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.
We had the sharing platter, quality of the ingredients was superb and most was cooked to perfection. Cauliflower cheese was superb, all veg were perfectly cooked, roasties was scrummy. The beef wasn’t rested though and it was very rare which in turn made it ‘bleed’ all over the board and table, we sent back to be cooked further too and had to mop up everywhere. Also please supply steak knives by defaults. This wouldn’t stop us coming back or recommending though.
Always a joy to return to the Borough - cannot recommend it enough!
Nice food but we waited an hour for our order.
Friendly staff & great food
Always a pleasure to dine here
Great food and service
Incredible steak and ale pie.
Great food and service
Staff very welcoming when we checked into our room. Lovely big room and separate bathroom facilities. Ideal for closeness to city centre. Breakfast was really nice and plenty of it if you wanted. Would definitely stay here again.
Really enjoyed our sizzler meals excellent service served hot and everything was lovely 😊 . Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend and indeed call again soon ourselves 👍🏿
We dine here at least once a month prior to the cinema at Dukes and, although the food is always great, we both agree that it’s about time you changed, even just a couple of things, the School Menu.....apart from that - no complaints!
Wonderful as ever
We had a fabulous evening here! We checked in, got settled and came back down for an evening meal. The service was excellent! Lucy served us and she was the loveliest person and really looked after us! The food was fantastic too! Our room was so comfortable and modern, had everything we needed. Would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it! Thank you x
Lovely food & atmosphere
We went to The Borough for Sunday Lunch & were not disappointed. The food was amazing. We all had the sirloin sharing plater. It was a tight squeeze with 3 platers on the table. The service was also very good the young Girl who served us had only been there 2 weeks but she was very polite & curtious. An altogether great experience we will be going again that`s for sure.
Really great food at a decent price!
Lovely food as always and the staff are always friendly and give good service !
Excellent meal, good gluten free choices too Thanks
We thoroughly enjoyed our family meal, the food was delicious 😋 Plenty of variety for everyone and the portion sizes are generous
Excellent all round as usual.
Had a Sunday roast which was very nice and good value especially getting a free bottle of wine with 2 mains. Service very good and staff pleasant. Would definitely go again.
Great service and lovely friendly staff
food lukewarm, came out quickly, fish tasted like it hadn’t been cooked properly, felt rushed and never asked how the food was, i should’ve gone somewhere else after being told the foods not good anymore, table was cramped and by the backdoor and kitchen door, not relaxing at all. will avoid this place in future
Food and drink absolutely spot on. Only problem was the wait for our tables. Considering we pre booked for 1.30pm, we didn’t get seated till 2.10pm. We were told to wait in the bar but no one came to find us. We had to go ask 2 or 3 times till someone cleared a table for us. Like I said, food incredible! We’ll definitely be back, just wish the table had been ready.
A lovely evening. Great food, a good table and good service too. Would definitely go again.
