So this is a strange review for restaurant- as i didn't actually eat there yesterday! My brother and sister in law visited spontaneously and we decided on an Indian meal. It was early we hadn't booked, Saturday evening! Id been to India cottage some years ago and had enjoyed so chose there. Really pleased on entry with the beautiful atmospheric outside dining area. It was already busy and only 6.30 so not looking hopeful for a table- but we could do takeaway. We met the owner and asked if there was a table. He came back and said sorry and we were thinking that was that but then he mentioned his Sisters restaurant in town and promptly rang to see if a table- there was. Great. Now the cynical in you might think- well helping to keep money in the family- but i like to think of it as someone going that bit extra for someone! We had a banter about sibling rivalry and that we had to make sure we came back to his restaurant for a meal. He was busy but not too busy to be helpful and humorous. I think we definitely will. By the way- his sisters place- the food was delicious, service and banter with his sister good and lovely environment! Thanks

We arrived on time for our Saturday evening treat and we were greeted warmly and taken promptly to our table. Our drinks order was taken along with a side order of poppadums. 10minutes passed and both arrived at our table. Approx 15mins later our main course was ordered, along with a request for some water to accompany the meal. 1hr later we are still waiting for our food and the designated driver was gasping for water. A passing waitress was collared and 'hey Presto ' water appeared 5mins later. Another round of drinks was ordered and a gentle prod was given to the waiter ref our food order. 10mins later our food arrived and I was dissatisfied with portion sizes, 4 kingprawns in a kingprawn curry is poor. On busier bookings I expect better service.

I came here for a friends surprise birthday meal . . driven past many times, but first time here and WOW!! This restaurant is truly beautiful, we were sat outside under the covered area . . where there were candles and low lights and have to say the dining experience was just stunning! The food and the service were as well without fault, gorgeous food and staff very attentive!! I look forward to returning, thank you to all the staff . and to the owners . . you've nailed it!!

Went for a meal at India Cottage on Friday night with my partner and parents. Service was polite and friendly and food was great. Only downfall is that the service was slightly slow, however I guess you'd come to expect this on a busy Friday night. Will definitely be back.
