Description: Nestled in Barnard Castle's beautiful ancient artisan quarter, below the Market Cross is a charming, inviting, comfortable restaurant offering sophisticated, vibrantly flavoured, subcontinental cuisine of real style and taste. The menu features authentic, traditional favourites as well as creative dishes all made with the freshest ingredients. For those with an eye towards light, healthier eating we also offer our famous low calorie (yet authentic Indian) option of all our curries.The Merchant attracts a knowledgeable and loyal clientele who come back time and again for the fine food with exceptional friendly service. The Bengal Merchant is one of Barnard Castle's treasures and a perfect choice for exotic meals with friends & loved ones in a warm, cosy and romantic setting.For those with something to celebrate we also have a separate, newly refurbished function room too.

We are caravanners who visit Barnard Castle once a year, and we've been to this restaurant a couple of times now and had a take away. The food is extremely flavoursome with a good and discernable balance of herbs and spices coming through; in short, none of that bitter taste you get in so many Indian restaurants where they clearly think chucking plenty of chilli or something hot in there will do! The staff are friendly, attentive, and you can have a bit of a laugh with them. We have never been disappointed, so do go there if you're in Barney.

We have been eating at this fantastic Indian Restaurant since it opened & it doesn't fail to satisfy every time! Great food, great friendly service, in a great setting, what more could you ask for! Make a day of it by visiting Barnard Castle for the afternoon & then finish off the day with a delicious meal!

My husband and I had dinner here recently. We were on a short break in the area. We live in the West of Scotland and are devotees of Indian food. I am vegetarian and my husband is the original carnivore, so we struggle to find a restuarant which suits us both. This was the best curry we have had for a very long time. I would highly recommend this restuarant. The food and service were superb.
