The Borough by forrests


									The Borough
In March 2006 the borough opened its doors to the people of Lancaster with the promise to serve honest, quality, locally sourced produce at reasonable prices in beautiful surroundings. There has always been a watering hole here since the Merchants of Lancaster conducted their business on this very spot when Lancaster was a thriving port. This grand grade 2 listed Georgian building with Victorian frontage has had many uses from the Mayor of Lancaster’s house, to a working men’s
club, known as ‘The Borough Club’ which closed in 1993.

At the core of our business is our promise to you to serve local produce and wherever possible purchase from local suppliers directly. We firmly believe in supporting our nearest and dearest, all our chickens and eggs are free range; our beef is 45 day aged from local farms in the surrounding hills & valleys. We try wherever possible to use local and independent suppliers, keeping our carbon footprint low and our local economy buzzing. For our dedication to local produce we have been given a Taste Lancashire award for 2 years running. For our fine ales we have been in the Good beer guide every year since we opened and have won a Camra award. We are the only place in Lancaster to be recommended in the Michelin Guide to eating out in pubs for 2009 & 2010. We have won an environmental award for our efforts to save the world we live in. We like what we do … we hope you do too. Thanks for coming
