Decent dinner

We ate dinner here with friends, one of whom has a number of food intolerances. The staff were very helpful and the food was good. My lamb chops were so well cooked to the point of some being burnt. However everyone else really enjoyed their mails.

Firstly pickle tray very limited, beer warm so not off to a go start, seating area is up stairs so if you have problems walking beware... Building is lovely. Main meal ordered not on the menu so I'm rating this accordingly (menus should be renewed these are showing wear and tire) overall for the price paid and based on others... More

Quite simply- this was one of the tastiest currys I have had in some time. Go for the Tarka Dhal- it was excellent.

Come here with my partner for dinner on a Friday evening. The building itself is lovely and a nice find. Food was lovely too. My only downside was we were sat next to a group of 3 lads and 2 girls who were incredibly noisy to the point it did disturb our evening, we were having to raise or voices... More

Excellent all round. Above average food and an interesting menu. Staff pleasant and service prompt. The old police station has been sympathetically refurbished and is a comfortable place to spend an evening with friends or as a couple. We thought the background music a bit odd (slushy italian when we were there) and you have to park up and around... More

For was really good and fresh, we were a fairly large party so they worked hard at getting all the food out at the same time and keeping our drinks refreshed. If you are one of these people that likes to go

Very quaint restaurant set in the old Police Station. Quite pricey for what was served up but good quality food and drinks.

Is been looking forward to eating here after hearing some good reviews from some locals and I finally had the opportunity last night. It was lovely. The location within the old Police station gave it an interesting twist especially with the dining area being open and airy with wood flooring and contemporary furniture. Very comfortable. The food did not disappoint.... More

We called in on Saturday evening without a reservation. We were found a table and enjoyed a meal of high quality and served by friendly and professional staff. The restaurant was very busy, an obvious sign of it's popularity which is not surprising given the high standards and happy, welcoming ambience. We had a lovely evening and would highly recommend.

We went to Pondicherry on the off-chance, but were very pleasantly surprised. Some very good food, including doing the basics well, and good service. Perhaps a little pricey, but it delivers with style.
