Reviewed By Nicole B - Newark-on-Trent, United Kingdom

‘David’s’ was the perfect choice for a romantic meal on our honeymoon. Reasonably priced 3 course midweek menu provided us with a taste explosion. The smoked mackerel pate was absolutely delicious, and the beef was so tender and cooked to absolute perfection. The lemon tart was the perfect end to a perfect dinner.

The Wheatsheaf Inn Restaurant

Think of the Wheatsheaf as a place to relax. For people looking for comfort to socialise where it is as much about drinking as eating think "The Wheatsheaf Inn".The Wheatsheaf is about value for money, your need to escape, to relax and enjoy, somewhere where the food is traditional and comforting, all homemade on site using nothing but fresh local produce. Enjoy the company of family and friends. Watch the latest sporting event on the large screens. It more than just a pub it is a time - honoured village pub at the heart of the local community

Reviewed By Audrey F

This traditional pub / restaurant is situated just off the M6 in the small village of Wetheral near Carlisle. Visited recently for the first time for Mother's Day lunch and we were delighted. Food was prepared using fresh local produce and there was an excellent choice on the menu. Only criticism was that we were all so full after the starters and mains that we had no room for desserts!! Another visit beckons so that we can try out desserts. Good choice of real ales as well. Thoroughly recommend

Reviewed By Anna M - Carlisle, United Kingdom

Visited The Royal Outpost, on an off chance, on a busy Saturday evening, as we hadn't booked and we were not disappointed! The service was second to none, nothing was too much trouble. I had the chicken dumplings followed by chicken and prawn Pad Thai, both of which were very tasty and very well presented. There was a great selection of cocktails too. Definitely recommend this place, it's tucked away upstairs from the Cumberland.

Visited for Mother's Day as a party of 7 including children. Very friendly welcome from the staff and very attentive during our meal. Food was lovely, very well cooked and we were all very pleased with our meals. All mums were given a complementary small bottle of wine or champagne which was a lovely touch.

Siam Thai Restaurant

Dao and Nong would like to welcome you to Siam Thai Restaurant. Recently opened in October 2012. Serving authentic Thai food cooked with ingredients used in Thailand but not as spicy - unless you request otherwise. Our chefs are from Thailand but also have experience of cooking in British Thai restaurants. Expect the strong flavours that you would not normally find outside Thailand or even in most Thai tourist restaurants within Thailand. If you prefer milder dishes then there are options such as sweet and sour or chicken with cashew nuts. We are open for lunch from 11:30am and evening meals through to 11pm (closed Mondays) with takeaways and a well stocked bar. Special occasions catered for upto 50 people.

A real gem; VERY hard to find handy parking space nearby (otherwise I think it would be a lot busier); fantastic service by sweet, delightful Thai girl who 'blesses' you with her gestures with each course! Beautiful arrangement on the plate; gold-thread tablecloths, excellent wine quality & value. Excellent Thai menu, well explained. They also do take-aways!
