Are you looking for somewhere special to eat in Lancaster? Then you simply have to try the Wagon & Horses, for the last couple of years we have secretly been employing one of the best chefs in the area and creating a menu that will rival (and sometimes surpass) any other establishment in Lancaster. We know it's a cliché but we are the best kept culinary secret in the city. We take great pride in our customer service and make sure the standard of food we serve is always of the highest quality making us increasingly one of the most popular gastropubs to eat at. Wherever possible, we are committed to only buying from local suppliers whether it is Garstang Blue Cheese or Lewis's truly amazing Ice

Fantastic pub which punches above it's weight food wise. Does fab steaks and 3-4 vegan options. Dog friendly, with a woodburner and outside space. Also is a 4 star B&B.

Strange to find the top two restaurants in Lancaster right next to each other. Given their such obvious differences in cuisine, it is a testament to both that they are so good. But we wanted a hearty pub meal not snails and frog legs! So...More
