As soon as we planned a wedding date, we'd looked at places around the district to host our relatively small wedding reception (24 guests). Well, what can I say? The service and communication was second to none. From the start, they were very accommodating and they were extremely flexible about the menu choices, letting us mix set menus with the... More

We called here for a meal before an evening at the cinema, it was great, food, service and surrounding all just what was required for a great birthday treat without breaking the bank. We did book a table and that was good advice from friends that had been before.

Visited here on Saturday night with family for a pre-Christmas meal. Headed to the bar first where we were greeted by very friendly and welcoming staff before heading through to the dining room area. As it is just before Christmas there was a great atmosphere and the decorations give it a great festive feel. There was a bit of a... More

Had a great meal after late night Xmas shopping and could not fault it! Great service from all staff, especially Katie who was very friendly. It was extremely busy as to be expected at this time of year and we had to wait a little longer than normal for the mains but it mattered little as the atmosphere was great... More

I went there as part of a work xmas meal over the weekend. It was an event and venue that we were all very much looking forward to and had been anticipating for several weeks. The only saving grace from this truly dreadful and disappointing experience was the fact that we were still able to have a good time despite... More

Met up with a friend for lunch this week. They seem to be far better when it's not too busy. All tables were full but manageable. I have to say, bar staff were very friendly and chatty. Restaurant staff polite. Food was nice. I'd go again for a meet up with friends. Just good pub food.

Had the pleasure of enjoying an evening meal here whilst away with work. Myself and 2 other colleagues all ordered from the festive specials menu and the food was really really good. Presentation and the quality of the food was very good and the atmosphere in the place was lovely. We all 'sampled' a pint of the borough's own beer... More

The Borough is a really nice pub in the centre of Lancaster. the food is good. They cater for large groups as well as small intimate tables. Specials during the week if you are going to the theatre afterwards. And just to top it off, they have now started brewing their own real ale! Bonus!

The Borough is one of the best pub/restaurants in Lancaster. They brew their own beer on site which is excellent and the food is of a good quality and reasonably priced. The beer garden is great in the summer and is covered I the winter so smokers don't freeze to death or drown. The staff are exceptionally friendly and the... More
