Stopped by for a drink. Two couples felt welcomed and the staff behind the bar were very helpful. My wife is pregnant so the bar staff made a lovely alco-free cocktail while we tried the different gins. Lovely setting, decor and feel. Go here!

Visited whilst on a short break with my daughter on a girlie weekend away. The food was just perfect, tapas were generous in portion, freshly cooked, and delicious. We chose 3 tapas each to share, which was just the right amount for us. Wouldn't hesitate...More

Wow, this place is excellent and a bit hidden from the main drag so not too busy. The St Ives gin they serve is amazing and the cocktails are heavenly. Staff are lovely and friendly and make you feel very welcome. Def recommend.

Having whiled away many a happy spring day here, sitting outside for hours eating superb tapas and drinking excellent cocktails, we are devastated to arrive for our first visit since early summer, to discover they are no longer offering their amazing cocktail menu. Completely understand...More

There are tables outside where you could sit with your dog. Not sure about inside as it isn't very spacious.
