Cinnamon Spice – Silverdale Cumbria

Seriously good BYOB Indian restaurant in the Cumbrian countryside at Silverdale (Lancashire border)

S and I try to have a long weekend away every summer to enjoy the Cumbrian air and go walking. Part of that tradition includes a visit to Cinnamon Spice, an Indian restaurant in Silverdale that serves great food, has unfailingly jolly service (in our experience) and is inexpensive. That’s partly because it’s unlicensed so you can bring your own booze (BYOB) although it’s good value anyway.


Cinnamon special starter (top left): mix of tandoori king prawns, chicken pakora, shami kebab and cubed lamb tikka @ £4.95

Chicken shashlik bhuna (top right) @ £9.45 – Authentic yet novel dish containing chicken tikka, onions, green peppers, tomatoes and ginger, mixed with medium spices and herbs that are cooked first in the tandoor clay oven, then marinated in a fairly dry bhuna sauce to produce a mixture of rich aromatic flavours

Motor paneer (bottom left) – cheesey peas @ £2.95



It’s a fairly small restaurant and has always been full on my visits so you need to book ahead.


Cinnamon Spice special – mixed starters with shami kebab, lamb tikka, pakora and salad


Bahari fish bhuna @ £9.45 – cod marinated in light spices and mixed vegetables with fresh garlic, garnished with plum tomatoes

I’ve had this fish bhuna several times now. It’s so good it’s proving difficult to try anything else from the menu.



Freshly baked garlic nan @ £2.50

Cinnamon Spice on Emesgate Lane, Silverdale


The verdict: That we keep coming back year after year says it all. On our last visit, July 2016, our total bill for two came to £31.50 before tip. There’s no corkage fee and they’ll keep your drinks cold in their fridge. Food is excellent and – on every occasion – we’ve experienced good, friendly service.
