Amazing meal. Service was excellent, food even more so. Worth having again were the turkey Wellington (huge chunk of white meat, with stuffing and small pastry covering). The trifle was equally excellent. All component parts of it could be tasted and it was light and very fresh. The French white wine was so good I want to buy it for... More

We ventured into the Meeting House for a couple of drinks to pass time waiting on train. We tried to order certain drinks but they didn't do them. So long as you stick to whats on tap or a spirit and a mixer you will be fine, just don't ask for anything slightly different. The place was fairly busy and... More

Visited The Meeting House twice now and both times it hasn't disappointed. Both times it has been fairly busy but as soon as we walked in, we were attended to and shown to out table quickly. Staff were very friendly and very knowledgeable when asked on about particular dishes. Very good selection of drinks including spirits, lager and soft drinks.... More

The Meeting House is the No 1 Restaurant in Lancaster. This restaurant is fine dining, but not at the extortionate prices they ask and the small sizes they send out. The belly pork with apple puree and black pudding is out of this world, the only downfall is that it's a starter and not a main course. The lamb shank... More

Visited here with my partner and her parents, we were seated quickly but we had to wait around 10 minutes for our drinks to arrive, longer for starters and again a large wait for mains. It wasn't particularly busy and no excuses were made. The service was unfriendly and inattentive. Fortunately the food was good, but quite expensive

We arrived for an impromptu meal out,fairly standard menu and slightly more expensive than a pub...Ambience,atmosphere and decor set it apart, but needs to discover the xfactor if it wants to compete, as the meal quality was little better than average.Service and surroundings were spot on however food and prices may well prevent me from returning zone time soon.

An ideal venue for an intimate wedding. Service and attention to detail were outstanding. All the staff were extremely helpful - nothing was too much trouble. The food was excellent and ideal choices for for coeliacs, vegetarians and children. The atmosphere was perfect - a great time was had by all!

The whole experience from start to finish was awful! The food is lazy - I order mussels in white wine sauce, I can only assume that these mussels were the £1 pack you get in Asda as they didn't have shells and I got tonnes of them, mussel soup basically. The lamb shank (£18.95!) was drowned in greasy gravy and... More
