I was here last night and for lunch today for the beer and pie festival and both times were wonderful. Last night i was with my finace and some friends and today it was just my finace. The pork pies provided by Cornish bakery were lovely, the Apple and stuffing one was the best. I had the curried goat pie last night and the meat and tomato pie today, both were really good, the curried goat was incredible.

The chips here are chunky and hand cut, crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. Superb! The Cajun Chicken Burger I had here was lovely and juicy. Great food and service.

I can’t praise this place enough! From the minute we walked in we got excellent service from Harley. It was lunchtime during the ‘Pie Festival’ event. We were a party of 10 and everyone chose a pie. I chose the salmon,mussel and asparagus fish pie for £12 and it was probably one of the best pies I have ever tasted! Full of fish with a delicious sauce and topped with crunchy mash dusted with smoked paprika. It was served with perfectly cooked(al dente) green beans and lightly cooked shredded cabbage. All the food arrived in good time and was lovely and hot.

I was driving so was unable to sample from a huge selection of beers.

Thank you very much for such a wonderful review. It's wonderful to hear that you and all your friends enjoyed your visit here and took full advantage of our Beer and Pie festival. Despite it being one of our busiest weekends its lovely that you were still looked after, and the service was ‘excellent’.
Thank you once again and we look forward to you visiting again soon.

Kind regards

Went for the £10.00 Monday offer, a main and a drink for 10.00 and it was fantastic value. We had burger and the Vegan dopiaza....even though he's not vegan and really enjoyed it. Kids meals were good and they enjoyed them although they are dearer than stated on the website. Still says £4.95 on the website, I think it was 6.50 including a drink and then 1.50 for the dessert. That said the desserts looked amazing and it was great value. Nice to get properly cooked, fresh food, even for the kids. Would recommend to anyone.

Came here with a party of 10 for a friends birthday. The bar area is big, carries a large range of ales/beers/ciders but the food we got not only was more expensive than the average in Lancaster but was disappointing.
