This converted pub came recommended (albeit by friends who do not really like curries) so hopes were set.
The dining room is in effect a giant conservatory - with a plastic roof backing onto the car park. Dim and heated by an assortment of gas heaters it was to say the least pretty basic and devoid of anything resembling quality.
The service started well - we had a reserve table but then it was as if we were forgotten, 15 minutes before any enquiry as to what we might want to drink or poppadum's to pass the time.
Hey ho - we finally get to order what is expensive (ish) basic Asian cuisine, still it will taste good? Err no, the poppadums had been fried is some of the dirtiest oil imaginable and had picked up a very unpleasant taste, the home made dips were little better - lime chutney with peas and carrots no less.
Mains were the true disaster, small and almost entirely without ingredients - chicken Jalfrezi consisting of a small quantity of chicken and lots of course cut onion and some standard bought in by the bucket load brown sauce. I have in the 100's of curry houses I have visited found anywhere offer a worse example than the Drovers Arms and that includes £3.00 a plate versions in Birmingham. Shameful.
The rice was again a small bowl of sticky over cooked short grain rice.
Summary - Avoid, service is poor and the food is clearly created for as little outlay as possible.
