Lancaster University
8.1 / 10 Overall Satisfaction
(based on 121 ratings in 2017)
In a few words
"The Sugarhouse club is owned by the students' union so only students and their guests are allowed in. This gives you a place to go out where you feel safe and part of the university community. Other pubs and bars that I'd recommend are Merchants, Sphere and the Water Witch. There's something to suit everyone."
