It’s been a while since we visited the Grange. Over this time the restaurant has become very popular. The manager tells us that business is good and it’s obvious to see with a full restaurant, even on a Tuesday night.
Of course, with the lapse in time, prices have gone up, but this is more to do with supply and demand. For example, the banquet is £13 and nearly all dishes have gone up by at least a pound along with the fact that the side vegatables are quite small. Having said that, you get five courses and we still took a couple of ‘doggy’ bags away with us.
For the menu it provides it delivers it very well.
The Grange have clearly found a formula and have managed to hold onto it for the last two or three years. They cover a large catchment area and are providing a good service and good food. Good luck to them and hopefully they can keep it going with their regular customers that they must now have built up.
Common Curry – Slipped to the more expensive end because of its popularity, but still good value.
Certificate – A 3 star certificate awarded.
