Even if Carlisle wasn't a city bereft of decent bars to go to the Lane would stand out. In the centre of the historic core of Carlisle this stylish bar offers something different. With a fabulous interior, 4 individually styled rooms, and the best garden in Carlisle. It's chilled, with great staff, drinks and a soundtrack to boot!

It is such a nice place to go for a drink. The staff are always really friendly I always find myself at the bar chatting to them while i'm waiting for my drinks. The rooms are very chilled out and intimate, perfect to go for a drink with friends or on a date. The outside seating area is lovely, the... More

Went approximately half 9, on a Saturday with the girls for some cocktails! Wasn't heaving but lovely chilled atmosphere, unique gorgeous cocktails on offer, defiantly worth the little walk away from the main hustle and bustle of the centre to find it!!

We nearly walked by as the entrance is down a lane but we are glad we didn't. Really quirky and different. The bar man was excellent really knew his stuff, I ordered a glass of wine not realising they have a wide range of gin and tonics, unfortunately we did not have time to go back but if I am... More

Popped in a few months back whilst visiting family in Carlisle. Spotted the Absinthe fountain and dasher bottles through a window from the outside and this immediately made us thirsty for something stirred down and boozy. There was about 8 people in our party so we were told we could sit and have our drinks in 'Montys' upstairs, this little... More

Out with family & decided to take them to one of our favourite bars. It is beautiful inside & the new reading room/library is gorgeous. They were suitably impressed & will be back with their friends. Monty left a lasting impression & gave us lots of lovely kisses.

I was up visiting my father and friend from London and my friend suggested the Lane Bar as I had a small Dog with me! What a great find, the bar is beautifully interior designed and the owner of the bar could have not been more friendly! With or without the Dog I will make sure I visit when I... More

I loved this place! The staff were super friendly and very knowledgeable. They showed a total passion for the drinks and explained what went into making the cocktails. I had the Manzarita and my partner had The Long Lane Iced Tea, they were delicious. I wish I could have just gone through the entire menu! The whole vibe of the... More
