“In a word : orgasmic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

The food here is some of the most tastiest and delicious I have ever eaten. I can't recommend the Royal Outpost enough! The ambience is perfect, the decor lovely and the staff friendly and helpful. Every bite is a taste sensation, the delicate flavours burst in your mouth. I would go so far as to say it's orgasmic....mmmmmmmm....If I wasn't already spoken for I'd probably want to marry the chef! ;-)

“Patchy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

First revisit for a while and standards seem to have slipped. Some great food, some iffy (a very chewy cut of beef in one curry, for example), and portions so small that we ended up ordering extra dishes mid-meal. Service was similarly hit and miss, with a mix of clearly experienced waiting staff and at least one that had absolutely no idea how to wait tables or treat customers; we were kept waiting for a number of things while there were staff standing feet away and several mistakes were made. One error can be written off as being of no consequence but repetition becomes irritating. The sauces were decent enough but nothing to write home about. There's better places to eat in Carlisle for this cost.

A perfect combination of really great food, (probably the best I've had in Carlisle), lovely surroundings and friendly polite staff.
I can highly recommend the Royal Outpost to anyone!
