We haven't been to David's in over a year as it tends to be the sort of place we keep for a special treat or occasion, The food was just as fabulous (if not more so) as I remember last time. Their weekday menu is fantastic value for two or three courses. I'm struggling to decide which course was my... More

I organised a lunch for 20 people here as part of my special birthday celebration. The staff were very friendly and easy to deal with, handling all my queries beforehand and fine tuning the lunch with no problems. The food was simply brilliant! Service crisp, efficient, friendly and each and every one of my guests was completely satisfied with their... More

Food was good apart from the Hake which wasn't nice, I would recommend they put liqueur coffees on the menu instead of offering to make one when I asked for a coffee and Rum. Also if people have a table booked make sure someone is there to greet them.

We enjoyed a well cooked three course meal for six of us to celebrate a birthday. Food was excellent the service less so as on a Saturday evening when a major competitor - Gallo Rosso - had recently closed and the staff, although pleasant and helpful, seemed somewhat overwhelmed by the level of business. Despite this we had an enjoyable... More

We visited on a Friday lunchtime to celebrate our wedding anniversary. My husband was disappointed as he wanted the venison which is only served in the evening but we both had fillet steak which was delicious. The atmosphere was nice and the service excellent. The food was really good value and we shared a bottle of wine which was very... More

Visited on Saturday lunchtime. Davids was full, clients being a mix of ages. Once again the greeting was warm and welcoming. The whole experience was excellent. My wife and I, it was an anniversary celebration, enjoyed the two course fixed price lunch. The food was superb and the service was also faultless. Not the cheapest Resteraunt in town, but the...

my boyfriend and I headed out for a meal on a Friday night in Carlisle with no idea where we would end up, we wanted somewhere special as we don't get out together very often. After a drink at The Andalusian we headed a few doors down to David's. First impressions were great, lovely atmosphere and please by waitress met... More

I've enjoyed a beautiful cheese soufflé at Sharrow Bay and thought this couldn't be beaten but David's soufflé was every bit as good. This was followed by an excellent fillet of Lakeland beef cooked to perfection. Slightly disappointed in the brandy snap dessert which, to me, tasted burnt but overall this was a lovely lunch with great service in nice... More
