Anytime we have a special occasion or guests to entertain we come to The Auctioneer, the portions and quality of food are second to none and the atmosphere is always lovey. The staff are amazing and the menu is extensive and very much value for money when looking at portion sizes.

The best Sunday lunch in Carlisle, the food and portion size is next to none. The location and sitting area is slightly dated but the food makes up for it. Great family place and suitable for young family's with children.

Called in to view the function room facilities and stayed for lunch. Had beef roast dinner which was excellent as other reviews state - Lovely tasting, extremely tender and melts in the mouth. Reasonably priced, great tasting staple food. No complaints from me on this one.
