My go-to coffee shop with friends or on my own. The atmosphere is so relaxed yet can be bustling as well. All drinks and fantastic and so is the food 👍🏽☕️

love this little coffee inside the city, with a little square. could do with a bit a cleaning around as sometime the public bin is full. the coffee is a bit pricey as the pastries, its not like they make themselves.... but still the place in lancaster...

It happened to be Lancaster's music weekend and we sat outside the restaurant close to the stage and listened to live music whilst drinking our coffee and eating tasty cakes. It was a restful experience. I can recommend the place to anyone.

Found this gem of a café of the beaten track (just off the main shopping street) after doing a treasure hunt around Lancaster. Staff were friendly. Drinks were good and reasonably priced. Cakes looked amazing but we did indulge on this occasion. Will definitely return.

Been going since the day they opened as one of their first customers and haven't looked back. Along with their sister venue 'the hall' easily the best place for coffee in Lancaster. Great environment, with artwork & crafts from local artists, it's one of Lancaster's hidden gems. A must see for locals and visitors alike. Friendly, knowledgeable staff and great... More

I have wanted to visit the Music Room for some time, but won't be rushing back. It was ok - coffee was good but no atmosphere and staff miserable

We popped in here on a wet Saturday morning, had lovely soya latte and there was a choice of 2 gluten free cakes. Would certainly return

This historic building is in a small square tucked away behind the main road. The service is welcoming and informative. The coffee is excellent and (I think) roasted locally. There is plenty of seating outside, which is what I chose. I ordered my coffee and snack inside and one of the staff brought it out to me very quickly. I... More

I love sitting out in the square outside the music rooms. Just generally, a really nice place to sit and relax, with that massive window! Sadly I always get here too late to see the full selection of cakes, but that's my fault, not theirs. I like the tea variety offered here.

I only popped in quickly to drink a delicious cup of Blood Orange Tea. Lovely little place, I needed some peace and quiet for a read, and The Music Room was the perfect choice. Great environment to work as well. The only concern was the space, I saw so many potential clients turning back when they saw that there was... More
