Written By Hans Dryer

The John O Gaunt Pub is an historic pub, in the centre of Lancaster.

It is a long and thin pub, with the bar about half way down on the right.

It serves food during the day, and real ales including Black Sheep Bitter.

The pub decor is traditional, and quite dim.

The food speciality on our visit was Sausages! There were several to choose from, served with either Mash, Champ (mash with spring onion), or Chips.

We has the Pork and Chilli sausages, with Champ and a beer - a delicious combination.

The bar staff were friendly, and the food service was quick.

The toilets are located out the bac, where you also go to the smoking area... the gents are to the left, the ladies to the right.

On entrance to the gents you'll find a large p*ss stone urinal to your right, with a sink area at the end, a condom machine and radiator to your left, and a toilet cubicle opposite.

The urinal stone is very nice and old, quite square in design, with a cistern to the upper right next to the frosted window.

It had yellow soap and a blue p*ss filter!

Also above the urinal is a piece of wood, with an old piece of bar seat covering on it (see photo). It reads...


Presumably Oliver Reed new a good pub and toilets when he saw them!

At the end of the room is the small cubicle, with a quite old bowl in it, with a newer wooden seat, right hand flush, roll, brush etc.

The corner sink area features soap and an electric dryer.

A great character filled pub, and old loos!

“Sadly the John O'Gaunt toilets have been refurbished and the Oliver Reed tribute removed. Humbug.”

“If it was removed, It's now back. The Oliver Reed Tribute was there a few weeks ago.”
