I went to the Indiagate more out of desparation than anything. My stay on a Monday night, and the 200 seater restaurant was almost deserted. I was seated by the window, no doubt to try to create the illusion the place was busy. There were 6 other people in the restaurant at the time I ate. The cost was fine for what was offered, however I suspect that the low number of patrons was a reflection of the quality as well as the day of the week. The variety was disappointing, some of it was inedible, the chips were usual cheap offering served in such venues and looked like they had come from a school earlier in the day. The rice was dry and horrible. The meat was of poor quality. The whole affair was tired and much of it was cool if not cold. The thousand folded napkins for imaginary patrons was impressive though somewhat of a waste of manpower. I reluctantly ordered a Kingfisher beer which I normally find to be very good and found it to be flat and although I could have eaten whatever I wanted I ate one plateful only where I would usually have had several visits to try the whole range.I did not insult my stomach with the stale looking desserts. The music was excellent and proved to be the highlight of my visit, I would buy this on CD. I only drank a quarter of the beer, and feeling bloated and disappointed I paid and left. I am a weekly visitor to Carlisle and will not be returning. By the way the large crack in the front window needs attention as this is a health and safety issue. The greeter was doing his best but was the only person in the building with a smile.
