We ate here on the 16.07.2014 after my graduation and the place had been recommended so we went! I must state now that the food was excellent and could not be faulted! So well done to the chefs! However the service was possibly the worst I've ever experienced!! Unfortunately I didn't take names but the blonde girl that dealt with... More

Ate here a couple of days ago and disappointed would not cover it. Firstly we arrived without making a reservation and once the staff heard that we hadn't, they were rude with us from minute one, especially the tall lady with blonde hair who really didn't seem to care about her job or about us as customers. The food we... More

I ate here recently I enjoyed the burger and the fact that it was cooked medium quite impressed me. the chips were not good very undercooked and the menu is very limited and quite pricey but the service was faultless

Lovely bar with bare brick walls and funky decor. Cocktails are sooo good and well made (for those who prefer real cocktails not cheap spirits topped with fruit juices) Food is excellent and a good variety for all appetities and tastes. Will definatley return and would reccomend to anyone :)

Been here several times,are at various places in Carlisle and this is without a doubt the best food. The quality of the meat in the burgers is top class. The chips are incredible and the garlic mayo is the best I've ever tasted! Fantastic food and even though the waiting time is rather long it's worth it for the quality... More

Lovely quirky surroundings: large sofas, wingback chairs, old record deck used as a table, candles in teacups, exposed brickwork. Lovely menu and delicious food. Most of the staff are a credit to the place-helpful and pleasant however the only staff issue we had was with a more senior female member who was quite rude to our party. Shame as this... More

Had a lovely meal here. The menu has some interesting different choices. I was with friends who were vegan and vegetarian and was a little stumped of where to go in Carlisle for something different - this ticked the box! I had a delicious burger and they were happy with lots of choice options for them. Really nice, shame it's... More

We visited for an anniversary meal and could not fault the food or the service. We were given a lovely table in the window and looked after extremely well. My steak, and I am fussy about steak, was cooked to perfection and nicely seasoned. My wife chose from the specials menu and was delighted with her choice. All in all... More

I've been here a few times now and I just love everything about it.The atmosphere is allways excellent as is the food.They have a great menu and the food is allways perfect.The only thing I don't really like is if it's to busy you get a table downstairs where I don't think the atmosphere is as good.Will be going back...
