Too many things here that just weren't good enough. Long wait for the drinks and starters, no bread with the antipasti starters, dishes arriving too late while others went cold. The quality of the food wasn't great and we felt it expensive. One of the dishes didn't actually arrive. Little things like no condiments on the table..I could go on.... More

There were three of us out for supper and we ordered a variety of tapas favourites. Everything was delicious. Really couldn't fault it. Service was also warm, professional and efficient and the Rioja to go with was equally top-notch. Can't wait to return. 👍

Fantastic Sunday lunch! Warm welcome, brilliant staff and consistently brilliant. Evenings are amazing ask them to put on the prawn curry!!! Amazing selection of gins served with juniper berries! Dave and Lynn really do care and take time to listen to their regulars to go that extra mile! Thank you.

6 of us went for a meal for a friends birthday on Saturday night - the food and atmosphere was brilliant as always. The staff were helpful and honest - even advising us against ordering too many dishes .... 'you can always order more if you need it' said the owner - which is so refreshing. Can't wait to visit...

Not been here for a while and really should come more often. Food excellent and great atmosphere. Staff were extremely helpful and there was no rush to push us out at the end of the evening even though we were the ones in!

Love this place! last visited 4 years ago when I lived here and revisited again few months back and it's as good as before. Amazing tapas. Menu has gone bit larger but hey plenty of choice. Owners are super nice and always happy to advise on menu. Used to love the Mediterranean downstairs tapas dinning area but now it appears... More

Great food and atmosphere, they also have a very good selection of gins with some special tonics. A very friendly family run bar.

This is a brilliant tapas restaurant, with a large selection of different dishes available. Portion sizes are generous and the owner will actually tell you if she feels you have ordered too much, which is refreshingly honest! The service is excellent, very friendly and quick and the food is outstanding. We regularly go here and I'd highly recommend it.

Thank Trish M
