Just the best Goan fish curry I have ever eaten. The butter chicken also superb. This chef is a genius. Beers are good too and the people very nice and friendly.

Another great meal and great service from a friendly proprietor and staff. The food is always tasty, the fluffiest rice you'll ever find while portions are of a size that you can enjoy what you like.

Great food, had the large mixed grill and was stuffed. Great smokey taste you only get from the tandoor, go and try it, will definitely be going back.

I booked a table for 4 for our dinner after visiting the theatre,this was our 4th visit to The Keg & Grill and the food was fabulous.The staff are always warm and welcoming.I decided to try their Chicken Biriyani this time and it's one of the best I've had. It's only a small pub but sometimes it's nice to get away from the hustle & Bustle of the city centre

The Keg and Grill is without doubt the best Indian meal I have ever experienced. What makes this place different is that it's a good and authentic real ale pub combined with an Indian restaurant. The food is an excellent standard and above all the Keg and Grill is a warm, friendly and welcoming place. I would recommend the keg and gtill to anyone.

Fantastic food and a great choice of beers to accompany it. Service was swift and by friendly staff. Will certainly return as had a great experience, highly recommended for a place to start off your evening or to while away a night with friends. Make sure you book as it does get busy

We thought the food was fantastic and they had a good range of beer as well. We really liked the informal feel too. More ambient lighting and a few pictures on the walls and general enhancement of overall decoration would make this place even better!

Lovely home made Indian food. Bit of a wait for the food but worth it. The chilli paneer and southern Indian chicken were amazing. Good background music playing and good selection of beers. Credit card machine was not working the night we went, but we only got told when the bill arrived.

Was totally taken off guard with this restaurant / pub. Was expecting something contemporary and a fusion of Steaks & Chicken etc with Indian cuisine. It was effectively a Pub, with pretty mediocre design / décor that serves Indian cuisine. Value for money was poor and the food was good without being great. Absolutely no ambience and with so many great curry houses in the immediate vicinity I wouldn't be seeking out the Keg & Grill. It is bizarre that it gets the ratings it does.

Nice pub with friendly staff serving a large selection of beers including three handpull ales. Nice cosy atmosphere food was very nice we shared a mixed grill and added masala chips and naan which was more than sufficient for two. Would suggest booking at busiest times as dining space is limited.

Enjoyed a couple of pints and a very tasty meal. The food was perhaps a little pricey but the quality was excellent. Service was friendly & efficient service. The decor is a bit basic but the place was bustling, obviously a popular place and rightly so.

Excellent food as always. I had a large grill and my wife had a Lamb Rogun Josh and we both cleared our plates. It was all washed down with a good pint of real ale.

Quick, efficient service. Bar staff friendly, Party of 8 ordered a variety of dishes and everyone greatly enjoyed their meal. It wasn't the first time we had visited the Keg and Grill and it won't be the last.

The food was really nice. Old pub just off the city centre, given a lick of paint. Not a huge selection on the menu but what they served up was excellent. Good service and nice and friendly staff.

Awesome food, great service and a really good pub to boot. What more could you want. I'd recommend this for group or solo visits. The beer selection is also very good.

Pub was clean, friendly and had a nice atmosphere! Food was very tasty and reasonably priced, all in all a great evening! Large mixed grill could certainly feed 2 unless you fancy a challenge!!

Some tasty food but very disappointing overall. Tandoori starters were very good. Chilli chicken should be taken off the menu or redeveloped as it was wishy-washy. Main courses were rather small portions and average in flavour. Overall, can do better as what has been delivered doesn't match up to the expectation promised by the website.

Great Indian food and pub drinks at this no-nonsense venue. The mixed grill was amazing and we'll definitely go back for this alone, but everything we had was great (especially the marsala chips!)

Beautiful curry and an excellent choice of beers. Service and decor just right. Prices perhaps a bit pricy, especially the spiced prawn starter but overall a great first time visit. Would strongly recommend

Great food and good atmosphere, limited menu compared to others but what they do is excellent and if you have a big appetite go for the mixed grill as a starter.

It is basically a pub that looks like a back room in an old village hall. Food was tasty but no atmosphere. Not s place to book for a meal but if you already happened to be there is worth eating
