Loved this pub. From outside it doesn't look anything special but once inside it looks amazing. Food was great im a great fan of a fish finger sandwich and couldn't believe they had it on the menu. Only thing I will say is the white wine wasn't cold. And the view was amazing

Visited on Saturday night, walked in and was immediately impressed by the recent refurb. Went straight to the bar to get some drinks, 6 bar staff, and only a steady queue of people.. 30 minutes later, still no drinks and not even any acknowledgement from the bar staff. They seemed like they didn't quite grasp the concept of the 'queuing system'. I.e they were there first so I'll serve them next.. I got that sick of waiting I left and went elsewhere. The staff didn't really seem to be in a hurry about anything and even asking one another how to make drinks which is pretty poor in my eyes. I certainly won't be hurrying back.

Sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your experience with us on this occasion. We understand that Saturday was a little hectic, it was our reopening weekend and we have recently taken on a lot of new staff. We are hoping that things will be much more settled for the coming weekend, and hope that you will consider visiting us again in the future. Please accept my deepest apologies for the wait, and if you would like to discuss this matter further I would be more than happy to help. My email address is carolinesmith.thelowther@gmail.com. I look forward to hearing from you.

It has become religion to get off the bus and head straight to Lowther for drinks before heading to the clubs. Great atmosphere, good prices and nice layout provide the perfect pub for socializing and having a laugh.
