Various: Traditional Pubs
Lancaster has a great selection of traditional pubs. There are plenty to choose from, as you would expect from a City with a large resident student population. They do get very busy on weekends. Midweek and lunchtimes can be quiet.
You can try the Farmers Arms or the Alex (now calling itself Revolution) which are very large pubs on Penny Street as you go into the one way traffic system.
For the friendly local pub, try The Moorlands (Quarry Rd) or The Bowerham (Bowerham Road).
For live music (jazz on Sundays) try the John O Gaunt in Market Street, which is on the pedestrianised area of the Town Centre.
For traditional pubs with a good atmosphere, try the Water Witch (canal side); George & Dragon (St George's Quay); The Three Mariners (off St Georges Quay).
For photo's see the Pubs Travelogue.
