Food is really nice here and is well priced considering its a more stylish venue to attend. I had a burger and it was cooked perfect, juices still running from the burger. Friend had a steak I would say it was cooked about medium not medium rare but she had no complaints about it. All in all everyone enjoyed their... More

My husband and I ate here for my birthday. The food was delicious. My steak was over done and straight away I was given a large glass of wine to apologise and a perfectly cooked steak to follow. We will definitely be returning.

I go there every two weeks or so, and always switch between the burgers. They have lovely sauces that comes with them, a choice of different cheeses (for me the best part of it) and all in all great food. My girlfriend also loves going there because of the rest of the menu, good variety.

I chose the Thin White Duke to meet up with a friend who I hadn't seen for a while as she lives in Spain now so we wanted somewhere to have a good catch up and a nice meal. We were shown to a table next to speaker playing quite loud music so asked for another table and the very... More

I visited this lively bar on a Saturday when it was full of people busy enjoying the start of a night on the town. Given that the customers seemed to be mostly concentrating on the lager and cocktails I didn't expect what I got, which was a beautifully presented, tasty meal, at a very reasonable price, served by staff were...

Called on Carlisle race day. It was really busy as many of the restaurants were closed. The barman was really helpful and found us a table down stairs with a nice pint of real ale and several choices of gin. The menu wasn't special and they had sold out of the specials board hence only 4 stars. But what they... More

I had a Flat Iron Steak and didn't expect much for £9.95. Actually it was very good, cooked as I asked, and the chips were good, too, just enough for a satisfying lunch without feeling over-full. My wife had a veggy dish, which was also good. Nouvelle Cuisine rather than Stuff Your Face, which is good with me. The choice... More
