Quite Simply French creates seasonal innovative menus that change every day. We use only the finest ingredients from local and specialist suppliers. Our ethos is bespoke, which means our all our dishes are cooked in small batches. We cook our food fresh to order and serve it with a friendly smile!

Rob and his team will greet you like old pals when you arrive and remember your coat when you leave. The candlelit romance of the place is intensified by its location, by the river on the historic St George's Quay.

Quite Simply French is one of the Lancaster's finest restaurants, a culinary destination where everything from the glassware to the charming staff to the meticulously crafted cuisine is selected with perfection in mind.

Our food is modern French but with most of our seasonal produce supplied locally we pay homage to Britain and Lancashire. Whilst steeped in the French tradition of best ingredients, wines and staff we embrace informality in our kitchen and dining room.

We are the only restaurant in Lancaster and within 50 miles of Lancaster to have a live lobster tank and specialise in fresh shellfish and seafood.

Early Bird - Tuesday to Saturday . Starters 50% off Mains £10
Wednesday - Steak and Mussels - £20
Thursdays Lobster and Champagne, a whole lobster and 2 glasses of champagne only £40.
Sunday and Monday - Simply Squiffy Offer, 2 courses and a bottle of wine for only £25.
Sunday Lunch - 2 courses for £20.

We have a extensive wine list and cocktail menu and are one of Lancaster's most popular restaurants. Christmas Parties are incredibly popular and booking is advisable well in advance.
