been here a few time as of recent, coving the site at night and day with various people. i first went here about 4 years ago and not much has changed really, the stairs in the place are no worse then back then amazingly.

History:- designed by W A Deighton in 1901. Deighton was a well-known brewery architect who was also responsible for the Grade II-listed Cook Street Brewery in Salford.
Mitchell's were established in 1865. but in 2010 english heritage tested the timbers of parts of the building and found that the 3 floor plus attic malthouse has been there since 1750, which is a factor in the building still standing as over the years there have been plans to knock it down.

Mitchell's of Lancaster is a well established family owned pub and hotel company, operating seven individual, quality hotels and 55 traditional inns in North Lancashire and Cumbria.

"Established for over 140 years, the company was founded by William Mitchell and is now run by the founder's great-great-grandchildren. The story goes that a chance meeting with a friend provided the money William needed to build his own brewery. Once the brewery was built, William went on to build a number of large hotels and inns, strategically sited within the Lancaster and Morecambe area. The company no longer brews its own beer, but maintains the family traditions of running good quality establishments offering an excellent range of cask ales, fine wines and home-cooked food in comfortable surroundings"
