Welcome to Carter & Fitch. We look forward to serving you!
Pizzeria - The Carter & Fitch pizza is a real Italian affair. Devour the Pizza Lungo 12” thin crust pizza, fresh from our Italian oven. The base is hand stretched using long ferment dough, resulting in a delicate crust. Topped with our very own secret sauce.
Smokehouse - All of our meats are from selected prime cuts, rubbed with our unique blend of spices and seasonings, infused overnight, then smoked in our Oklahoma smokehouse oven, low and slow over Mesquite, till meltingly tender.
Bar - Our fully stocked bar has something to wet every appetite from beer, spirits, wines, champagnes and cocktails. If you feel like throwing caution to the wind…ask your server about our new ‘Hard Shakes’. We even have a ‘Speak Easy’…Shhh, that’s our little secret!

Service was really good from the minute we walked through the door but the food wasn't great. Cheap cuts of meat used, so tough and lots of gristle.
Used to be lovely here but won't be returning.

Service was good but it was not that busy in the restaurant due to the COVID situation but it was a friendly and calm relaxing vibe staff members and manager on top marks as they were always concerned the on the customers needs asking if everything is fine asking about ok for drinks the only little down side is there was no desert menu or if there was they never ask once collected are dinner plates once we were finished but apart from that it was lovely food reasonable price.

Trying to attract a waiters attention to order was annoying, then our food arrived before the cutlery, we waited 8 minutes for him to return, also the bar staff were noisy shaking cocktails longer than required.
That said, the food was amazing! such a shame the young staff let the place down.

Another great experience, quick service and fantastic food. Staff are friendly and very helpful nothing is a bother.
Due to COVID they only have a limited lunch time menu, but still plenty to choose from. I will definitely be returning again soon.

We ordered the piri piri chicken and the chicken roma pasta dish.. the piri piri chicken seasoning was awful, there was no real spice to it and it tasted like cheap perfume, when taking the seasoned skin off the chicken it was really dry. My girflfriend got the pasta dish and the server brought it to the table, asked if she wanted parmesan to which she answered yes and the server never came back. No one came to ask if our food was okay, otherwise we would have told them that the piri piri chicken didnt taste nice and was dry. When we put our knives and forks down and talked for a while someone eventually came to take our dishes and we advised that we didnt enjoy our meal or our experience. The server went away to speak to a manager and come back offering free desserts, to which we declined because we did not feel like staying any longer. They came back and advised they had taken the pasta dish off the bill, which we appreciated. Our bill came to £25 and unfortunately we dont feel like we got much value for that price. We will not return to Carter and Fitch in the future.

Firstly we were put on a table with blazing sun shining right on us so we asked to be moved we picked off the menu that wasn't on the help to eat out scheme ???? The pizzas were great but the spaghetti Bolognese was tasteless so when I mentioned to the waitress she done the right thing and said we won't be charged

I visited Carter and Finch on Friday evening. The food was nice but I did think it was quite pricey for what it was (ie pizza pasta etc). Ambiance did spoil it a little bit. Quite a few blokes who had been sitting in the bar who had obviously been sitting drinking for a couple of hours getting louder and louder and swearing etc. Not a great ambiance when you come out for a meal with the family. I don’t mind a bustling restaurant with a great atmosphere but at times I couldn’t hear the person next to me to have a conversation. We did ask to move seats and staff to their credit were very accommodating and did check on us plenty of times.

The food quality was nowhere near what we are accustomed to from eating here. We almost believe because of the 'eat out to help out' deal tve quality dropped to reflect this, dissapointed to say the least.

I’d previously been here a year or so ago and wasn’t blown away but decided to give it another try during eat out to help out. The place is well laid out with some good beers on tap, it has a very modern feel and was adhering well to covid rules. I had voodoo wings as a starter, usually going for £6, whilst they were pleasant enough you only got three of them which seems very stingy. The service was brisk if a little inattentive and cold. We never once got asked how things were or were offered to see a desert menu if indeed there was one, and whilst it was busy it’s still a bit poor. I had the cannelloni for main which again was pleasant enough but I suspect it may have been a microwave job. Again it wasn’t a huge portion and I accept the prices are higher due it being a hotel restaurant I don’t feel it was value for money. It’s a really nice location and a bit different to other places In Washington which has seen a slight improvement of late to dining options but doesn’t have a great deal of choice. I went to a local pub on the way home for desert where the warm reception was vastly different to what we experienced here. I have no problem paying more for food but I’d expect to leave more satisfied.

We went for Sunday lunch.We both had the roast dinner, one beef and one turkey.Both meets were perfectly tender and came with ample vegetables and an extra gravy boat.
We shared a cheesecake for dessert which was also delicious.
We could not have been more impressed with the service and quality of the food.We will be back very soon.Thank you.

Disappointed to say the least. Arrived to be greeted with the limited menu. I realize that in the age of COVID that these things will happen but please please update your website to reflect this! Especially in the ‘COVID update section on the site. We would not have booked if this was the case. The food was mediocre at best. Mine and my daughters was tasteless and overcooked. And for the price, very disappointed. Drinks served in dirty glasses, no one came to ask if the food was OK, no one came to ask if we wanted more drinks. Overpriced and underwhelming. Will not be returning

Lovely meal, the service was excellent. The only fault is the menu doesn't have as many choices what was previously available prior to Covid. However the food we did have was delicious so I cannot complain 😊

Responded on 24 August 2020

Hi Donna, thanks for your lovely comments. I agree it is a little frustrating to have to limit our options, this is genuinely in relation to social distancing in the kitchen and we will as time moves on once again expand our choices. I am really glad you enjoyed the food and service. Best wishes Ian

Very basic was expecting more- cutlery came after food (we had to ask for it) no salt pepper offered not asked if we required more drinks - food was passed to one diner to be given to another.
We realise times are extraordinary and the experience wasn’t terrible but I won’t be rushing back.
Sorry
