Well another birthday come around, so decided to go to the Squire Bassett for a meal. Went there a few (Thirsty) Thursdays ago, the beer was good and got given a free sizzling Chicken Tikka dish.
As reported before this is now the Gurkha Village Nepalese Restaurant, have had a takeaway Madras curry from here which was nice but mighty hot.
But have heard that the Nepalese food is really nice.
After a couple of drinks, we had a few poppadums and the chutney tray to start and then a Chicken Kali Mirch, a Shangrila Chicken, leek & mushroom rice and a pilau rice with a sweet nan and Gurkha vegetable bahor side dish. With a couple of coffees the bill came to a very reasonable £39. Really nice food, both dishes had that little extra something than the usual Indian meal, the veggie side dish was particulary very tasty and fresh.
The service was excellent, the Hobgoblin beer was good too.
So it looks like the Squire Bassett has ‘arrived’ as a good ‘traditional’ pub with the addition of a great restaurant. We will be visiting again soon and we wish the pub well.
