The Hall


Ratings and reviews

Certificate of Excellence2016 - 2018 Winner

Location and contact

Primarily we are Coffee Roasters & Tea Merchants in the Shop next door established 1837 - We annexed The Hall in 2012 and converted it to our green bean warehouse, packaging & despatch, offices, training room and bakery, oh, and we put a bar in there to serve coffees the way we wanted to serve them, on a vintage 1959 Faema lever espresso machine and a Brew Bar featuring syphons. We use our two cafes to practise what we preach to the many other cafes we supply in the independent sector. They come here for training an inspiration. Our amazing friend Debbie creates her incredible cakes in the beautifully kitted-out Bakery now joined by the multi-talented Saffa who has launched us into offering

Benches and a distinct aroma of coffee. Coffee comes from Atkinson coffee a couple of doors a way which is worth a visit too. There are coffee machines all over the place. Apart from a choice of coffee- we had a Chemex of Nicaraguan- there...More

Cute little place for doing work. Quiet atmosphere so best to come solo otherwise you feel like you’re disturbing others.. Coffees are nice but not much of a variety with the cakes or food. Nice deco tho!

If you love coffee, then this is the place for you - especially if you’ve been first of all to Atkinson’s coffee and tea shop a few doors down first to stock up on everything you need for home! A great place to meet and...More

The Hall is one of Atkinson’s coffee shops in Lancaster. The dining area is very nice and filled with coffee grinding equipment. Staff are friendly. The coffees we had could have been warmer. The cake I had, courgette and lemon, was delicious

I like the hall which belongs to Atkinsons. Like there branch I went to in Manchester recently the coffee was very tasty but not particularly hot. Like the industrial feel to the place. Do a good line in cakes.

I think this is, quite possibly, the best coffee place I have been to but - and there is a but - it is a victim of its own success and, when I went, it was incredibly busy. Nevertheless, having been a recent convert to...More
