Warm and convivial atmosphere. Great selection of meals on the menu and hard to choose which to go for given only one visit. Beutifully presented food with generouse portions keenly priced. Thoroughly recommended

Service dreadful, they attempted to give us other peoples drinks twice, asked for water for three times from three different members of staff before it came (when we had finished our meal). The meal with champ and chicken was disgusting. The champ was like water and tasteless, the chicken dried up, the pepper sauce could have been anything and the tobacco onions were like paste. When the bill came two sweets came along with it for six people! and to top it off when we went to pay they had the paper in the card machine in the wrong way round. Not a pleasant evening. Won't be back unless we hear it has improved.

My wife and I gave this restaurant a try in early September. We had booked but there were plenty of spare tables. It had a nice warm atmosphere with helpful friendly floor staff. We both had the vegetable soup, which tasted great but the vegetables were long and stringy, making it very difficult to eat without making a dribbling mess. I had the gammon with champ which was excellent in both quantity and quality. My wife, on the other hand, had the beef and Guinness pie with chips. The dish was served in separate bowls on a small wooden tray without a main plate, which was totally impractical for eating. The pie had plenty of tender beef but it was so salty, my wife was unable to eat it. The chips were very poor in both appearance and taste. They had a greasy after taste reminiscent of being fried in oil that should have been changed long before that night. As we were about to leave we were asked by two separate floor staff if everything was OK and when on each occasion I replied that my food was fine and despite the fact that my wife's food remained uneaten, neither thought it worthwhile to check why my wife had not eaten the most of her food. My wife will not be going back to the restaurant again.

Hi went to Carmichael's for our 5th anniversary dinner. Had a lovely time. Staff very friendly and attentive. I have recently become vegan and was delighted to see they had a vegan menu. Food was delicious and I will definitely be back to try more from the vegan menu. Thanks carmichael's for catering so well for vegans, I just wish more restaurants would follow your lead

Thank mel a
