We have dined here fairly regularly over the last decade, enough that the owner stops and chats in the high street, but the standards of the service has sunk to an all time low. If you dine in then it is hit and miss if you get service on a Saturday evening due to the large take away trade which seems to rule. The door continually opens and closes which allows gales into the sitting area. The phone rings at the bar area and the staff move bag after bag of take away through the dining area. This is not a place for a quiet meal or one where you want privacy. The manager is rude and he certainly is not welcoming, when we attempted to ask to place our order, after arriving 35 minutes(we had had our popadoms in this time - wrong order but was changed and the table had been cleared but no-one came to take our order) we were ignored, we called the takeaway number and gave our order, the manager was NOT amused and we were told to pay for our drinks and leave. So we and our friends and family will not recommend the service we will be trying the new pomegranate Restaurant who seem to at least be friendly.
