We live in Scotland and can't pass Carlisle without calling in! Every choice we've made from the menu has been sublime - this is most definitely a true hidden, foodie heaven. The prices are manageable and the portions are plentiful!! The roast meats are hard to choose between but the beef is a winner in our book The desserts are... More

Firstly the portions are massive! Don't bother with a starter unless you have a serious appetite. The food is simple Sunday roast dinners using good quality produce. Prices are a slightly more than your chain pub crap, but at 8.30 for steak pie and the portion you get, its actually a bargain. The deserts looked great but we were too... More

Very good to deal with when organising & on arrival at meeting room. Laid out as request & good food / tea & coffee service. Entrance had just been redecorated & so had not been cleaned up fully & there was still some work going on so a few bangs with hammers etc but I assume this is the exception.... More

Not an picturesque setting in the middle of an industrial estate, however, there was a steady flow of people all night. And this was because of the value for money!! My party had roast beef, roast lamb and sweet and sour chicken. Each dish was cooked perfectly with really good portion size. The meats are their specialty, the beef and... More

Took our visitors here for Sunday lunch, had a short wait as restaurant was very busy. The meal was brilliant especially the beef. Our visitors were very impressed and said it was the best Sunday lunch they had had in a long time.

Been to the Auctioneer loads over the years! The roast dinners are lovely but could do with a bit more veg however the meat is to die for! Just melts in your mouth. I also tried the salmon which was a large portion with salad, potatoes and veg! Not badly priced. Puddings are all homemade and very filling!

Every time I visit family in Carlisle I have to come here! It's good old English food that tastes better than home made. Plenty on the plate, hot and fresh. The lamb was beautiful.

Table tops nice & clean, as was cutlery when brought for our meal. Two of us had beef and one had turkey - the relatives being... More

Enjoyed a lovely carvery at the Auctioneer on the outskirts of Carlisle - off junction 43 and into Rosehill industrial estate - there is parking available. There is building work being done on the building at the moment - but the restaurant is still open for business using the side door closest to the restaurant. We enjoyed a lovely 3... More
