Carriages Restaurant near Hereford has been named as ‘Best Restaurant in England’ at the England Business Awards.

Carriages restaurant is uniquely located within the Head Office of allpay Ltd within the impressive campus at Whitestone Business Park, Hereford.  

Tony Killeen, Owner and Founder, wanted to share his love of fine dining and wine to the County, and bring his vision for Carriages to life.
