We booked a two night break at the Carlton Riverside with a Buy a Gift voucher. We were looking to visit the Gigrin Farm Red Kite centre in Rhayader and after seeing the Carlton Riverside was only 35 minutes from there decided that would be a good choice. It was not until after we had booked that we saw the... More

Llanwrtyd Wells is a lovely little place - the smallest town in Britain in fact! We happened across it when we received a red letter day weekend break as a gift. On the list of all the places, we thought the Carlton Riverside looked the nicest, backed up by some excellent reviews. We weren't disappointed. The Carlton Riverside is a... More

Alan and Mary Gilchrist are fantastic hosts. We booked an overnight stay with evening meal and breakfast included after watching Mary on the Great British Menu earlier in the year. The food was just as good as we had hoped it would be (especially the Pea Mousse served with Carmarthen ham which was divine). The other highlight for me was... More

We had booked a table for 7.30 but arrived 45 mis early. No problem, we took a seat in the bar and ordered drinks. At about 7.15 we were given menus and ordered food and wine. We were later taken to the dining room and served hot home made rolls and butter. Totally unexpected and delicious. I had fillet steak... More

We recently returned to this fantastic restaurant with rooms tucked away in the heart of Wales. Having sampled Carlton Riverside's hospitality and Mary Ann's cooking several times before this time we put our taste buds in her hands and opted for a two night gourmet break accompanied by Alan's choices of perfectly matched wines. We were delighted. Not only were... More

We were given a voucher by our son for a weekend away and chose Carlton Riverside as we had read the reviews for the restaurant which sounded excellent. We were not disappointed, the breakfast was superb and our evening meal was beautifully cooked and served. The owners, Alan and Mary Ann compliment each other so well. Mary Ann obviously doesn't...

I was invited to visit with a friend who had been many times in the past, but not for some years, due to family circumstances. We were greeted by Mary Ann, who is most definitely a one-off, doesn't suffer fools gladly and is one of the most interesting people I have met in a long time! I had the Chapel... More
