Celebrate Good Times

If you’re looking to organise a party or special occasion in North Devon, the Carlton is an amazing venue. Our grand Victorian building is a fantastic space with multiple event room options, from small and intimate to a grand space with capacity for 150 people.

Our venue is perfect for weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, and celebration of life events. See our individual occasion pages for more information.

We can provide all the essentials to ensure your party is a great success. We cover all the bases when it comes to food, with packages that cater from buffets to seated formal meals; all of our food is fresh and locally sourced, appetising and always impressive.

Our well stocked bar, located in our Brasserie restaurant, is waiting to serve your guests, and if you’re expecting a busy one, we can even provide an extra pop-up bar to ensure the drinks flow freely! There are options to pre-pay for drinks or operate a cash only bar.

Let us know what you want from a special occasion event and The Carlton will do the rest! We are experienced in making sure any event runs smoothly and hassle free.
