This is my Favourite Indian restaurant in the area. The food is top class and plentiful and the staff are friendly and attentive. I can't understand the bad reviews on here, I am a hobby Curry cook and have eaten Indian food all over the world. Lancers is easily in my top 20 in the UK.

We began our meal with poppadoms and a pickle tray. The mango chutney was a bit runny and the raita lacked flavour but the other pickles were tasty. We then had huge mixed kebabs which were practically overflowing on the plate. It consisted of the largest onion bhaji I've ever seen which was crisp and tasty, a flavoursome lamb kebab... More

We were looking for somewhere to eat on a Sunday evening and most places in Bawtry had stopped doing food. It was 9.30pm. We assumed we would also be turned away from Lancers but they welcomed us in. The service was excellent. In the past I have always had a curry at Dower House, across the road in Bawtry, but... More

I always chose to have Indian from Lancers, both takeaway and eating in the restaurant. Food is always excellent. Quick happy service, have tried lots of their dishes but would recommend the sizzler chicken if eating in. Great Indian.

If you order prawn on puri you generally know what to expect. What arrived wasn't expected and didn't taste particularly good. It wasn't unpleasant, just sweet and a bit sickly. The lamb that followed was OK but had more potato than lamb. Even the draft Cobra was missable. The whole experience was sub mediocre and not going to be repeated.

So I went back to Lancers, just in case I'd been unlucky the previous time. I decided to order a Chicken Tikka Masala, which I thought would be a safe bet considering the curry I had last time wasn't very nice. Unfortunately this one was also rather poor - I know that CTM is a British curry, but it couldn't... More

Enjoyed a delicious Lamb Bryani. They serve large portions, so one bowl of rice is plenty for two. Service was good.

Lovely little Indian in the centre of Bawtry - friendly, clean and great food. Love the chicken dishes, never disappointed! Service is always exceptional and they always remember your name and what you like to drink - this is what I call great customer service ✅ Well with a visit✅

We were recommended Lancers by a friend, after reading some of the feedback we were dubious, I can only praise the restaurant the service was friendly and the staff were more than happy to answer any questions about the food on the menu. The pickle tray had something we had never tried before and when we asked about it they... More

Visited on a Friday evening and told we couldn't have a table until 7pm. A little strange as the restaurant was only about 1/3 full. The food was just average, not the cheapest. My wife had the strangest Prawn Puri ever, not many prawns which were soaked in what can only be described as a poor Korma sauce. Main courses... More
