We are Good Food Guide's Restaurant of the Year
Elizabeth Carter, Consultant Editor of the Good Food Guide, said:
‘It was such a tough judging assignment this year – every one of our regional winners was operating at such a high standard. But ultimately Brad Carter and Holly Jackson’s small neighbourhood restaurant won our hearts and the Good Food Guide’s Readers’ Restaurant of the Year award.
'Exceptional friendliness, sheer professionalism, value for money and food that is not only delicious but also properly prepared, seasonal and locally sourced may be a simple recipe for success, but not many manage to get it so right. I wish every town had a restaurant of this standard.
“Lovely little neighbourhood restaurant with black ash tables and a glass-fronted cabinet running down one wall. Each dish is made up of three key components - which can include some unusual ingredients; combinations are well-balanced and flavours are intense. The young team are friendly and engaging.”

Carters is an amiable set-up that mixes classy informality with modern British food of the best sort. ‘Simple, affordable and fun’ are the watchwords, but there’s nothing flippant about the results on the plate – witness clear-flavoured seasonal dishes.

“It’s fine dining, yes, but a meal at Brad Carter and Holly Jackson’s neighbourhood restaurant is all about simple, affordable, fun”.
Also Back in 2015 Carters was a runner up in best restaurant award as voted for by readers of Observer Food Monthly.
