Will Larter left this review about The Cornerhouse

The Cornerhouse is in part of the building which I remember as the Co-op department store when I lived in Lancaster in the late 70s. It has an entrance in New Street and a side door in Church Street; the New Street side also has pavement furniture, giving it the feel of a Parisian cafe. Inside, it's more like a boudoir, with mirrors, private booths and turquoise chair backs all hinting at something more decadent than the reality. The bar counter is normal enough, with eight hand pumps and the barman pulling through the beers and checking that the correct pump clips had been placed on them. Having recently drunk Kirkby Lonsdale Stanleys and being familiar with Hawkshead Windermere Pale I was able to help him out before taking my half of Kirkby Lonsdale Monumental to sit looking out onto Montmartre, or wherever I had been transponded to. There appears to be a dining room or separate bistro, which may have been brought here (by the same matter transponder) from Rome, to judge by the menu and the accent of the maitre d'. However, joking aside, I found this place to be well run, the beers (I tasted three) in good nick, and the prices quite a bit cheaper than in the Borough, the Sun and in Merchants 1688 on the same day.
