Popped in here for a lunch time meal and wasn't disappointed with the standard of food served up; didn't have to wait long once ordered. Interior décor is very nice and very clean.

I went to the Thin White Duke last week with my friends for a few drinks. It was the first time I had been out in Carlisle and having first gone to The Griffin just a little further up the road my hopes of finding a nice chilled pub were very very low. The Thin White Duke was a lovely... More

Good food - good choice and some specials too. Prices were reasonable. Good selection of drinks, cocktails and different beers. Love the décor, mixture of unique/retro furniture - lovely dinner by candlelight. Staff were pleasant also.

Excellent, food fantastic, service great, decor and layout great. Loved this place for lunch. Value for money, background music not over powering at lunch time, could have a conversation without the need to shout.

We visited for lunch on a windy and rainy Monday. We chose The Thin White Duke due to the good reviews on Tripadvisor and the selection of vegetarian options. We were seated immediately at a small round table in the window by a friendly member of staff. The pub is decorated in a 'tastefully quirky' style, with teacups containing candles... More

A nice experience. Didn't book just turned up. It was quiet but had a nice background buzz. Staff were friendly and not pushy. The food was well cooked and well presented with sensible servings - I didn't leave feeling like I was stuffed.

Called in without a reservation on a Wednesday night thinking it would be quiet after being recommended by friends. It was surprisingly busy but my wife and I were seated promptly by a friendly member of staff who took our drink order straight away, when they returned our food order was taken. Thus was a very pleasant experience, the mood... More
