Not the restaurant it used to be. The food was mediocre as was the service. There was no sign of an Indian influence in the menu, so I wonder if there is a new chef and possibly a new owner.

We ate off the special June menu. Very reasonably priced for the quality of the food. Service was superb. Couldn't fault in any way.

Last night I tried to book a table for next week, for the Indian Food Festival. I dialled the number on the flyer and the phone rang for ages without being picked up. I thought they could be busy and phoned back after a few minutes, this time someone on the other end of the line disconnected my call. Given that this is a hotel and the number went to the reception desk, I am appalled! After discussing the matter with the other members of our party, it was unanimously agreed to give our money to a restaurant that values our custom!

We visited last night on the first day of the Indian Food Festival being run throughout January, inspired by their apparently award winning chef. Have to say we were very impressed, firstly by the fantastic setting in this grand old place, and of course by the food.

This is a fairly set menu for £30 per head, starting off with a glass of sparkling and some homemade bhaji type appetizers, followed by poppadoms and delicious homemade Indian breads and some of the best chutneys we have had.

There was a choice of starters, which were very different from the type you get in this area, including our two of tamarind mackerel and curried prawns with chorizo, both of which were excellent.

Mains were fairly safe, served in a buffet style so you could try all dishes including vegetarian options, with a more Moroccan style lamb and apricot dish standing out.

Deserts gave a good ending, back to the more unusual but tasty dishes, and coffee in their spacious guest lounge was a nice way to finish.

Living in Bromsgrove but having not eaten here before, we were very pleased, and at around £75 for the two of us this was good value for the amount and variety of food we had, although perhaps more than other places in the area so more one for special occasions. Overall I would recommend this for anyone looking for something different to try while the festival is on.

Loved everything about the Grafton. We went for a cousin's wedding and the whole affair was splendid, tho tricky to get a drink at the bar before the dinner, so could get thirsty!!
