Love this place and the food is amazing but make sure you have plenty of cash when you visit as you can easily run a rocket of a bill up! However, highly recommended try as the atmosphere is fab too..

Whenever I travel north to visit the in-laws I look forward to eating here. Lovely venue menu and staff. The portions are generous and the service friendly. Nice wine list and a good cold sherry.

The food was amazing as ever. However we were served by an incredibly rude waitress wearing glasses.

Called on a weekday evening and were really impressed. Lots of choice, just tick what you want and the various dishes arrive. We chose 6 dishes between the two of us and had plenty to eat: olives, whitebait, lovely Spanish omelette etc. Good ambience. Staff helpful and friendly. Really is a great spot!
