  • Excellent food and drink. The tempura courgettes were (in the words of Craig Revel Horwood), gorgeous.

  • The drinks, atmosphere, food and service are consistently good here. My only wish is that they would do more non-meat, non diary options.

  • 5 star ratingJust got back from this tapas bar and wanted to give them a review.

    Had 5 tapas dishesbetween 2 of us. Plenty of choice of both green and Spanish but we stuck with the Spanish. It was delicious.
    Beetroot and blue cheese salad ..lovely and fresh with flavour and not too overwhelming blue cheese
    Gambas pil pil ...nice and tastywith not too much heat
    Stuffed jalapenos ... creamy and full of flavour
    Patatas bravas...chose the vegi option so ther were a lovely accompaniment to the other dishes
    DUCK... not sure of the name of the dish but number 16...absolutely delicious ...I would come back for this alone.

    Service was good and staff friendly but not overbearing. Onlycomplaint but i am not docking them any points was the eating area was a little chilly.

  • Mostly go to the Tapas to watch rugby on a Saturday afternoon, with some food. Food is great, beer is great plus an extensive wine and spirits list. Well worth a visit!

  • Lovely food and friendly staff. Why a time limit? Why a rush to order, eat and leave? We were given an hour and a half to eat up, sup up and ship out. Before it came close to our time, we asked for the dessert menu, twice. Second time we (politely) commented we had to be out soon. The same with the bill. Why the rush? Upstairs only had us and one table of people when we left! Can't blame the staff, they just did as they had been told.
