The Brasserie

The Brasserie was the first part of our journey in transforming the Royal Kings Arms hotel. Now established as a local favourite, the Brasserie has not only received OpenTable’s Diner’s Choice Award, but was recently nominated in the Northern Design Awards.

Offering a very special dining experience our chef has brought together the finest locally-sourced ingredients with the best of international cuisine and created mouth-watering menus that cater for all tastes. Delicious Lancashire steak, glorious salads, Sunday Roasts, tasty vegetarian risottos and vegan specialities are lovingly prepared and beautifully presented.

Whether you’re popping in for coffee and cake, an express lunch or more leisurely dining experience, The Brasserie, set in our magnificently renovated hotel, is sure to find a special place in your heart.

Great food and service!

The staff are polite and friendly and the lamb rump was delicious. My partner had the pork belly and thai chicken and loved it! We will definitely be back again.

My wife Janet and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves last Saturday night, and it was a masterstroke having a piper playing at the Lancaster Castle.

The whole team that served the Supper in the Brasserie should be proud of themselves.

Special mention to Dean, the restaurant manager who offered us a cocktail at the end of the evening.... Unfortunately had to pass on that occasion because I had a 23 miler trail run in the morning at Kendal
