There isn’t much that can beat the classic British pub when it comes to hearty meals and a cosy atmosphere. That said, The Three Mariners isn’t just any pub, it’s the oldest and most historical pub in Lancaster. You can find it housed in a Grade II listed building on Bridge Lane in the very heart of the city, a spot that has seen plenty of historical action over the centuries, including being where prisoners of Lancaster Castle dungeons were led to enjoy one last drink (rumour has it a few ghosts from this time have even stuck around). In terms of food and drink there is classic British cuisine on the menu and a lengthy list of craft beers. Start with potted crab or black pudding stack, then move onto a traditional fish and chips, Lancashire hotpot or a damn good gammon steak. The Three Mariners is a fantastic pub, and you’re going to love it as much as we do.

I've never had a bad meal at The Three Mariners, and this time was no exception. As ever, the food was good and reasonably priced, and the staff friendly and efficient. There were eleven people in our party and all of them expressed both their enjoyment of the food and satisfaction of the service. The pub itself is said to be the 2nd or 3rd oldest in England, and apart from a solitary games machine, is thankfully free of noisy modern annoyances like pool tables or enormous TV screens. At the bar, a selection of the more popular lagers are on offer (bottled as well as draft), plus a good range of bitter and cider. They also feature a 'guest-ales' board on a regular basis, from which you may choose some of the more exotic real-ales from around the country. If you like your pubs to have a traditional look, a friendly, welcoming atmosphere, and a good mix of age-groups, then The Three Mariners won't disappoint. It even has a ghost (or three), though I can't claim to have had the ... er ... 'pleasure' of meeting any of those in person.
The Three Mariners, a lovely evening with friends, the pub has a friendly atmosphere, an excellent selection of local beers, and a wide menu choice. The specials were very good indeed and gave you a very different option over the good normal pub grub fare. Excellent value. Book ahead though as its popular .
Cosy pub full of character. Good selection of real ales, friendly staff and varied menu. Food was served hot and portion size was more than sufficient. Onlky downside was one loud American who was sitting alone at the bar conducting a face time conversation with another American which all the locals had to put up with. Why can't people use their headphones or save these conversations for the privacy of their own home rather than have no self awareness of how annoying they are.
Booking highly recommended if you want to sit in the restaurant as it's on the smaller side & was very busy - despite how busy they were, we were never rushed or made to feel we needed to leave so they could turn the table round. Food fantastic & fresh, friendly relaxed service, will go again
The Three Mariners was fantastic. Great food, lovely atmosphere, excellent service and really reasonable prices. I would fully recommend going to this restaurant/pub in the future.
Lovely little pub, a good selection of different foods on the menu, reasonably priced, good selection of beers. The food was very good & good sized portions. The staff were friendly & helpful. Food service wasn't the fastest but we weren't in a rush. If you are looking for good pub food, I'd have no hesitation in recommending it.
