About us

Right in the centre of bustling Lancaster you’ll discover the listed townhouse of Penny Street Bridge. Once a Corporation Toll House, it was demolished in 1901, only to be rebuilt as two separate pubs and then joined together again to make what is now Penny Street Bridge.

The townhouse itself has wonderfully high ceilings which make it feel light and modern. But, the period features are very much retained and can be seen everywhere, from the listed staircase to servant bell hooks and from stained glass windows to a listed wardrobe in one of the bedrooms.

The emphasis here is most definitely on our simple, yet well executed menu, created using local seasonal produce from trusted suppliers in the area. But what really sets us apart is the imaginative choice of drinks – including exclusively sourced wines, seasonal cocktails and award winning Thwaites cask ales.

We pride ourselves on offering a really warm atmosphere in which to relax and unwind away from the hustle and bustle of the city outside. Everything is simple, yet elegant in a quirky way, which makes it feel homely yet contemporary. The mismatch of tables, tub chairs in the bar and brasserie and unique use of space in the bedrooms will leave you in no doubt you’re in Penny Street Bridge.
