Just returned from a 2 night Gourmet break. Food, wine and service excellent as it always is here(special mention to the venison and the banana soufflé which are my new favourites). I have been visiting the Carlton for six years now and do not intend to stop!

Stayed at Carlton Riverside for one night, two couples. Very down to earth, as you would expect with Mary Ann Gilchrist, but wonderful dinner and very comfortable rooms. Alan and the staff were welcoming and friendly. The wine was generous and we felt spoilt. The only reason we have not given 5 points for excellence was the breakfast which was... More

We managed to get a last minute table at the Carlton Riverisde last night and I'm very glad we did! The food was absolutely fantastic. I can't find fault with any part of the meals my wife & chose. Very well presented, beautifully flavoursome and well cooked, what more can I say! The staff were friendly and accommodating, so thanks... More

Excellent welcome from Mary Ann and Alan, all staff were polite and efficient. The food was delicious including the breakfast - it is surprising that so many hotels are unable to cook a decent bacon and egg - but breakfast at The Carlton Riverside was cooked to perfection.

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
