Having our meeting there with clients was a fiiting end to a smooth transaction. Food and service was really good and my main course was really delicious I had the lamb rezala cooked madras strength and it was made to perfection.

We were three diners on a quiet Monday evening. Nice ambience and friendly welcome. It was clear when the food arrived that this was not your normal curry. The difference was obvious. High quality ingredients, lovely fresh spices and everything looked and tasted terrific. Awesome shaslik, and some wonderful recommended specialities. Just superb.

We visited the Hoops for the first time last Monday evening, and although we were the only ones sat in the restaurant at the time, we found the service from the owner and staff brilliant. Nothing was too much trouble, and they were very attentive. The food was exceptional - and good size portions as well! Presentation of the meals... More

We arrived, having booked, at 7pm on a Friday evening, and were the only sit-down customers until 7.50pm. Despite this (because of it?) the service was unfriendly bordering on rude. The waiters ignored us most of the time, when they did deign to serve us it was without a smile or any hint of warmth, we really felt unwelcome. The... More

First time visit and most impressed. Great and unexpected location in a country village in what at one time what was the village pub. How England has changed! The restaurant is very clean, comfortable and sports a lovely bar area. The service was good being both friendly and efficient.

So where to start: 2 dead flies in the mango chutney. The madras tasteless and no heat - tesco ready meals have more flavor. Chicken makhani & lamb makhani mixed up - both tasted like wheaty porridge with korma mixed in - dreadful. Put us off the whole meal. Ceylon was ok which was the only meal eaten. Complained about...

We are so lucky to live close to the Hoops, they provide the best curry ever! We tend to have take aways, you phone your order and can pick up a piping hot curry 20-30 minutes later. No hassle, polite friendly service and great food. Its a regular for us and our friends.
