There were some choices with ** on which when built to a 3 course became an offer for about £25 including a... More

Arrived at the restaurant for a meal. We chose from the menu 2 meals for £12.95. Price does not do these meals justice. I would have expected to pay double the price, as the quality of the meals were first class. The starters were out of this world, but there again so was the main course. The staff were very... More

Having never had a meal in the Carlton, myself and a friend decided one day that we would. I was beyond impressed! Great choice, great value, lovely friendly staff and overall happiness with it! I wish I'd tried it sooner. I was beyond impressed and would highly recommend it to anyone in the area.

Staff are really nice and helpful. Food is very nice indeed and the service is excellent. The ambience overall is very pleasant and there is no café-type atmosphere. Would like the Gaelic coffee to be a bit less expensive.

Beautifully presented, freshly prepared cordon bleu style food but without the stingy portions. Very good value for money considering the quality.
