We booked this place for a table of 15 for a leaving party! As there was so many of us we were asked to pre-order our food, all of our food arrived together and piping hot! We were seated down in the cellar which created such a lovely atmosphere! The waitresses were very attentive and we were never left looking... More

Me and my friends eat and drink in here often, its such a nice place. All the staff are friendly and if you're stuck on what to drink they even offer good suggestions. Food is always great, would definitely recommend and keep retuning

Enjoyed eating here when shopping in Carlisle, my partner had burger and I had a wrap which we both enjoyed, I love the decor and atmosphere. We sat downstairs in the cellar area, loved eating in this area with candles lit in tea cups. The only criticism was I didn't feel the menu was big enough, I struggled to find... More

I had a burger that was on the 'specials' menu and dearie me! It was absolutely delicious, no doubt the best burger I've ever had. The restaurant itself is very cosy, music is good and the service is excellent. If you ever find yourself in Carlisle I highly recommend the Thin White Duke

Stopped by for Sunday lunch, great selection of beers, Lovely interior with nice artwork on the walls. Food wasn't amazing but not bad for the price.

The Thin White Duke is owned by the same people who have The Gilded Lily. The interior has wooden floors and is more like a pub restaurant. The food was fine and the service the day we visited could have been better. Will not rush back.

We first tried this place a year or two ago and have been going every other month as a treat ever since. The food is beautiful, we do have our favourites but swap and change your way through the menu and you won't go wrong. If you book a table, you are generally seated downstairs and the atmosphere is better.
