Owner and Chef, Scott Webster, offers patrons the benefit of his 40 years experience working in and owning some of the best restaurants in the world. A stone's throw from the harbour with its new yacht club, the local fishing fleet and Fisherman's Co-op, Carrington Place offers guests high quality guest house style accommodation and a special food and wine experience, all at reasonable prices and close to the harbour, inner city and beaches.
