I find the seating very uncomfortable and not suitable for young children as everything is centred around very tall tables and chairs. That saying the outside area does have lower level seating in the summer. There is wifi , an English menu... More

This is a very cool place full of expats. The beer (especially the local brew) is amazing and the service was top notch.

First and foremost, this pub serves the best curry East of London. It caters for the British palette, with amazing curries that you would otherwise have to travel to Birmingham to even get anywhere close to in terms of taste.
