Excellent home made tasty food with a great choice of menu. Small restaurant seats approx thirty people with a quiet and friendly atmosphere. Service very efficient and restaurant very clean. I would certainly recommend a visit and will be returning soon. One bit of advise would be to reserve a table, as opening times are limited to certain day's in the week and Sunday lunchtime.

Been here on a number of occasions for fairly simple reasons: it's local, reasonably priced and proper home cooking unlike nearby Wetherspoons which serves processed tasteless lukewarm pap (someone has to say it ).
The food at the Carriage is consistently of a high standard, tasty and fairly quick service and I love the mashed turnip served with roasts.
If I had to give negatives they would be that the cod on a Friday is fairly small despite having the best crispy batter I have eaten, the boiled potatoes need plenty of salt but the mash is lovely. However, the homemade mint sauce is gorgeous. Lovely homemade chips !
If you are not off put by the clientele being mostly elderly (yet very pleasant people) then go here for lunch
