We've been to this restaurant occasionally when in Carlisle. It is a good restaurant, nicely appointed and comfortable. The food is good and well prepared and good presentation. That said, I ordered chowder which was absolutely delightful, served in a unusual soup bowl with a high lipped edge on one side. The chowder was well garnished with various fish and... More

Room 34 as it is now called is great for lunch with a really good imaginative menu. Bit sad the same menu is produced for dinner.

Bijou is a stunning venue with excellent food. Now called 34, it is still the same owners and the same excellent service. Very good at catering for the gluten free diet. A must if you are visiting Carlisle. Mid market price point.

Now called No. 34, I visited with a group of ladies. The food order was mixed, some having sandwiches, some having sausage and mash, some having fish and chips. The sandwiches were good, but the so called 'angel' fries were some of the most disappointing excuses for chips I have ever tried. Thinly grated potatoes deep fried, resembling soggy chipsticks....

This is now known as No. 34 having had a great makeover, and the result is very pleasing. The atmosphere is great and the food superb, both in presentation and cuisine. We had fish, which can so easily be spoiled by overcooking, but both our courses were perfect, and we particularly liked the lightness of the ravioli starter. The only... More

This seems a well known restaurant in Carlisle, central and busy. Service was attentive, and the food above average. Lives up to its billing on Tripadvisor - thanks

This was not our first visit and won't be our last. Arranged a special treat for hubby and wow did we enjoy. Yummy food in relaxed atmosphere just as we like. We have had an 'ok' experience here at our time before, but we didn't let that put us off going again and pleased we didn't. It isn't cheap, but... More
