This restaurant is styled on the interior of a posh train carriage, really unique and very well done. (except the toilets are lovely at Carriages, unlike British Rail!. The food was excellent, home made steak pie, very generous portion - I chose chips instead of potatoes, and the chips were yummy. Lovely fresh vegetables. If you are in the area,... More

What a surprise to find such a quirky, friendly and cosy restaurant inside an ordinary building. The woman who greeted us was friendly and seemed to do everything and did it really well. The food was nicely cooked and presented with something for everyone. It's well worth a visit, the drive is stunning and booking essential at the weekend.

I only write reviews if the experience is a good one, and although I do have some negative remarks about Carriages they are said only to encourage change for the better. The meet and greet was good and we were shown to our table immediately, drinks order taken and we perused the menu. The starters were presented well the Antipasti... More
