This is a very rare restaurant in that all the food appears to be cooked from scratch and it is extremely good. Looking forward to the next visit after the refurb is complete.

What can I say - this was once a popular charming country pub. Now it is a no-frills curry house. Not a great selection of food or drinks. Décor very average. Oh well.

Explanation of heading. The restaurant is in a beautiful old timbered building. Although I personally hate the out side painted colour, inside its lovely. The New bit is that curry is being cooked in this old building. The food is great, and very well cooked, the staff are friendly, nothing is too much trouble. 3 big bonuses, one there is... More

Really excellent meal, couldn't fault at all, such lovely flavours in the dishes - everything tasted really fresh and not over oily as some Indian restaurants can. Shame it was so quiet tho. But service was good and we will definitely revisit when in the area again

After looking at the reviews online we decided to visit here as we were camping nearby. I was surprised by how quiet it was for a Saturday night, however the food was delicious. We both ordered off the special menu and the food was great, we had a Lamb and a Venison dish, a side each, a rice dish each... More

For a slightly different experience of an old pub with an Indian restaurant in it. Food lovely, staff very nice and accommodating. They also do a take away option and if you collect it you get a discount.. Well worth a visit.
