There seems to be more indian restaurants popping up in former public houses and defunct roadside cafes than ever before. Testament to the popularity of asian cuisine and the gritty determination of the proprieters to make a go of it! Bengal is no exception. Based in what used to be the Staffordshire Knot public house, just off the Hanford roundabout, this converted local has been tastefully decorated and converted into a stylish restaurant.
I've eaten there with my wife (on several occasions) and recently with a group of 30 for a set meal which we arranged specially. The bengali chef knows what he is doing. This is fine quality, well prepared food that takes traditional anglo/indian dishes - and makes them something special, however many people are sat around the table. I've never been disappointed, and neither were the group of people we took along!
The waiting staff are prompt and friendly. They regularly host charity and fundraising events and are very community and customer focused. Look out for the regular cooking demonstration evenings. The takeaway menu is the same fine quality, but slightly cheaper. There is a private seating area for around 20 people if required.
The only down side is that they don't take debit cards - so bring cash!
