Our brasserie-style restaurant offers fine food in an informal atmosphere – perfect after a long day of meetings, sightseeing in Carlisle, or walking in the nearby Solway Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Unwind on our circular benches, which are great for small groups and just right for creating a light, convivial atmosphere.
The service is always attentive and professional. Our chef and kitchen brigade use the very best fresh, local and seasonal ingredients to serve up a huge range of delicious options. Ask for the Artisan Bread Board, served with pesto, olive oil and balsamic. Choose one of our many superb wines, and take your time deciding which of the mouth-watering dishes it will be. Perhaps pressed ham hock and parsley terrine, followed by lightly spiced cod loin baked in banana leaf.
We look forward to seeing you in the brasserie. It’s popular with locals looking for somewhere to eat in Carlisle too – always a good sign.
Light bites menu
If you’re in a hurry, there’s an equally varied ‘light bites’ menu served in the wine bar, which includes sandwiches, wraps and burgers.
We serve a very special afternoon tea at the Hallmark Hotel Carlisle, and pre-booking is essential for this popular ritual. We suggest you work up an appetite for this treat of finger sandwiches, tray bakes, and home made plain and fruit scones served with strawberry jam and freshly whipped cream – and pots of tea, of course.
