Whether you're in town for a conference at the University, visiting the castle or you're on the way to the Lake District inthe north, it's always worth making some time to check Quandoo's select of fine Lancaster restaurants. With some stellar British eateries, classic curryhouses and plenty of culinary niches represented, it's a great dining destination, so tuck in today and find out what's on offer!
Lancashire has always been a crucial gastronomic region in British cuisine. After all, that's where we get traditional dishes like Lancashire hot-pot - a warming stew packed with meat and veg. So it won't surprise gourmet fans that Lancashire's British restaurants are some of the finest in the North West. There are pubs on St George's Quay that serve up wild boar burgers and classic puff pastry pies; there are centuries-old pubs in the centre of town which have honed their hotpots to perfection, and there are brasseries where the gin menu is almost as impressive as the size of their steaks. So, if you love British cuisine, Lancaster's restaurants are unmissable.
But don't stick to patriotic dishes when browsing the local Quandoo listings. Lancaster's restaurants have much more to offer besides first-class British fare. For instance, the city's Indian options compete ably with those in neighbouring Manchester. Head into town for beautifully presented thalis featuring an ensemble of fine curries, order up a bang-up balti with all the naans and poppadoms you require or cover your table with starters like spiced lamb chops, samosas and bhajis, so everyone can tuck in. One thing’s for sure, Lancaster is a wonderful destination for curry lovers.
If you really want to try something new, Lancaster's restaurants have some incredible dining opportunities that you won't find anywhere else. For example, where else can you step back in time 800 years to experience an authentic medieval feast? Sit underneath stained glass windows as costumed staff meet your every desire and try specialities like venison, pheasant, duck breast or partridge - all of them cooked just the way chefs would have done in the Middle Ages. It's an eye-opening gastronomic experience, and as delicious as it is fascinating, so don't miss out when you're in town. Lancaster's restaurants have an offbeat side too, something that even Liverpool or Manchester can't match.
If you don't fancy a city centre meal at Lancaster's restaurants, there are more picturesque options to think about too. Just a few miles to the north, gastropubs in Hest Bank serve up fish and chips, scampi and Cumbrian beef burgers in beautiful surroundings. Or you could munch on some masala by the coast at Heysham after checking out the chapel and the beach. Morecambe has some superb curry houses and pubs as well, with the added attraction of the city's lively nightlife. So whether you want a tranquil meal by the sea or you're looking for somewhere to get ready for a long night of dancing, finding restaurants in the Lancaster area won't be hard. Just search the Quandoo listings and book the perfect place in seconds!
