Great meal wonderful service. Lots of regulars around us. This was our first visit to The Lea Spice and it won't be our last. They looked after us and they catered for our children. Thank you Abdul we will be back.

The Indian meal we had at the The Crown was tasty. Service was good, friendly and it was nice to eat at a table with a starched linen tablecloth. Drinks were brought in from the bar to the restaurant area by wait staff.

Popped in for a quick drink as we were staying locally. Looked quaint from the outside. However, as a non indian food fan - the smell was a bit over powering in the inside bar area. Pub is very pocky but does have a pool table and dart table. Sadly to even pop outside to enjoy your drink, you have... More

Five stars are not enough. Our visit for daughter's birthday could not have been better. Abdul is the perfect host. Friendly, informative and obliging. A fantastic choice of meals some well known, others new to us were all reasonably priced and our choices tasted so good. Abdul then treated us to an extra meal between us that is going to... More

Great service, friendly staff and the food is one of the best Indian meals I have tasted. We were a party of four and nothing was too much trouble. Very varied menu and they will cater to your requirements, hotter or milder if you wish. Very reasonably priced. Thankyou for a lovely evening. We will be back!
