When my brother in law said his local pub served curry I expected the usual pub style chicken tikka masala and, 'Do you want chips or rice with that?' So I was very pleased when Bobby served us at the bar and explained that we could expect traditional Indian food prepared with spices grown on his own family's land. The... More

A friend and I called in at the Gordon Arms on Saturday lunchtime to sample their Indian tapas. The landlord was very patient polite and answered all our questions. He forewarned us that the fish might be some time before arriving. We ordered it anyway plus 3 other dishes which we said we would be eating while we waited. There... More

Bobbys Spice is the Indian restaurant within the pub and it's awesome. Bobby the host knows everything about the food, which is real traditional Indian food done in the proper style and done with proper care. Real passion and very welcoming, it's a great place. And then you can stay in the pub and have a big night!

Can't rate this place highly enough. Don't get put off by the "tapas" label, the food portions are more than enough and of superb quality. Great staff too. Go there

Decided to try out Indian tapas menu at the Gordon Arms for lunch with a friend. We were made very welcome by the new landlords. Service was very friendly, prompt and helpful. The food was clearly freshly prepared and attractively served. Fish pakora, aloo chat, chana masala and sag paneer dish all a treat with distinctive and subtle flavours. Excellent... More

I went to this pub on the weekend with my family. I wanted to have a mix grill and had some Butter chicken. With the mix grill they had some fish, I dont normally like fish but when i had some here i absolutely loved it and recommend it. It felt very relaxed family oriented pub.
