“great bar and excellent burgers”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

My girlfriend and I have been in here twice recently, once for cocktails and more recently for food. We have thoroughly enjoyed both visits. The venue is excellent and the owners have put a lot of thought into the layout which gives an impressive overall look but provides a wide selection of chairs and seating options with plenty of booths and couches allowing you to relax and sit with your friends. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Lancaster. Much more refined that your chain cocktail bars and they have a good range of beers and knowledgable bar staff. The burgers we had last night were the best I have seen for a while. Healthy portions but nicely presented and good, flavoursome accompaniments. Top marks to the chef!!

“The cocktail scandal shouldn't put you off!!”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

Delicious food and huge portion sizes. Struggled to finish!!! Although our orders got slightly mixed up the staff were very friendly and accommodating in making sure we all had the right meal in the end.

“Not for me :(”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

Read all the reviews about the great burgers and decided to try one, but sorry folks the ciabatta was toasted and too hard and thick to cut, never mind eat! Would have been easier to digest with a nice soft bun. The burgers were WELL DONE on the outside to the point of too bitter to eat and the wooden platter is a no no for me however modern it may be to eat from a plank of wood!! The room was freezing with a constant draft from the door and someone to decided to put the air con on brrrrrr and why exactly?? As was hardly packed with people only one table full other than the party I was with. Cant fault the service, waitresses were good and attentive, although meal took a while to arrive despite being empty in the place, don't think that was the waitresses fault though. On the plus side it was serving food, as had been elsewhere and no food served till 5.30! The vegetarian menu is reasonably priced too. All in all I was cold in there and the food didn't compensate.

“Best burgers this side of the Atlantic”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

Oscars has the best burgers that I have tasted this side of the Atlantic. Add to that great service and the fantastic local beers and I will be willing to wrestle and aligator to get a table next I am in town, if that is the only way to get a table. But its probably easier to call and resrerve instead
