We happened upon The Lancer today and decided to give it a try even though it's rated average among Newmarket restaurants. I must admit that we were very surprised and truly enjoyed our meals. The papa dam toppings were exceptional as was the persian dish. I highly recommend the food. It is significantly better than what we have experienced at... More

I booked this on line and because of the large no of friends attending I changed reservation twice with ease, I requested tables to be arranged in a square so everybody could talk to each other rather than just the person opposite, again they accommodated us with this request also. Service was excellent, staff were friendly and food was delicious,... More

We enjoyed talking to you. We charge for the pappadums and accompaniments as shown on the menu together. This is because we use the finest/quality ingredients to balance the flavour with the palate. You had a large Saag Poneer which is mild. Which restaurant did you visit in London that the bill was £60? Yes in London and depending on... More
