Like the unhappy reviewer below, it has been many years since I've been to this pub. However my experience is completely different. The food was perfect. The tomato bisque to die for. The atmosphere is pub/basement bar...exactly what it should be. The servers are friendly and personable. A MUST for anyone seeking great food in a friendly place.

We were taken here as guests for our 20th anniversary dinner and it was a memorable event! Remember this is a pub, offering an authentic British traditional menu with fish and chjps being their signature dish, served wrapped in a British newspaper as it most often is in England. The venue is also typical - vintage, friendly, noisy, dark, and... More

We ate at quips 15+ years ago and thought it was bad food. We returned based on some curious reviews. Turns out some things never change! Same frat house decor, aroma, and level of cleanliness. The food (in respect to all English pubs) was pasty bland or fiery spicy, no happy tasty medium. The beet salad had no dressing (although... More

The food was above average , great menu the special fries melted in your mouth, fish and chips were hands down the best I've very had. The desserts are outstanding. We have found our new favorite pub in Lancaster,Pa.

Great beer selection. Yummy apps and comfortable atmosphere. Make a reservation if you want a table, this place gets busy.

Not only is Quip's a great neighborhood bar with some of the most reasonable draft prices in Lancaster city, but it also offers some fantastic food that you just can't get anywhere else locally, such as Scottish eggs, Bubble & Squeak and, my favorite, Colcannon. The fish-and-chips, on special each Tuesday, are INCREDIBLE. The portion sizes of most everything are... More

Delicious pub! My husband ordered the crab cake sarnie and I ordered the fish sarnie- both were excellent and unique, We ordered wings as an appetizer and they were delicious, plump and crispy (but not overcooked). The restaurant had several beers and tap, and they were all fairly priced. Overall, everything on the menu looked tasty, and we will be... More

We had been looking forward to dining here since we had looked at the menu online. We were not disappointed! Having been to many British pubs in England, we felt this certainly compared well. The beers were excellent and the menu choices great! The service was very good as well. We will return!!! Thankfully, the prices were not really in... More
