This restaurant has a good menu, excellent service and a nice atmosphere, although you can tell it used to be a Working Mens Club. The Sunday Buffet is nowhere near as good as the regular menu but the price reflects this.

This is a real gem of a restaurant in an area which is typically full of mediocre tourist-traps. The food is fantastic and the staff are attentive and friendly. I can definitely recommend the fish pakora with chilli dip which is the best we'd had in Barnsley (and we've tried a lot over the years), lots of soft white fish...

The curries were all very hot and were rather tasty, I did think they were rather salty though. The place is clean I guess, with old fashioned furniture in the buffet area.... More

Tried loads of other places, but always return here. Don't be put off by the exterior of this place, its the quality of the food that makes it one of... More
