Maybe these difficult times have taken their toll on the staff, but sadly this came across as rude and blunt. Food was ok but nothing special and out of proportion to the bill (which had a service charge added on top - a bugbear of...More

Was able to book a table for four at the Bengal Lancer at short notice on a Saturday night which was great, and not always easy in Covid times. The staff all had see-through masks on to keep them safe, and tables were distanced far...More
