A Friday evening would not be complete without a trip to the Indian! Great menu, excellent service with a friendly welcome. One to return to.

Complained about flat coke and received over spiced meal. Attentive staff until we complained then ignored us missing further drinks orders. Starters were ok but cannot recommend and won't go back. Staff were smug and ignorant, only girls we saw.

Usually fantastic, ordered diet coke and all 3 were 6 months out of date. Hopefully it was just a silly error as the food is usually pretty good

Have been to the Modern many times, both as small family meals and for work nights out and always get a good service, friendly staff, and most importantly, the food is always really nice.
