I love the School of Spice. They have a bar you can sit at, read the paper, The Times, and have a pint of Kingfisher, as they prepare your food to suit your timescale. The staff are very friendly and the menu is refreshingly varied...More

I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant. The food was amazing as were the waiting staff. The history of the building is fabulous, an Old school, hence the restaurant name. Disabled parking just outside on the street. I will definitely be back soon. Fabulous!

Ever since the Shapla closed we've been looking for a replacement local Indian and it looks like school of spice could be the one. On a quiet weekday night we received excellent service, good quality food and portions that were just right, i.e.not too large...More

Popped in the other week with a couple of friends, hadn’t been for a while but was pleasantly surprised to see they have given the place a refurb, most notably on the seating which is very smart. Food was spot on and good service, and...More
