Some time ago I wrote a review say how bad the food was here. I was there twice recently once for a bar meal & once for a restaurant meal and the improvement was amazing. The bar meal was really excellent and the restaurant meal was first class. Now I would recommend to anyone.

From the initial welcome and greet to the genuine thank yous on leaving, The Carlton restaurant was quite simply a wonderful dining experience. The staff were at all times friendly and respectful and nothing was too much trouble even catering for the fussier members of our party.
The food is fine dining without being to fussy, good portions without being to minimal. The restaurant is a little formal but has a soft feel at the same time. A really relaxing ambience, enhanced by the staff ensured we all had an exceptionally good evening.
The food is excellent, the scallops and king prawn starter expertly cooked and delicious, ham hock terrine also well presented and very tasty. Light and tangy sorbet and home-made also, the soup equally as good. Not one of our main courses could be faulted, Fellbred Lamb delicious, Seabass and fillet steak cooked to perfection. Desserts were equally impressive most of us had the sticky toffee pudding ...suberb but the brullee and crumble were nearly as good.
If you have something to celebrate or just want a really good meal out The Carlton restaurant is the place to go in Workington. Price is not the cheapest but at £32.00 for 4 courses still good value considering the quality. We also noticed that the Lounge bar area served bar suppers so you do have a choice of dining options, should you not want the full dinner experience.
