Toll House Inn | Lancaster

In the heart of historic Lancaster, The Toll House Inn is an ideal location for exploring the city of Lancaster when cycling the Way of the Roses. The remarkable city of Lancaster is proud of its newly refurbished Toll House Inn. And unsurprisingly so. This is a place to celebrate, relax, unwind, and enjoy the best of Lancastrian dining. With the cheery cocktail of friendly faces and creative chefs you know you’re all set for a treat here at the Toll House Inn.


History of Toll House Inn


Our grand old lady was rebuilt in 1901 housing the Corporation Arms (which later became the Farmer’s Arms) and the White Cross Hotel. This was the former site of the Corporation Toll House, collecting levies from traders on their way to market in Lancaster.


In 2007 Daniel Thwaites invested substantially to develop the two pubs in to one – known as Penny Street Bridge.


Refurbished in 2015 and re-named the Toll House Inn, we’re proud of our long history and heritage, offering the warmest of welcomes to travellers and traders visiting our beautiful city of Lancaster. The Inn itself has wonderfully high ceilings, which make it feel light and modern. But, the period features are very much retained and can be seen everywhere from the listed staircase to servant bell hooks and stained glass windows.




Guest rooms are contemporary and stylish - with high ceilings and many original features - there's even a listed wardrobe in one of the rooms. With air-conditioning, colour TV, tea & coffee trays and comfy beds you'll find all you need whether travelling on business or pleasure.


Food & Drink


Our menus are traditional in the sense that they offer you a warming array of your favourite home-cooked dishes that have been lovingly prepared by our talented team of chefs. You can enjoy dishes which are freshly prepared to order using good quality local ingredients, sourced from trusted suppliers in the area including delicious cuts of meat, seasonal vegetables and cheeses. And make sure you can find space for a pudding, you won’t be disappointed.
