Under its new ownership, the bar and kitchen at Ilfracombe’s Carlton hotel has undergone a renaissance in 2016.

The hotel has rapidly earned a fine reputation for customer service and attention to detail. This is complemented by The Carlton’s excellent cuisine. The head chef is proud to feature produce with local provenance on a menu that is simply and expertly executed. You might start your meal with soft yolk Scotch egg with flaked Exmoor ham, divine Devon chicken and ham pancake in cream and Mendip Cheddar sauce, or classic game terrine with chutney and brioche toast. Fresh fish is well represented on the menu, with local trout, beer-battered haddock and seasonal specials from the local waters. Exmoor pork, beef and chicken are also staples among the ever-evolving lunch and dinner offering. Handmade desserts include the classic banoffee pie, popular Eton Mess, indulgent chocolate pots and luscious sticky toffee pudding. With such an appetising choice of honest dishes at honest prices, you can be sure of a great-value fresh food experience. On the set menu, two courses are priced at £16.50 and three at £19.50, and pre-theatre suppers are also available.

A keenly priced wine list features some innovative choices from modern producers across the continents. A New Zealand white and red at only £15.50 per bottle are among the house wines, and there’s even house Prosecco and Champagne. 

Located within five minutes of Ilfracombe’s harbour and maritime area, adjacent to the famous tunnels leading through to the beaches, The Carlton is conveniently located and has its own car park, making it easily accessible.

New event spaces have created areas that can accommodate a variety of occasions. From fine dining in the library to banquets for up to 100 guests, The Carlton can make your event, special occasion and overnight stay even more memorable.
