Great food, even better service. Would have liked a little more lamb in the main course but otherwise excellent.

Not being able to get a table in any other pub/restaurant one night in Beer recently, we decided to give The Spice Merchant a try (amazing how you can always get a table in an Indian restaurant!!) Although service was a bit on the slow side, the meals we had were well prepared and better than we anticipated. My wife usually has a Vegetable Jalfrezi when she has an Indian and although this was not on the menu, they were able to provide this dish with no problems at all. My Vegetable Dopiaza was tasty and spiced just right. As I say, just good honest curry and worth a visit.

Spoce merchant looked really good. The hole experience was okay and some of the food was good. The tikka masala sauce was knock out. The lamb was well more like mutton. Dry and tough.

The service the night we went was below par. We were seated without the offer of drinks. The time to order drinks was long. The time to starters were long, and the wait to mains was long with only 6 tables full. Trying to re-order drinks was a tests of patience.

With some meals being below par on the rest and average service, the whole experience was a three.
