On 1st impression from the outside it didn't look much, however, the restaurant and bar side are steeped in Gurkha/ Burmese & Indonesian history and culture. The staff were so polite and welcoming the food was absolutely amazing, you have a choice of what you would class as run of the mill Indian cuisine then scattered through the menu is... More

The staff are very welcoming and served us quickly. The food is very tasty and a little different from a usual 'Indian' menu which lots of Nepalese dishes. Kronenburg was only £3 a pint!

Ok, here goes! The room was warm and the big bath was great after a long day. However, the TV was broken but working, there was a stain on the bedding, the sockets were loose on the wall and the pat testing was 3 years out of date. As a vegetarian breakfast normally consists of a full English with veggie... More

If you ask for the hot curry, as a few of us did, it is pretty firey but very tasty. Good beer. Good service. The manager was very helpful, brought our cake... More

Really love this place, easily the best curry house in the surrounding area. Everything is fresh and tasty. Been her in a mix of people all ordering different meals and no one has been disappointed. A lovely setting, nice beer garden backing on to fields and a small but ample bar.

Thank Matthew T
