Proper Northern Fine Dining
without the pomp & faff

Welcome to the Secret Bistro.
Lancaster‘s “quirky” fine-dining restaurant.

From its humble beginnings in a cosy room above The Palatine in Morecambe, The Secret Bistro continues its story in its own residence in Lancaster to host the best of Modern British/European Fusion, set within a delightfully quirky interior and an eclectic soundtrack to feed the most budding of gastro-audiophiles.

Set out to please all of your senses, we welcome you to experience the best in freshly prepared and locally sourced Instagram-worthy dishes, washed down with carefully selected drinks offering to complement the relaxed and down-to-earth service which awaits you.

We are PROPER Northern Fine Dining & Quirky- But first, you’ll have to find us…

We have a rule of bringing the best of local to our dishes; all of our produce is sourced locally and within the season.
