What makes this unique is the table service and dishes being brought fresh to your table rather than a 'help yourself' approach. The food was wonderful, the... More

Not the first time I've been, but was so excellent I felt I should review this time around! Had the Sunday buffet deal which is around £15 a head for all you can eat. This isn't your standard buffet as all food is made to order as if it was off the menu. Food was lovely as usual, and service... More

Visited The Spice Lodge for the first time and received a warm welcome. The quality of the food was excellent and the service attentive but not intrusive. Thoroughly recommend this restaurant for its hospitality and tasty, well presented food.

I went with friends as we had heard and read good things. However the meal was mediocre at best. They do not have Tikka on the menu so I was going to ask what they would suggest but the waiter was quick to say they could make it for me. But the meal I received can only be described as... More

Lovely first visit to The Spice Lodge at the recommendation of our friends. Beautiful building and dining room and staff all very attentive. Particular highlight were the starter dishes and naan bread, but we enjoyed all our choices. Made to feel very welcome and would definitely return.

This is a brilliant fusion restaurant Indian/Thai. you can have mixed set meals of Indian and Thai or do what we could and ask the staff to mix some starters and mains they will ask what you like and then deliver a sensational mix of food. This is a superb restaurant do try it great food brilliant staff.
