Just down the hill from Castle View, J Atkinson & Co. Coffee Roasters and Tea Merchants is definitely worth a visit. It’s been going since 1837 and you feel like you’re going back in time!
Next door to the shop is their post-industrial style café, The Hall. Award winning ‘flat whites’ and scrumptious cakes and sandwiches. The Hall is licensed and often open into the evenings, sometimes with live music.
Further into the town centre in Sun Square you can find their smaller “showcase” venue, The Music Room, with indoor and outdoor seating. The Music Room is a unique Lancaster Trust building with a 1730s Palladian façade.
