WINTER 2021 COVID UPDATE - PLEASE CLICK FOR DETAILS
Here’s where we are…
1) Opening hours remain Fri/Sat/Sun only..
Government guidance is contradictory given clean indoor air is the real issue. We sanitise the air before each service, but we have poor airflow around the bar. We are not subjecting our team to the known risks of an over-busy tight bar. So;
2) Table service and reduced capacity stays but with greater flexibility;
A) All group size limits are removed
B) Consuming whilst standing and mingling are both allowed
We are not restoring former venue capacity so;
3) Masks are discretionary.
Masking up to walk a few metres to a table or the loo is pure Covid theatre – but to us, wearers’ discretion means respecting each others’ position. Most team members won’t be wearing masks. We will not tolerate any harassment of guests or team whatever they choose to do in this regard.
4) Track & trace no longer required
We won’t be asking for your details but our QR code remains if you wish to scan it.
5) 100% electronic payments
Every business is going to travel its own path. This is not the end as the last week has shown. We ask you to respect our decisions just as we respect your right to choose what works for you.
Our best wishes to you all – we hope it’s a summer of love!

JOIN US FOR SUNDAY LUNCH
The battle between Richard III and his challenger and victor – Henry Tudor, was one of the most important in English history, effectively ending the Wars of the Roses.
Richard III, buried in Leicester Cathedral, is the only English royal buried outside of Westminster or Windsor. Historians now believe Richard III rested his army at the bottom of the hill we sit on the foothills of.
Our name, The Lancaster Arms and our logo with Richard’s boar, honours both sides. In that same spirit of friendship, we look forward to seeing you and to quote William Shakespeare:
Let us ‘drink to the joy of the whole table’
WHAT WE’RE KNOWN FOR.
Beer & cheese. Wine & cheese. Bread & cheese. Crackers & cheese. Or just cheese. However you take yours, we have some of the world’s finest for you to enjoy.
Made from much sought after Shorthorn beef and Colston Bassett stilton served with hand cut chips.
Not only were the management and staff incredibly welcoming but the atmosphere was superb. A real homely yet pub like feeling, the perfect blend. The food that accompanied this was delicious, I’d go back just to try everything.
We will definitely return with empty bellies to fill!!
“Everything was cooked perfectly”
The roasts also came with Yorkshire puddings, roasted garlic & stuffing. Everything was cooked perfectly and super tasty.
The service was just right- really friendly and helpful without being intrusive.”
