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!

    The food was excellent especially the pizza, unfortunately they didn’t have the ribs that I really wanted. Did find the whole place quite loud though and it wasn’t massively busy. Staff were great and very helpful and did recommend better places to request to sit if you wanted it a bit quieter

    Food was outstanding! And the staff were so lovely really great at their jobs however whoever was making the drinks was a bit slow we seemed to wait ages each time even tho the restaurant wasn’t full. Had to be chased twice. The waitress was great though. Drinks are super expensive, Definitely not worth it for the cocktails, the place was clean and really nicely put together. However the heating was ridiculously High. Definitely would come back when we stay at the hotel again but not somewhere I’d visit too often

    This was a birthday meal for my wife. We were looking forward to attending, however we found the table service to be lacking due to long waits for drinks and also waiting a long time to pay. We brought our friends along who had not been to carter and fitch before and left disappointed which isn’t true to the normal service we have experienced in the past. One young lady that severed our party was very nice and seemed to be the person picking up the slack when others were less attentive.

    Great staff, very helpful. Good food but some people a bit drunk and loud apparently from a wedding, and the football was on so way too much noise. Too loud for a restaurant and relaxing meal and more like a bar which is not ideal when you are paying above average prices for food

    Easy to book a table for 4. On arrival we were pleasantly greeted, shown to our table and drinks order taken. Food order was taken and within 15 minutes we were served our beautiful Sunday roast which was we presented and tasted beautiful. Good to see the regular friendly faces when we return each time. Thank you for our fantastic meal experience x

    Food was amazing but staff just stood around the bar. Didn’t ask if we wanted to see the dessert menu once we’d finished or if we wanted the bill. No communication between staff as on several occasions people at nearby tables had been asked twice if they were enjoying their meal and we had also been asked twice if we were finished with our meal when one girl had already went to get us some takeout boxes. After waiting for a good 15/ 20 minutes we then went up to the bar to pay. But will be back for the food as I can’t fault that at all, well done chefs!!

    Food was lovely but quite overpriced, service was questionable. I asked for a side table and was declined, as they had bookings. Fair enough but the table I asked for wasn’t reserved. Also no menu on table, and wasn’t told I had to order food at the bar. Easy wins for a business that were overlooked. Other than that, nice place!!

    Prompt and polite service. We were made to feel welcome from the moment we stepped into the restaurant. Booking was easy and just a couple clicks to secure a table a couple of hours before hand. Food was generous and served warm. Had Sunday Taster Platter, which was well presented. Really succulent slices of meat. Will visit again.

    Rang to ask for quiet spot for our daughter with autism. Got call back and said I could come and pick a spot which was a nice thing to do. Staff couldn't do enough and it's a lovely setting. The food was fantastic and we will definitely go again. Only went as staying in hotel but plan to go back and maybe try the Sunday dinner menu. Highly recommended place to dine.

    Normally we have a fantastic meal at Carter and Fitch and have never had a cause to complain however yesterday’s experience was disappointing. The service was slow, drinks order was taken then forgotten about so had to reorder 15 mins later. Food order for Sunday lunch arrived incorrect and the roast potatoes were missing from the plates, when we enquired whether roast potatoes should be included as every other plate around us had them on I was told by the waiter erm I’m not sure I’ll check.... obviously they hadn’t checked as no roasties arrived. What food we did receive was luke warm. Unfortunately yesterday was not good service nor was it good value for money. However hopefully this was just a one off poor experience and won’t put us off from returning again but we may stay clear from peak times in future.

    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.
