Visited on 21st April 2017. Lovely old stone building set in a quiet square. The decor of the venue is impressive with lots of nice trad touches. It’s got a lot of rooms and was popular with students. 8 cask beers on of which 4 were their own. Quality good. Prices great with a quid off with a CAMRA card! Service was fairly poor though and slow. Definitely one to try for the Borough beers.

Very enjoyable first visit. They had 4 of their own beers on, similar number of cask guests, some additional taps plus a selection of bottles. The place is large but had a homely and rustic feel, particularly liked the leather sofa’s in the window which wouldn’t be out of place in a cigar lounge. It was fairly quiet as it was a Sunday evening but those here were creating a nice atmosphere. Service was very attentive. Well worth a visit.

Right on the center square. Street parking on the square was tight, and on the street was reserved for locals. But drive past the pub and there’s a car park two blocks on. The pus is indeed an old hotel. Staffed by young students, a historian in my case. Four of their own beers on offer, available in panels of three thirds if you like, and all were OK. There’s a large restaurant in back, but I had already eaten. Worth a look.

Brewpub for the Borough Brewery. They’re at it today, and the enticing scent of crystal malt pervades the air. It’s decked out a bit like a swanky hotel bar, but the atmosphere is convivial. Not crazy busy but certainly steady on a Tuesday late afternoon. They had four Borough beers, plus some interesting guests. Eagle IPA and Bombardier for some reason as well. At time of writing, there was a whopping £1 per pint discount for CAMRA members on Borough beers.

Visited on Sunday 01/03/15 around 6 pm. City centre pub but slightly out of the way set in a stone Georgian era building off a square. Grand old building with a central staircase to the upper floors (toilet and function room). Guessing this place was more a hotel in days gone by and they still offer accommodation. Bar is to the right as you enter. 6 cask lines, 4 house brews from Borough supplemented by 2 guests. House beers, whilst not game changers, were all decent brews. CAMRA discount gains £1 off a pint! Pints are overly expensive for the area without this discount which applies to the house beers only. Great ambiance here, like stepping back into the days of old. Place was doing a good trade for a cold Sunday evening but we managed to bag a large table with sofas for our group. Service was fine but he screwed up the CAMRA discount and I had to go back to the bar. Overall well worth the visit, not the most exciting beers or range of but the sort of place I could happily while away a good few hours. Just a 3 or so minutes walk from the Tap House.

Situated in the architecturally fine Dalton Square in Lancaster it occupies an end of a grand terrace facing the gardens. The conversion is excellent and the front bar area is a collection of rooms made into an open plan drinking area full of fine soft furnishings that bring out the best of the classic building. A seat at the front means you can relax in a big chair and people watch through the large old windows. The bar is situated to the right within one of the opened up rooms and there’s plenty for all. For ale drinkers there is a substantial row but not all are always used, however for those that are there is usually a decent craft available to order. The central staircase adds to the ambiance of the place and leads to the function room that overlooks the square. Back downstairs the rear area of the ground floor is substantially bigger than the bar and is given over to those wishing to dine. There’s also a beer garden further back. Lots of care and attention and thought has been given to this place throughout.

Beautiful place to sit for a drink. Great lounge atmosphere with comfortable chairs and a old house feel. Now a decent restarant rather than just a pub. Lots of rare seasonal drinks with a few belgian bottles behind the bar. Usually in the Good Beer Guide and it should be. Cask Mark Pub. A great place for a decent pint.
