Having had a good lunch for Mother's Day, we took my parents (aged mid eighties) there again for lunch on a Thursday. We were the only people in the restaurant and so were not happy that it took nearly an hour for our meals to be served. The service had been much better when the place was full to the... More

We were a party of 4 and our visit was influenced by previous comments on Trip Adviser. We were impressed on arrival by the decor and cosy atmosphere. We were seated for drinks and taken to our table when the first course was ready. While the menu was limited we found dishes we liked, and the food was good. Initially... More

This was a group booking with meals chosen in advance. Food was served hot, efficiently with no-one having to wait too long. The only negative was that the portions were rather small although the quality of the food was excellent.

We lunched here with 6 friends. It was a wet, cold Wednesday in February but we were surprised that we were the only customers. A shame because the food was very good. The staff were friendly and helpful. Worth a visit.

Three of us called in "on spec" for a business lunch. We were welcomed but warned we only had about 90 minutes before the dining room was reserved for a function. No problem, we each had a very acceptable main course followed by coffee and weren't made to feel pressed in any way. All three were from different companies and... More

By British standards in this area, Carriages is nice, but as a fine dining restaurant, it is just average. The food was good, not great. Service was good and our waitress, Katrina, was lovely. The wine list is pretty much non-existent and the 'bar' doesn't have a bar tender so cocktails are a risky option. It's not bad, but we'll... More

My Wife and I ate here whilst staying at the Alveston Hotel. The food was excellent! I had a beautiful tender steak and my wife opted for the vegetarian option. Both extremely happy and will return.

We had a delicious meal here, lovely canapés, tasty mushroom starter and cracking surf and turf - tender fillet steak cooked rare as requested with lovely crunchy chipped potatoes. We took advantage of a promotional deal, it would have been expensive otherwise. The restaurant was busy but the wine waiter and waitresses were all friendly and helpful. A memorable evening,...

I have reviewed this restaurant as part of the hotel review. The food is excellent. Their AA rosette awards since 2009 are very well deserved. The waiting staff friendly and knowledgeable. I would return here in a heartbeat.
