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

We chose Carriages on the strength of previous reviews. We were not disappointed. Booking over the phone was simple with far more than the usual mumbled request for a number. We were asked if we had any special dietary requirements and if it was a special anniversary. We arrived and had a lovely warm welcome. We sat in the conservatory... More

At the end of the call I was offered the opportunity to purchase vouchers at a 50% discount for use during Jan/Feb. I took up this offer and myself and wife duly booked. When we arrived we were greeted at... More

Carriages is rightly acknowledged as a gem. It is a small but friendly restaurant some 10 miles north of Bristol near Thornbury which excels at a well thought out popular menu of quality and ample portion. Staff are attentive but not intrusive, welcoming and caring without being obtrusive. Our meals were of a good standard, well presented and exactly as... More

A party of nine from our office chose to use Carriages Restaurant this year based on reviews. We were not disappointed. From the initial contact to make enquires, to the booking/meal selection and payment everything was perfect. Sometimes there is an expectation that party lunches such as this the food can be disappointing and dry. Wow, what a surprise. Each... More

We enjoyed a 3 course meal as part of a party we attended last Saturday. The meal we had was traditional type food done really well. We highly enjoyed all of the food we had during our stay at the hotel and would recommend to anyone. You definitely don't need to consider leaving the hotel for food while you're staying... More

I went with my wife on her birthday for Afternoon Tea. We've never done this before and didn't know what to expect. We were met by extremely friendly staff and enjoyed a very peaceful hour or so over many cups of tea and some tasty goodies. The menu said Finger sandwiches, cake selection and home-made scones with jam and clotted... More

We visited the Carriages Restaurant as a belated birthday treat as we both have birthdays in the same month. The service polite but not intrusive and makes sure you are well looked after. Good selection of food choices, the soup starter was in a 'proper size' soup bowl - delicious!! The roasts on offer were beef and turkey, lovely roast... More
