Just got back from a trip to the Carrington Arms. I wouldn't call myself a "regular", my last visit was sometime in the 90's...long before Instragram, Twitter and every other form of Social Media ! My last time was a company dinner ( most likely with some overseas colleagues ). We'd recently relocated from London to Milton Keynes and at... More

This was my first visit to the Carrington Arms. I had heard so many good things about it over the years. This visit certainly didn't disappoint! Being able to go to the counter and choose the steak you want and tell the chef how you want it to be cooked was a real nice touch. I had the Sirloin (medium... More

Due to bad traffic on the M1 I arrived shortly after the time to stop serving in their restaurant. To be honest I didn't realise what time this would be and I should have checked anyway so I was prepared to have to go and find food elsewhere. When I enquired about the possibility of getting something to eat, nobody... More

Last visit here was 2002 so I knew what to expect. There is a main menu and a separate grill menu. Grill menu items are displayed in a refrigerator so you can select your own steaks, fish etc. The choice was very good and reasonably priced. Restaurant was quite busy when we visited. Kedgeree was a good choice. Would return... More

Booked a table for 4 and also had my 8 month old son with us. Food and service were absolutely spot on. A completely new experience to have a meat counter where you see your steak being cut to your choice. Very reasonable considering the quality of the food. Only criticism is that there is no baby change facility but... More

What a perfect place to stay. The pub is amazing and I'd say possibly the best steaks in the UK. Staff are great and pay attention to what you want.. choose your own meat for the steaks and cooked to perfection. Rooms decent size and clean. Love staying here.

Chose this restaurant as it has a good reputation for Steaks. We chose fillet steak one was average but edible ,one was very chewy and was replaced with a sirloin of average quality . Service was rushed and un professional. The restaurant was busy so obviously can deliver, but not for our party. Wont but be rushing back anytime soon.

I wouldn't normally choose a steak when eating out but having recently returned from the US, I thought I'd give it a go. I really like the fact they have a meat counter and that you can choose your type of steak and indeed the size. My 8oz ribeye was cooked as I like it and was beautiful. All meat... More

Recommended by a work colleague... Top steak, and you visit the butcher to cut your steak to your size, Cracking sides..my favorite Bacon Mac & Cheese. I opted for the cheese board with 10 different cheeses to choose from.... Returning very soon.

Just been here for lunch today with family. My burger main was fantastic and the scallops on the side were great too. The pudding though was outstanding! Everyone (including the kids) enjoyed their food. Whole atmosphere was pretty good and the place was clean and staff were very very friendly. I have heard the steaks are amazing so will have...
