Called in on Saturday lunch and had no complaints about the food but the service could have been a little better with some smiles. I choose the lamb from the specials board and felt it was a couple of pounds overpriced but the wife's veggie meal was great value. A nice couple of their own real ales went down well.... More

Very friendly staff, quite an extensive menu, but we were on a theatre deal and the choice was quite limited and the portions small. Loved the feel of the place.

I had the fishcakes. Very good. Food is locally sourced. Very nice individual chips. Freshly squeezed juices available - also a bar. Very good service. Lots of old photos of Lancaster in days of yore. I liked the 'school dinner option' - excellent value - watch your waist on these puddings.

The Borough was once the place to go for good food, well cooked and reasonably priced. Sadly, this is no longer the case and I have stopped eating here. I do hope that standards have improved in the past year and I will give it another try.

Believe me, this place has stopped giving a toss. Several appalling meals. Not going back. This was once one of the best places in Lancaster now surviving on the reputation it built. A good competitor is neeed to give t. hem a kick up the proverbial

My husband and I have eaten lunch at The Borough twice in the last month. It's easy to reserve a table online which is definitely worth doing as it can get busy. We selected from the smaller portion lunch section of the menu and both enjoyed our meals; the food was well cooked and presented and the staff were pleasant... More
