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

We found the Bijou by accident and had lunch there. Excellent food served in a very pleasant atmosphere. I would highly recommend this place for lunchtimes. Reasonably priced menu with a good choice.

Had a meal out tonight with friends. The restaurant is reasonably priced, everything was lovely and staff were great. The steak was the best I have tasted for a while. I liked the herb topping which had a blue cheese crust. Will go back again.x
