food, nice area, good prices. Would recommend to anyone looking for dining in the Lancaster area.

We went there for our Christmas party. The small space was crammed with people thus the noise level was phenomenal. Talking to other people was virtually impossible, as one had to shout at each other to be heard. This got even worse when the DJ started playing even louder music. On the bright side, the food was okay, but not... More
