About Quarter Lounge

This is a very special spot for beef lovers, and it’s a head and shoulders above any burger place in Carlisle’s town centre. Exclusively employing beef brisket from producers within a 30-mile radius of their restaurant at Treasury Court, Quarter Lounge mince their beef patties fresh every day, grill them to a perfect medium and offer them up in a range of irresistible incarnations, from an elegant chorizo creation to a zingy sloppy joe and slightly sweet bourbon and maple syrup version – not to mention their superb sandwiches, like pulled pork or hot smoked salmon.

Further Information

There is a lot more going on at Quarter Lounge than just burgers. To start with, it’s not some roadside American diner joint, but rather a suave wine bar where great cocktails and rare vintages are as popular as the food. There are also plenty of vegetarian meals (the mushroom, hash brown, goats cheese and rocket in a soft brioche bun is popular with carnivores, too), lighter options and delicious desserts. Tucked down Treasury Court, just off Fisher Street, Quarter Lounge is a top spot to kick back and stay a while in Carlisle’s fantastically leisurely, pedestrianised city centre.

Quarter Lounge’s menu is in sway to the seasons, as any good restaurant’s menu should be, so you’ll find it changing throughout the year. This city centre’s grazing plates are a good option if you’re taking a break from wandering Carlisle’s Lanes shopping precinct or have come down from a sightseeing tour of the castle and want a simple bite to eat – mini Cumberland sausages with a honey mustard glaze, haggis bon bons from just over the border, served with a whisky-infused mayo. Similarly, Quarter Lounge’s sandwiches are quick and gourmet options – we love the maple bacon, avocado, lettuce and tomato brioche roll and the prawn and crayfish sub sandwich with Thousand Islands dressing.

The visit was for a family lunch for my grandaughter, celebrating her 18th birthday, without her mum - my daughter - who had recently died. The food was nice, good-sized portions, the coffee was great and the staff helpful, but none really bothered about the occasion - even though a couple of the staff had known my daughter.. Coffee could have been 'topped up' as the cups are on the small side. Wheelchair access was disgraceful. Heavy furniture had to be moved before I could even get in, and an accessible loo may be handy - though unhygienic - to keep high chairs in, but renders it unusable for those of us it is intended for; it says that the staff don't think we matter. I was obliged to drive to Sainsbury's to use their lavatory. I am so disgusted I will not be returning.. Lady Norris

Good menu with some lovely choices. All of us asked for steak medium but got well done. Staff very friendly but didn't come over enough to check for drinks etc so had to keep going to the bar and asking. Not what you expect in a restaurant. Once food served we never seen the waitress again

Very nice surroundings and Pleasant smiling staff. I had the cod burger and skinny fries was lovely washed down with a decent bottle of merlot. My friend had flat iron steak which she enjoyed £20 each so resizable vfm. We will go back.

Nice food, lovely cocktails and good staff attentive but not over the top. Pleasant surroundings and décor, not too crowded and we liked the wall art with the words relating to Carlisle.

Food was good but they said they hadn't updated reservations on their systems, so we had to eat at a counter. Also, they didn't bring the starter I ordered - they said my sons starter was to share, even though it was a completely different dish.

Unfortunately my vegetables were covered in cheap olive oil so did not taste very nice and my daughters burger was not cooked. There is a difference between pink and raw despite the waiter trying to tell us it was cooked. But they did remove the cost of her burger from our bill.
