We travelled up to Lancaster on Easter Monday and had lunch at The Borough. Food and service very good. They don't serve Guinness but did have London Stout which is a great alternative. 3 of us had Fish & Chips and 1 of us had a Risotto. All cooked well tasty and enjoyable. 4 Meals plus 2 alcoholic and 3... More

Took a visiting client to dinner at the borough. First thing I noticed was that the place was packed on a Tuesday night, glad we booked. I enjoyed an excellent scallop starter following by pork belly (quite possibly largest portion of belly I have ever had). The rest of the party all thoroughly enjoyed their meals. Great selection of ales... More

Ate here with a friend mid-week. We both opted for fillet steak and both steaks were cooked to perfection - just the way we had asked. Our starters were really tasty and just enough. We had the sharing platter for dessert and we were able to choose what we wanted. We chose STP, gin sorbet and the lemon tart. We... More

Popped in for lunch with husband. As always the quality was excellent. The consistency of both The Borough and The Lodge are always outstanding. Big shout out to the excellent customer service from Janet, she was great!

My friend and I were told that this pub had consistently good food so we thought we would give it a try. We walked in and looked at the menu and thought it was a bit expensive so we looked around town to find something else. No luck at all, so we went back to The Borough. This time we... More

Went on a Monday evening, myself and my friend went into the restaurant area of The Borough where there is table service. We received good, pleasant and friendly service and when the food arrived it was hot and presented well. We both choose from the School Dinner menu. I ordered the club sandwich with a side order of chips. My... More

Stayed here accidentally due to train problems on the West Coast line that evening. Had upgraded stunning room with sitting room as well as a bed and ensuite. Was very quiet in the room which is in a separate house to the pub/restaurant. Excellent fish and chips for dinner and a really substantial breakfast too. Would definitely stay here again

The food was excellent and the staff were truly superb combining attention to detail with managing to serve a large number of meals without making people wait. A number of our guests stayed in the hotel and they all had nice things to say about the rooms and the quality... More

We visited at lunchtime on a Sunday, and had no trouble finding a seat in the very smart and spacious bar area (including ample room for a pushchair). The service was swift and friendly, with one or two questions about the menu answered clearly and enthusiastically. The food was excellent, and it was a bonus that many of the ingredients... More
