Well appointed restaurant with rooms. Quietly located in centre of the smallest town in Britain.
Our restaurant is acknowledged by ALL the major independent food guides to be one of the top 10% in Britain. However, don't take our word for it! Here is what other people have written about us:
"Oustanding Menu" Gilli Davies, food writer and TV presenter.
"If she set up in a cave halfway up a Welsh hillside the path to her kitchen would soon be worn" The AA Restaurant Guide 1999.
"Your food beats France" Ian and Janet Penney, France.
"Wonderful food and welcome" Stephen Bull, Chef and Restaurateur, London.
"The great thing about the cooking here is that it doesn't stand still" The AA Restaurant Guide
"Exceptionally good" The Which Hotel Guide 2000
"Far and away the best food of our trip. We wished we had stayed longer" The Good Hotel Guide 2000
"What we ate was very well done, helped along by Alan Gilchrist's invariable good humour and quiet professionalism. Wines have been chosen for their quality and individualism" Good Food Guide 2000

Carlton Riverside has well furnished comfortable bedrooms, all with ensuite bathrooms, TV, DVD/CD players, radio/alarm clocks, tea/coffee etc, plus large towels and good quality complimentary toiletries.
We do not, however, provide trouser presses, room service, 'free' sherry, fruit, chocolates etc, sweeping views or extensive grounds - and so you are not asked to pay for them! We DO provide quality, comfort and some of the very best eating you will find anywhere.
The Bridge Room looks directly over the river Irfon and the old stone bridge in the town centre, and across the river to the town green.
The Oriental Room is a large superior bedroom with a sitting area, but without any view worth talking about! This room is capable of accommodating a child (Z-bed) if required.
