Lunch at The Carlton

Many of you know we have refurbished our Brasserie and Bar at The Carlton. So, this year we are pleased to serve lunch to everyone five days a week. Our freshly prepared, seasonal and locally sourced menu is available from 20th April, Wednesday through to Saturday; and we’ve kept our popular Sunday lunch menu.

We have a great value, special fixed price menu at just £16 for two courses. Featuring a choice of starters, mains and puds. Light salads, and parfaits give way to local ingredients, like the Creedy Carver duck leg, and Appledore fish goujons, and for a small supplement a West Country rump steak. Our plant-based offer includes starters, desserts and a slow cooked flat mushroom, spelt and baby gem main course.

We’re off the beaten track, next to Tunnels Beaches, and you can rest assured we are open daily for breakfast and dinner everyday and now lunch from Wednesday through to Sunday. Our full range of menus can be seen HERE.

  • Breakfast to non-residents is £14.
  • Lunch from £16.
  • Sunday Lunch from £17.50.
  • Dinner, look out for our special offers and view our regular seasonal menu.

Pricing is for adults. We have a children menu and offer smaller portions of our main menu, please ask for the details.

Gluten free dining

We also serve gluten free options at all meal times. Because we cook from scratch it is easy to meet individual dietary requests including gluten free and coeliac needs. Let us know beforehand and we’ll ensure you can experience the majority of our menu.
