Popped in with my partner after being away on a course and more importantly because it was her birthday. Lovely meal great service great staff. Highly recommended never took anyone there to date that has not enjoyed it.

An absolute awesome place, the staff are second to none, they will bend over backwards to help you in any way they can.

The first impression was "this place is way out of civilisation" when we arrived back after our day at the races it was "WOW"

The restaurant was full, the bar area was full of people waiting to eat and that is an awesome sign

We sat down to eat, the service was fantastic, the food was the best i have ever tasted, this was a curry to die for and then some.

After a great nights sleep in a very comfy bed next stop was breakfast, this was perfection

Well worth the money (to cheap) and will deffo be back for more

We've often passed this place on way back from the forest, decided to give it a try, wasn't dissapointed. The staff were very friendly and on the ball, food was excellent and very tasty. Would recommend a visit. Plan to go back soon.Located just outside Chepstow towards Lydney

I have recently stayed a this inn. It is easily in reach of Lydney by car, and is close to the Forrest of Dean. The room I was given faced the road which conveyed average traffic, but was not noisy. The bed was comfortable, wi fi available, television, tea making, and room service if needed to change linnen, towels etc, and food in the room if needed. The wardrobe was very small for a double room, but was the largest that would fit. Staff were very pleasant and owners mixed in with the guests. Food, 5 star rating was good, served hot and freshly prepared, However the menue was limited to gurka preparations, no English food except at breakfast and must say that was excellant. All round a very nice place to stay for the price, and I would stay there again when visiting lydney..

We had a big family lunch here today to say goodbye to my nephew before he heads off to Uni. We all really enjoyed it and will be going back there again for sure. Even the 'off the menu' hot hot pickle that was given to my father on special request was fantastic. The owner who is an ex Gurkha spent time socialising with us and it brought back memories for both my mother and I from our travels in Nepal. The food is excellent, Nepalese/Indian, clean tasting, healthy and fresh. I had Narayani Prawn Special as i don't eat meat and it was just perfectly cooked. Very calm and gentle service and atmosphere. Just wonderful !

I love this restaurant. We used to live in the village and would visit often. Recently we were back in town for a couple of days, so we chose to stay here.

The food is excellent. I have described it to friends as "like Indian, only fresher". For starters, the Chhoyola and the Sekuwa are excellent. For mains, try dishes like the Everest lamb, the hill-boy special or Himalayan chicken. Nan breads are light and crisp, truly delicious.

Having now stayed, I can say the rooms are spotless, though perhaps a little basically furnished e.g. our double room had just one bedside table, leaving me nowhere to put my glasses.

Another pleasure was breakfast. It is so rare to have a breakfast cooked to order, and to sit where we could hear it sizzling away was a joy.

Overall, a lovely place, which I am happy to recommend.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter.
