We stayed in the Oriental room which is lovely. Nice and spacious, warm - but not too warm. The view isn't much to write home about but I don't often stare out of hotel bedroom windows! Alan and Mary Ann are wonderful hosts and make you feel welcome and wanted. They are pleased to give you information on things to... More

Leta start with the truth, would i go there again, probably not, but that's a reflection on me rather than the Carlton, its not cheap, your talking around £8 a starter and average for £25 a main course, £17 house wine, so for your working class "boyyo" its an expensive night out. But it was a cut above in terms... More

We arrived on a very cold January evening at dusk and were immediately made to feel at home by Mary-Ann and Alan. Our room (#3) was beautifully warm with extremely attractive furniture, decor and soft furnishings. The bar had a very good range of drinks and the lounge was again very warm and cosy. We were the only residents for... More

Mary ann and Alan were increadible hosts, both warm and welcoming. The food and wine selected for us on our gourmet break was well thought out and extremely well executed, Mary Ann is a master of her trade and it was an evening I look forward to repeating in the future. Room 4 is compact, comfortable and has everything you... More

Just returned this morning from the cosy Carlton Riverside. My husband has a birthday in a couple of days and I wanted to treat him to a cosy, relaxing break with fab food, well the Carlton Riverside fitted all of the criteria. Mary Ann and Alan were smashing hosts, the food was all we could of hoped for and the... More

This hotel follows the french concept of a restaurant with rooms but the rooms are very comfortable. The welcome is amazing and the food and wine of the highest quality. Mary Ann is not a fan of nouvelle cuisine but the food is lovingly prepared. The pricing is very reasonable considering the quality of the food and the wine list... More

Back for a second time. What can I say but just excellent again. The other half had lamb and I had the venison. Both were cooked to perfection and were just excellent cuts of meat. We had a great time and our thanks to Mary-Ann, Alan and their team. Looking forward to being back here in Spring next year.

I have been an avid watcher of Great British Menu and totally snared by both Mary Ann and her cooking style. We booked an overnight stay with dinner as a birthday treat and were not disappointed. Alan was a superb host, both unhurried and interesting. Our meal cooked by Mary Ann was delicious with the best welsh lamb we have... More

It is rare to find a restaurant where the quality of food and service totally exceed ones expectations. The Carlton Riverside is that exception. Anne Marie and Alan go the extra mile to ensure that the menu, food and wines are superbly balanced and that the dining experience is a meal to remember for all of the best reasons. If... More

Mary Ann and Alan Gilchrist have forgotten more about great food than most people will ever even know! Stunning, perfectly executed four courses with the most beautiful wines to match. Not a pinch of micro-cress, a miniature vegetable or out of season Peruvian asparagus or the like in sight. No stupidly shaped crockery, food with popping candy, nitrous oxide based... More
