We went to Shampan tonight for a birthday celebration. The food was lovely, I could not fault it - nor could I finish it! It isn't the cheapest meal but I'm happy to pay for good food and it was very good. However, our £500+...More

A very high end Indian restaurant, very good food and very posh surroundings. Not the cheapest place in the world, drinks especially expensive ( we thought), takeaways are very good, lots of food and high quality. Lots of free car parking

With a picturesque little thatched cottage in its grounds and with ample parking space, Shampan Group’s multi-award winning flagship restaurant is a byword for luxury and elevated food and drink. With several rooms to dine in, an airy and relaxing bar and lounge area where you can unwind with a wonderful cocktail or two along, or even a post-dinner coffee or liqueur, Shampan offers an unparalled dining experience. Our menu, prepared by Executive Chef Sadek Miah using quality, local ingredients, offers a fine mix of well-made traditional and beautifully plated, modern dishes with combinations you don’t often see in Indian restaurants. We also have a private dining space, the saffron Room with its bar and al fresco area. It’s a stunning spot that can be used for anything from private parties and anniversaries to wedding receptions and even corporate hire. The perfect icing on the cake for a restaurant group that’s often spoken of as one of the best in the South-East
