Pubs and Bars in Carlisle
Along with being known as one of the most historically significant cities in the UK, Carlisle is today recognised as north Cumbria’s central hub for all things commercial, cultural and industrial. From heritage sites, such as Carlisle Castle to being a haven for shopping, the area has a healthy variety of things to do. So, whether your trip is simply an overnight stay at a business hotel or a week-long break with the family, the city is a great destination choice for all kinds of travellers!
Carlisle has witnessed a rapid expansion in drinking establishments over the last years.

In a bar or pub, playing music can encourage customers to stay longer, spend more and visit more often.
Quarter Lounge is a casual, informal, Grill Style dining with an emphasis on local, seasonal and sustainable food. Our Idea for Quarter Lounge was to bring the gourmet burger and grill scene to Carlisle using local, fresh and in house made products to your table.
The Golden Fleece is Michelin-Star rated, and in one visit, you will understand why. Enjoy hearty country classics like slow-braised lamb shoulder, pheasant schnitzel, and steak pie with gravy. For a delightfully sweet end to your meal, indulge in a Poor Knights of Carlisle apple pudding, sticky toffee pudding, or a burnt Cambridge cream (similar to a crème brûlée). The atmosphere of the restaurant is entirely quaint and inviting.

The restaurant and bar take advantage of this cool historic building, with exposed brick walls, antique lighting, and plenty of character. Try something from the bar’s playful cocktail menu, like a rhubarb cosmo or a spiced pear mojito. Along with drinks, the kitchen offers both small bites for grazing, plus burgers...
