Set in a 130-year-old former cotton mill warehouse on the edge of the Lancaster Canal, The White Cross is a short stroll from the city centre. A regularly changing selection of up to 14 cask ales includes beers from Copper Dragon, Timothy Taylor and Theakston breweries, but food is an equal draw at this popular waterfront venue. Look out for starters like poached egg duck egg Royale; or pan-fried king scallops and black pudding, then follow with Cajun marinated chicken fillet burger; haddock and chips; or honey roast duck breast with spiced Puy lentils, baby fondant potatoes and crispy fennel. If there's still room after all that, try warm sticky toffee and date pudding; or 'crumble of the week.' Sandwiches, grills, salads and deli boards are also available. A beer and pie festival takes place in late April.
