What's happened. I've used this Indian for years and others have popped up and opened and still have been my favourite. Recently the food has been so bad. I always take away as I find that in Indian restaurants the walking up and down past your table a many times just gets in my nerves. So following last nights third... More

I brought my wife here for a curry. The food was very disappointing and the service was awful. Our table cloth had stains on it and we were given a feeble excuse about cleaning materials. This did not detract from the fact that the table cloth had stains on it. If you can't get the basics such as a table... More

We visited The Red Rose on a Saturday night after a few drinks locally. We hadn't booked but were seated promptly, it was pretty busy with a mix of families, couples and larger groups. I was pleased they offered a thali as I haven't found a good thali option in the area. My vegetarian thali was very tasty and they... More

Went here for a birthday meal. Fantastic service and good old school curry. The staff make you feel very welcome. They brought out a cake and got everyone to sing happy birthday. My favourite curry house in the area.
