There are young white people who love the food, know what they want and what it should taste like. Everyone is welcome.
Mum and Dad are originally from India, but we moved to Smethwick in the s and lived about 50 yards from the Ivy Bush. There was always a big Asian community and the men worked in the foundries, so after a day working with hot metal, they wanted to quench their thirst.
In the s, before we moved here, there was a colour bar at the Ivy Bush, but those [Asian and black] customers fought the landlord at the time and eventually won. In , I was 32, selling tools at the market and drinking here.

The landlord at the time had fallen out with the brewery and decided to leave. It was hard work at first. There was a barman who was stealing from me, but I kept him on long enough that he could show me how a cellar worked, teach me about cask beers and what have you. When I took over, there was no food at all; it was a watering hole.
But when the smoking ban came in, it killed the pub — trade dropped by about three grand a week — so a lot of the Desi pubs started opening kitchens. We started with tandoori chicken from a tent in the yard in and escalated to a proper chef in Now everybody wants to eat Indian food. In the old days, we would get people coming to the pub and trying to intimidate us.
If they wanted it, we gave it to them. These days, because of the food, my clientele has changed from a strong Asian base to a strong white British base. In its time, the pub has welcomed young, old, Irish, black, Asian. The stigma of racism has gone in Smethwick. And we Asian landlords bear no grudges. Before taking over here in late , I could probably count the number of pubs I had been into on one hand.

My background was in business, but I did culinary courses and, in , started a business called Kidderminster Catering. I started looking for cheffing jobs, but they tend to mean working evenings and weekends, and I wanted to be there for my kids, who are now 11 and eight.
That was when the pub came up, and I thought it was a fantastic way to showcase my food while also being together as a family. The children like being able to grab sweets and drinks from the bar. And my daughter gave the customers a laugh once when she came down in her pyjamas, thinking we were closed.
At first, running the pub was challenging. Oh, my God. Before we even opened the door, there were people queueing on the main road and everything that could go wrong went wrong. The draught line stopped working, people were waiting to be served, the tills broke. In the end, we just stopped charging people.
It was a disaster, but I learned from it. If my front of house walked out tomorrow, I could clean my own draught lines, and tell you how a pint of beer should taste. But food offers common ground. People who would never have gone into an African-Caribbean restaurant come in here. That makes me so happy.
No way. I came to this country from India in — as a student of public administration — and became a pub landlord in There was a lot of hard work in between. When I first arrived, I worked in an Asian supermarket during the day and a bar at night. Some days, I would work for almost 20 hours. The best way to stay awake was to not drink alcohol. I think it was around that I decided I wanted to start a business, become a shopkeeper or something like that.
But when I looked at it, I decided a pub would be easier and I liked the concept of Indian food in a British-style pub. Taking over the Fourways was hard work because it was run down and there was a problem with drug dealing.
