Popped in on a very wintry night to find the place almost empty. Which was great as it is generally packed. Very atmospheric, a shabby chic kind of vibe and lots of candles. I had a Crispy Beef Salad, which was good although the chef was a little heavy handed with the dark soy sauce. Partner had the Beer Battered... More

We called in on Sunday evening and the place was very busy, got a table no problem and ordered 2 roast beef and it was extremely good. It's also good value for money! We will definitely be back soon.

We were passing through Carlisle as part of a tour and we were recommended The Thin White Duke by a local. Amazing food, great service and relaxed atmosphere. We were seated downstairs and it was very cosy. Only wish I didn't live on the other side of the world so I could go back!

I had chicken and chorizo burger with bbc sauce and saffron Mayo, my wife had Turkey and cranberry sandwich, both served with chunky chips. We also had a very nice bottle of wine. No complaints at all, it was excellent.

Definitely the best place to eat in carlisle! The food here is always gorgeous, the burgers and the fried halloumi are a personal favourite of mine. Always an amazing atmosphere and great value for money considering the high quality of food and the very reasonable prices! The duke is always my go to restaurant.

Finally visited a yuppie bar by entering this place. On the (what I'm reliably informed) trendy Devenshire Street. When we first arrived at lunchtime it was fairly quiet but soon became very busy with trendy people ordering drinks and food. Among all the pretentious people there is a nice laid back feel, although upon entering the bathroom I could have... More
