The Carrington Arms is a superb venue with lovely food and a great atmosphere. The way you can choose your cut of steak from their display area is a unique feature which makes it something special. Overall a highly recommended place.

My first time coming here was absolutely fantastic. Although it is seems quite pricey, it is worth every penny. It was one of the best meals out I've ever had. I thoroughly recommend.

Chose sandwiches for a light lunch and was disappointed with value for money. Very "carby" meal with chips and thick bread and thin filling with sparse salad. All very tasty but would expect more filling for the price. Have eaten dinners here before and not been disappointed with value for money.

Haven’t been for years, but still as good as ever!!! It’s not a place you can visit all the time with family as becomes a little pricey … however you pay for excellence, and everybody loved the food 10/10

Really pleasant surroundings, good pub grub… we had the classic and veggie burger and the bacon and eggs. I understand the gammon steak was delicious. Well worth a visit.

Really enjoyed our evening. The staff made my other half’s birthday extra special, even given a complimentary ‘happy birthday’ ice cream with a candle! We all enjoyed the food and look forward to coming again soon.

Have not been here for a number of years as we live much closer to Riseley and a pub that in many ways is similar. However, following a terrible experience in Riseley where we all agreed never to go again, I wanted to try out the Carrington. What a wonderful experience it was. The staff could not do enough for you and the food was first class. Congratulations to the pub and its staff for an absolutely wonderful experience.

We had an excellent evening ... the staff, environment, speed of service, and quality of the food were all great. On a lovely Summer's evening we were able to enjoy our meal outdoors on the patio, which is fully geared up to ensure prompt attention - thoroughly recommended!

Went for breakfast (we weren’t staying at the hotel) and it was lovely. Food was really nice. Good selection. The buzzer on the table to attract attention worked. Will definitely return for breakfast. Have had lunch here previously and found the menu limiting and the staff a little unfriendly as we’d not booked (this was pre pandemic days) so we hadn’t been back. But yes, I’m glad we went there again.
