Contemporary British
The award winning Carriages restaurant is uniquely located within the allpay ltd campus in Whitestone Business Park, Hereford, and has been described as "City chic in rural Hereford".

Carriages was inspired by founder Tony Killeen's passion for trains and the quirky setting of the restaurant, which overlooks the old Whitestone railway station.

You can enjoy views of the rolling hills from the floor to ceiling windows in the top floor restaurant; dine inside or alfresco, on the spacious balcony, or walk the landscaped grounds surrounding the Four Seasons lake - which transforms into a maze of secret gardens, impressively lit up at night.

Carriages is open Friday and Saturday evenings.

For bookings over 6 and/or to book our free mini bus service, for use after dining, please call 01432 852303 or email carriages@allpay.net

Due to the nature of the restaurant, any children dining must be over 12 years old and accompanied by an adult.

Dress code is strictly Smart Casual.

    5 stars last time, we all felt rushed from one course to the next, we said a couple of times could we please have a few more minutes, the restaurant wasn’t as busy as last time so we didn’t see the need?
    Carriages RestaurantResponded 6 days ago
    Good afternoon, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with a review, feedback from our guests is very important to us and much appreciated. We would like to take this opportunity to apologise - we never want our guests to feel rushed in any way, and always do everything we can to ensure that this isn't the case. With larger tables, as with your booking, the team is required to stick to strict timings from the kitchen to ensure the quality of food and service to our diners. We very much hope you will visit us again in the near future, but if you would like to discuss your recent visit in more detail then please send us an email and our Restaurant Manager will of course be more than happy to talk to you about your recent experience. Many thanks, Carriages Management Team.

    Fantastic food and great service provided by our waiter Roma. We were warmly welcomed into the restaurant and seated at our table. We were provided with a complimentary glass of prosecco and canapes. Despite this being a belated Birthday celebration, the team still provided my husband with some birthday treats. We were given a tour of the wine room and informed of future events at the restaurant. A very enjoyable evening and would wholeheartedly recommend.
    Carriages RestaurantResponded on March 25, 2024
    Good afternoon, Thank you so much for your wonderful review. When a member of our team is personally named, we know that it was a special evening for you, and your comments will be provided to Roma. We always try to do a little bit of a treat for special occasions, belated or otherwise, and it was our pleasure to play a part in your husband's celebration. We hope you enjoyed the Wine Room; it is a very special place for private dining with its own menu and an accompanying wine flight can also be enjoyed - the experience can be booked through our website if you would like to enjoy this for your next visit. We hope to welcome you back to Carriages soon. Carriages Management Team.

    Real surprise as it’s on an industrial estate. We were greeted at the door, enthusiastic young staff, decor good, temperature comfortable, good space between tables, hot tasty amuse bouche, meal cooked with thought and attention to detail, reminiscent of classic French but more complex, just delicious. Apparently there is a car to take you home if required. There are some nice touches too, no extra cost, and overall cost is realistic. Makes a happy customer. We will revisit.
    Carriages RestaurantResponded on March 11, 2024
    Good morning, Thank you for your review - it sounds like the surprise of our location was a nice surprise, and it is certainly one of the reasons that we are unique. Some of the other reasons are the service we always aim to provide from the moment our guests arrive, the stunning complexities of our dishes and our overall attention to detail; it is so nice that you have taken the time to comment on all of these, and more. We do indeed offer a free minibus service to guests, after their visit, this is within 15 minutes of the restaurant and needs to be booked in advance due to how popular the service is...for your next visit, if you would like to make use of this, make your booking as soon as you can. We very much look forward to welcoming you back soon. Carriages Management Team.
