The Café Carleton is vegetarian and vegan friendly with carvery and cold food options. All food is freshly made on the premises daily and they also produce their own Jams, Chutneys and Meringues so you can enjoy the taste of the Café Carleton at home. The interior was recently redesigned by the famous American interior designer Carleton Varney. 

Carleton Varney has designed the interiors of landmark buildings from Washington to Japan, and now the world-renowned interior designer has brought his iconic style to Newbridge Silverware.  The ‘Decorator to the Stars’ who is also known in the USA as ‘Mr. Colour’ was commissioned by Newbridge Silverware in 2017 to redesign its restaurant, which is now known as ‘Café Carleton’.

Mr. Varney has a high-achieving CV that includes projects such as The White House, government buildings around the world, hotels and the mansions of international celebrities.  He has a magnificent career for over 50 years and remains as one of the brightest minds in the world of interior design. As one of the foremost Irish lifestyle companies in the world Newbridge Silverware is a brand that is synonymous with style, cutting-edge design and fashion and knew that Carleton was the person to stamp his signature style on the restaurant.

It is a country I always like coming to. It is an honour for me to have a restaurant named after me at Newbridge Silverware, an iconic Irish brand loved by so many.
