Does anybody remember the name of the Indian restaurant that used to be in the Poynton Brass Band Centre on Park Lane?

Les Durrant's book "One upon a time in Poynton" tells us that it was the Indian Gourmet.

I have lived in Poynton over 40 years and don't ever remember there being an Indian restaurant in that building!

You learn something new every day.

Someone told me that the building that 'Hush' - the new saloon on Park Lane facing Towers road, - used to be a green grocers 40 years ago. I remember the deli next door where the two cottages have been renovated, but not the green grocers next door.

We ate there once. It must have been about 25 years ago. We booked a baby sitter from the time we had said we would be there, and arrived about 15 minutes late. We were met by a frowning Indian gentleman who scowled at us then pointed at his watch. Perhaps that's why we remember it. :)

We ate there once. Nothing bad about it but closed many years ago.

There was also an insurance brokers at Hockley. Steve Andow and maybe his father before him ran it. This in the days before call centers. Good service too.

Ate there several times. It was pretty good from what I remember.
