I took my girlfriend here for our anniversary, completely surprised her. The chef sat with me and went through the whole taster dish to find her all courses that she'd love. The food was incredible, cod was the best thing I've tasted in my life. The staff were hilarious we had a brilliant time. Would recommend to anybody

We went to the Carlton riverside for a 2 night mini break. The hotel is small but has a great atmosphere and the service was second to none. Luke the chef and partner in the business is exceptional and treated us to a 5 course taster menu which was probably the best food we have ever had. The rooms are...

My wife and I paid our fourth visit to the Carlton Riverside on Halloween weekend and were suprised to be greeted by Mystique! We were last to be seated for which Rosie (Mystique) apologised but it was fine as we were in no hurry and looking forward to a relaxing evening. The food and service were excellent and a couple...

We booked a second visit to this restaurant with rooms expecting a lovely weekend of food and wine within the peaceful location of mid Wales. On arrival Rosie (We heard that was her name as she did not introduce herself) arrived in slippers and started by saying the room that we had booked was mistakenly given to another couple. We...

Received a one night stay as a gift. We were a little apprehensive due to some of the previous reviews here on TripAdvisor. We were very warmly greeted on arrival by the young lady now running the place, and shown to our room. Yes the building is a little tired but the room was clean with a comfortable bed and...

We stayed for one night with friends at the Carlton Riverside on their Gourmet Break package. The food could not be faulted, neither could the wines that came with each course. We were sat at the window table which afforded great views over the river. Nothing was too much trouble - my husband has to follow a gluten free diet...
