My boyfriend started working in and around Lancaster back in August time and has since then been raving about a sandwich shop near his offices called Moorish. He works in Lancaster Centre once a week and without fail I would get a call with a full report of just how “bangin’” his latest sub sandwich was. Nothing rivals it in his opinion – and this coming from a London boy…
Knowing Cian well I was inclined to believe him but most weren’t. How could this tiny independent shop make a better sandwich than the culinary metropolises of London and Manchester? I was more than willing to find out.
After a night of birthday fun and frolicking we woke to our Moorish alarms – set for 2pm so as not to miss out. I hadn’t realised that Lancaster was basically a glorified village so after a short and pleasant walk in the early spring sun we arrived outside the tiny, narrow building that hosted these highly renowned creative treats.
Inside was clean and simply decorated with a mix of cultural artefacts linked with the unusual but enjoyable list of sandwich names.
I went for a foot long Joey Tribiani – meatballs, mozzarella, mushrooms and salami. Cian went for the Tony Soprano vs El Cid: Salami, Pepperoni, Ham, Mozzarella, Chicken and Chorizo.
Also on the menu was The Kitchen Sink: Beef, Chicken, Ham and Pepperoni – Dean Moriarty: Halloumi, Mushrooms and Mozzarella – Jimmy Olsen: BBQ pulled pork with roasted red onions… just to name a few.
All can be had as a wrap, a salad box, or on a baked potato.
As well as these wonderful toppings you have a choice of fresh salad: jalapenos, lettuce, tomato, pepper (cooked or raw), onion, olives, gherkins etc.
Toasted, wrapped and paid for – not the cheapest but by no means extortionate for such fresh ingredients so lovingly put together (£7.90 approx. for foot long) – we cradled our baby subs out in to the square where we obligingly devoured them in a state of heavenly bliss.
Cian was not wrong. I have never had a better sandwich and I can’t imagine wanting one from anywhere else in the near future. I was saddened that my stomach couldn’t finish it although Cian didn’t mind helping me out.
If you’re ever in Lancaster and hungry – Moorish is the place to go!

Nearly always treat myself to a Moorish on a Monday, every time it has been fantastic! I've tried loads of options of the menu, and I'm never disappointed!

I was once a frequent visitor to Moorish, though after a change in work circumstances it was no longer in my immediate vicinity. I am not going to lie, I miss this place for lunch!

The service is a little slow, and if there is a queue then expect to be in for a wait. However, the guy is really friendly and happy to chat to you, and even the customers seem to be a friendly bunch and happy to chat while you wait!

HOwever, it is all worth it when the product arrives. It is like eating a loaf of freshly baked bread, smothered and stuffed full of whatever delights you choose to eat from his wide and varied menu.

This is always my destination of choice when i am in the area, and I am always fuller than full after stuffing down a good old footlong sub!

I ordered a halloumi and hummus, expecting .... well, halloumi and hummus. What I got was halloumi cooked up with spices, very decent hummus, the usual salad stuff of lettuce, tomatoes, and onion but also a choice of roasted peppers, sun dried tomatoes, jalapenos, olives and more. All in a large brown baguette (my choice from several options). Cost = £5.00. It was AWESOME!!!!!
