Review of Toll House Inn
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 1 Jan 2024
The Toll House Inn has to be one of the best places I`ve stayed at for the money.

We stayed inbetween Christmas and New Year for a couple of days in one of the family rooms ( 16 ).

Apart from the actual building being beautiful inside, the staff are what make the Toll House Inn such a place to stay at, as nothing is too much trouble for them and that makes for a really enjoyable stay.

It`s hard to describe how beautiful and grand the dining / bar area is, as you`d have to see it for yourself, but the blend of old and new decor and furnishings is stunning. A lot of places would`ve ripped all the old stuff out and gone for ultra modern, but in an old buidling.

Our room was really comfortable and modern, with everything you could need - tea, coffee, hot chocolate etc and some little nice touches, like being given milk in a little cooler flask, so it remains cold and fresh over night, rather than having to use tepid sachets. The heating was by means of a self operated electric blow heater, which meant you could control the heating, rather than relying on the hotel central heating.
Despite being at the junction of the main road into Lancaster, there was virtually no road noise, which is testimony to the quality of secondary glazing.

Breakfast is varied and very good and we had one evening meal in the beautiful dining / bar area. The food / service was very good and I can see why it gets so packed of an evening.

Another big plus was the range of well kept Thwaites ales on offer and if you fancy a few beers or something to eat outside of the hotel, Lancaster centre is about 2 mins walk away too.

It`s a massive 10/10 from us and 100% we`d stay here again.

* There are only 5 parking spaces at the back of the hotel, which can be booked in advance for £5 a night, otherwise it`s the NCP car park just down the road.
Date of stay: December 2023
Room Tip: 100% book a table at the weekend, as it gets very busy.

Reviewed 30 December 2023

We returned to the Toll House for three lunches during our stay in Lancaster between Christmas and New Year. We have dined at this Inn intermittently for a few years now and always had a really good experience. This is especially important since my wife is coeliac and relies on a good knowledge and attention to gluten free requirements. They have never let us down. She says that it is great to feel like a normal human with a decent choice of meals and really good food. For my own part I have no cause to complain: tasty meals and generous portions (too generous for my appetite to be fair!)

The staff were welcoming, friendly and quick to help out with GF menus and guidance. The food and service were spot on in a venue that is attractive and atmospheric. It was enjoyable to see a cross-section of fellow guests settle in to enjoy drinks and food, be they snacks, cocktails, an afternoon tea or a full meal during the early afternoon in this spacious restaurant.

It's by no means the cheapest of places to dine in Lancaster, but the quality of food is really good. My wife enjoys her fresh dry white wines, which were good albeit rather pricey. A small selection of well-kept ales can be found at the bar too.

Definitely worth a try, particularly if you need gluten free fare. I feel certain we will be back in 2024. Thank you to the team.

Room tip: In our experience lunchtimes don't necessarily need a booking (though it's a good idea to check) but evenings will get busy so best to book.

Went for for a goodbye meal with colleagues as someone is leaving. My meal was absolutely delicious (char roasted butternut squash with tempura broccoli). Blue light discount is an added bonus.
Would definitely visit again 😊

Stayed 1 night at the Toll House Inn 16th December 2023 and thoroughly enjoyed it. In a great central location just a few minutes walk to the shops and Lancaster City centre. Staff were very welcoming and friendly. We had a few drinks in the bar before heading out for dinner. Lovely atmosphere and quite spacious. We didn't realise that breakfast was included in the price which was a nice surprise. We went for the grilled breakfast which was really nice. Will definitely return.

I went with 3 friends for lunch. The food was beautiful. We all had different lunches, and they were all very tasty and arranged to look appetising on the plate. The mini puddings with coffee/tea/hot chocolate were amazing. The custard was obviously freshly made with vanilla seeds. Well done to the chefs, and the wonderful waitress we had. Nothing was too much trouble.

Me and 18 colleagues had booked to come along to try the Christmas Menu as a works outing. We absolutely cannot fault the service we got from the staff behind the bar and also those looking after our group. The food was delicious and the portions were spot on. Everyone agreed it was a great night out. We all felt "stuffed" - as the group organiser I was very happy and relieved. A Big Thank You to everyone for looking after us and making the evening special.
