Despite being busy, service was polite and timely and we didn't have a long wait for our food. Our table was a bit on the wobbly side so be careful! Poppadoms... More

When we went in I thought 'this is nice'. The man who greeted us was very polite. We had gone there for the buffet, which we had read about on their leaflet, but they apparently stopped doing it ages ago. We got a new leaflet and sure enough, they had blacked out the bit about the buffet, and the bit... More

We visited this restaurant several times during our stay at a local campsite, to collect takeaway meals. Having toured Dorset, Devon and then Cornwall this restaurant's food was by far the best! My hubby had a Chicken Pharl on the first night, the next night a Chicken Chilli Massala and another night a Chicken Jalfrezi, along with the usual pilau... More

Thank you for your review. Im sorry but unfortunately everyone is not happy go lucky every single day, just because someone seemed miserable it doesnt mean it should be aired online for the world to see. Everyone has good days and bad days, we are not robots. 'From the miserable girl' More
