We have eaten here many times and have only ever had one bad meal which was on a Sunday afternoon, there were hardly any staff in and the kitchen was undermanned with what appered to be with just one hungover chef. However, I'm happy to say this was an isolated and one off incident as every other time hasn't disappointed....

My one night stay at the Jolly Carter in July of this year was so comfortable and I felt so welcomed. I arrived from Shanghai and when I booked the room I confided to Nina that my arrival at my brother in law's party on the evening of July 7th was to be a surprise for everyone. Not only did...

Modern bedroom with excellent shower room. Well furnished and equipped. Good value for money. Excellent breakfast and pub meals. Lovely relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Downside for some maybe that access to the bedrooms is via outside metal stairway.

Ok, so its not the Hilton, but the rooms are clean & fresh, towels are changed daily and the cooked breakfast was a thing of beauty which kept us going till well into the afternoon. The Landlady,...

My wife and I stayed here on the recommendation of some friends, who know the place well. WE WERE NOT DISAPPOINTED!! Our en suite room overlooked the main street and was well and tastefully furnished, complete with television. The pub itself was what can only be described as a typical country style pub. Nice brass and good beer. We had...

In the local area for a Christening at the one of the churches in Little Lever and decided to give the Jolly Carter a go after reading positive reviews on here. We were not disappointed and the B&B made a nice change from the Bolton Holiday Inn. Food in the pub was good and the owner was more than happy...

There was a warm and friendly welcome, the room was very clean and well appointed. Meals in the restaurant were a high standard and sensibly priced. As a regular visitor to the area I have stayed in a number of hotels, the Jolly Carter is head and shoulders above the rest I have experienced in the price range. If they...
