The Carriers Inn is beautifully situated on the edge of Delamere Forest with extensive views across Hatchmere. We went there for lunch on a cold and wet Easter Monday and were pleased to find that it was lovely and warm inside. It was a shame that there were not many people there, because it is a really friendly place with welcoming staff and excellent food; maybe the unseasonable weather had kept people from venturing out.
There was a wide and interesting menu with a number of vegetarian options. We chose a starter of goats’ cheese tartlet with caramelised red onion and a main course of wild mushroom pasta. Both meals were freshly cooked and very tasty. Our waitress was very chatty, and we discovered that she was a final-year music student who played piano in the bar on Saturday evenings. She very kindly agreed to give us an impromptu rendition of Billy Joel’s “Piano Man” before we left, which was a very nice touch which left us with happy memories and a desire to go again soon.
Disabled access is fairly good – there are disabled parking spaces right outside the door, but be careful of a low step through the door. Most of the dining area is level, but there are steps if you wish to go down into the conservatory.
