Great meal out, lovely food

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

We had the three course mid week meal for £22.00 which is very good value for the quality of food and service. The starters were perfect especially my risotto with beef shin which was so tender. The main course of lamb was also great. For dessert my wife had the brownie and I had the lemon tart - both were... More

I took my partner to Bijou for our anniversary last month, and it was the most pleasant eating experience we've had in Carlisle. I booked in advance and we were sat at a nice little table for two away from the other patrons. The service was great, the food absolutely beautiful and also a great playlist music wise!

Very stylish. Have only been in for coffee and a scone, both of which were delicious. Service and price good. Lots of pleasant chatter as seems to be a good meeting place. Minor gripe- serviettes for coffee are too small.
