    Been here a few times now, the food is lovely with plenty to offer, they have a meal deal on at present, starter, main course and a sundry for just under £9pp.

    I gave it 4 stars due to the fact it takes a while to receive your food, but we have been told this is because the chef cooks everything from fresh, if this is true which I think it is due to the great tasting food, I don't mind waiting that little bit extra.

    I've been to the PB quite a few times usually in a small party with family. Last night it was busier than usual due to a young lady's 90th Birthday party  congratulations madam, I hope the vindaloo was up to your expectations.

    As mentioned elsewhere they have a three course offer, it is £9.95 on a Saturday which gets cheaper mid week. Not bad value at first glance but when you've added drinks & popadoms the bill always seems to be fair a bit higher than expected.

    I've never had any complaints about the food but the service can be a bit slow. The starters & sundries are particularly good but the main courses, in particular the specials, can be a bit hit & miss. This isn't the fault of the chef but more of a case of how you or the waiter interprets the dish off the menu. For example my Julienne, although pleasant it wasn't as described, the waiter actually thought it was a Jalfrezi! This confusion also occurred with some of the other dishes. Unfortunately my wife's sagwalla was a bit thin tasting and also a little oily.

    Whilst PB claim the food is cooked fresh and therefore there is inevitably a wait, I think is due to them being overstretched on the night. The service was slow and we also had to give a few reminders for drinks etc. I suspect the busy take-away trade was the main culprit.

    There are no draught beers, it is mainly bottled Cobra etc but to their credit they could offer me a very pleasant Cornish real ale.
    Four stars maybe a bit generous but unless you go for something off the Specials without doing your homework I don't think you'll be disappointed.

    The food was fresh & well prepared, better than your standard curry house. The drinks really bumped the bill up, I much prefer taking my own.
