The buffet food is consistently delicious and all dishes are entirely different. A good range. The bread is very tasty. A good range of local ales to wash the food down with. The grade II listed building is dark and atmospheric.

We turned up on a Friday night and it was clear that the tasting banquet (rather than a la carte) was the best value. A nice selection of dishes and plenty of them. There is a cheaper children's price for the banquet. The nan bread...More

Having driven past this place for almost 10 years we had an excuse (aka a visitor) to eventually visit them. I guess our previous reluctance stems from my ignorance as to Persian food, despite being in the food trade for over forty years, Persian food...More

Had the tasting menu, which is <£20 per person, and it was excellent and more than we could eat. Don’t understand why this place is such a well kept secret

Persian influenced fusion Cuisine - first for the county - at the elegant Black and White, timber framed, building that dates back to the 13th Century; contemporary atmosphere, with a present-day décor, pleasing to the eye. Cuisine renowned for its elaborate rice dishes, delicious kababs, nourishing soups and hearty stews. Persians delicately flavour their food with herbs, spices and dried fruits. A variety of nan-like breads supplement rice.
