Our New Year's trip for two families staying st a local cottage brought us to the Shalimar for an evening out. 4 adults and 6 children (10-15 years of age in range) were warmly welcomed and ably assisted. All levels of spiciness/ curiosity of cuisine/ intolerances were responded to with careful attention and encouragement. We all enjoyed our various meals... More
