The Foodworks Restaurant is the AA Rosette-awarded eatery of the 4-star Lancaster House Hotel, offering a fantastic blend of traditional and contemporary recipes. Leading on from the hotel lounge with its inviting open fires, the restaurant offers a chic dining setting that is children-friendly.

Head Chef Damien Ng showcases the very best in Lancashire produce on the Foodworks Restaurant menu, and adds inventive tweaks to traditional local recipes. The fish and chips are coated in Lancaster Brewery blonde beer batter, while a portobello mushroom stack has perfectly matured Lancashire cheese combined with broccoli pesto. There is also an extensive children's menu with numerous healthy options.

Desserts at The Foodworks Restaurant Lancaster are wonderfully decadent, and continue the local theme: ice cream comes from Wallings of Cockerham, there is homemade Lancashire ginger parkin with rich toffee sauce, and also a cheeseboard of local varieties to choose from, as well as a large wine list.

Combining style with reassuring tradition, The Foodworks Restaurant is adjacent to Lancaster University, and a 19-minute drive from Lancaster Rail Station.

    Very poor and slow service. Took over an hour to serve starter. Gave up asking for vinegar for
    My fish and chips

    We thoroughly enjoyed our meal, we were pushed for time & the waitress kindly offered to tell the chef so we could get through our meal relatively quickly, which we did, we were in at 6.30pm & out for 7.30pm. the food was delicious, my only complaint was that the parsnips were not cooked through completely, and were just too hard. We had a 20% discount coupon so it was no problem. I found the dessert menu a little disappointing, I usually order a dessert but nothing took my fancy. the surroundings are nice , the carpet was stained & is probably due to be replaced, but the ambience was good & we were not the only diners. Overall I would highly recommend this restaurant.

    Staff were polite but in need of some training and reinforcements - it was a busy evening but we felt a bit neglected. Food was ok but not exceptional. My chestnut salad had more beetroot than nut.

    It was very poor. The starter took an hour to arrive, and the food was unspectacular. I was disappointed and rather angry about the whole experience.
