Two things struck me about Merlin's. One was Merlin himself. English folklore speaks of him as a disheveled but extremely powerful mage,... More

Looking for somewhere to eat on a Thursday night out we decided on Merlins ss we hadn't been there for a while. All 3 of us really enjoyed all our food and found the service really friendly. Will make sure I visit more often.

My husband and I came on a Sat night and had a wonderful meal. The poppadoms were great because they come with plenty of chutney, the Malbec red wine was excellent, the curries were fantastic and the staff were really great. The bill at the end was nice too 😊.What more could you ask for in a Sat night curry!... More
