Went there for a diner after a training session, had a wonderful dish as main course where they had the curry inside a bread like dough. Very tasteful! Also the starter was very good, although I expected something different from the description compared to the name of the dish.

Been here a bunch of times but not for a while. Unique venue - barn conversion with log fire. Delightful restaurant with Indian music playing. Inexperienced young wait staff. Did their best. Dad ordered lamb but chicken arrived! Didn't want to cause a fuss or wait for another batch to be cooked. Fairly expensive for a midweek after work curry... More

Not being an Indian cuisine specialist I did enjoy the food and decor in this restaurant. Loved the open fire on a cold winter's evening.

The surroundings were very nice, the staff were very attentive, the presentation and quality of the food was fair but the whole visit was spoilt because of how cold the premises were which consequently made our food go very cold quite quickly. Sadly the staff or management were unresponsive to the points that we had raised. Our bill was in... More

The food and service were very good for all of us - 11 in the party. The food was hot and tasty and there was plenty of it. Service was good - obviously a wait for preparation but it all arrived together and was piping hot.

We come here maybe a few times a year only because of the distance and with having young kids, but every time we are greeted at the door by the friendly staff food arrives in good time and always tastes great.

Thank James S
