took ages to get served due to people in front all wanting complicated cocktails. expensive and such loud music you couldn't have a conversation without shouting

this beautiful old building has been preserved and restored for the city by tracey and barnaby. the decor and furniture are quirky and comfortable and staff are helpful, generous and welcoming. they have a terrific chef who regularly changes the tapas menu but if you want a bigger portion the main meals are very good value.

Came here for my birthday with my friend for Tapas, we came into the bar and were greeted by the very friendly staff :). One gave me a few painful high fives and a hug for my birthday! Had an amazing meal my friend hasn't been before and she was very impressed! A few lovely cocktails :) and a lot of laughs with the staff! Overall great venue with a brilliant atmosphere.

when visiting Carlisle with my partner we where recommended the Andalusian by friends. when arriving we first noticed that the building its self was lovely and the inertia décor was stunning and in keeping with the bars original features with wallpaper and pictures on the walls that reflected the bars name, nice touch there. when arriving we were greeted by the friendly bar man and waitresses that made us feel really welcome. cocktails were to die for with a great variety of all sorts of flavours. however we struggled to get a table as it was so busy, but the staff very kindly were able to fit us in and made us feel well look after. after a short wait for the food we where pleasantly surprised by the filling tapes dishes that were cooked to perfection. only regret we had was we couldn't fit pudding in. had a lovely time thanks to the friendly staff and the general atmosphere.
