Good meal completely let down by a long argument over the acceptability of our discount voucher. My friends and I are regulars at CB, and had been given the vouchers when we went just before Christmas. When we arrived last night we showed the voucher to the waiter who greeted us who confirmed we could use it. There was a... More

We went as a party of 10. The food was lovely and there was a really great atmosphere. The portions where a good size and everyone enjoyed their starters and mains. It is not a cheap restaurant but it is worth the price. Inside is elaborately decorated and makes for an extravagant evening. The service wasn't the quickest but it... More

Can't praise this restaurant highly enough. All the times we've visited we've never had an issue. NYE, as you would expect was very busy however the service was seamless and the food was delicious. We will definitely be back soon and will continue to recommend!

Visited with 3 friends night before Xmas Eve. Friendly reception, long wait for (good) starter, then 1.25 hours & no mains! Finally threatened to leave whereupon mains arrived - lukewarm to cold, none of the dishes as ordered & v poor quality - clearly thrown together in panic! Paid for drinks & immediate exit. Very disappointing & won't be re-visiting.... More

The food was excellent but eating off plates that were scratched was disappointing! Previous reviewers were correct, the bill was wrong... They tried to charge us for another tables drinks but sorted as soon as it was pointed out. Nevertheless, we would definitely eat there again.

My boyfriend and I visited this restaurant on a long weekend in Harrogate. We went in quite late on a Sunday evening and it was very quiet, the staff were exceptionally welcoming and friendly. We ordered popadoms with dips along with our mains and everything was delicious! Especially the peshwari naan! The best thing about our visit to this restaurant... More

Wow! This restaurant really excelled itself on my latest visit. The service was attentive but not intrusive. Everyone was good humoured, welcoming and polite. The timing of our order was delivered exactly as we had requested. My monkfish and king prawn curry from the specials list was superb- well flavoured, and with succulent fish. My only niggle was with the... More
