user reviews of the Palatine, Morecambe

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

A Saturday afternoon visit to Morecambe for football with my first stop for a pint being the Palatine.

A healthy selection of 6 ales across the 8 hand pumps. 3 from Lancaster Brewery, 2 from Kirkby Lonsdale and the remaining ale from Allgates. My pints of Kirkby Lonsdale Loose Head @ 3.7% were both very good.

Only a few punters in during my lunchtime visit. The interior has stripped wooden floor and exposed brickwork the wooden tables and chairs compliment the wooden bar and ambient lighting gives the pub a nice feel to it.

Food available, I didn't look at a menu but a chap near me ordered a sandwich and it looked good.

Good start to the day and yet another pub in Lancashire ticked.

Reasonable pub with a view out to sea (or is it across the Bay?). Decent ale though maybe a slight emphasis on food over beer. The Lancaster red was a nice pint.

Good choice of cask beers including 4 of Lancaster Brewery's offerings (Amber, Blonde, Black and Red). Impressed that when a customer indicated that the Amber was below par it was instantly taken off and the barrel changed; the complainant's beer was changed for the stronger and more expensive Red without surcharge, at which another customer requested (and received) a similar replacement (fair enough). The man in charge was Daniel Lambert (his namesake was the fattest man in England and is buried in Stamford). Well worth a visit.

Nice place, decent selection of ales. That's the good bit. Our early evening visit was ruined by incessant, annoyingly loud rave-type music. The rest of the clientele looked too old to be aficionados of that sort of stuff. Tried the upstairs lounge - no respite from the aural assault.

Off after one pint, we would otherwise have happily stayed longer

Decent selection of 8 cask ales, seemingly one of the only decent pubs in Morecambe.

This pub was the best of 6/7 Morecambe pubs we sampled yesterday and was a significant improvement on the Joiner's Arms, just down the road. 4 of the Lancaster beers were on - Amber, Straw, Red & Black, alongside a couple from Fullers - Chiswick Bitter & Summer Ale and also Springhead Robin Hood. Westons Traditional Scrumpy was the cider. The interior has a modern feel and the clientele was a mix of locals and visitors. It has a nice location overlooking the Bay too.

First in as doors open at 10.30 and it passed the test after a false start i.e. beers not turned on and I suspect the one I finally got was nearer the end of the barrel than the start but nevertheless more than acceptable. Staff friendly and keen so all in all a good start to my day.

Called in here last Sunday lunchtime. Good little pub with very friendly and helpful staff. Several real beers from the Lancaster Brewery and (i think) four guest beers. Started with a pint of Lancaster Blonde which was disappointing. It had an end of barrel taste and, lo' and behold when I went back to the bar it had been taken off. Subsequently tried Thwaites Albert Wainwright and the Lancaster Blonde again, once it had gone back on, both of which were excellent. From upstairs there are nice views across the bay. Can't comment too much on the food as we only had pizza and chips (which were very nice though). Amongst our little group the general consensus was that this is a top little pub!

Good ale served in a friendly bar, best place for a decent ale in Morcambe.

Mid-summer's day in Morecambe was quite a depressing experience until I entered this little heaven. The Lancaster beer was excellent, four guests as if that wasn't enough and a selection of foreign beers to go at. Food looked interesting though I didn't partake, and the barman very helpful dn friendly. Must now seek out the other Lancaster Brewery pubs!

this must be the best pub on morecambe promanade by a fast incoming tide.{that a take on a country mile} but then again it hasnt much competition,with the dreadfull kings almost next door, owned by the lancaster brewery it showcases the full range of thier brews .i sampled a blonde and a red and they were both spot on. it is a one room pub but the way its been layed out with dark wood furniture makes it feel very airy and continental , one of the tables over looks the bay . there is food available in a sorrt of build your own meal tapas sort of way. although we didnt eat plenty around us were. worth mentioning also was the friendly barman who was passionate about his work and the company he works for

Were a bit short of barstaff on Saturday lunchtime, but beer was good

Excellent real ale pub right on the seafront. Cosy lounge area and upstairs room with sea view! Four top notch Lancaster beers - I can never resist a Blonde - aswell as two guests and draught Regent lager when I visited. Excellent Belgian hot chocolate/coffee/tea for the drivers.

Excellent place, eight real ales, a selection of continental premium lagers, chatty and helpful staff. Rather small and could be rather crowded and noisy quite easily. I didn't try the food but I have no hesitation recommending The Palatine.

SUPERB REAL ALE PUB JUST TAKEN OVER BY LANCASTER BREWERY- Dont look @ the photo as it really does no justice to the place. I ordered a pint of Lancaster Black and it was so divine i stayed and had a pint of Lancaster Red too. The food looked delicious aswell and wasnt overpriced either,Gotta be the best pub in Morecambe without a doubt, 9/10
