More about The Bridge and Bayleaf, Nottingham

The Nottinghamshire village of Gunthorpe is one of those rural gems that have developed a not-insignificant number of quality gastronomic venues. The Bridge And Bayleaf stands proud among this small community with its refined northern Indian cuisine attracting intrepid foodies from Nottingham and beyond, not to mention happily snaring a few travellers passing over the Trent River bridge. It’s setting is the late-19th-century tollhouse cottage down Trentside, a sterling place to indulge in Indian food that is far from run-of-the-mill – the kitchen is dedicated to using less fat and oil, imparting flavour only by the judicious use of herbs and spices, the finest quality ingredients, and practised culinary skill.

Gunthorpe’s The Bridge And Bayleaf specialises in healthy northern Indian and Punjabi food, and likes to encourage guests to dine the Indian way – with a large group of friends and family sharing a selection of dishes among themselves. That’s why our recommendation is to try out the chef’s set menu for two or for four, choosing between a refreshingly egalitarian vegetarian or non-vegetarian selection. Vegetable samosa, onion bhaji, puri, chaat, and veggie tikki or seekh kebabs to start, balti, karahi, bhuna, Punjabi and Kashmiri vegetables, chilli paneer and more are set to stun. But perhaps not quite as much as the very stunning and fiery hot (and simply titled) The Bridge And Bayleaf , a curry cooked with fresh Scotch Bonnet chillies that is not for the faint hearted and will have Nottingham’s so-called curry connoisseurs close to leaping in the Trent if they’re – how else can we say it? – well-seasoned Indian diners.

Great food, and good service to celebrate a retirement with a family meal. Only downside was that restaurnt was not very busy so lacked a bit of atmosphere.
