I went up town with my husband and we decided to have a lite lunch. There are many places to go but we decided to try The Thin White Duke, in Carlisle. The atmosphere was quite dark with differing table and chair variations but this was not the problem. We were given the menu and as we only wanted a lite lunch we found the options limited. There were main meals but thats not what we wanted. Then there were various "burgers" - I dont think so. We then perused the "lite bite" area of the menu and not having a great choice I opted for fish gourgons and my husband opted for mashed potatoes, mini slices of cumberland sausage with a relish. Now I know it said "lite bites" but my plate arrived with THREE gourgons and a small ramikin of tartare sauce. Thats it, nothing more - no tiny salad or even a lemon wedge - that was it. My husbands meal consisted of three small ramikins, one with mash (or Smash) the other with some tiny pieces of cumberland sausage which I suppose they may have said caramelised but I would say burnt and the other with a tiny spoonful of relish. When the waitress collected or emply plates (didnt take much to empty) she asked if everything was ok. I told her that it was the most disgusting lunch time meal we have ever had anywhere, and we do eat out a lot. I told her we would not be coming back and that I hoped she passed my comments to her manager. What an absolute diabolical rip off. Would I go back or go for an evening mean - not even if you paid me.
