We had commitments in different parts of Lancaster at various times during the day, which left us short of time for lunch together. The Whale Tail obliged yet again with scrumptious vegetarian food that was served swiftly in a relaxing ambiance. This is probably our favourite restaurant in Lancaster.

Have been going on a regular basis since it opened and have never had a bad meal. There is the set menu and a specials board - they even have their own cook book. If you do not have time to dine in you can pick up something to take out. The Whale Tail salads are a good choice.
The place is always busy but you never feel like you have to rush, the saff are always polite and if you ask how something is made they will tell you.
Overall I would recommend this because once you have been you will always go back.
