our history

The Badi Mirchi building was a public house called ‘The Leigh Hotel’ built in the 1930’s in the Tudor style.
An identical sister pub was built in West End called ‘The New Inn’ but sadly no longer exists.

The Leigh Hotel was used as a local drinking and eating establishment for businesses, thirsty factory workers and locals alike until August 2011 when it was refurbished and transformed into Badi Mirchi, retaining as much of the original character of the building as possible.

The new smart and sophisticated interior is complemented by the truly scrumptious Indian cuisine.
