Where to eat and drink when visiting Carlisle
Despite its quintessentially English feel, Carlisle has recently acquired a new range of international restaurants, broadening the availability of food for those who visit this pretty destination. Alexandros Greek Restaurant and Deli is a classic example. This family-run joint serves up excellent food and on certain nights you can be charmed by traditional Greek music.
Another dining hotspot is The Golden Fleece. This Michelin-starred eatery serves a range of classic dishes with a modern twist. Think slow-cooked roast lamb shoulder and steak pie and you're on the right lines. The atmosphere here is also superb. If you're looking for some excellent low-key tapas then The Shabby Scholar is just the ticket. The nachos with pulled pork and the deep-fried Brie cheese balls are simply divine!
No British town is complete without a good fish and chip shop. Luckily Carlisle has plenty. The Fryery, Warwick Fish and Chips and Fontana are always busy with locals tucking into this tasty British treat with lashing of salt and vinegar.
