I can only echo the recent posituve reviews. We are regular locals and always find food and service consistent. Though we have had to train ourselves to skip starters, just pops and mains for us!,

This is the best Indian restaurant for miles around and the food is matched by superb and polite customer service. My husband likes hot curry and they always cater any dish on the menu to his taste. If you are in the area band fancy Indian food then make sure you glove The Elephant a try.

My partner and I had a fantastic experience at The Elephant. We were personally greeted at the door and shown to our table. The waiters were all extremely polite, friendly and available whenever we needed them. The food was delicious and very reasonably priced - it was also promptly served! We would highly recommend The Elephant and would definitely visit... More
