We arrived at this restaurant early on a Saturday evening and could tell from the smiling welcoming faces and cozy ambiance we were in for a treat and I was spot on. We were shown to our table and a drinks order swiftly taken and menus given. We also enjoyed a pickle tray while browsing through the menu and taking... More

We are frequent visitors of the Indian cottage and even though it was very busy service was great and the meal was first class as always. We visit at least twice a week and the chef perfects our order every time. We have tried most Indian Restaurants and found this is the best by far. Well worth a visit and... More

This was not just happening to our table as we saw others looking fed up waiting and the table next to us commented on how long they had waited. 9.50pm went home via... More

It is some years since we visited the Indian Cottage and it was worth the wait! It was a cold night, and the the restaurant is situated in an old stone barn or maybe an old hall. therefore the interior could be cold and draughty with its bare stone walls. Not so, within a log fire welcomes and all the... More

Went there for a diner after a training session, had a wonderful dish as main course where they had the curry inside a bread like dough. Very tasteful! Also the starter was very good, although I expected something different from the description compared to the name of the dish.

Been here a bunch of times but not for a while. Unique venue - barn conversion with log fire. Delightful restaurant with Indian music playing. Inexperienced young wait staff. Did their best. Dad ordered lamb but chicken arrived! Didn't want to cause a fuss or wait for another batch to be cooked. Fairly expensive for a midweek after work curry... More

Not being an Indian cuisine specialist I did enjoy the food and decor in this restaurant. Loved the open fire on a cold winter's evening.
