Commonly claimed to be the oldest pub in Lancaster. It certainly looks old, inside as well as out and many of the beams and stones are old. Built into the side of Castle Hill, the cellar is excavated at first-floor level. The strip of cobbles at the front and the nearby grassy areas are occupied by tables for drinkers. The pub is now a popular watering hole with a thriving local clientele, and is involved with the maritime section of the Lancaster Music Festival in October. Home-cooked, reasonably priced food is available. Limited parking.

Claims to be 15th century, reliably dated to 1778. It
