I'm a little surprised by some of the reviews and comments on Tripadvisor for the Bengal Cottage. My father and I are curry-a-holics. I travel a lot and reguarly enjoy the best that London, Birmingham, Edinburgh has to offer. When home (near Wooler) I reguarly get takeaway from the Bengal Cottage, with a couple of sit-down meals a year there too.
To get a takeaway from The Bengal Cottage is, for me, 30miles of back roads - an hour long round trip. Depsite having tandooris closer in Wooler, Alnwick, Rothbury and Berwick - it's worth it every time. The curry is of a consistently excellent level, the staff are friendly and professional. The prices are very reasonable, especially considering that portion sizes are bigger than at most restaurants. Despite the long drive, we go at least once a month and even drove through a Northumbrian blizzard once to get one (that was a 5 hour round trip), with roads coming up as rivers swelled over.
Absolutely excellent curry - very very highly recommended and so much better than anywhere else in the neighbourhood!
