Thin White Duke
Still retaining many of the old features from its monastic days including a tunnel that once ran under the city to the Cathedral, the Thin White Duke has became one of Carlisle's favoured eating and drinking establishments.
An old pub converted into a restaurant, still has the rustic feel., but food is better than pub food!
A stylish Restaurant/Bar in the centre of Carlisle. They have an excellent chef and an extensive drinks menu from cocktails to craft beers. There's always good music on (hence the name!) and it gets busy on weekends.
“The Shabby Scholar manages to merge seamlessly from relaxing coffee stop to bustling lunch venue, stylish restaurant to stylish cocktail bar with all staff offering a casual but attentive service.”
“Don’t miss Carlisle Cathedral dating from 1133 started by King Henry I, featuring the largest window in the Flowing Gothic style in England”
“Carlisle castle is a must see attraction for visitors to Carlisle. It was built during the reign of William II of England (William Rufus) who was the son of William the Conquerer who invaded England in 1066.”
“Worth a visit, exhibits a lot of Carlisle's Roman history, also has a cafe and close to the shops for shopping ”
