This week in our Love Local column, we speak to Robert Mason who is the owner of Quite Simply French restaurant with rooms on St George’s Quay, Lancaster.

“Since 1996 people have visited our restaurant for beautifully created fresh food, with an accent on French cuisine but always rooted in Lancashire. The emphasis is on great ingredients from the area with local charm and stylish panache.

“Fresh lobster, oysters, escargot and seasonal fresh fish. A range of steak options, all British of course, alongside curated vegetarian options, will tempt anyone to visit again and again. Our team of chefs create dishes in batches, based on seasonal availability to provide an ever changing menu.

“Our four dreamy bedrooms nestle under the eaves with sumptuous beds clad in the finest cotton bedlinen. Romantic free-standing baths and rainfall showers come with plenty of hot water and Bath House toiletries.

"You’ll love the character, dictated by the old building and the designer furnishings, all handpicked by us to add a little ‘je ne sais quoi’ and adding to the sense of a boutique bolthole. Find vaulted ceilings showcasing original beams dating back to 1750, with chandeliers in every bedroom. Each of our five star boutique bedrooms is styled individually, all with its own unique character.
