The Kings Repose
Situated in the countryside in a beautiful barn conversion in Featherstone near Wolverhampton, The King’s Repose is a high quality and highly recommended Indian restaurant.
With hosts Lee, Misbah and Monseur who have ran the successful restaurant since 1995, it is no wonder that they have many returning customers and new customers week in week out.
In August 2016, The King’s Repose made it to the Grand Final of the Tiffin Cup, which was held at Bellamy’s Restaurant in the House of Commons. They were nominated by Gavin Williamson, MP for South Staffordshire.
The Tiffin Cup is a competition which celebrates culinary diversity and is held each year to find the best South Asian restaurant in the country. The competition final was judged by Ainsley Harriot. The Kings Repose was one of the eleven national finalists in the competition. Unfortunately The King’s Repose didn’t place first, second or third in the finals, however they were named the best South Asian restaurant in the West Midlands! What a great achievement to shout about!
Each dish at The King’s Repose has its own individual flavour and aroma from the herbs and spices specially prepared by the Master Chef Misbah. Using only the best ingredients with a wonderful combination of subtle flavours and tastes, blending fragrant and exotic spices from the Indian continent
This evening my partner and I were delighted to be returning to the award winning, King’s Repose in Featherstone.
After parking on the free secure car park to the front of the restaurant we stepped out of the car and could immediately smell the beautiful aromas.
We were greeted at the entrance by Monsieur who remembered us from our previous visit, and were taken through to the bar area where we both ordered a Cobra beer each and began to peruse the menu.
With so many tempting dishes to choose from we didn’t know where to begin.
For our starters we decided on Sheek Kebab and Chingri Fry along with poppadums and dips. For our mains we opted for a Murgh Talibul- a thick sauce of Coriander, Chilli, Tomatoes & Chicken, lightly spiced & barbecued in the tandoor (£12.95) & Chamura Bengali- An outstanding dish, created by Master Chef, Misbah, & English Partner, Lee, famous Kings Repose King Prawns & succulent breast of chicken marinated in a special hot sauce (£17.95), to accompany our mains we also ordered pilau rice and a peshwari naan to share.
Once our order was completed we were taken upstairs in the restaurant to a lovely table in front of the huge arched window overlooking the grounds.
We went on a Tuesday evening and the restaurant was bustling with diners.
Once we were settled our starters arrived and we were both very pleased. Both dishes had great flavours and fresh ingredients and were finished rather quickly!
Our main courses were presented shortly after and looked delicious. We shared each of the dishes and both were beautifully cooked and generous in proportion.
We finished our evening with coffees and my partner and I both said how The King’s Repose fully deserved to be awarded The Best South Asian Restaurant in the West Midlands by the Tiffin Cup 2016. The food & service truly is award winning!
This was another great evening with fantastic food and we will be returning as soon as possible.
