I stayed at the hotel, so had an evening meal, and breakfast here. I like so Indian food, but normally stick with the more common types, korma etc. The menu looked very interesting and we had the full four courses, all of which were fantastic! Really tasty, filling and enjoyable.

Fantastic food. Not too busy and looks a bit neglected by the locals, but wow! The food is incredible, so delicious! Would definitely come back and recommend to friends.

I'd been meaning to try Raffles for a long time and finally did a few months ago. We were very impressed by the food, it was truly delicious. We had the Indian mee goreng and the laksa lemak to start, both were great! The laksa was so tasty and spicy. Our mains were the traditional clay pot and the udang... More

Was turned away due to a staff member not doing there job and booking me in despite me calling up the week before and making the booking. I had travelled from Coventry so not as if it's just down the road, absolutely appalled that there was nothing they could do to accommodate me and I only wanted afternoon tea for... More

Dear Miss Rankin I have just been able to speak to the member of staff by phone. We are sorry for what has happened as you clearly had booked but it had not been put onto our diary. As there were no other customers that afternoon, the kitchen had closed early and there were unable to get the chef back... More

We decided to eat here because we'd recently been to the Far East and had visited Malaysia and loved the food. We didn't realise that the restaurant was actually in the hotel we had booked a room for the night. I understand that it was originally a little further down the road, but was now located in the hotel. This... More

Having checked on the internet for the exact address of Raffles there were, in fact, three!! On arriving, a notice on the door said the restaurant was a three minute walk away but no arrow to indicate in which direction!! We were shown to a very drab, uninspiring room with wicker tables which were none too clean. A pot of... More

A group of 7 of us from work went for afternoon tea. It cost us £8 a head - the food was absolutely delicious - see photos - love the savouries mixed in with the sandwiches and cakes. Raffles has moved down the road to new premises a couple of months ago (part of Peacock hotel) so further down the... More
