This is the first time I have ever eaten in a restraunt when the coleslaw came out warmer than the chips and the burger looked like it was a microwave burger. I did use to enjoy going to this pub on a night time for drinks, but I wont be no more after the landlord and manager started arguing with me when I made a complaint about the food. Really shocked about how bad this visit was

Having eaten and drank previously at The Lowther we saw the groupon afternoon tea and had to give it a whirl.... And we are so glad we did! didn't have to book a table so on a sunny afternoon in York we went for afternoon tea! Got seated straight away with our food arriving promptly! Wow we couldn't believe how much there was! we were unable to finish it all but it was all lovely and fresh, the scones were delicious! Staff were very friendly and courteous. great bargain with the groupon and would definitely return when in York!

Voucher for Afternoon Tea at The Lowther so off we went to use it.
With it being a Thursday afternoon the place was quiet,we should however have chosen a different table away from the music coming from the music screens.
The staff were very pleasant and helpful and the service was quick and efficient.
we were there for about two hours and had a very enjoyable tea comprising of finger cut sandwiches - 3 varietys on brown and white bread,two different slices of cake and scones with pots of jam and clotted cream all washed down with either tea or coffee.
A very enjoyable afternoon and an enjoyable Tea, would definitely go back again

The Lowther is a pub is a pub!
A bit dark inside but you can sit by the river afternoon tea arrived very average good value for the money but you pay for you get.
Young guy that was serving couldn't do any things else to make sure we were happier.
Sandwiches scones with cream and jam with cakes
but presentation not very great sandwiches cut a bit messy cakes slices of somewhat messy and missed up but the home baked scones were great extra jam and cream requested and provide without any fuss.

This pub was great we sat outside and had tea and cake one morning and drinks in the early evening and watched the football before they played music in the evening (not all on one visit) it seemed to have something for everyone.
