The Cardan

Been here before, nothing special, just a nice atmosphere and excellent food, also opposite the main train station. Would go again, and recommend to anyone else

Once again I am amazed at the standard of food as good as any 4star restaurant. The staff are always friendly and provide excellent service and a midweek discount applied. Highly recommended.

I have been to the Cardan numerous times and it never fails to disappoint. 3 courses and a glass of wine for £20 is a deal hard to beat. Beautiful scallop starter, my pork and fennel sausage ragu was packed full of flavour and a smooth creamy potted chocolate dessert. Friendly and personal service throughout the meal makes you feel...

Ate here recently with friends home on holiday ... Thought it would be typical pub grub but no .... The choice on the menu was excellent and more like fine dining than pub grub ... The food was delicious and good sized portions ... Would recommend to anyone and will definitely be going back

Had drinks in the bar before dinner - received a warm welcome and the bar was very comfortable. We then had a lovely meal and the service was excellent. Our only gripe is the toilets could do with updating - they are grubby compared to the bar & restaurant.

After being pushed to visit The Cardan for months by my daughter and her husband, we joined them last Sunday for a late lunch. So glad we did - the choices were wide ranging with traditional roast beef and Yorkshire puds to spicy pork and for an extra supplement ribeye steaks, you can have two courses with a drink, or...

Staff member (Micheala) seated us and took our order. My wife had pan fried salmon on a bed of mash. She was well pleased. I had BBQ ribs with fries, my meal was most... More
