About The Pompeii Steakhouse

Pompeii Steakhouse is unlike any other in Carlisle. You may be asking yourself, why the name Pompeii? That’s because this Abbey Street restaurant cooks their steak on volcanic stones. Thankfully, it’s safe eating at The Pompeii Steakhouse, and it’s a whole lot less dangerous than scaling Vesuvius. The steaks and the other menu items here are legendary – this steakhouse utilises Lakeland Beef, seasonal produce and artisanal local products in their offerings. In addition to steaks, The Pompeii Steakhouse offers seafood, salads and desserts to complement your food. Head to the historic quarter in the centre of town for an amazing meal at this local favourite, which is the only restaurant in Carlisle with a view of the Castle, which perfectly tops off what is sure to be a wonderful dining experience.

Absolutely fabulous, great atmosphere, good wine, amazing food and very friendly staff. What a great experience cooking your own steak over a hot stone. First class cuts of meat, all cuts to cater for every steak requirement. Best Steak House in Carlisle by far. We'll definitely be back soon for a follow up visit.
