Description: The Carlton Restaurant has been under new management since its opening on 3rd July 2013. Owned and run by former chef and owner of the popular Corner's Restaurant on Chalybeate Street (who have also welcomed famous Welsh celebrities in the past such as Tom Jones and Cerys Matthews from Catatonia), Toni and her partner, Gaffari, would like to welcome everyone! The Carlton Restaurant is centrally located in the main town centre of Aberystwyth and boasts an elevated position (above Superdrug) overlooking the main street. Locally-sourced and fresh ingredients and home-cooked with great care and attention to customers' health and well-being are at the forefront of The Carlton's aims. Customers can enjoy delicious and healthy drinks knowing that every beverage consumed helps to support producers in developing countries. Diners with a sweet-tooth can also try Toni's locally-famous home-made cakes and various desserts - her Lemon Meringue is a particular favourite amongst customers! The Carlton Restaurant also caters for specialised dining so customers with food allergies and intolerances can also enjoy The Carlton's food without worrying - simply mention your requirements to the staff. The Carlton Restaurant is also a popular venue for groups. Large groups (10+) are welcome to exclusively book The Carlton Restaurant on Thursday, Friday or Saturday nights. With customers' choices and satisfaction in mind, Toni and Gaff can also custom-make menus. A large selection of wines, beers and cocktails are also available (either during the day or in the evening!).

Try and visit this establishment when I'm in town with my mum for our weekly catch up!

Always greeted with a warm welcome and smile. Food is cracking, steak pie and chips is proper hearty and rich, and the burger I have pretty much always is consistently good with extra bacon and cheese!! Never leave feeling hungry! Staff are all lovely and professional, make it a pleasure to visit!!

Congrats to the new owners on doing a perfect job!!:))

What a change! Good food and good service. Not as busy as it deserves. Even the late evening meals are exceptional.

Came back to aber for a little visit and popped into the Carlton for the first time since the owners changed whilst I was at university. It is lovely now! I had a lovely drink and a tea cake. It was really busy but that didn't faulter the service at all, I was welcomed and served by the lovely Clare who was friendly and smiley to everyone who came through. The food being served looked really great and Clare explained that everything is homemade and fresh so I cannot wait to come back and try some of the delicious meals on the menu. Really lovely place in a great location and a fabulous atmosphere...

Hope it does well

I often go into Aberystwyth with the wife shopping and have something to eat and drink. Today needed to take the car in for a service at 8:15 so left the house with no breakfast. You must try the Carlton would recommend it. The staff very helpful I ordered my food and a drink and the young lady even brought me a paper to read, to read whilst I waited for my meal.

During our weekend visit to Aberystwyth we visited the Carlton twice in the same day! Each was a very enjoyable experience. The coffees and homemade croissants were lovely and despite the restaurant being very busy arrived at the table promptly. The staff are all extremely pleasant.
We returned to the Carlton at 7 for dinner and were greeted by the lovely owners. The steaks were very tender and cooked to perfection and the other 2 members of the party enjoyed 1 of the vegetarian options and a chicken and chorizo dish. The atmosphere at night was very pleasant and the seats are extremely comfortable.
I would highly recommend the Carlton for all as it caters for a wide range of tastes, is very friendly and the food is all home-prepared and cooked to order.
