My friend booked here as I'd never been before and I wanted to try it. I wasn't disappointed, there was a lovely atmosphere and the staff were really friendly and helpful. The food is amazing we both thoroughly enjoyed it. I'd highly recommend booking in advance as it's extremely popular.

I had the sticky ribs for a main which again were really well cooked and delicious. My wife had their now famous flat iron... More

Our shopping trips to Carlisle aren't complete without a burger here!!!!! Good menu choices. Food is excellent and portions aren't oversized like some pubs. Staff are brilliant too.

Ate here with work colleagues after having a minor op in my mouth a week before. I had to eat soft foods only. Menu was extremely tempting with plenty choices I'd have loved normally. When I explained to staff they couldn't have been more helpful. Great food, reasonable prices & will definitely go again soon.

Often pop in for a pint or two and also enjoy a good meal. Excellent food and a good menu to choose from. Great for a cosy meal and great for a night out.

Been to the thin White Duke several tmes with different groups and have always had great food. If you get there early enough to get a seat on sunday, their sunday lunch is great, tasty and excellent value. Great drinks from the bar, great atmosphere...if only they had a bit of space for late night dancing it would be perfect!
