We we staying at Dairymans Cottage B&B over Easter and this place was recommended to us. We walked here and felt like we surely must be going the wrong way but we were following the directions we were given. Eventually found the mill and we were right - it is in the middle of nowhere but definitely worth the walk!... More

When I moved to the area around 5 years ago this was the 'go to' place for good curry. It was always busy, had great service and the food was excellent. Unfortunately I feel that things have gone a bit down hill have we have been disappointed the last 3 times we have been. In July 2016 we attended with... More

Our regular Friday treat never fails to supply a great tasting Indian meal either in the restaurant or takeaway

Went for a take-away tonight, with a friend staying over. All the curries tasted the same and were bland. A real let down, full but not pleasantly so. Shan't be re-visiting.

This is a great Asian/Bangladeshi restaurant. As you approach the old windmill, which houses the Spice Mill, interest is piqued - it's doesn't look like your average 'Indian Restaurant' at all and you somehow know you're going to get more that just an average meal. And this is confirmed when you enter - a warm welcome, a cosy, circular lounge... More

Food was delicious, but service not good at all. We waited an hour for our main course. Staff were friendly but not really on the ball.

We used to go weekly and we loved this place, but last year we were very disappointed in the slow service on two occasions and in the food. We stopped going but last Saturday couldn't get into any of our new favourites so thought we would give it another try. Wish we hadn't bothered . We had to complain about... More

We raved about the spice mill and took friends from a neighbouring village at the beginning of December. The food was not as good standard as previous visits. Very small amounts of meat in dishes and meat was dry and rice tasted like it had been reheated. Pity as the staff are wonderful and very accommodating and gracious with kids.

Came for a meal for first time since the restaurant reopened after the fire. Not very busy, lacked atmosphere. Seemed that staff were more interested in getting you to order more drinks and persuade you to have more poppadoms than you actually want! Definitely felt badgered over drinks and bill charged for more poppadoms than we had ordered. Portions are... More
