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.

More about Quarter Lounge, Carlisle

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

We decided to book at the Quarter lounge for a meal that everyone who was with us would enjoy, it was a family get together with ages ranging from 18 to 73 and when asked about what everone would like it was agreed a qaulity burger was the way to go, nobody was dissapointed, infact my mother said it was the best burger she had ever had and great value now that coming from a 73 year old yorkshire woman is one recommendation to be taken seriously.
