Quite rushed, the staff were ok, but we found them a little distant and unhelpful, the food was ok, slow service food only luke warm. Waited so long for someone to come and take our order for coffee and dessert we didn't bother. A little disappointed we think.

“Away from the elements”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

On a typical cold rainy March night, we decided to cheer ourselves up and go for an indian, so we went to Lancers. the food was fine and good sized portions, and staff were helpfull. the only issue i had, and i only noticed it as i stood up to leave, was that the accompanyments for the popadoms, were stood under the bar sink in large containers with no lids on. this is not good practise. lookinto this lancers please. but apart from that, and it being a bit pricey, as Bawtry is, we enjoyed our meal.

“Forget this awfull restaurant”
Reviewed March 28, 2013 via mobile

Forget this dreadful restaurant. For some reason everyone believes that restaurants in Bawtry are good - these are people without any taste at all! The staff were dismissive, food was boring, absolutely tasteless - this is the worst Indian restaurant I have ever eaten in. It is over priced and descriptive. I ordered Balti! What arrived was a pink tasteless mess. Save your money - avoid Bawtry and go to Sheffield or Doncaster! This pretentious mess is unacceptable.

“Good curry, shame about the waiters!”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

We have visited a couple of times now. The food is good, and a pretty good range on the menu.

But the waiters are so unfriendly! Quite honestly, it's as if they don't want you there at all. We have been hurried along at both meals, which is a bit of a shame. Especially when you consider the amount we spend in there.

We said the first time that we wouldn't go back again, and only did because the Dower House was closed.

Such a shame, because the food is good.

“Great Food”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

Decided to treat my Mrs and have a midweek night out to try and dispell those mid winter blues(February). So after a few beers around Bawtry(the Ship had great real ales), we visited the Lancers for a curry to round off the evening. The food was excellent and portions more than enough(so much so we asked the waiter to put some in a container to take home). One of the best provincial curry's i have had in a long time. Decor is a little bit dated, but the food was so good that this would be nit picking in the extreme..I would definitely return here.
