Clean, modern rooms but a little small. This wasn't an issue however as we only stayed the one night and didn't spend much time in ours.

Great pub with real ale and modern beers. Reasonably priced and good service. We were checking out before breakfast started so a tray of cereals and fruits was sent up to our room in the evening. Nice touch.

Would stay there again although we did head in to town and noticed other similar establishments that could also have suited our needs.

My daughter is a student at the university. In her first year I was soooo disappointed with eating out options in lancaster - everywhere we tried was awful. She moved into the town in her second year and found the Wagon and Horses and I'm really pleased she has. The decor just right (not too trendy/not too traditional) and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The food is great and good value (and not as up itself as at the Sun Inn where I usually stay - Jenga chips have no place in a pub as far as I'm concerned). It's just a very pleasant, comfortable, relaxing place to stop for lunch and I recommend it wholeheartedly. I don't however recommend the Maritime Museum on the same road - there's not much in there!

Its a pleasure to recommend this Hotel to other travelers. Spotlessly clean & comfortable. Excellent menu. You will not find better management & staff anywhere. Thanks to all the staff for their help during our recent stay. Will be back soon.

My fiance booked a room at the Wagon & Horses after reading a handful of excellent reviews on Trip Advisor.
We arrived at the Wagon & Horses at lunch time, we had read that there wasnt many parking spaces but luckily we found a space right outside of the pub, We walked in to be greeted by a very friendly lady behind the bar. I explained we had reserved a room, she looked in the book and with in seconds the owner had come to show us to our room. We asked him if our car would be ok there he explained that it would be ok for 3 hours then we would have to move it, but if parked there after 6pm it would be ok to leave there all night, he did say that he has a space and would let us park there. So we moved the car and parked round the back in the owners space.
The room was very clean and had tasteful decor, we made the booking for a double room but the only room they had was a twin, the owner was very apologetic, but we was fine with a twin.
After unpacking our overnight bags we wondered down to the pub and had some lunch. The service was very quick and the food was of a high standard. We was going to a football match in Moorecomb and the staff telephoned us a taxi, that arrived in no time.
On the night we got changed and had futher drinks in the bar, the bar was very busy and had a nice atmosphere to it, last ordes is at 12.30am so plenty of drinking time.
After a night of drinks we slept very well and the bed where very comforty.
For the £75.00 we paid breakfast was included, this is served till 10.30am. The breakfast is bought to your table and there is a huge choice from cerals, fresh friut or a full english.
The stay was very enjoyable and we highly recommend this place to stay for a night away.
10 out of 10 for everything :)

We stayed at Wagon & Horses on a Friday night on way to Manchester with our friends. On arrival there was no vacant car parking so one of the staff moved their car to let us park! We were taken to our rooms which were lovely and cozy. Next we went downstairs to have a meal. The service was very good and attentive and the food excellent. In the morning we were looked after by Mick, the owner, who was very friendly. Once again the quality of the breakfast was excellent. Needless to say we will return.

I have reviewed many hotels and B&B's on Trip Advisor and this is the most difficult yet........

The rooms at the Wagon and Horses are superb with modern facilities, all refurbished and spotlessly clean. Good in-room facilities although the room we had was a little cramped. Absolutely no complaints here.

The food was exceptional. We ate in the pub for an evening meal and the food was superb and the breakfast was probably the best of any I have ever tasted. Absolutely no complaints here.

The staff were friendly without being in your face and were very helpful. Absolutely no complaints here.

What could possibly go wrong? Well we booked for two nights and after an exhausting day out found that had our bags had been packed as the pub had overbooked. There wasn't exactly a great attempt at finding us alternative accommodation with just a 'we've had a look on the internet and couldn't find anything...'. We drove 10 minutes up the road to Morecambe and found loads of accommodation! There was also the question of why were we kicked out when we there already? Also what kind of booking system did they have to allow this to happen.

So a great place to stay but the booking system is totally inadequate and when things go badly wrong maybe (only maybe) they don't know how to cope.

Finally, this was a pub and £75 a night for a pub room with no parking facilities er.....I don't hink so and no offer was made to reduce our rate due their cock up!
