This restaurant benefits from the personal attention of the Owner, and the quality of the cooking reflects this. The slight drawback of this is that the waiters can be over-attentive, under the eye of the Boss! I have eaten Curries in several cities in England, and this is very good, and the price is fair for the quality of cooking.... More

I ordered a vegetarian menu, only to find that the vegetable samosa had lamb in them. The waiter didn't seem that bothered, however at least they didn't change me for that dish. Restaurant lacked atmosphere, and it became clear that they wanted us to leave when they started to turn the lights off (it was only 10 pm).

We are sorry we served you the wrong samosa, we did not charge you. I have spoken to my staff, and assure you it will not happen again. However we did ask you if you were fine and wanted any water or complimentary drink? We did not turn the lights of because we close at 11. More

The Lancer is a favourite place to meet up for a nice dinner with friends, usually midweek. The food is always excellent and the service quick and friendly. Just one improvement I would make is for a better selection of wine by the glass. Other than that - fantastic!

Despite the fact that we were the only ones in for Boxing Day lunch, and the restaurant was a bit cold (but the staff had put on a fan heater prior to our arrival) we thought the food was great. All of us were pleased with our choices and will definitely return. Service was good and would recommend. Unfortunately some... More

We have recently moved to the Newmarket area and have been looking forward to a good curry in one of Newmarket's indian restaurants. Decided on The Lancer, booked online and asked not to sit near the door. When we arrived we were given a friendly greeting and we were shown to our table for two upstairs overlooking the High Street.... More
