Authentic Polish cooking, with excellent service in a friendly atmosphere.

A new restaurant has opened in deepest Worcestershire, in the old carpet manufacturing town of Kidderminster. It is an excellent example of a Polish restaurant in the provinces, which attracts Polish families and couples, as well as many other visitors from the area, The guest book shows a reasonable geographical 'pull' for its clientele. Small, with some thirty covers, it offers a homely yet professional approach.

Traditional Polish cuisine, with a wide range of dishes on the extensive menu. The pea and ham soup is light meal in itself at £3.00. The cooking is authentic and homemade, based mainly on chicken, pork, beef or fish. Apart from usual fare such as Barszcz soup, Pierogi, Gulasz and Kotlets (pork fillet/chops or chicken fillet), there are salads, polish fish (Mintaja) and Golanka (ham hock). Traditional accompaniments are pickles, puree (mashed potato) or fries or kluski (potato dumplings). As good as many London joints such as Wodka, Baltic or Tatra.

The menu changes every few months with new dishes being introduced so that, unlike many restaurants, the diner has the choice of some 'best-sellers' along with new tastes to try. The cooking is consistent, yet innovative.

The service is very helpful and friendly service.

Well worth trying both if you are an aficionado of Polish food or if you wish to try it for the first time.

Perhaps the least you could do when advertising somewhere is to tell us its name and address.

I am not advertising this place just singing its praises. Little to be critical about, except that the range of beers available in the smaller 300ml bottles is eometimes limited. It is the Polonia Restaurant, 98 Comberton Hill, Kidderminster, DY10 1QH. Tel: 07596836270.

If the place is new, I'm intrigued to know how you know that it its menus "change every few months".

It's all relative. I think that it opened in Spring, so it has been open for at least 6 months.
