We went here for an evening meal. We choose the £16 menu, unlimited tapas. The food was amazing, the staff were fantastic and the venue is lovely. Big range of drinks including: cocktails and gins. The lady who served us was delightful. The food came out quickly (but not too quickly liked it was just heated up) and was fresh... More

We came in on our anniversary after wondering the streets looking for something to eat (most places are close on a Tuesday in November). We were the only people in, needless to say the service was cracking! We had the endless tapas and chocolate fondue both of which were amazing! Would definitely recommend it!

Very welcoming, excellent selection of food, and great quality. New owners seem to have inherited the cookery book of the previous owners - and have made excellent use of it. We selected different dishes, all good, all good quantity, but there were deals which looked excellent, if we had had time or appetite to take them. Keep up the quality!

Haven't been here since it was taken over by new owners. We went to celebrate our anniversary with family and friends. Must say the service was excellent hence the 5 star rating. Nothing was too much trouble and the food was in abundance. Definatley return and a good night was had by all. Well done tapas!

We went as a group of 6. As usual we ordered one dish each and then more just before the first dishes arrived. If forwarned they will do a cheese fondue!

My husband and I had the most wonderful evening spent here. The food was fresh & flavorful, the staff was efficient and friendly & the gin selection was great! We would certainly dine here again and tell anyone visiting to do so as well! Such a gem!

The endless tapas deal is amazing value. Hard to stop yourself ordering way more than you can eat! The chorizo, paella and the croquettas were delicious.

We came for dinner on a Saturday night as it had great reviews and free tables (some of the higher rated places in the town were fully booked). Disappointingly, some of the "favourites" had sold out by the time we arrived at 8:30pm. We asked for sourdough bread and aioli, and received some sliced white baguette and some garlic mayo... More

Clarification and reassurance for readers: Our bread is sourdough. Our alioli is always freshly homemade. We do not have and never have had a craft beer menu. More
