Solihull’s Tap & Tandoor kicked off its first birthday celebrations with a drinks reception for more than 80 guests.

The independent Indian gastro pub on the Warwick Road invited loyal customers, local businesses and community members to join them to mark 12 months in the town and the start of its anniversary weekend.

Guests enjoyed prosecco, cocktails, craft beers and canapes at the private event on Thursday 13 June – with celebrations continuing all weekend and including a discounted fizz Friday, a birthday beer festival in association with Solihull Round Table and a fully-booked Father’s Day.

Ajay Kenth, Tap & Tandoor owner said: “It was great to welcome so many faces – old and new – to the pub. Despite the June downpours we’ve enjoyed a superb weekend of fun and we look forward to continuing serving award-winning home-style curries, Indian mixed grills and specially selected craft beers for many years to come! Thank you for supporting us and welcoming us to Solihull.”
