The Water Witch, Lancaster - Review

I’VE enjoyed many a meal at the Water Witch, off Lancaster’s canal towpath.

It offers a wide range of quality pub food, making it a dependable old favourite.

So when the pub launched a series of themed dining evenings to show off the talents of head chef Harvey Jones, I decided to give one a try.

This month, the theme was A Taste of the Sea. For £25 each, you get a five-course set menu and two glasses of wine.

My partner Becky and I received a warm welcome, and were led to the upstairs dining area, which is almost like its own little cosy enclave.

We ordered drinks, me a malty Wychert ale and she a lemonade.

It wasn’t long before our nibbles arrived – smoked salmon brochettes with a citrus tartare and beetroot confit. These were tasty cubes of salmon and beetroot on wooden spears,

while the confit was a sweet paste containing small pieces of beetroot.
