An out of the way pub that specializes in Indian cuisine! Family atmosphere with tasty fare. A pleasant break from typical pub grub. Give 'em a try when in the area. You won't be disappointed.

We had an absolutely fabulous meal there last night - the best Thai food Iwe've had in a very long time. A great little pub off the beaten tack, will most certainly be going back again. Superb!
