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...

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

Having been a regular and very satisfied customer at this restaurant for many years I am saddened at the deterioration in the service and standard of food served since Andrew ( co-owner and maître d ) has left. I have always experienced excellent service and high quality food until my recent visit post Andrew when not only was the service... More

This is one of my husband and I's favourite restaurants in Carlisle. The staff are so friendly and welcoming, nothing is too much trouble and they were very obliging when I decided to have something different with my steak instead of the vegetables on the menu. The food we had was delicious, cooked to perfection and beautifully presented. low candle... More
