We visited Davids in May to celebrate my birthday (4 of us). The whole evening was a great success. I started by having king scallops with a curried cauliflower puree, fritter and micro coriander, for which there was a £2 supplement. This was followed by a main course of chargrilled marinated swordfish steak, crispy noodles and oriental salad. I finished... More

Came for 50th dinner party and couldn't have picked a more fabulous restaurant. The food was stunning and they did everything and above for us. They even baked us a cake (on request). Top class food and a big thumbs up for David's. We'll be back again when we pass through Carlisle!!!

My wife and I had lovely 2 course lunch & bottle of wine. Requested and received the window seat. Staff were very attentive & efficient. Even had a celebrity guest- Stephen Fry on his way to Glasgow!!! Still our favourite restaurant for quality food & service.

The food here is fantastic, however the price is not justified. My wife and I each had 2 courses with a bill almost £100.00. Also you have to order 2 courses per person including a main, otherwise you will be charged a 'supplement'.

We've never been to David's before so we didn't know what to expect, arrived at the venue and stood ten minutes in the vestibule waiting to be taken to our table. When we sat down an American couple who were sitting near to us complained about the sun in their eyes so without so much as a by your leave... More

Warm welcome, attractive traditional dining room with modern touches. Varied and inspirational menu. Attentive service, decent wine list, wonderful food attractively presented. Gluten free requirement easily catered for by separate menu which was virtually identical to the main one. Good value.
