Staying at Bottomhouse barns so only about 100 metres from cloves. So thought we would try. Very quiet, but food was really really good. All cooked with care and full of flavour. Staff very nice, not to over the top, like you find in some Indian restaurants. Shame front of pub/Indian doesn't do it justice. Well done Cloves

Great food, excellent service, lovely atmosphere…. what more do you want? We enjoyed a fantastic family meal. Our waiter was so friendly and attentive without being too intrusive. He made some excellent recommendations. We all enjoyed our food, we recommend the sharing platters to start.

Had a very pleasant evening celebrating my birthday with my wife and 2 daughters. The service was good, the food was excellent and with the menu being a little different from the traditional it was nice to try alternative Indian cuisine. Very good and will certainly go back.

My wife and I exuded to eat here as it was close to where we were staying and we both love Indian Cuisine. It was a little bit quite when we arrived with just one other family. It soon filled a little and had a pleasant atmosphere. The service was efficient and friendly without being intrusive. Food was delivered promptly... More
