Top Notch Food bye a Top Notch Chef. Night was superb and good atmosphere all credit to Mike and the team for working hard behind the scenes.
Always have a great time here and the staff are really friendly. Try the Amber ales they are a bit different to the run of the mill ales
Fantastic experience that made me look like an absolute boss to my fellow employees for our staff do. A great option for Wolves town centre - and for those who need to try something a bit different. Great food in a great location.
Good: Lamb Saag curry was extremely tasty, and very well cooked. Lovely beer. Clean table and seating area. Easy to set up a tab. Easy to book through Quandoo. Fun shuffle-board game. Bad: Some members of staff not very friendly, and not overly helpful. Too noisy, particularly from drunk people at the bar (it was 7pm) The Peshwari Naan really let the food down, as it was very dry, bland, not at all buttery, and not cooked fresh. Very disappointing. The lime chutney was, to be frank, inedible. My friend normally loves lime chutney but this he was not even able to put in his mouth. Once booked, i called the restaurant to rearrange as we were worried we may be late, but no one answered. i called 3 times and the phone just rang put. Is there no other way to alter a booking?
I was really impressed with the Hooded Ram. The quality of the beer and food was great. The combination of high quality drinks with great Indian street food is an impressive addition to Wolverhampton's city centre. The only downside was it did take a little while to be served, but it was a match-day evening and therefore not wholly unexpected. Overall, I was very impressed with the quality of food, drink, decor and atmosphere together with the reasonable prices. Great value for money.
Lovely evening with very tasty food at a reasonable price. Friendly staff, convenient location. One small quibble: I had pre-ordered the food to be served at 19:00, but it was over half an hour later that the first dished started to appear. Everybody enjoyed it, though, with several saying they would return.
The food here is amazing, but I'm afraid the service let this down greatly. We pre booked out food but still had to wait 40 minutes for the starter. There was no urgency from the staff and no real smile. The starters were put in from of us and we weren't asked if it was our dish so we had to swap them over ourselves. When the mains eventually came out we were half way through them before the Naan bread arrived, one of the mains was wrong but we had waited so long we decided not to say anything as we would have been waiting even longer. The waitress informed us the chef was over worked. Because of this we won't be returning to the restaurant.
A proper gem in the centre of town. The staff are welcoming and attentive, the food is out of this world, and they had a singer on too! I can’t praise them enough.
Nice food and nice place staff very friendly and helpful, would recommend, food is on the spicy side but was tasty, will be going back to try something else
