About Penny Blue

Our beautiful bar & restaurant is housed within Carlisle’s historic old Post Office building. Sympathetically restored with many original features giving wonderful character and atmosphere. The Penny Blue building contains the famous stained glass window from the old Lonsdale cinema which has been restored and can be seen in our more private area.
Penny Blue will be serving a modern tapas & grill menu from our open kitchen, using local ingredients where possible and 100% Cumbrian beef. We cater for gluten free, vegetarian and vegan options. Our drinks list includes original and classic cocktails, an extensive spirit menu, gin bar and a handpicked wine list.

Were tentative about venturing back out following a year spent in isolation, but was absolutely worth it. A cool pint, a fantastic burger, all provided with as much distance and consideration for safety as possible. Will definitely be coming back, excited to see what The Penny Blue can do when not so restricted with what they can offer.

Service was fantastic. Food is overpriced considering you are eating out of cardboard boxes.

Didn’t bother eating as after spending £500 to stay at the hotel was told we would have to walk out of the hotel to enter the restaurant. We just kept walking to the last zebra to spend our money there. Before the hotel responds with some CoVId nonsense; was good to see so many staff using the door that Bill paying customers couldn’t! 😂

The Penny Blue has managed to change to a true C19 safe place whilst still maintaining the atmosphere and its high food quality. The staff are friendly and the prices are reasonable.

Lovely meal. Really pleasant friendly staff. Just a shame we can’t linger a bit longer but Covid restrictions don’t permit. Will definitely be back.

Bit disappointed by the portion size of one dish, the fish and chips, we have had this before and it seemed that the price had gone up but the amount was a lot less. Shame.

The food was absolutely delicious. The service was of a very high standard. Staff were attentive, friendly and really helpful making sure we were comfortable and able to enjoy our lunch. The restaurant was very tastefully and elegantly decorated for the festive season. We spent a wonderful couple of hours yesterday and hope it won’t be too long before we return. Thank you to everyone- it wouldn’t be so good without the right staff.
