Came for lunch today. We had the two course lunch which was excellent value at £16.95 I had the house salad with ham,gigs& mozzarella followed by chicken both courses were freshly prepared and delicious. Staff very friendly and attentive. This is by far one of the best restaurants in Carlisle,consistently good in all aspects.

The meal was perfect and the wine went well with that lovely minted lamb. I do agree veg should not be over cooked but blanched is a bit short and hard . Apart from that detail every thing was well done . W' ll be back with pleasure.

A repeat visit for a senior family member's birthday. The food on offer was varied and attractive. It was cooked and presented to a very high standard. The ambience was good and the staff attention about right.

Thank Ron P
