Good food at reasonable prices. Warm, pub style atmosphere. The fish and chips are served the real English style: wrapped in newspaper and really good!

Thank Frap

This pub has a fantastic atmosphere and I enjoyed dinner here alot. It had a quite authentic "old english pub" feel and just would have needed an open fire to complete this look! The service was excellent with really friendly staff who we had a joke or two with. The good was very good and the selection of beers was... More

Of the few restaurants that my wife and dined at during our trip to Lancaster city Quips was the best. We were a litte skeptical to try the place based on the look of the building from the outside but we were glad that we did. As it turn out it is a very old historic building with a lot... More

Went here for drinks on a Friday night. Place was packed. They have several large TV's and a good amount of seating for the size of the place. Also have two dart boards which is nice. Drinks were reasonably priced as well. Would return.

Food and beer, both amazing. Went on a Friday night and long wait for a table, 2 seats opened at the bar and we sat down right away. Pumpkin beer was great, food is always good, although it did take awhile to get to us. Will definitely go back again, nice little pub and prices were average.

So a good friend goes here often and brought me. Since I'm not a big beer drinker, I was delighted to have a buttery Cabernet. Later, looking at the menu, there were lots of choices and several seasonal ones. The clams were tender and flavorful and oh so yummy! Amazing! Also had the small seasonal salad which was another great... More

We were here on a Friday night around 8. The place was packed but we were able to get seated quickly. The waitress came right over, suggested drinks and took our order. The food and drinks were delicious. The place is noisy and small but we like it. I would return and next time grab a seat at the bar!

The food is decent. The menu could use a change up as choices are uninspired. Service was slow and seemed a bit disorganized. We were waited on by three different people and yet seemed awhile to get the soup starter to the table. Some good dessert choices. Cleanliness is not the nightmare scenario some reviews have posted. The place could... More

Love this place. Dine here often with friends and family and can highly recommend the bangers and mash. I always flip back and forth between it and the fish sarnie with a fried egg atop or the fish and chips. You can’t go wrong with any of them when looking for a good ol’ fashioned British pub fare. And in... More

Decided after a long day to have dinner here and it was just ok. I guess since the seating for food is around the huge bar I should have known that it was going to very loud. The bar was packed at 5pm and had a very rough time listening to any conversation with the person I was with. The... More

Thank you for joining us for dinner and for taking the time to give us some valuable feedback about your experience. We are a small local pub that has an incredible following for Monday night wings, and unfortunately at times it can be a little louder than normal.
