Blending a classic British pub with an Indian restaurant in Beoley in Birmingham is a surefire way to woo punters; if the promise of a pint and a curry isn’t enough to get Brum locals down Alcester Road’s Rajput Cross and Bowling Green, we’re not sure what’s going to do it. The team mix traditional British elements with subcontinental flair to bring flavours of India to Birmingham to excellent effect.
Naturally, curry houses are a staple in Birmingham’s eclectic dining scene, but the guys at Rajput Cross and Bowling Green are shaking things up by blending best of British (that is, the great British public house) with the best of India – curry, obviously. The dining space is a formal restaurant (tablecloths and all) but the service is much more like familiar bar service than it is stuffy-dining room. Diners are flocking to this Beoley favourite for Alcester Road’s finest chicken pathia, and returning for the excellent service, range of beer and wines and laidback atmosphere.
For those fortunate enough to have a Beoley postcode, curry delivered straight to your door is an excellent option for curry fans, although we should warn that the food at Rajput Cross and Bowling Green is best enjoyed in-house with a freshly pulled draught ale. Getting diners over to Alcester Road for superior quality Indian food in a traditional British pub setting is an easy sell indeed, and as such diners are advised that a reservation is always a good idea.
