The staff were great, the Art Deco restaurant is great, unfortunately the afternoon tea isn't! We paid £17.50 per head for one round of sandwiches, a few dry scones with jam/cream and some assorted cakes ( I think frozen but not 100% sure on this). The tea/coffee was brought out as required and the staff couldn't have been more helpful... More

We had our first visit on Christmas Day and we had a fantastic experience from start to finish the food, the service and the atmosphere was amazing! We next visited on Hogmanay for the five course taster menu which was exceptional. Our waiter had obviously learnt about each dish and explained every course to perfection, for a young man, he...

My dad opted for the fish and chips,it was a huge piece of fish very fresh. He thoroughly enjoyed it. My sister and I opted for the vegetarian main course felafel, with... More

We chose the Carron as it was recommended to us as an exceptional place to dine. For New Years Eve they offered a five course meal that was exceptional. Great service in an amazing setting with spectacular food. This is a great place for a special night out.

My husband and I went here for the very first time last night for dinner. If only every restaurant was as good as this. Easily the best meal from a restaurant, I've had in over 20 years. The starter of ham hock Terrine was awesome and the main of seabass with crushed potatoes left me speechless. Seabass is a fish... More

To put this review in to context, we've been visiting The Carron for the last 10+ years for our friends Christmas night out and always look forward to it. However, following our visit on Saturday 10 December we all left feeling hugely disappointed. As it was Christmas we were required to pre-order all of our three courses from their £32.50... More

I felt the starters were varied and interesting but not so the mains..I could find nothing I wanted to eat. So I had the wild mushroom starter which was very good. The mussels with a lemon sauce also were very good. Desserts were varied and all pronounced happy with them. The sticky toffee pudding and the mango tart were excellent.... More
