Nice food but service a bit slow - we were left nursing our pre dinner drinks for over 30 mins and wouldn't have minded a top up!

Just came back from an overnight stay at the Carlton Riverside and had a great weekend. The dinner was superb. I had the pea mouse and ham, followed by venison and finishing with sticky toffee pudding, and my wife had the soup, risotto and chocolate mouse. It's certainly one of the best meals we've had. Our room was great and... More

I can not believe the reviews on trip advisor on this restaurant.Our experience was a massif dis appointment.We had the so called gourmet break.We thought it was more like a sunday lunch. Starter pea mousse followed by rump of lamb which was totally overcooked served with a few vegetables.Absolutely nothing gourmet about it.I must not forget to mention our third... More

Booked for dinner at The Carlton Riverside whilst staying nearby and what a wonderful meal we enjoyed. Alan greeted us heartily and we sat in the lounge perusing the menu and wine list. Once our order was taken, we continued to enjoy sitting in the comfy sofas until we were shown through to the restaurant when our starters were ready.... More

Fantastic food, and the sticky toffee pudding is quite outstanding. The service is also exceptional, the only thing that I thought let this place down is a lack of atmosphere in the dining room, perhaps some gentle background music wouldn't go amiss. Having said that, it would not stop me eating here again.

My wife and enjoyed a wonderful meal at carlton riverside . This should be a real destination restaurant for those visiting wales . We live fairly locally but hadn't discovered it until very recently. The food is fantastic : a limited range but cooked brilliantly and presented beautifully with ideal portion size ensuring we both had all three courses. Great... More

Wow! What a fantastic place! We had a fantastic stay and everything was lovely. Dinner with matched wines the highlight of our 'gourmet break'. Very very good value and food of fantastic standard. Lots of care taken over everything. Not a bad word to say about it! Mary Ann also gave us a great tip on how to finish our... More

We stayed at Carlton Riverside on 27 June for 2 nights to celebrate our anniversary. Our stay was made by the hospitality of Mary-Ann and Alan and by the fantastic food. We went for the set menu and it was brilliant - the wine was matched with food perfectly. The courses complimented each other and potion size was just right.... More

Having seen Mary Ann Gilchrist on the 'Great British Menu' over the past two years and having a mid Wales break planned I booked into the Carlton Riverside Restaurant knowing that It would probably be memorable. From the moment that Mary Ann booked me in when I arrived on my Ducati, I knew I was in a friendly place. This... More
