Great welcome from the team. Owners Chris and Emily greeted us personally and remembered it was our anniversary as we had our silver there last year. Food was amazing and was no trouble when I asked for a cheese souffle for my sweet as well as starter. Lovely surroundings very warm and friendly. Can not praise them all enough. Thank you guys see you soon.

Interesting menu, - our meals were well presented and tasted as good as they looked. Decent wine list at realistic prices. Good value overall and recommended as a lunch venue in Carlisle (there is much competition though).
