Description: The Carlton Restaurant has been under new management since its opening on 3rd July 2013. Owned and run by former chef and owner of the popular Corner's Restaurant on Chalybeate Street (who have also welcomed famous Welsh celebrities in the past such as Tom Jones and Cerys Matthews from Catatonia), Toni and her partner, Gaffari, would like to welcome everyone! The Carlton Restaurant is centrally located in the main town centre of Aberystwyth and boasts an elevated position (above Superdrug) overlooking the main street. Locally-sourced and fresh ingredients and home-cooked with great care and attention to customers' health and well-being are at the forefront of The Carlton's aims. Customers can enjoy delicious and healthy drinks knowing that every beverage consumed helps to support producers in developing countries. Diners with a sweet-tooth can also try Toni's locally-famous home-made cakes and various desserts - her Lemon Meringue is a particular favourite amongst customers! The Carlton Restaurant also caters for specialised dining so customers with food allergies and intolerances can also enjoy The Carlton's food without worrying - simply mention your requirements to the staff. The Carlton Restaurant is also a popular venue for groups. Large groups (10+) are welcome to exclusively book The Carlton Restaurant on Thursday, Friday or Saturday nights. With customers' choices and satisfaction in mind, Toni and Gaff can also custom-make menus. A large selection of wines, beers and cocktails are also available (either during the day or in the evening!).

We visited today and enjoyed a superb three course lunch for less than £20 per head including drinks and tip. I was particularly impressed with the gluten free options. We were well looked after and had some useful assistance with menu options. I'd love to come back........

This time however, I visited with 5 other family members and waited for a long time stood by the door to get a seat, but... More

We arrived in Aberystwyth just after 5 p.m. and 3 other little bistros on the way were already closed. We were told that The Carlton Restaurant above the chemist will be open. My partner had a honey roasted ham in parsley sauce and I had a roast beetroot and Welsh cheese quiche. Both dishes were an absolute treat! Mine must... More
