We booked the Foxborough on a early Thursday teatime, we had read the reviews and so had high expectations- and oh boy they did not disappoint! We were welcomed into a cosy basement warm with candlelight and a nicely stocked fairy-lit bar at the back....More

The food and service in this restaurant was superb. Could not fault it in anyway. The shin beef is to dye for. All I can say is amazing

You can never go wrong at Foxborough’s... whatever you choose from the menu it’s always so tasty! I can highly recommend the French Dip though. Staff are great, great music and atmosphere. Thank you for being in Carlisle!

We had a very good time at Foxborough. Highly recommended! However, don't order the cauliflower lollipop, it's a rip off!

Best Full English brunch I've ever had. Bacon chop, 3 sausages, perfectly cooked eggs and mushrooms, crispy hash potatoes and sourdough toast. My partner had the breakfast hash served with hollandaise and it was also amazing. Close to train station so no excuse not to...More

Decided to visit based on other Tripadviser reviews and weren’t disappointed. We had a really lovely meal - very tasty and moist chicken escalope for me with some heritage tomatoes and my husband enjoyed beef shin. Both generous portions which unfortunately left us too full...More

A day out in Carlisle, & not picnic weather, so we looked for a joint that would serve us a good light lunch & largely on the basis of reviews on this site we found it. The £10 deal here (1 dish from an interesting...More

The car park behind the Halston on Warwick Rd (A69) is the nearest spot to reliably find a space. The Foxborough is 3 mins walk. You've then got the option of a quick walk round the corner to some of Carlisle 's best bars as... More
