We have eaten here many times and have only ever had one bad meal which was on a Sunday afternoon, there were hardly any staff in and the kitchen was undermanned with what appered to be with just one hungover chef. However, I'm happy to say this was an isolated and one off incident as every other time hasn't disappointed.... More

My one night stay at the Jolly Carter in July of this year was so comfortable and I felt so welcomed. I arrived from Shanghai and when I booked the room I confided to Nina that my arrival at my brother in law's party on the evening of July 7th was to be a surprise for everyone. Not only did... More

Modern bedroom with excellent shower room. Well furnished and equipped. Good value for money. Excellent breakfast and pub meals. Lovely relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Downside for some maybe that access to the bedrooms is via outside metal stairway.

We were in Bolton for a wedding and needed somewhere close to the venue to stay. This little diamond served our needs perfectly. Ok, so its not the Hilton, but the rooms are clean & fresh, towels are changed daily and the cooked breakfast was a thing of beauty which kept us going till well into the afternoon. The Landlady,...

My wife and I stayed here on the recommendation of some friends, who know the place well. WE WERE NOT DISAPPOINTED!! Our en suite room overlooked the main street and was well and tastefully furnished, complete with television. The pub itself was what can only be described as a typical country style pub. Nice brass and good beer. We had... More

I moved in to Little Lever two years ago and visited for a brief drink, but I didnt know about the restraunt area until I decided to take family out for a meal. It is brilliant. The food is homemade and the steak from the pie just melts in your mouth. Service was excellent and the manager (and owners daughter)... More

In the local area for a Christening at the one of the churches in Little Lever and decided to give the Jolly Carter a go after reading positive reviews on here. We were not disappointed and the B&B made a nice change from the Bolton Holiday Inn. Food in the pub was good and the owner was more than happy... More
