The set menu changes daily (or at least it was different on the two evenings I was there). It's not cheap, but every dish was 'quality' and very tasty. There was a good balance between meat, fish and vegetarian dishes and every dish sounded interesting - it was tricky to select! The service was attentive, wines by the glass were... More

My partner has some very strict dietary requirements and the team at Carriages were absolutely exceptional in meeting his needs and enabling us to have a meal out. I emailed the team to see if they'd be able to accommodate our needs and they phoned me back almost instantly. We discussed what he could and couldn't eat and our meal... More

Residents have three menus to choose from and the desserts are fab. Specials dinners or a lighter meal when wanted.

Breakfast was fantastic with just about everything you could need. Evening meals were very well prepared and presented. I had duck one eveing which was just perfect, the meal we had on New Year's Eve was really good with so much that we couldn't even manage the truffles afterwards.

We enjoyed an excellent Sunday lunch at Carriages, Alveston House Hotel for my son's birthday. There was a good choice of food which was all very tasty and cooked to perfection. We especially enjoyed the sticky toffee pudding, highly recommended. The wine list was also very good and did not disappoint. We will be back!

My wife and I went to Carriages for our 'personal & quiet' 30 years anniversary and found the staff very friendly and attentive. There was a fair delay between starter and main - apparently for the meat to 'rest', but the fillet steak was delicious when it arrived! There was a large office 'do' of about 10 whose raucousness slightly... More
