CURRY EXPRESS

We’re providing a First Class service, with Prosecco served on arrival, reserved seats, poppadoms and a choice of chicken, lamb or vegetable ginger curry.  Pilau rice and a plain naan bread is also included.  The meal is topped off with a refreshing scoop of vanilla ice cream to round the evening off! 

Some like it hot! New for 2019, we now have two menus, our standard menu (available on three dates) and a ‘hot‘ menu available on three additional dates. 

How hot is the ‘hot’ menu? Our testers report that (whilst hotter than our standard menu) the curries are not really hot; more ‘medium to hot’.  We’ve created this option in 2019 to offer more variety and we look forward to your feedback!

We’re running the Curry Express in conjunction with Mastabs Restaurants of Skipton – so you’ll be assured of top quality cuisine prepared by experts!
