Looooong wait for good food!

I've been dining in Carriages and ordering take out from it for over 15 years. The food is great, huge portions, reasonably priced, the pizzas are amazing! All freshly made. The only problem is the wait! If you're dining in you will easily wait between 45 mins to an hour for your food to arrive. I... read more

Went here with my girlfriend for our anniversary. Having eaten here repeatedly in the past i was excited to see the new bar area. The decoration of the restaurant is completely unique using railway seats and windows with painted scenery, I like it. Menu is fairly comprehensive good selection of mains and pizza's. Decent selection of drinks too and fairly... More

Always remembered this place being lovely - memorable for the pizza crust. Got a delivery but it was terrible. Firstly a 45 min delivery on a Wednesday and secondly it was burnt both on top and even worse on the underside. Tasted nasty. Wrote a complaint on their Facebook page and they didn't even have the decency to acknowledge it... More

How on earth can places to eat in larne with a handful of reviews have a higher rating than carriages with the amount of excellent/very good reviews it has? Without doubt a false position and totally unfair! I have said it many times before and will say it again-great place to eat with great staff- go there!!!!!

Lovely friendly staff welcomed us in. We were fairly late going in, but was found a table & nothing was too much trouble! The restaurant is set out like carriages in a train. Nice feel to it. The food was really good & plenty to choose from! We went twice as it was the oyster festival on our second night!... More

Going on an extended Northern Ireland tour in September 2013, we spent some time in Larne, one of the home locations of some Irish ancestors. We were quite hungry when arriving there and traveling around the town, so we investigated some of the local restaurants. The offerings were sparse and it was raining, so we opted for something close by... More

Delicious meal with a friendly welcome and good craic. Meal comes on your plate with extra on a side plate so that you can have as much or as little as you wish. You aren't rushed, even if you sit til closing time! Will be visiting again often
