Visited this restaurant with friends and what a pleasant surprise. We have stayed in Carlisle for 8 years and never noticed this place, lucky our friend googled a steakhouse in Carlisle and we went on to enjoy our best steak ever, the presentation with the big heavy plate with hot stone was amazing, you could sear your steak further if...

I've been to this place a few times before but I can sum it up in my former housemates words "That was the best steak I've had" and I can only echo those words. The lady waiting on could not have been more patient as this was a new experience for my mate having the steak still being cooked in... More

Time for a steak during our visit to Carlisle. Quick look through what is available, Pompeii pricked our interest, small, specialises in steak and does it on a stone..sorted. Booke a table and after a hard day shopping walked to the restaurant, it's just inside the inner ring road, easy to find, but very unassuming. Basic interior, very calm, very... More

A wonderful evening for my son's 40th birthday spent experiencing the delicious locally sourced food. On booking I made them aware that one of our party required gluten free, so they made sure a seperate fryer was prepared for the evening. Even better was the lovely choice of gluten free desserts to finish off a fabulous meal. Lovely, friendly staff.... More

Wonderful food, had a dry aged ribeye and it was amazing! My other half is a coeliac and I called ahead and they were very accommodating and had a decent selection. Highly recommended!

Had a 630pm booking and it was empty. Waitress was lovely, asked about allergies as I am wheat intolerant. Went downhill from there, in fact the words were to the effect of 'if you'd told us on booking' - not my problem. So we could have chips, not thrice cooked as they had 2 friers but both were prone to... More

This is a lovely friendly restaurant the steaks are excellent and from local source. Cooking your own steak on hot slates ensures steak is cooked exactly as you like it.
