Fancied a change from pubs surrounding Carlisle so decided to give the Stoneybeck a try when my foodie parents were visiting, especially after the good reviews on here. We were not disappointed! Staff were very friendly and welcoming and the building is great. The tables are spaced out a lot more than other pubs/restaurants so it feels much more intimate and private.
We had the burger with pulled pork x 2 (great fun presentation), fish with hollandaise (clean plate) and beetroot and goats cheese risotto (rather huge but delicious with the parsnip crisps and beet leaves on top). Food was so good we even stretched to puss, all of which were yummy. One small suggestion, we had no side plates, so had to butter and eat bread off of our place mats, would make things perfect if these were there.
Well definitely be returning for a special meal in the future!
