A listed building derelict for many years, refurbished and renovated to a good standard. Upon arrival we were welcomed like returning regular customers. The service and friendliness of staff was exceptional. The menu is varied and interesting; includes the old favourites for those who are not too adventurous, the specialities menu was both varied, interesting and inspiring. The food was prepared and cooked to a high standard and was thoroughly enjoyable. Would definitely recommend and will return. I wish Spice Valley every success.

Only gripes with the place is that they garnished their salads with olives that contained stones (potential choking hazard if you’re not expecting it), and also a starter which we thought would come hot was actually in fact cold and had this been known previously it wouldn’t have been ordered.

Service was attentive but took almost an hour from arrival to the first dishes to arrive (ignoring popadums). However the meal was very pleasant and would have no hesitation to come back for another meal. I liked the backlit menus making them easy to read in lower light conditions.

I am sure if you went on a Saturday that was not just before Christmas the wait would be minimal I cannot fault the staff or praise them for their attention to detail and how hard they work We will definitely be visiting again
