“We'll be back!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2011

We called in to this bistro as it is local to us and under new ownership (I think). They were advertising a Curry Night which was £8 for a meal in the bar (a limited choice of chicken korma, prawn jalfrezi or sweet potato masala).

We're vegetarian so opted for Sweet Potato & Spinach Masala (which came like the other choices with rice, naan bread and a drink of your choice), and it was delicious. OH had a pint of real ale (very well kept and easily up to standards demanded by CAMRA) and I had a glass of wine.

We both thought that this was exceptional value, plus the bar lady and waitress were both very pleasant and welcoming. It's an ideal place to eat when you want something quick, simple and well-cooked and want a night off from cooking for yourself.

We'll definately be back again.
