First time we've ever eaten at this little gem. Chicken Tikka wrap and Shish wrap are delicious with plenty of meat. This was a recommendation by someone we know and will definitely be returning. An unassuming looking pub from the outside but great food inside!

Just visited the pub for the first time, it's clean but basic in terms of the surrounding but the mixed grill (small for two people is sufficient) was good value for money. Fine for a simple meal out without any trimmings.

The food here is absolutely world class I must say, a little disappointed with the waiting time but it was well worth it for the quality. The atmosphere is always buzzing and lively, although it is known to get a bit rowdy on pool night.

Situated on the edge of the Balti Triangle this lively pub does a roaring trade. Whilst 'balti' is on the menu, it's best known for it's gargantuan mixed grills. So, whilst I love my authentic balti, occasionally I have a longing for a sizzling mixed...More

This was a 12-minute walk from my hotel and glad I made the trip. Even with its peculiar location, the interior is nice and friendly. The restaurant is in the back and you can order or they can deliver food to you. I had a...More
