Lunch in The Brasserie at The Carlton

Many of you know that we’ve refurbished our Brasserie and Bar at The Carlton, and we are pleased to serve lunch to everyone five days a week. Our freshly prepared, seasonal and locally sourced menu is available Wednesday through 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 puddings. 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 The Tunnels Beaches, and you can rest assured we are also open for breakfast and dinner daily. Our full range of menus can be seen here.

Lunch is served from 12:30pm Weds through Sunday (not Mon or  Tues).

  • Lunch from £16.
  • Sunday Lunch from £17.50.

Pricing is for adults. We have a children’s menu and offer smaller portions of our main menu, please ask for more details if required.


Open to Non-Residents

We are open to locals and visitors, with prior reservation. We serve breakfast, Sunday Lunch, light bites, afternoon tea or dinner in our Brasserie to both residents and non-residents.

Gluten-Free Dining

We 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.
