Woahhhh!! Must return here someday very soon for sure - for my visit here was purely for a post meal liqueur having eaten elsewhere an hour earlier. Wonderful tireless period decor. Plush sofas well positioned screens. Spidey hole seats in nooks and crannies. Perfect. This double fronted elegant Georgian stone townhouse at the top end of town was well appointed... More

A modern historic place in a nice part of the city. Students there, but very well behaved. I was there on a Wednesday and it was quite busy, so it might be full to bursting on a Friday and Saturday. A very enjoyable visit and one I would recomend

Popped in for lunch on Monday afternoon, food was tasty, I had the burger from the school dinners menu with a couple of toppings, good value at £9. My friend had lamb hot pot which was nice but a little expensive at £13. What really annoyed me though was the ketchup on the tables. it was in a "Heinz" bottle... More

I had not been for over a year to the Borough as my last experience was that the service was very slow. However this has improved as well as great attention to detail. Food from the lunch special were a good size and very tasty. I really do love the décor and ambience in the Borough with the lovely touches... More

We ate here a couple of days ago. I had the burger and husband had fish and chips. I had food envy when I saw his!! Everyting was freshly made, you could tell and nicely presented. It was a normal Thursday and I couldn't believe how busy it got!! It was however quite expensive for drinks (£4.35 for a large... More

I booked this fairly last minute for two couples, myself and my husband, my son and his girlfirend. On the day we were all supposed to arrive me and my son's girlfriend were running very late, so contacted the hotel and explained that although the booking was in my name my husband and my son would be arriving about two...

We decided to enjoy a summer evening in the beer garden at the rear of the Borough. The menu is varied and there are specials which change seasonally. There is great emphasis on local meat, sausages and cheeses and these are reflected in the choices. The presentation of the food is good, hot when it arrived and good portions, and... More

The Borough recently did the catering for our wedding at Lancaster town hall and I can not praise them enough. From the first meeting with Hannah till waving goodbye the morning after we were looked after amazingly. Hannah and all the staff were brilliant, nothing was too much trouble. They made the day run so smoothly we didn't have to... More

We've been visiting the relaxed, squishy-sofa'd bar and enjoying excellent food in the restaurant since arriving in Lancaster some years ago. If you want a cheapie, there are budget daytime deals but my husband usually goes straight for the fabulous (local) full on fish and chips. Crowded at half term and on Sundays, which we avoid as children bring me... More
