This was my second visit to this restaurant, on this occasion for lunch during a break in our journey to Edinburgh. Quite simply, I cannot fault this establishment.

If you visit Carlisle you must try Davids Restaurant. The food is fantastic. It is more for couples or a small group of friends. Nice quiet and well decorated. Good service. Food is British/ European. Very elegant .

To be honest, we came here as we had been given a voucher as a gift. Having said that, we enjoyed our stay here. The food was excellent and plentiful, the wine was good, and both reasonably priced.
