Enjoyed a tasty meal last Saturday at Curry Cottage. We hadn't been for sometime as we had been rather disappointed but something new has happened and all is much improved. There are some new items on the menu which always adds interest. We also found the side dishes somehow more distinctive than before- particularly liked the dhal. Well done whoever... More

My hotel told me to try a different Indian restaurant, but I had already decided to go here. Looking through the other restaurant's window I'm convinced I made the right choice. The Curry Cottage food was excellent, making me wish I had an excuse to visit more often. Sadly it will be a year before I'm likely to return. Don't... More

Quite the worst curry I've ever had,saag paneer? the clue's in the name, this had cheddar cheese!! And they'd obviously run out of spices- onion gravy with cheap coarse chopped veg . Poor

For a long while Curry Cottage lost its way with less than average food and silly pricing with a popadoms at £1 each!! NOT ANY MORE!.... there's new dishes to try, which in my opinion are great, the flavour is back with vengeance and even the popadoms are back to 70p each :-) I can now highly recommend the place...

We had had a busy day and we're looking for a robust, cheap curry, so we opted for the Curry Cottage for a takeaway. It took 25 minutes, so I knew this was cooked properly. The owner kindly included a free salad and pickles, but what amazed me was the price- takeaway for four cost us £40- this is not... More

This ised to be really good, then went right off the boil, producing bland tepid food. I had given up on it, but as there was a change of management we decided to give it one last try, and I'm glad we did. It is now back to being a good restaurant serving a reasonable range of well cooked and... More

Can't really complain about the food. Standard fare above aveage. Very small seating area. If resturant was full it will feel a little cramped. Lighting too bright. Good service. Would definately return or get a takeaway

Ordered through Just Eat app. Came up as free delivery and reviews looked good. I am very impressed with the quality of the food. The portions were generous and delivered much faster than I expected. I would recommend them. I don't know how anyone can leave a bad review.
