Our function rooms are both stylish and versatile, and enjoy a stunning view of Lancaster Castle. Situated on the first floor of the hotel, and accessed from our magnificent staircase or by lift, the Ballroom and Library can be set and dressed to your specific requirements. The Ballroom seats up to 80 guests, or can hold 100 for a party with buffet, whilst the Library offers a more intimate experience for groups up to 40. Situated either side of our first floor reception and bar, many of our clients choose to combine both rooms for their event. We offer an extensive choice of menus, or can create one specifically for your event. Our chef puts great emphasis on the use of locally sourced ingredients, at the same time being one of the most creative in the area. The Royal Kings Arms event planning team will work with you to take care of every detail, and will work hard to ensure that everything runs smoothly on the day. We would be delighted to show you around, so please call us on 01524 32451 or email us using the form below.

A quick message to thank you, Dean, Chef and all the team there for our wonderful Christmas Lunch yesterday. The food was excellent, the service first rate, and all the staff helpful and professional. The room and tables were also beautifully decorated. It was also a pleasure for me to deal with yourself at intervals throughout the year making the organisation of the event smooth and stress free! Always a bonus! Many thanks again and I hope you will have us back next year. Kindest regards from the Trustees, staff and residents at the Charity.

The Kitty Brown Fashion Show on behalf of A.C.E.

On behalf of A.C.E I would like to thank the staff of The Royal Kings Arms Hotel for the use of the library for the Kitty Brown Charity Fashion show which raised a total of £499.00 for Achieve, Change and Engagement. Without your contribution we would have been unable to host then evening which was enjoyed by all who attended and raised valuable funds for our charity. All fundraising events by A.C.E contribute to the emotional health and wellbeing service that we provide to young people aged 11 – 25 years in the Lancaster District and Fylde and Wyre.
