I visited for the first time tonight with a friend, after reading the reviews on trip advisor and we were very impressed. The staff were extremely friendly the food was freshly prepared and delicious. We finished our meal with homemade traditional deserts. Will definitely be back very soon.

It is sad that traditional English pubs continue to die. This excellent Kashmiri restaurant is housed in what was once "The Hermitage Inn". On a balmy Wednesday evening in August, we arrived for the first time - continuing our search for the perfect curry meal in the South Yorkshire region. And do you know, what we were served was close... More

Visited this establishment in a group for a celebration The food was reasonable and priced accordingly although lacking a wow factor Customers provide their own alcoholic beverages, the restaraunt only sells water and soft drinks OK for an occasional meal but I will not be a regular visitor

My daughter and I nipped in for a quick late dinner last week. The food and service was superb, deep rich flavours meltingly tender mutton and light perfectly cooked rices and breads.
