Two of Lancaster’s favourite pubs have been awarded the highest possible score from the county’s tourist board for their locally sourced, seasonal menus.

Greaves Park in Lancaster and The Keys at Slyne have featured highly in the Taste Lancashire Quality Assurance scheme.

The award shows customers which food and drink establishments provide a “consistently high quality experience and a commitment to the use of local produce,” as independently assessed by Visit Lancashire.

Both pubs have been recognised for their hospitality and also for their menus, such as meat from Cornvale of Carnforth and Lancaster Smokehouse.

The Keys was recognised as serving “a high standard of cuisine.”

Anthony Parker, manager of Greaves Park, said: “Since my wife and I took over Greaves Park two years ago, we have adopted a ‘field to plate’ ethos that ensures the quality and content of our food is something to be proud of.

“We source locally and everything is cooked to order.”

Dave Curzon, manager of The Keys, said: “This award is fantastic news for our customers.”
