Visited early on a Thursday evening. Prompt and efficient service both at the bar and by a friendly waitress. Food was fresh and tasty. Drinks were replenished quickly. Decent value overall

Look, the food is great. It really is. But 50 minutes is a long time to wait for two Sunday lunches and a burger. To be fair, the only loser was the restaurant, since they lost £15 worth of puddings because we ran out of time. Similarly the only person adversely affected by the blonde waitress' awful attitude was her,... More

The surroundings and the food have that modern but rustic theme...Very helpful and friendly staff served us a nice meal even though it was a busy midweek lunchtime. Prices were about right, especially for a town centre establishment.

Food was great as always, only reason not given 5 stars is because we had to wait a while to be asked if we wanted more drinks. Very nice though, would recommend!

Eat here regularly, always great choices and a variety of specials. Never been disappointed. Good choice of imported beers and usually cask ale available. One of our favourite eating places in Carlisle.

We went here for our wedding anniversary last year and really enjoyed the occasion. The decor was eclectic, ranging from exposed brickwork to low sofas and a mixture of table types which created a relaxed atmosphere. Service is was very good and the choices on the menu were plentiful and at a reasonable price. Lots of options for vegetarians and... More

One of the nicer bars in Carlisle for the older clientele. Food consistently good. Occasionally live bands and the legendary vinyl nights. Well worth a visit on a night out in Carlisle.

I visited here last night, Friday 10th March with friends and have eaten here on many occasions. Literally I have never ever been disappointed with the Thin White Duke. The staff are brilliant, friendly and efficient. I always have the flat iron steak - it's £10 and is an absolute treat - so so tasty and always cooked to perfection.... More
