Cold, pre-cooked food. Limited choice of food and lack basic hygiene standards (twice I found hairs in my meal)

Finding Carus Green was a real blessing!

From the moment I made contact, the service was exceptional. My initial enquiry was dealt with Hannah but then Lisa became my go to lady. Nothing was too much trouble for her and she always responded to my emails promptly.

The townhouse was exactly like the photos on the website. All rooms was extremely spacious and comfortable.
There was no additional charge for high chairs or travel cots. The website will answer any questions that you have about the property.

You also have free access to gym and pool, less than 10 mins drive from the golf club (free parking)

Real home from home but more luxurious. No one wanted to leave! What does that say..........

We booked the restaurant for Sunday lunch and brought my Aunt (who lives in Kendal) to celebrate her 80th. Chris was extremely courteous, helpful and welcoming, unfortunately I can’t say the same of Amy & the other waitress. They really didn’t seem like they wanted be at work and everything seemed a real effort for them. I had read this in previous reviews so I am surprised that this hasn’t been addressed.

The food was good value as there was a set price for a 2 or 3 course menu. There was a good variety of dishes including Sunday roast.

Carus Green will definitely be one our go back to places and we will highly recommend it to friends and family.

Thank You!!!!!!

Attended a friends 50th birthday meal on Saturday night and can not recommend it highly enough. Despite another party taking place, the service was excellent, smooth and well organised. A young lady - Amy I think her name was seemed to be in charge, was very good, always smiling and nothing was too much trouble. Our meal could not be faulted. I had the steak pudding and could not eat it all, the steak fell to pieces and the pudding was packed with it. My husband had the peppercorn chicken, again excellent. Well done Carus Green, we will definitely be back.

Had a brilliant meal here from the Sunday grill menu, excellent food and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. The only slight disappointment was the staff, none of them smiled and one was particularly disinterested in her job. Will return as the food outweighed our feelings about the staff.

I would highly recommend Carus Green - our room was excellent and spotless... ensuite magnificent. Restaurant food was slightly limited but again excellent... staff friendly and helpful... prices much cheaper than they are at home, so all round fantastic.... well done Carus Green.
