This is a good pub restaurant in Cark - good atmosphere would recommend booking in high season. Good local beers on offer and the food is good. Particularly enjoyed the mussels.

“Friday Night Flame Night!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

We have visited this pub before but only for a drink so we decided to try out, The Flame Night.
I have to say it was a great choice!!

It's got a choice of meals for the Friday Night special, including Steak, Mixed Grill, Chicken, Burgers and Tuna Steak. All comes with fresh salad and chips, all for £10 per person!!
The meals were lovely and the atmosphere nice and cosy!!

If you are nearby on a Friday evening be sure to go in and try this fantastic offer!!

“Very friendly pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

We stayed in Cark for a week with our dog, and were delighted that the Engine was very dog friendly. Each time we went in the landlady fussed our Collie and gave her biscuits. We only ate there once as unfortunately the second time we went in to eat it was a very quiet night and the kitchen had closed which we were disappointed about (although totally understood as it was very quiet) as the meal we had there earlier in the week was excellent. I went for sea bass, which was served with scallops and a langoustine and was beautifully presented and tasted just as good as it looked. Very nice pub - would definitely go back.
