Looking forward to going again!

We've wanted to try this Indian for a while but we're always passing outside opening hours. Fortunately on Monday we were there just after 6.00pm. It was worth the wait. There were a lot of curries on the menu that were new to us that sounded lovely. To judge a restaurant for the first time we... read more

We have passed this place several times and both said we should try it one day. Well today was the day. We rang quite late to book not expecting to get a table as it was valentines day but we were lucky. When we arrived it was busy but the staff were pleasant and polite despite being under pressure.

One can hardly expect a steaming atmosphere at 10pm on a winter Monday, so we dined alone in the pleasantly and apparently recently decorated large dining room, in what seems to be a converted country pub. Food met expectations, nothing special but probably a reliable local. And there is a good choice of locale ale alongside the inevitable "Indian' beers.... More

We decided very last minute we fancied going for a curry, we have been several times to spice of India and can't fault anything about it, the staff have always been polite, happy to serve you with a smile, which these days can be a rarity, the food has always met our expectations, and i will admit to being a...

Have eaten here many times over many years. Four of us visited yesterday evening and all agreed the food was all outstanding in every respect. Made very welcome, with friendly attentive service. The owner also spent several minutes chatting with us and explained the nature and background of some of the dishes. If you want loud music, large noisy groups... More

I took my two children here on New Years Eve, I had seen it rated well on a Trip Advisor, all I can say is, if this is excellent then you need to get out more. Sorry but Awful is being polite! I booked in advance, got there, waited at the bar after informing the staff of my booking, all... More

Collected a takeaway last week. Ordering was ok and food almost ready when it was said ut would be. However the two main dishes were completely bland and uninspiring. Very disappointing.

Saturday night, we thought we'd try this place for the first time after reading positive reviews. It wasn't particularly busy, we were greeted quite rudely, but shown to our table fairly quickly. We were asked for drinks orders before we'd even looked at the menu - we asked for a little time and he took a long time to return... More
