Four adults and a 9 year old had an evening meal there. Service was good and attentive but not intrusive. Food was served promptly, very tasty and, where appropriate, piping hot.

My husband and I went last week for our anniversary, it was extremely busy so good job we had already booked a few weeks prior. We were shown to our table quickly, service was really good, our menu choices were taken, then we went into the kitchen to choose our meats. I choose rump steak (bad move) and my husband... More

Another visit to the Carrington Arms (see B&B page for details of overnight stay); this is an excellent steak restaurant where you choose the cut and size of steak after visiting the kitchen counter and talking to the chef to discuss cooking and sides available. (For more of an idea on the type of food available see my previous review).... More

I have been visiting the Carrington Arms for some time along with several colleagues, we have always been impressed with the evening meal and the service and this has been the main reason for our return every time. However the last couple of times we have stayed, the waiter that serves breakfast has been awful. There is no greeting, he... More

The Carrington Arms is a great place to visit for a special occasion, good menu and service. It is out of town but is worth the drive. Lovely steak and desserts.

We have eaten here a few times now and it is always excellent. The soup of the day was broccoli and Stilton and just superb, the steaks, locally sourced are great and you can choose what size you want, usually restaurant steaks are too big for me, so here the choice is mine and superb meat cooked to perfection. The... More

There was a steak display where you could chose the type of steak, the marinade, and the size. A delight to behold. Followed by a choice of ten different cheeses. A very enjoyable lunch (or dinner) and only 5 minutes from the M1.

We love steak but prefer to eat a small piece. At this restaurant you can actually see and choose the piece of steak you would like and exactly how you want it cooked. The steak was absolutely tender and delicious. You can choose your sides but you get one free and then have to pay extra for further sides so... More

We visited in December-a party of 8 during the week running up to Christmas. The restaurant was full and the atmosphere was good. We all ate from the Festive menu so had pre-ordered our meals. My food was delicious! I had the bubble & squeak starter-with a poached egg inner and it was cooked to perfection. My main course was... More

We chose this venue for our Christmas Meal due to the menu choice and we weren't disappointed. Right from our initial contact, the staff were helpful and professional. They even accommodated a number of changes to the numbers on the reservation and a late menu choice change. On the night itself, the staff were welcoming and the food was fantastic.... More
