The historic city of Carlisle is at the crossroads of some of Britain’s most iconic visitor attractions – with the Lake District to the south and Hadrian’s Wall to the north. It’s a lovely place to stop off when crossing the border into Scotland. Or perhaps as a place to relax after some of the many outdoor activities the region has to offer.
The elegant Hallmark Hotel Carlisle is right at the heart of the city – with the Lanes Shopping Centre, Carlisle Cathedral, Tullie House Museum and riverside parks all within walking distance.
Our brasserie-style restaurant offers fine food in an informal atmosphere – perfect after a long day of meetings, sightseeing in Carlisle, or walking in the nearby Solway Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Unwind on our circular benches, which are great for small groups and just right for creating a light, convivial atmosphere.
The service is always attentive and professional. Our chef and kitchen brigade use the very best fresh, local and seasonal ingredients to serve up a huge range of delicious options. Ask for the Artisan Bread Board, served with pesto, olive oil and balsamic. Choose one of our many superb wines, and take your time deciding which of the mouth-watering dishes it will be. Perhaps pressed ham hock and parsley terrine, followed by lightly spiced cod loin baked in banana leaf.
We look forward to seeing you in the brasserie. It’s popular with locals looking for somewhere to eat in Carlisle too – always a good sign.
