Great, great, great. !!! We have eaten here numerous times over the Summer 'season' with various friends and have never been disappointed. We have recommended Spice Bank to others who have then eaten here and they too have loved the food and service. Always a warm welcome on arrival, great service, always polite waiters who are more than happy to... More

Well run and friendly staff. Quirky place with original wood panel walls. Reasonably priced and well presented food. Our curry was hotter than we are used to but enjoyed very much.

We had a good take away meal. They gave us some free poppadums and pickles because we had to wait a few minutes longer than they had estimated. Enjoy.

Ate here twice on our golf trip. Excellent food, cooked fresh, and very good service. Called in both times on the off chance, and got seated straight away, even though Saturday night was busy.

We went last Thursday evening, without first booking, & had not problem finding a table. We enjoyed the meal, which was hot when it arrived, & found our waiter to be very polite, friendly & attentive. We certainly would go again. The building is a listed former bank, built during the 1920's in an art & crafts style. With two... More

Friendly staff , the food was good but we went for the advertised Sunday buffet to find that it wasn't available , understandable I suppose as it was at the end of the season but is advertised from April to September (doesn't say inclusive) Food was good though .

Having read the reviews about poor service at the weekend or bank holiday, we were hoping it wouldn't be a problem on a Wednesday night, and we were right, only half full, I could see how a full restaurant would be a little crowded, but there was plenty of room and the service was excellent, the food portions were a...

Visited for a meal with husband and grand-daughter and her friend, while staying nearby. Every aspect of the service was slow - slow with menus, with drinks, with food, with plate-clearing - even with providing the bill! Two of our group ordered fish dishes (£14 each) which, while tasty, contained very little fish, and added to this, the makhani dish... More
