We went to the Carre Arms Hotel Restaurant last week and we were not disappointed. The food was lovely and the staff were friendly and attentive. The restaurant and bar area were set up to be COVID safe and everything ran smoothly. All in all...a great meal out. We will certainly return.More

Can't thank the Carre Arms enough for the fantastic wedding reception they organised for our son and his wife! The room looked beautiful and the food was amazing. As stated in other reviews about the day, NOTHING was too much trouble! They really did pull...off the perfect reception!More

Just want to say thank you for a wonderful lunch again. I am quite an anxious eater when I eat out on the best days. However the changes the restaurant have made during COVID have been fantastic I feel very safe and comfortable. The staff...are all wonderful and nothing is too much trouble. The food was delicious as always. My partner and I look forward to our next lunch! Thank you xMore

Big shout out to the Carre Arms for an amazing wedding reception for our daughter and her husband. Despite very short notice and small numbers, maximum effort was put in to make the day perfect. The room looked beautiful with lots of personal touches. The...food was superb and the staff were amazing. All in all it could not have been better and after all the months of uncertainty and anxiety Lisa and her team brought calm and reassurance at all times and gave us a day to remember and treasure forever. From the bottom of my heart thank you!More

I cannot praise enough for their handling of my daughters wedding reception. Nothing was too much bother. The reception room looked gorgeous with the decorations they supplied. The food? Well lets just say nobody went hungry! The portions were huge and delicious. When the cables...from our laptop to projector failed the owners brought their own personal TV down from their apartment to allow us to watch video messages from the family and friends who could no longer attend due to Covid. In short the owners of the hotel managed to ensure my daughter and her husband experienced their dream wedding after a time of thinking it would never take place.More

We visited at lunch time, the food was of a good standard, the service was faultless and the atmosphere was wonderful, well suited to those of us who enjoy a slightly more traditional setting. Covid precautions were apparent and welcome. The downsides, we chose to...park at the back of the Hotel, sadly this didn't give the best impression. It wasn't dirty, far from it, it simply felt tired, first impressions count and from this angle they didn't do justice to the slightly old fashioned calm tranquility to be found inside. The service and the food were of a good quality with prices appropriate to the establishment, the exception being the soft drinks. We were charged £8.00 for 3 mixer sized soft drinks, the Coke came from the a very small glass bottles, the soda water was even smaller. For the price we would have expected soft drinks at least double the size, it tarnished what was otherwise a great experience, one that we will consider when choosing somewhere eat, the cost isn't the issue, it's the principle. A small but important point when other establishments are offering draught soft drinks at far lower prices and we are all being encouraged to drink less alcohol.More

Popped in for a drink and then decided to eat there too. We both had the lasagne and, although it had an ok flavour it certainly didn't resemble a conventional lasagne - no obvious tomato sauce, pasta layers or bechamel! As we walked home we...discussed the meal and concluded - maybe we had been served cottage pie in error!More

I honestly cannot big this place up enough. The owners went out of their way to make our stay special. We stayed for 2 nights and felt no need to eat anywhere else. The food was varied, catered for my fiance's vegan diet and, more...than anything else, tasted fabulous. We were taken on a tour of the very interesting building and helped us out with finding things to see in the local area. Thanks again for helping this surprise proposal weekend away turn into a weekend to remember and the gorgeously styled room was lovely. Can't wait to book our engagement party and wedding here very soon. Much love to all the staff.More
