You'll want to go back again

I took my wife here for her birthday last year, and yes we're going back again next month. We've only been for a meal at Lunchtime and can only say one word - SUPERB. Value for money it definitely is, and the surroundings quiet and subdued. Staff very friendly. Carry on Davids - you've got it just... read more

Had booked for dinner here on Wednesday 20th May and was very impressed by my visit. It was my first time here and it has always been on my list of places to make a trip to. Had noticed an excellent deal on their website of £23.95 for three courses and this really grabbed by attention that caused me to... More

In Carlisle for work and happened upon this restaurant. Atmosphere relaxing and inviting. Excellent service and Devine food. We shared a soufflé for starters and the lamb was sublime and awakened taste buds I did not even know I had. Dessert was fresh tasty and completed the best meal I have eaten in England. Coffee and chocolate the icing on... More

We were greeted immediately by a friendly waitress who took us to our table. We were both undecided on what to have for our starter, she recommended the three cheese soufflé with caramelised onion...top choice!!! It was... More

Both of us really enjoyed our meal this evening. Although it was a Tuesday most tables were taken by the end of the evening. A very nice, warm and comfortable restaurant. The service was very good and the staff very nice. We both enjoyed three courses all of which were very tasty and well presented. I have been a number... More

We had a table reservation Mid Week, on arrival we stood for some time at the entrance to the back Dining Area and waited to be seated, the young waitress and waiter did not acknowledge us at all, which was rather embarrassing, we had to Waite for the lady owner to come along and seat us. We were seated in... More

Popped in for a three course lunch with my mum just before Christmas. Service was fantastic and the food was to die for. I would fully recommend going here.

Thank you for your comments I'm glad you all enjoyed your meal. I would stress that I did apologise when you raised the issue with myself. To explain to other diners how it occurred the menu you choose from was only online for 1 week while we were closed for annual holidays when we returned we realised some items were... More

Had a fantastic reunion lunch here with 5 other family members and it was one of the best meals we have (all) ever had. The steaks were exceptional and the lamb & chicken dishes were equally as good. I've eaten here many times over the years and the ambiance is now a little less formal from when the original Davids... More
