Amazing food - tapas night on a friday! Fantastic atmosphere. Buffet style tapas with a variety of different foods. Great choice of drinks too. 100% recommended!

My first visit and lived up to my expectations. Scallop starter then fillet steak (medium rare) followed by profiteroles. Fabulous food, excellent service, cheery staff, quaint restaurant with a lovely ambiance. Really close the Carlisle and the M6 so no excuses for not going back.

Called for lunch on a jolly hot day and sat outside in the terraced garden area. Service was excellent and very efficient and the light bite lunch was beautifully presented and reasonably priced. Will call again if in the area.

I’m not sure if this happens every Friday but when we popped in they had a free buffet spread of excellent little bite sized food. Good selection of gin, and they allow you to take your dog through to the beer garden.

Although advertised as a restaurant our experience with the supper served in Fantails was a big disappointment. In a restaurant I expect freshly cooked food. The prawn and smoked salmon salad were just a bunch of (fresh) ingredients mixed with a so called marie rose...More
