About The Borough
In March 2006 The Borough opened its doors to the people of Lancaster with the promise to serve honest, quality, locally sourced produce at reasonable prices in beautiful surroundings. There has been a watering hole here since the merchants of Lancaster conducted their business on this very spot when Lancaster was a thriving port. This grand Grade 2 listed Georgian building with Victorian frontage has had many uses from the Mayor of Lancaster’s house, to a working men’s club, known as “The Borough Club” which closed in 1993.
At the core of our business is our promise to you to serve local produce and, wherever possible, purchase from local suppliers directly. We firmly believe in supporting our nearest and dearest, all our chicken and eggs are free range; our beef is 45 day aged from local farms in the surrounding hills and valleys. We try, wherever possible, to use local and independent suppliers, keeping our carbon footprint low and our local economy buzzing. We serve food all day from 9am everyday selling breakfast, Lancashire specialities and pub classics. Our Sunday lunches are legendary too!
For our dedication to local produce we have been given a Taste Lancashire Award for 2 years running. For our fine ales, we have been in the ‘Good Beer Guide’ every year since we opened and have won a Camra award. We are also the only place in Lancaster to be recommended in the ‘Michelin Guide to Eating Out in Pubs’ for 2009 & 2010. We have won an environmental award for our efforts to save the world we live in.
We are also delighted to be able to host many functions in the Drawing Room upstairs. From weddings & civil partnerships to christenings, birthdays even divorce parties for 2 to 80 people. We specialise in tailor-making your event to suits your needs, tastes and budget.
A really enjoyable meal, as always.
Had a fantastic time dining at The Borough, the food was outstanding, Service was faultless, the staff were friendly and professional. Nothing was too much trouble, would highly recommend!
Excellent food and great service
Before ordering my lunch i was asked if i wanted coffee or tea whilst i waited, the waitress made it sound like i wasn't paying, like when you get given free bread. I ordered coffee, because i wasn't asked what type of coffee i assumed it would just be black with milk served separately. Unfortunately i was given a latte, which is odd having not ordered one, and i don't usually drink dairy. I wasn't given long enough to finish my coffee before my meal arrived, so barely drunk the coffee, so it was a waste of money. Whilst the fish n chips were lovely, it wasn't worth £13.
Excellent place was greeted in a very friendly way and the staff where tip top. The food was excellent but the price in my opinion was a little steep by a couple of pound to the amount of food that was on your plate. But we will come back as it was an excellent experience and so relaxing.
Brilliant as always
The staff were welcoming and applied all the current guidelines although, I felt that they could have been a bit more attentive. I was left on a couple of occasions trying to raise the attention of the absent staff to order and it wasn’t particularly busy. The food was outstanding though And the ale was excellent.
Lovely meal and lovely staff.
The best vegan burger I’ve had for a long time. Great service.
Sunday evening, disappointed to fine a lot of the menu sold out. Would like to music turned down a bit - difficult to hold a conversation.
Lovely atmosphere, very clean and safe with lots of social distancing measures in place. Thank you
Lovely food and friendly service.
Wonderful hospitality again at the Borough!
Asked if we would like gravy/bacon/veg with meals with no mention of 'sides' or they were extras. We assumed they were part of the meal. ie veg with pie and chips, pie with gravy etc as that was the impression we got from the the staff. Rather shocked to find extra charge of about £14 on the bill! Shame as the staff would have got extra tip if we hadn't been 'sold' something we didn''t need . Good safe environment. thanks.
Thank you for having us last Friday The food was excellent Service was spot on ☆☆☆☆☆ Atmosphere was good even with the restrictions We will be back soon 😁
Good choice, food simple but tasty
Great implementation of saftey measures :) Sad it can't be full but well done for adapting to the times. Thanks for paying attention to the comments too when we booked ;)
All of the staff are going above and beyond for customers. The waitress who served us (we didn’t get her name, but she was wearing an orange dress) was lovely. She was supportive and reassuring to customers at this difficult time. Not just polite and accommodating but positive and empathetic. Staff should never underestimate the job they do; it is beyond hospitality. For many customers, it is their last link with a life they used to know as well as being a positive outlet.
I ordered a lemonade which never arrived so I told the waitress who obviously didn’t believe me. She told me it had been put through on the till and asked me again if I had received it. I felt like I was being accused of stealing. She said she would void it off the till. However, when I got home and checked the receipt I realised she hadn’t so I was charged twice for 1 lemonade. Very disappointed at this poor service.
Great all round experience
A great night only 4 stars on atmosphere due to no fault of your own just because it was a Monday and quiet but the service off the young girl was fantastic, I would definitely recommend and return.
Lovely staff and food also very good! Only been to Lancaster twice and have come to you both times!!
Superb quality and value for money. We will visit again!
Very friendly service and very COVID safe environment.
