Came away feeling underwhelmed. Of the 4 tapas dishes we ordered only one had a wow factor for taste. The other 3 I have had much better in lesser rated venues. The staff we lovely, efficient and knowledgeable of the food and wine and the...environment is lovely… Just a shame that the food did not meet expectationsMore

Wow, wow wow. This little restaurant is out of this world. Such a relaxed atmosphere, feels really laid back but still professional. Great to just order little and often plates. Great value, could spend hours drinking catching up with friends and grazing. We had the...cheese and meat platter, prawns, potato’s which where to die for, and goodness know what else. We lost count of what we ordered but each dish was so tasty. Highly recommendMore

We had the early evening special menu which was a good price at just under £15pp. The Gambas, patatas bravas and inside out chicken lollipops were very good. The pork belly was almost inedible - extremely tough and grisly. When you see pork belly on...a menu you think it will be cooked properly as in slowly so that the fat melts and the meat becomes tender but not this dish so definitely one to avoid. Another dish that really wasn’t very nice was the seabass - served cold, it had a coating on it that had it been hot would have been lovely but this was straight out of the fridge and very damp (imagine soggy stone cold fish fingers but thinner) - odd. To finish on a positive note, the restaurant is lovely and service was excellent.More

If this place was further south, it would be £40-50 more expensive (based on four people). Excellent food and friendly service - highlights were the gambas, pork belly, charcuterie & cheese board, and oh-my-god, the inside-out chicken wings were out of this world. Plus a...decent white rioja for £24 and fantastic churros. 100% recommend.More

Patatas bravas and gambas with shell on were very good and traditional. Unfortunately, the rest of the tapas we ordered wasn’t so good. The beetroot was cooked very well, however, it was overpowered by strong artificial tasting orange. The tomato dish had a lot of...bean/pea purée and some strong herbs which again overpowered the tomatoes. Finally, the spicy pork belly was a little chewy and a lot of the pieces on the skewer were just fat which was quite sickly. Perhaps some of the other dishes are better! Friendly staff, lovely decor and nice atmosphere.More

I know it’s been a while since we’ve been ‘out out’ but the food was a taste sensation. I think my favourite was the beetroot, orange and cashew - the balance of flavours was just stunning, closely followed by the Heirloom tomatoes which were up...there with the best tomatoes I’ve ever tasted. Patatas Bravas were gorgeous and authentic. Lovely setting and nice and attentive staff. I would highly recommend a visit!More

This restaurant was not our first choice. We picked it after our first choice had to cancel due to Covid HOWEVER this should of been first choice as it’s an absolute gem of a restaurant!!! The food is fresh, flavoursome and authentically presented whilst the...atmosphere and staff make the experience all the more special. Between the two of us we made sure we sampled plenty of the menu but we are both agreed that the Spicy Belly Pork, The Gambas and the Salty peppers where our favourite tasty treats of the evening. In fact I would very happily eat it all again whilst typing this reviewMore

The food was absolutely brilliant some dishes could be classed as fine dining. Excellent value for money as the quality of food was exceptional. Loved the way the waiting staff talked you through the courses.
