I came in on Thursday to try the new curry night. I wasn't disappointed! I had a jalfrezi and I couldn't fault it and they couldn't do any more for us. Definitely will be returning.

Sorry for late reply, we parked in the square opposite. I don't remember if there was any designated parking for the Inn.
