My husband and I went here for our anniversary meal. It was disappointing. The restaurant really needs a refurb throughout. No one seemed to be in charge, in fact it was like a group of teenagers had been given a restaurant to play with. The food was fine but service poor. Had to ask for everything from our order taken...

Going in was like going back in time about 20years. It had the decor of a 1980's hotel restaurant, and the cutlery was the 'bead' style as you'd expect back then! The music was a strange choice for an Italian restaurant... They were playing 'Hurts' which may be the waiting staffs choice, but not suitable at all! The waiter was... More

I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough. I have been here countless times over the last 4 or 5 years and the standard has always been Excellent. It doesn't matter whether you are going for a special occasion or just for a happy hour meal during the day, the standard doesn't dip one bit. The menu is great but I... More

I couldn't work out if this restaurant was good or not based on previous mixed reviews, so decided to find out for myself. I pre-booked an alcove table for a romantic meal for two on my girlfriend's birthday. Alcove table duly delivered. Starters - we both chose the garlic mushrooms with bacon. The meal, including the accompanying garlic bread, were... More

My fiancée and I visited la pergola for a meal tonight. We were looking forward to it as we had read some very good reviews. When we arrived we were met by very friendly front of house staff and shown to our table. I ordered the mozzarella with tomato sauce and my fiancée ordered mushrooms in a bacon and cream... More

We recently came for a meal here and we're very disappointed. It was literally the worst meal I've had in Carlisle. Three of our four courses were overwhelmingly salty and one was so greasy, it was inedible. The food came out so quickly that there was no way it was fresh, not that too fast is usually a thing to...

We had booked a table to celebrate our 21st Wedding Anniversary expecting a quiet romantic occasion only to find a 21st birthday party next to us with off menu items being ordered. Fortunately Manager David and his side-kick were up to the challenge, and bless our fellow eaters we got a piece of birthday cake. A most excellent time was... More
