Carlisle's best scran was created by cufcaussiebranch
I'm heading home next week and looking forward to sampling Carlisle's finest foods.

I'm interested in restaurants, pub grub, Fish and chips, pies and even the best layby bacon butty vans if they even still exist.

Will be taking in the Grimsby and Bradford games.

Thanks & UTBs

Think the Carlisle area’s sadly lacking in good scran spots at the minute, only places I would recommend are Brampton Golf Club and Stanwix Tandoori.

There are plenty of good places for food in Carlisle at the moment.

That's MRF scratching around on groupon for the next few months for the weekender in Exeter.

The bloke takes more coupons with him than he does twenty pound notes.

Oh, i am mate but I was talking about those times when you just can't be arsed to cook and its easier to go out you're much more likely to do if you're only gonna spend 16, not 60 quid.

We.re very lucky and although Accy itself is a desert we have the culinary heaven that is the Ribble Valley on our doorstep and some great places around the North of Manchester

Forgot Dutch Uncle - I’ll give you that pal! Thin White Duke quite good aswell.

Stanwix Tandoori better than Viceroy. Spider & Fly very hit and miss. David’s overpriced and average. Amato’s, tenner for 50p worth of pasta! Coco Mill charge a fiver more for the same steak pie and chips as Brampton GC and its somehow nowhere near as nice!

According to last night's thread! :)

Back when I was the SOUL's Doris we dined like kings.

One weekend he flew us out to the south of France where I had the most exquisite chateaubriand. The bistro was a Michelin starred of course. We got talking with the Sous and he was all up for coming back to SOUL's Aspatria fiefdom to be his personal chef, but then I mistook a Bordeaux for a Burgundy and he took the hump.

Things went downhill for us romantically not long after that evening...

I don't think there are any Harvesters in Cumbria are there? Plenty everywhere else though.

Do Fontana's on London Road still do battered sausage, chips, melted cheese and gravy?

When I sneak a quick visit in, always pop by Adriano's.

I probably go out less than anyone on here but for what it's worth,

Francos, Guildhall, for Italian can't be beaten.

Best Cumberland sausage, Mullholands at Great Orton.

In the summer went for a bar meal at the pub in Cumwhinton, Lowther Arms I think, good traditional pub grub.

How expensive is Nandos - was there last night.

It is quite nice, but you don't get a lot for what you pay.

At least we’re not Stockport

When I'm back in the k-lyl, we nip to the Foxborough at the far end of Cecil Street for a special occasion. It seems over time to have morphed from it's original intentions as an authentic barbecue grill to a more 3 course restaurant effort focusing on steak. Still nice though. Not cheap though either.

In response to the original request - keep driving through to Edinburgh. Carlisle is a gastronomic vacuum as been highlighted to great effect on here.

I remember back in the early 80s when the Sharrow Bay was widely considered to be the best place to eat in Cumbria.

A great aunt of mine and her husband were delighted to get the chance to eat there as guests of her husband's boss. However, unaccustomed to the richness of the food and all the cream in the sauces my aunt became queasy and threw up after only a couple of courses.

A waiter duly came over with a tablet and glass of water and said "don't worry madam, it happens a lot".

Fine dining indeed.

I could be wrong but I’m pretty sure he’s specifically asking for places around the Carlisle area, it might be a bit of an ask to travel to Edinburgh when your peckish.
