Equally as popular with visitors to the area, Wagon & Horses provides the perfect setting for a number of occasions, whether it's a family meal, some Sunday lunch or to watch some live entertainment with a few pints in the evening.

The meals were, well prepared, well presented and delicious without exception. Cheerful service and quality house wine added enjoyment. Pleasant ambiance inside and outside in the.garden.

Room a little bit small but perfectly fine for the 2 of us. It was spotlessly clean, all the bedding, curtains, towels etc. really good quality. Hot water whenever we wanted. Nice choice of teas and coffees plus hot chocolate and biscuits. Breakfast was excellent as was our evening meal. Only criticism was it was a bit noisy from traffic and people outside. We like to sleep with the window open. Couldn't hear noise from the pub itself. All the staff we had dealings with were really nice and friendly and very helpful. Yes parking is limited but we managed to park for both nights with no problem. Had a really stay despite the terrible weather

this is a very pleasant place to visit, staff very friendly and service good. The starters we had were very good, the boar scotch egg was lovely the only thing that let it down was the horseradish crisps which were unbelievable bitter, the pork belly with sesame ice cream was lovely and we all had a taste, although the colour was a bit offputting. Mains were disappointing, rabbit was dry, especially the leg, the risotto was so thick and sticky it was difficult to eat, the berries although looking lovely didn't add much to the meal, the sirloin steak although cooked very well was tough as old boots, fatty and very difficult to cut, on the whole meal was ok, wine was delicious, didn't bother with puds. Would visit again and try something else, maybe it was just one of those days.

This is a charming place to spend time. The staff are more than lovely and the food is amazing. Possibly a victim of its own success in that on Sunday at a 1730 table, no roasts left (and trust me better than mother makes and the mother makes a fair roast!), few other things also absent from the menu but still a fair selection and I enjoyed every mouthful. Definitely my favourite place to eat & drink in Lancaster (possibly anywhere)..Enjoy ..

The friend I was meeting was delayed for over an hour, due to circumstances beyond her control, and although the pub was busy, the staff were all very accommodating and I felt under no pressure whatsoever. I ordered the humus and pitta bread to nibble while I waited and it was the tastiest humus I've ever had. My friend and I both agreed the roast beef dinner was worth waiting for; everything on the well-laden plate was delicious! Thank you.

It’s really lovely inside and the dining tables are well positioned. My partner had a beef dish which was fantastic. I had the sweet beetroot vegetarian dish which was dry and the flat bread was hard. I felt there wasn’t enough choice of vegetarian dishes, being only two that I could see on the menu. We then ordered our pudding which after 40 minutes of waiting, were told there was a problem with one of them and was asked if I would like to order another. We then waited a further 15 minutes for two cookie puddings. My partners wasn’t baked properly at all and we just couldn’t believe they were £6.50 each. Very overpriced and £55 altogether for a very disappointing meal. We could have had a far better meal at Cottams Field for half the price. A pub trying to be a restaurant.

I dined with friends, we were seated at a quiet table in the window, one of my favourite places to eat in Lancaster. The service was excellent (staff were attentive but not intrusive). The food was delicious, two diners had the hake and one had salmon, presentation of the meal was lovely. To finished the meal we had cheese and crackers while we continued to chat.
