We came for a meal out for my friend’s birthday, 4 of us in total. Staff were polite and friendly and the dining room atmosphere was nice, we had a few drinks, mains and a couple of us had desserts, I had the sea bass...which was really nice, and the apple crumble which was also lovely. Looking forward to coming back.More

I just wanted to say how disgusted I was with the way I was treated tonight when we arrived for food. I was refused entry into the Pub Dining section as i was wearing tracksuit bottoms, and would only be served in the Vault. now...to say we have been coming to this pub for a long time is an understatement, I recently had a total hip replacement and explained this to the waiting staff who happened to be wearing tracksuit bottoms for work. so finding clothes that are comfy is a challenge. I have worn shorts and tracksuit bottoms plenty of times to dine in the PUB . Has the dress code suddenly changed ? I had a 3 course meal in a restaurant on Christmas eve in an actual restaurant wearing the same tracksuit you refused me .... you will never get my custom again and I will be letting everybody I know how I was treated tonight. Also my wife happens to work at the primary school down the road and will be telling all the staff how I have been treated .... this will also be going on trip advisor ,google reviews and the Lee's brewery and the rose of lancaster facebook pages.... disability discrimination. Now sat in a restaurant in the same clothes I had on eating .... Yet there are photos of a dog drinking from a pint pot on the bar on their facebook page !!!!! Can JWLee's really afford to lose customers in this current climate?? The place was empty and they turned me away ... your loss as I hope everyone I know stays away after I tell them what's happened tonight I hope JWLees kick you to the kerb. Running a once decent place to eat into the ground alienating customers who have been coming for over 20 years. I will be seeking legal advice under the disability discrimination act.More

This is a family friendly pub/ restaurant, with very good food, great beers. The staff are all very friendly and professional. The manager runs a very tight ship and thankfully keeps out the great unwashed. Don't go if you like a rowdy pub and like...swearing!More

Will not be eating here again. This treatment has really...upset us all. This was the first time my friends were eating here. On recommendation by me. Won’t do this againMore

Four of us in my family decided to treat ourselves to a dinner out after a very bust tiring Christmasdinner that i cooked for 6.. My best friend said, try the Rose of Lancaster. Oh boy did I regret listening. Below you will see photos...of people wearing tracksuit tops, beany hat, trainers, jeans, ripped laddererd tights on a waitress. But my son was wearing very smart tracksuit bottoms. The manager, rude and obnoxiously said he can't cone in. I said why, he said for 10yrs, the dress code has never changed. I could not believe what I was hearing. He said it should be in your email confirmation. I'm sorry but I didn't book it, so I didn't get a dress code, neither did my son ormy husband. The manager insisted we left and get changed. As I looked around trainers, ripped jeans, beanies, sports t shirts, ripped laddered wittress tights and tracksuit tops. Why was my disabled son picked on? I am going to take this further as not only were we discriminated against but also humiliated.More

I am meeting up with a few friends in between Christmas and the New Year for few beers and to watch a football match, which is being shown on Amazon Prime. I rang the pub to ask if they showed matches on Amazon Prime. When...I asked the person answering the phone if they had Amazon Prime, the response was 'I don't know', the line then went silent for a couple of seconds, leaving me thinking she was going to ask someone who knew. Nope, she didn't ask anyone just hung up. Bit rude, ....guess I will keep looking for pub that is showing the match.More
