We had Sunday lunch and unfortunately the meals were cold. It was as if the mash potato and veg had been plated up prior to the order. This was very disappointing. The bedrooms are excellent, but we got a lot of noise in the night going into the early house from the night club across from the square. Coffee and... More

I visit this venue on average, once a week. Menu is always varied. Food is outstanding and the staff couldn't be more accomodating :-) Brilliant relaxed, cosy atmosphere. I'm addicted to this place, for its choice, quality and high standards

We enjoyed the steak night with a lovely cut of beef cooked to our liking. A great selection of beers all available from the bar and the staff were all very attentive. Well worth a visit but you might want to book.

Visited the Borough during a trip to Lancaster after it was recommended by a friend who's local. The atmosphere was really nice, with large chesterfields scattered around the front rooms, making the place really inviting. The bar staff were very friendly and helpful. I ordered a steak as it was steak night, and the meat came just as I asked... More

The staff, food and atmosphere are absolutely brilliant! Could not fault them in any way. During out meal the electricity went out and the staff promptly provided us with candles and apologies followed by a free glass of fizz to apologise. The waiting staff were friendly and offered us a table in the bar once we had finished and paid... More

Our son was recently married in the Town Hall in Lancaster. As he lives in Lancaster he (and most of our family) have previously had great meals in The Borough and he wanted the wedding reception to be held there. Unfortunately, they had another wedding booked in on the same day. However, they offered to cater at the Town Hall,... More

Have visited The Borough a few times during my 6 month stay in Lancaster and each and every time I've left feeling better than when I went in. I've visited for drinks, dinner and even breakfast and the food, the helpful staff and the atmosphere has all been top notch. I'm a fan of good food and they offer a... More
