Dignitaries enjoyed the very best in Indian cuisine as a staple of Baldock's town centre marked 40 years in business.
Guests at the Lancer in the High Street included North Herts District Council chairman John Booth and councillors Jim McNally, Michael Muir and Michael Weeks.
And Mamsad Ahmed – who runs the Lancer alongside his cousin Momshad Ahmed – told the Comet some customers returned so often that they had become like family.
“The highlight of all my time here has been our friendly customers,” he said. “They’re very regular. Some customers are here so much they’re like family members.
“They like the food and they enjoy every moment. Everyone liked everything today as well – they were really happy to come.”
The Lancer, named after the famed Bengal Lancers of the Indian Army, is the oldest Indian restaurant in Baldock. It changed its name from Romna Tandoori about 20 years ago.
