Went here last week with my husband. The staff weren't very quick at taking our order, the food was serviced in a reasonable amount of time but the waitress was not very pleasant at all, felt like we were putting her out. Food was lovely (i had a burger and my husband had the chicken), but I wouldn't rush back... More

Although I am a veteran of the thin white duke I have never offered a review of this centrally located bar / restaurant, the bar is situated on Devonshire street and is within walking distance of Carlisle train station, as soon as you walk in the door you feel welcome and relaxed , dark wood antique furniture, exposed brickwork and...

Braised cheek was soft and tender and full of flavour, I had the flat iron steak which was cooked to perfection. Lovely friendly staff and nothing seems to much trouble

I always, always enjoy coming here for meals and for nights out. Every time I get the Duke burger and I always rave on about how amazing it is to others!

Thoroughly enjoyable evening with friends. We sat downstairs for our meal, which was; as always, absolutely delicious. The staff are wonderful and nothing is too much trouble for them. Always a nice atmosphere here. We sat chatting until nearly midnight as we were so comfortable.

Visited last night with our son and his friend. First visit to Carlisle. Really good choice on the menu and food was well cooked. First time we've had homemade crispy beef and the halloumi was the best I've ever had. Bottle of New Zealand Sauv Blanc which was a very good price. I loved the music too - a fun... More

Visited here on a Thursday night with friends from work. Service was fantastic and the food was great can't fault them. Prices very reasonable. If you are eating here ask to be seated downstairs as it is very cosy and adds to the evening with the fab decor. Just wished I lived closer to Carlisle as I would be back... More
