If you are looking for good quality food and friendly service this pub always delivers. The prices are very reasonable, dog friendly and the service very fast. We rate the food here better than a lot of other expensive venues.

Tracey, our landlady in The Old Town guesthouse, advised us Tuesday was curry night so we pre booked for our first Tuesday. The food was very enjoyable and the staff very friendly.

A Christmas work gathering with the girls from work, sadly went from 8, to 5, to just 3 of us No way I was missing Tapas and supporting our fave pub in the Old Town! Cant beat the tapas here, excellent value for really tasty...food. Gutted there was no cod in panko breadcrumbs, it’s one of my fave dishes, I did ask if could go off menu for it which had always been ok in the past but was declined tonight. Please keep it on the menu it’s sooooo good! Great service, fabulous food and service Happy Christmas to allMore

Fabulous tapas - as good as any we have had in Spain - or anywhere else! Varied choice of dishes, fantastic combinations of flavours and all cooked to absolute perfection and bursting with freshness! Very highly recommended.

My husband and I stopped here with out puppy. The staff were super friendly and accommodating. The food was more than your average pub grub. It looked great and tasted even better. We had the T bone steak, and the shepherds pie and both were...fantastic. Would definitely recommend.More
