Penny Street Bridge - Pub in Lancashire

Last cache: 23:32:57, Friday 23 January 2015

Penny Street, Lancaster, LA1 1XT, Lancashire
England, United Kingdom

Slap bang in vibrant Lancaster, find well-poured beers, scrumptious meals hot from a pizza oven and grill and an eclectic, Art Deco style

This grand old city pub-hotel has had a chequered past but its facelift is bound to impress. High ceilings, stained-glass windows, huge Art Deco lights (yes, the originals) and ornate plasterwork abounds. And the elegant dining room with its vintage mismatch of furniture and gleaming parquet is a pleasing space from which to ponder a varied menu; scallops with crab, apple and chilli is a typically good-looking dish. In the bar, sandwiches are packed with the likes of Lancashire cheese and chutney; for something more substantial, go for a light crispy stone-baked pizza – we're told they're going down a treat. Well-kept Thwaites cask beers await, and there's a selection of wines by the glass. In short, a lovely friendly pub-hotel, and a fine place for a spot of retail therapy, slap in the throbbing heart of historic Lancaster.

Local points of interest from
Paul Spencer:

  • We source all our food locally; from the meat in our dishes to the cheese in our sandwiches. All can be found from producers not too far away.
  • As the centre of the community of the city of Lancaster, we host many events throughout the year.
  • We serve the full range of award winning Thwaites cask ales, so you are guaranteed the perfect pint from us!
  • Lancaster is a city full of stories to be told. The city is as old York and Chester and once you begin to explore it you see the history unfold before your eyes.
  • Lancaster Castle is the most fascinating place, with a history traced back to the Roman times. For centuries people from all over the country had to stand trial for their crimes within these walls.
  • Lancaster Canal is located just across from the inn, and it stretches 42 miles from Tewittfield to Kendal. Perfect for lazy walks and exploring the picturesque countryside.
