Nice place if your not a veggie

Nice place to go for a drink. Have visited about 10 times. The food in there is above pub standard - so, so is the price. Lack of options if you're a veggie however

I really wanted to like it here... Because I like the pub part. But it's really not good value at all. But the couple of times I have eaten here there's been an unbearably strong smell of fish!? I know they sell it? But it's so strong that it over powers what you are eating? This time I had the... More

Stopping off on the way to Scotland from Sussex, seeing the excellent reviews for The Borough, we booked here for a night. It hasn't been open that long , but the hotel part adjoins the pub/restaurant next door and occupies the next door property which has been refurbished as 9 rooms but still retains many original features. There are many... More

I came to The Borough for my friend's birthday meal (there were 4 of us) and I chose the vegetarian platter which was delicious, especially the (homemade, I presume) hummus. I thought the food was good value for money. Drinks were a tad pricey but I guess they were of a similar price to most pubs/restaurants. The service was good... More

The Borough is in the centre of Lancaster, a brilliant pub and one of the best restaurants in Lancaster. Always good food, sometimes excellent!

We went to the Borough last Wednesday for an unplanned family get-together and they were able to accommodate our large group of 20 at very short notice. The food and service were great and it was a very pleasant meal. We were amazed how organised they were in getting all the food out at the same time and how attentive... More

Came to The Borough for Sunday lunch and as always was not disappointed. The roast beef dinner is to die for and the gravy is quite simply amazing. The trio of desserts are fantastic value and so is the free bottle of wine with 2 courses.The staff are always pleasant and lovely with us. The atmosphere is really vibrant, lots... More

Been there with my girlfriend, had a very romantic night in a very characteristic place, with great service, awesome food, particularly meat, steaks and potatos. Respectable wine list. (And I'm Italian)
