Please note - I could not award 3 and a half stars which is what I think it deserves. It's just not quite 4.

We ordered 3 different dishes but they all appeared the same - colour and texture. Gives you the impression that there is one sauce and they add different bits to it after. Still, was very tasty.

The mushroom pilau didn't have much mushroom and the sag bhaji lacked any presentation. The vegetable pilau looked and tasted great.

Toilet facilities were very acceptable.

More seating upstairs makes the restaurant bigger than you expect which is good. The service was okay but we were not given the expected exit. Basially as we left, we were ignored. There was no "Thank you" or "see you again".

Little better than average but not as good as Very Good.

We called here for a family meal whilst in the area on holiday. The menu choice and the service was excellent. Andrew the manager looked after us well and made sure we had an enjoyable experience overall. Would recommend and if we are in the area again would definitely visit.

We happened upon The Valley Connection quite by accident when a local resident suggested it when we asked for a recommendation of someplace to eat. What a delightful find! The food was delectable. The service was wonderful; we were treated more like honored guests. If I ever have the pleasure of visiting Hexam again, I will certainly take a meal here.

My Grandson says it is Brilliant food and very friendly service. This restaurant opens at 5.30 so if you are dining with a small one it is a good place to go. We were there when it opened and this was not a problem. Puris were delicious and Kulfis so good one of us had two!!
