    We went for Sunday Lunch, which was excellent, reasonably priced, great quality, relaxed atmosphere. Highly recommended and will be going back soon.

    We love going to the cartwright arms the food is lovely. The only part that was a slight let down on this occasion was the service we needed to request for our dirty plates to be cleared there was a long wait between the starter and the main which was disappointing.

    What a great find. We'd eaten locally before but fancied a change. The menu was limited to 5 choices in each of the starter/main/dessert category but that suited us. The food was excellent and we were waited on pleasantly and efficiently. There was a delay between main and dessert but that allowed for the food to settle and we were not hurried. The restaurant was moderately busy for this Sunday outing. The only very minor issue was that our booking wasn't recorded but we were still greeted warmly and it made no difference from our persective to the day out.

    The food on our last visit in 2020 was a lot nicer staff seemed very young and lacked experience we were not asked how we wanted food ie beef cooked it came out blue and service was quite disjointed

    Saturday lunch for seven tired ladies after a long morning of hiking over the hills. Greeted by very welcoming staff and had the restaurant to ourselves. Wonderful food! Large portions! Very happy and will definitely cone again next time we visit the area. Thank you for a fabulous lunch.

    We enjoyed the meal here, which was nicely served and well presented, and indeed a pleasant meal. The negative was that the online menu was a sample, and in reality rhere were only two meat items available on the menu. One of those was steak, and the other was steak pie.

    Food was excellent though slightly limited choice, maybe due to lunch time and time of year. We were greeted warmly and staff were very attentive Will go back again

    Slightly upmarket pub food, the prawn cocktail was particularly noteworthy with a bit more sophistication than most, and the surf & turf also very satisfactory. Decent wine list too, I found a rather unusual, excellent New Zealand Pinot Gris. Overall probably four stars but I had to award five because the prawn cocktail was so distinctive & tasty.

    What a lovely place for lunch. Fish and Chips, chosen by us all, was very tasty and a real plateful. Excellent log fire roaring away in the bar on this cold winter's day was much appreciated. Very attentive service from Caroline and her team. Lunch at The Cartwright restaurant is highly recommend.

    Very welcoming and great service. Feels like you are a guest even if only using the bar and restaurant.

    The dining room was a little bit dated but the quality of the food was good, the service was excellent, and the price very reasonable.

    We were two ladies meeting up having not seen each other in over 30 years. We found this wonderful restaurant on Google maps and saw the reviews. We were lucky they had space for us for a Sunday lunch and we were not disappointed. My prawn linguine with samphire was perfect. The service was friendly and not too hasty…we really wanted a leisurely lunch so we could talk. Loved it! Thank you to all the lovely staff at The Cartwright.

    I could not fault the meal I had - very good quality ingredients and expertly cooked - I sent my compliments to the chef, as this was truly worthy of being praised.
