The Reiver in Carlisle is well known among locals for its exciting range of live entertainment, fresh food, variety of real ales and not forgetting the welcoming and friendly staff.
Recently undergoing a complete refurbishment, The Reiver in Holmrook Road has been serving fresh food and real ales to its loyal customers since it reopened in 2015.
Formerly known as the Border Reiver, the newly decorated bar and restaurant offers ice cold draught, a variety of spirits and a fine selection of wines, along with a well thought out menu providing home cooked food on a daily basis. For the first time in many years, The Reiver now serves an array of real Cumbrian ales including ‘Broughton the Reiver’ and ‘Theakston Best Bitter.’
Michelle Grierson has been running the pub for the past six years. She said: “We are a family friendly local bar serving fabulous food in gorgeous surroundings. There is a lot on offer here at The Reiver, with darts, pool, quiz and bingo nights and family fun days. We have live bands, and discos as well as Sky TV.”
The last State Management pub to open, the Reiver now boasts a large open dining area, and provides the perfect setting for a family lunch, a drink with your mates or even just a quiet afternoon sitting in the sunshine with a pint.
Having been said to serve the best Cumberland sausage, as well a Sunday lunch that would put your mother’s to shame, the Reiver has received a number of well earned reviews from its bank of faithful regulars and continues to gain excellent recommendations from customers, old and new.
With its family friendly facilities, including a beer garden, sports TV and traditional pub games such as darts and pool, The Reiver is a safe haven for people of all ages. Serving everyone’s favourite pub classics including juicy burgers, traditional lasagne, locally sourced Cumberland sausage, and hand cut chips, as well as a kids menu to keep any fussy eater happy, The Reiver takes pride in their home cooked meals and efficient service.
Combining reasonably priced food and drink, a lively atmosphere, and its team of helpful staff, you’d be mad not to pay the Reiver a visit. Catering to all occasions and eventualities, it is the ideal location for a family meal, a night out or somewhere to just relax.
