We popped in here on Saturday after shopping as we were parked nearby. It's one of the nicest bars I've been in in Carlisle, it's really cosy and the staff were really friendly. It's very well decorated and comfortable, it's a hidden gem and now that I've found it I'll definately be back.

Thank Sandra M

Out with family (adults) & decided to take them to one of our favourite bars. It is beautiful inside & the new reading room/library is gorgeous. They were suitably impressed & will be back with their friends. Monty left a lasting impression & gave us lots of lovely kisses.

Been here a couple of times with workmates. Lovely bar with a cosy feel and a beer garden that comes into its own in warm weather! Would recommend!

Been here a few times and it never disappoints. Just so different from everywhere else in the town. Most of the bar area is in the very old arch ceilinged cellar and for the smoker a great private garden seating area. Very clean and well kept. Drinks are great and well priced, with a great range of cocktails which are... More

This place is amazing, the decor is on point! For such a great cocktail venue it's really chilled out! I ordered a cocktail I had something made for my based on my likes and dislikes! Great service to offer bespoke cocktails!

With a lovely courtyard garden, off a quiet lane (Long Lane), and a smart bar downstairs stocked with lots of unusual goodies - the rare Noilly Prat Ambre, Ansbacher cognac - this caught my eye. The barstaff were very friendly and welcoming too, and clearly care about what they do.

I absolutely love this bar, I can't say enough good things about it. The decor is unique, intersecting and effortlessly cool and it surpasses any of the other bars in Carlisle with its amazing VIP area. Cameron is the best barman around and makes the best margaritas in the UK as well as tonnes of other cocktails that aren't sugary... More
