“Great friendly pub!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013 via mobile

Really enjoy visiting this venue, particularly on a Tuesday night when they host an open mic event, though it can be a little crowded. Friendly welcoming staff and locals, have never felt intimidated by locals or unwelcome here (unlike some other venues in Glastonbury, like the Arthur and the Crown). Really enjoyable night out and excellent and different curry selections available.

“Wonderful curries”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

Came here with my partner and family as i had heard a lot of good reviews about their curry nights. Upon walking in we were greeted by a roaring fire, particularly great as it was chucking it down. Anyway, the staff were very friendly and attentive never once did i feel like i was in need of anything. The food was wonderful a great selection and tasted lovely, a great fusion of flavors and not greasy in the slightest. Overall for the cost i think this is good food and very reasonably priced. I understand that the curries available rotate their region of origin, so i shall certainly be back again to taste a different part of the world.

“Food poor - we won't be back”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

Now this is the final time we have eaten here. Tried the curries last time and were totally underwhelmed and this time we tried the other menu. I asked for medium steak and got it well done, under cooked chips and half dressed salad. Huge disappointment! I paid £15 for it!!!
Mr M had the mixed grill - although HIS steak was just right -medium rare - he was unimpressed with the rest.
Service was very attentive but the food certainly IS NOT AWARD WINNING. Unless of course its the award for the most underwhelming in Glastonbury.

Two strikes and yer out, I'm afraid!

“Very average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2012 via mobile

Not a huge menu, nothing to shout about. Staff as helpful as expected, food very mediocre, shame just afew tweaks & could be very nice indeed. Not a bad place, the walk past the local pubs on a Friday night after the meal wasn't what I expected, very rude drunken local fellas gorping at my wife.
Would eat there again, lunch time perhaps!

“Great food at good prices.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2012

Whist the shower was temperamental at best and the bathroom floor unswept around the edges the room was overall pleasant enough and I would stay again. The breakfast was very good.
The food in the evening was wonderful with each of our large group having something different and all commenting on the quality. The currys were exceptional and the menu caters for all tastes not just curry lovers
The staff were friendly, courteous and patient.
i look forward to eating there again.
