An incredible product range! Unfortunately, a bar manager who seemed more interested in chatting with his mates than serving us. Nearly 15 mins to get served. Once we got served, tiki fire rum served in a 10oz highball. Wow. Am lost for words.

We came in at 9.45 to have breakfast after our early morning walk. Excellent choice of food available.Everything was hot and good quality, and nicely presented. The staff were very welcoming and efficient. We will be back.

Parking is on the Damside St, beside the 3 Mariners for a fee, but less than £9 per day. The rooms are great and all vary in size and layout.

Very good. The room was small and the bathroom smaller but clean and a very comfortable bed. Didn't hear any noie at all from the pub downstairs. We had a warm welcome but then immediately told that if we booked with Booking.com again then it wouldn't include breakfast - which was a rather unnecesary comment before we'd even been shown...

Just got back from a stay with friends after a day's clambering around the lakes. Great pub, diner and room. Would recommend to anyone staying in the area. Parking was nearby and secure but extra cost.

I have been in here many times over the years and it's always had a good atmosphere about it. It has an extensive list of drinks at sensible prices, along with good service too and enough bar staff to cope with the customers. This place is hard to beat in Lancaster.

Now stayed here twice and would stay again. Excellent friendly service, central location, good rooms and of course the beer. Not a place if your not a fan of stairs but other wise would definitely recommend
