  • Thought exquisite Indian food was confined to the realms of the dazzling country itself? Think again, with Gunpowder offering home-style dishes showcasing the bold flavours and colourful sights of the subcontinent using responsibly sourced ingredients.

James Kenyon, head of business sales, said the textures and tastes stay with you for a long time. “It’s always absolutely mobbed, and the food is outstanding,” he said. “The restaurant is tiny, and you can’t reserve a table so make sure to turn up two hours before you want to eat, put your name down and pop to the pub around the corner while you wait.” Spicy venison, crispy pork ribs, aloo chaat… is it dinner time yet?
