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.
