  • review rating 0  We visited this evening and had such a great meal ! The staff couldn’t of been more helpful if they tried. The lady checked with the chef what dishes I could have and highlighted the menu for me ( no dairy ) There was loads ! They even double checked something was for my partner that we ordered before bringing it out due to it containing dairy. I am such a fussy eater but I thoroughly enjoyed our meal and felt confident to be eating here. It’s the first place I’ve actually felt comfortable and confident eating at in a long time and even better that I had such a huge choice!! Thanks for such great service and see you soon :)!

  • review rating 0  Lovely tapas, better than the other 2 I’ve been too, even though they don’t do paella, but if I ring in the morning they will make me paella for that evening, amazing service and attitude this is my new tapas, well worth the travel, lovely atmosphere and food was delicious, felt like I was back in Spain, highly recommend

  •   The tapas bar has been in town for eons. Saturday was the first time we had a chance to pop in and try their tapas which seems to be hitting the spot with a lot of reviewers. The list is large. An assortment of Spanish/Greek...More

  • review rating 5  We visited the old yard tapas bar as a large group of 15. The food was excellent with a wide variety of Spanish and Greek tapas menus. What was really good was the 6 or more group menu which came out with over 10 (the beer was flowing so I cannot remember the exact amount) well sized dishes. The service was brilliant and what was nice was that they catered for individual needs, the pizza was available as an online pre order but not on the in-house menu and yet they still made it. It was a great night for all of us and I would highly recommend this restaurant.
