We were staying 1 night at the Great Western Skylark Hotel, Tuesday 31st May, we were pleased to see that there was an Indian Resturant and the Watershed bar and restaurant attached to the hotel. 

Decided to have an Indian meal for dinner, on arrival at the restaurant we were told it was very busy and there could be a 30 minute wait, they were catering for a coach party in the conference room. The delay was not a problem, we were happy to wait and have a drink at our table while deciding what to eat.

We asked to see the Indian menu, and this was the first disappointment, we were advised that the Indian restaurant was closed and we were given the Watershed Bar menu, which was not very exciting.

Eventually we ordered our food, chicken ham and leek pie £7.95 and  Aberdeen Angus burger £9.45 with a New Yorker topping £1 extra. The pie should have been served with onion gravy and peas, there were no peas and the only thing that was in the gravy was bits of lettuce. Informed the waiter that the peas were missing, he said he would get some, still waiting. Mentioned the lettuce floating in hot gravy and was informed that it was a new style. The burger meal was average and was served warm.

Our 2 drinks came to £7.90, there was no real ale on sale. Our bill for the evening came to £42.10 for the 2 of us, but 10% service charge was automatically added to the bill, making the total £46.31,which was a bit of a cheek, as the service was poor.

Went to the bar to pay the bill, the bar counter and rubber drip mats looked as if they need a good clean, did not appear to have been done for a while.

(Not sure if Diya Indian Resturant is permanently closed or if it was just closed on the evening we were there)

Whenever we have a stopover the night before a flight from Gatwick we have a superb curry here as its ideally located next to the best western skylane hotel.
The food here is really good , there is also a English menu serving steaks, burgers etc.

If you like Indian meals this is the place very very good I recommend the tandoori mixed grill to start and share then any of the lamb dishes we had Kashmiri rogan josh lamb and it was great. Good portions and for a reasonable price. We stayed at the hotel so didn't have to go out for a meal and we're glad we didn't. Try it you will like it.
