Having recently moved into Cumbria I was looking for a restaurant for a special occasion. I looked on Tripadvisor and plumped for David's. Good decision as it is a small intimate restaurant with excellent food and friendly and helpful staff.

I've visited this restaurant several times in the last year, and each time the foods fantastic. I've been twice for an evening meal and once for lunch. The service is always friendly & prompt, and the food is always well cooked and fresh. I honestly can't fault David's, plan to go (at least) four times a year, to sample every... More

Food is really exceptional and friendly service. Street parking with disc nearby. Lunch is a short shift so be prompt. Beef is the best

This is how much we enjoyed our first visit- we were lucky enough to get the last booking for the following evening! The 3 of us relished every course which was cooked to perfection exactly how we wanted it. Chris and Emily and their staff pamper all their customers and are lovely people. They even accommodate off menu requests. Chris... More

The two of us enjoyed a midweek menu. Exceptional food at an un-exceptional cost. The Duck was melt in your mouth delicate and delicious. All served in a relaxed but very professional way with Emily guiding a brand new waitress to the high standards she demands. We have been going for at least 15 years and the original owners, the"David's"... More

We just wanted to thank Chris, Emily and their staff for the most amazing evening, the food was as fantastic as ever, the service went like clock-work given that there were 22 of us plus your guests in the other room. We look forward to the Christmas bookings we have made. With very best wishes - Jack and Sue

Visited David's for lunch whilst on a family trip out on the Settle/Carlisle railway. Mum is badly allergic to gluten and came across David's through a good review from another coeliac so thought would give it a go. Phoned David's to book and they couldn't have been more helpful which was a good start. On arrival the restaurant was extremely... More

We visited David's as a party of 6 adults on a Saturday night to celebrate a special birthday. Our table was ready for us when we arrived & we were well looked after with menus & drinks. The beer my husband originally ordered from the drinks menu was not available however he chose another & it was fine so I... More

My first time here and I wish I had found it earlier, what a lovely two course lunch, in a most comfortable setting. I had the Cajun Chicken salad to start, very fresh and beautifully seasoned, followed by the Lemon Soul. Perhaps the fish was marginally over cooked, but the accompanying veg certainly wasnt, all in all it was very... More

Visited Davids for the second time last Saturday and was not disappointed. The meal was superb and the service faultless. The restaurant is small but provides an intimacy without appearing crowded. There was a minor problem with the booking and a delay in getting seated but this was of little consequence with attentive staff and an excellent meal. Would not... More
