Lancaster and Morecambe boast some stunning places to eat. It has an array of great pubs serving hearty feasts and high-end cuisine showcasing some of the fantastic locally sourced produce including potted shrimps, Cartmel sticky toffee pudding, Damson Gin and Smoked Fish from the Port of Lancaster Smokehouse.
In between there is a wealth of stylish coffee shops and cafes to choose from for a speciality coffee pit stop or to while away the hours sat outside watching the world pass by.
You can also still show your love to the dining options that are being provided to pick up and eat at home.
Lots of the venues in the area are reliant on takeaway trade now more than ever and so if you can show your support, it will ensure that there’s still a growing and diverse number of places to spend a night out when we are back to normal-ish.
Please remember that if you order through a delivery app they take a proportion of the profit from the restaurant, so it’s always worth calling them direct as so many of the options are offering superbly socially distanced collection facilities and that way you’ll have the knowledge that all your pounds are going into Lancaster’s bottom line.
Put your feet, grab the phone and let us take you on a culinary trip of the area’s best dine at home dishes.
