We had lunch at The Fryery after visiting Carlisle Castle. It was during the lunchtime rush and the place was packed but they quickly found a table for the 5 of us. I had the potato, cheese and onion pie, the kids enjoyed chicken and chips and my husband had the fish and chips. Everything was wonderful! The fish and chips were so good that my husband sacrificed half his portion to the children who now adore the dish. The chips were wonderful as well.

We ate upstairs, which was a little too warm. On a warm day the downstairs may be a better choice.
