Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We enjoyed a fantastic Easter Sunday afternoon meal here. The location and venue are ideal. The manager and staff were warm and welcoming, making us feel very much at home. The service was ideally paced being unhurried and accomodating. The food was exceptional, perfectly spiced...and presented with a fine attention to detail. I would strongly recommend this restaurant and look forward to our next visit.More

My husband used to come to this pub 60 years ago when he came from Swindon with his father to fish the nearby river. They were able to buy a fishing permit for the day in the pub. Today, we returned for his 75th birthday....Obviously, the pub looks a bit different from how it looked 60 years ago but it has been very sympathetically renovated and extended and is decorated in a pleasing style. The food was lovely. We are both very fond of Indian food and each enjoyed a 3 course meal. The dishes were not heavy or too much, as can be the case. It is not often that we eat 3 courses these days. We will definitely be returning. We had booked our table in advance. Given the review before mine, it seems a good idea to book for the evening, especially with a large party. Booking online is easy.More

The management, notably the restaurant manager Foyez Rahman, fell significantly short of expectations during our lunch visit today with a party of 10, including children. We experienced an unparalleled level of hostility. The restaurant managers approach was extremely rude, demeaning, and condescending. Upon merely inquiring...about the availability for dining and space, he curtly informed us that the restaurant was at capacity and demanded that we 'Go home.' His conduct took a more troubling turn when he inappropriately touched my shoulder, emphasizing that the restaurant was fully booked.His persistent demands and inappropriate behavior were both shocking and completely out of line, reflecting a blatant disregard for the fundamental aspects of hospitality, which is rooted in respecting and prioritizing customers.More

Would definitely recommend visiting this lovely restaurant. Stayed in the water park just up the road and it’s a must if you’re staying in that area. Food was faultless and the staff were great. Visited as a family.

Booked for the Valentines menu. Welcome glass of Prosecco, popadoms, then a choice of the veg or non veg menu taster dishes, we chose the non veg and thoroughly enjoyed every dish, followed up with a dessert for two 🥰❤️. We were given a scratch...card live token which we unveiled at the end of our meal … only to find that it was a free meal token for both our meals. A lovely meal with a wonderful surprise at the end. Other scratch card tokens had also been handed to all guests, for free bottle of wine, 10% off, etc.More

We had an amazing meal here last night. Staff were incredibly friendly and welcoming - there was a slight mix up with one of our mains but they resolved it quickly and could not have been any more apologetic. The food was fantastic and although...it was quiet when we arrived, it was really busy with a brilliant atmosphere. We’re staying nearby on holiday and are just disappointed we don’t live closer as we’d definitely become regulars! Would highly recommend and will definitely return when we’re in the area again.More

Went here for a Birthday treat for my Partner and what a nice find, we was looking for a Indian restaurant in the Cotswold water park area and found this Inn which served Indian fare and we were not disappointed the food was Excellent and...the Staff was very friendly and helpful, reasonably priced and went the extra mile to accommodate my Partners Tomato allergy by cooking her Korma from scratch without the Tomato base. There was a nice ambience about the place and we had a very pleasant evening. Thank you.More

All round excellence. Arrived at 6.45 for a 7pm booking expecting to find it quiet but wow! It was absolutely buzzing with a happy vibe. So glad we booked because by 7.30 it was packed with barely a table free. The staff were amazing with...advice offered on what to choose from a refreshingly different menu of Anglo Asian fusion as well as traditional Asian dishes. I had a delicious lamb and potato curry which was perfectly spiced for me. My wife had a wonderful salmon / salad dish which was cooked to perfection. Prices were very reasonable and drinks choices plentiful. Nice and local and our new favourite place. See you soon as we’re intrigued to try your take on Sunday lunch.More

Hi there, sorry that our website wasn’t clear for you, our food is an Anglo Indian fusion, so you can get all your traditional curries and Indian dishes, but also some dishes with a twist such as nan burgers, open flatbreads... More
