    We pride ourselves in producing the finest food in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, complemented by our extensive world wines & Cask Marque-accredited real ales. All served in the historic surroundings of our 300-year-old former wine merchant’s cellars. All our meals are freshly prepared on site using the best locally sourced ingredients, the meat coming from the fells and fields of Cumbria and Lancashire, and the fish delivered fresh from Fleetwood. The fresh ground coffee is our own unique blend, flame roasted at Atkinson’s of Lancaster within sniffing distance of the Merchant’s beer garden for over 100 years.

    Please Note: Although we appreciate many people who visit Lancaster are here to sample Lancasters’ rich nightlife, we still remain a family-friendly business and regret that we cannot allow customers in fancy dress or sportswear. Our dress code is smart casual.

    We are now dog-friendly, please note this is only for our first bay and we ask that owners keep control of their well-behaved pets at all times.

    No under-5s are permitted in our main restaurant from 7 pm, however, they are still welcome in our child-friendly bar area under parental supervision until 9 pm. 

    Under 18s are welcome during food service hours.

    Thank you.
