This 'boutique bistro' was all it said on the website and more, delicious, home prepared, high end food in an intimate setting with great highly personalised service. The only trouble is it's location, it not being central Carlisle it may not get the traffic it deserves so please please support it! Oh and try and butternut squash and chickpea burger... More

I've been here on a number of occasions and everytime you get a perfect meal, at a good price, in anice little bistro, with the friendliest staff. Steak nights are well worth a visit, probably one of the best steaks I've had in this country, but the normal menu is always changing, it's a limited menu each night but don't... More

We'd been meaning to try steak night for a while and were not disappointed. We both ordered the specials as our starter, I had Cromer crab and husband had goats cheese soufflé. Absolutely delicious and plenty of it! We both had steak and chips and both had it rare and that's how it came, husband particularly enjoyed the grilled tomato(... More

This is the second time I have been, the first was last july and it was so tasty and great quality food. I was back last week with 14 friends and again steak night was unreal, every part of the meal was perfect I would highly recommend it to everyone.

We have eaten here on several occasions and have never been anything other than impressed with the quality of food, atmosphere and standard of service. On the strength of a superb meal from the Valentine's Special menu last year, we decided to repeat the experience this year and were not disappointed. The chef here certainly knows how to produce food... More

I was not a burger fan until I came to the first burger night. Now I am such a convert I persuaded friends to come too.

I have visited this Bistro several times, but the steak I had recently was tender, succulent and juicy, cooked to perfection and accompanied by delicious chips. A creme brulee will always win me over and this was no exception. The whole meal might have gone straight to the hips, but what the heck?? I.m looking forward to my next visit!

This was our first time we've been to Holme for a while. We went to one of the first Burger Nights. The quality of the food was top notch. (As is always is.) Really good value as well. Burger, Chips and a choice of a drink for only £10. The Chilli Fries were a hit with everyone. All the staff... More

Six of us visited Holme on wednesday night. We decide to try a feature night which happened to be burger night. As burger lovers we were not disappointed! The burgers were out of this world. We really enjoyed the food and evening great staff and atmosphere. We will definitely visit again.

I went on a Friday (steak night). It's a set menu, the starter was fish goujons, they tasted like they were bought in and probably frozen, cheap. The flat iron steak was very fatty and hard to cut with the steak knife. The chips tasted of oil and the sticky toffee pudding had a metallic taste. The service was good,... More
