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.
The food is consistently good. I especially love the the quaint quirky venue in the heart of the Clent hills and the really friendly staff.
