The Shabby Scholar
Ranked #5 of 23 Nightlife in Carlisle
Attraction details
Reviewed 30 May 2016

We were looking forward to going to the Shabby Scholar for the first time but we were so disappointed. No atmosphere, indifferent staff and tasteless food. I had the noodles which were meant to include a Chilli Butter - there was no evidence of this or any kind of seasoning. Waste of money, definitely won't be back.

The style of the restaurant and the choice of beer and cocktails is lovely. The food though is just ok.....novelty over taste and quality. The nachos are fantastic...which is why I would recommend for somewhere to go for a few bites before a night out rather than a fancy meal.

Great place to enjoy a drink or two. We sometimes head to the shabby scholar for a few drinks and have always had a great time, great staff and great cocktail, you won't be disappointed.

If you want great service .. Fantastic freshly made cocktails, great atmosphere.. This is the place .. Only downside but this maybe the reason it's so good it's on the small size but it's bigger for it .
