Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The White Cross

Upmarket canal-side pub / restaurant in a well-converted (and extended) old building also benefiting from a row of wooden tables along the towpath which proved an excellent spot for a pint on a sunny, early autumn, afternoon. Usually has up to 14 real ales on handpump, but even with six plus a couple of ciders in these strange coronavirus times the selection was still reasonable, and I opted for the Tirril Grasmere Gold (£4.00) which proved a good choice.

no qualms with quality or range of beer here, it's a bit of an emporium. but the place itself is completely up its own arse sadly, devoid of any atmosphere or soul and not cheap at all. comfortable and pleasant enough but plenty of better places in Lancaster. though many will disagree with me.

Pubs with as many as 15 hand pumps tend to get dismissed by me as permanent beer festivals or drinking barns, so I have to say this is the most pub-like I've ever experienced. The bar manager was friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable, without being at all condescending. The atmosphere, given the size of the place, was cosy. I can imagine that in summer, with people spilling out onto the canal-side benches, it would feel a little different, but the excellent beer range, with some "usual suspects" at one end of the bar and obscurities at the other, with a decent choice of darker, maltier beers for the winter, would make this my top pub in Lancaster at this time of year.
