After reading the reviews I had high hopes. But I was sadly a little underwhelmed. The car park and back of building all looked a little like a scrap yard, walking in it felt very friendly and cosy. We were the last table to be...More

Dear Gary H I'm equally disappointed by your review and what I find even more disturbing is that you have not singled out one particular aspect of the food itself, which you were underwhelmed with! May I ask when you visited us, as we have...More

Persian influenced fusion Cuisine - first for the county - at the elegant Black and White, timber framed, building that dates back to the 13th Century; contemporary atmosphere, with a present-day décor, pleasing to the eye. Cuisine renowned for its elaborate rice dishes, delicious kababs, nourishing soups and hearty stews. Persians delicately flavour their food with herbs, spices and dried fruits. A variety of nan-like breads supplement rice.
