This is a must when visiting Carlisle. Plenty of parking. Food is of the highest quality and quantity. Warm and welcoming. This is somewhere that you must visit.

Visited on a Friday night it was busy but the staff were friendly and helpful. We had roast beef and it was absolutely beautiful. Puddings all looked amazing it was too hard to choose!!! The chocolate and cherry roulade was delicious.

There's a great choice and main courses have a selection of tasty vegetables. The fact that it's so busy testifies to the fact that it's loved by local people. The staff are so helpful and hardworking - brilliant!
