This little gem can be found between Birmingham and Bromsgrove, on the picturesque St Leonard’s Square of the historic town of Clent. Located in a typically ancient local heritage building – 400 years old – Jaipur Cottage is an Indian and Bangladeshi restaurant that has been beloved by locals to the region for a couple of decades. The family itself has been in business since the first wave of Indian cuisine hit Britain in the 60s, so you know that this Church Avenue restaurant is the real deal.
Since 1994, Jaipur Cottage has been quietly dishing up high class Indian and Bangladeshi cuisine to Clent locals, and intrepid curry lovers who come from as far as Birmingham and Bromsgrove to sample what’s on offer. What is on offer is a long list of classic South Asian dishes, prepared using fresh ingredients and spices that are ground on site at Jaipur Cottage’s handsome St Leonard’s Square premises on the corner of Church Avenue. With plenty of vegetarian options available, Jaipur Cottage is a destination for many travelling through this beautiful part of the West Midlands.
A special all-you-can-eat Sunday buffet is a local secret and a popular weekend feast for those who live in Clent. From noon until 3pm on the sabbath, Jaipur Cottage’s venerable premises on the Church Avenue corner of St Leonard’s Square are packed out with families enjoying their unique brand of South Asian cuisine. It’s Jaipur Cottage’s chef’s specials that are particularly sought after by those in the know, and it’s for these that aficionados of West Midlands’ Indian and Bangladeshi cuisine come for, with many taking the time to drive through the countryside from Birmingham and Bromsgrove. A daily chicken or lamb special is usually chalked up on the board, different each day and cooked with the chef’s secret blend of hand-ground spices. Other curious dishes include an Indian-style pasta and Nepalese delicacies. Jaipur Cottage deserves to be more widely known.
Our first time here and we were not disappointed, the ambience was wonderful, the staff were attentive a fabulous selection of drinks and well the food was amazing and plentiful. We were asked if would like a break between starters and mains which was appreciated! We booked our table for 20:30 we had to wait till around 21:00 but that was fine as we had drinks and our orders taken! We chose a set meal omg it was amazing, the waiter asked me if there was something wrong with one of the dishes , definitely not it was just I’m not a lover of lamb but he said I could of changed it for something else! We will be back very soon , thankyou for a wonderful evening! Kind regards!
Wonderful licensed Indian restaurant, and as always, exceptional food and service. Staff very friendly and welcoming. The restaurant itself is very clean and is enjoyable whether dining out as a large group, family or even as a couple. Cannot recommend this restaurant enough.
Great atmosphere with a good choice of fantastic food. Staff are friendly and attentive. I always have a good night at The Jaipur Cottage whether I go as a couple or part of a big group.
