We were visiting Ripon en route back from Northumberland. Manchega was a great and unexpected find. Just what we wanted, informal, good food, friendly staff. Pigs cheeks surprisingly good, and so tender.

Just back from tasty, welcoming, tapas restaurant. My friend and i had a lovely easy ozy Tuesday supper. Gambas, calamari, aubergine and goats cheese and THE most fruity fresh bread. Cooking homey, good and cooked to order so extra yum. I will 100% be back.

Had a lovely family meal here. Delicious tapas and excellent bread made on the premises. Staff very friendly and efficient. Well worth booking a table: we went on a Tuesday and it was very busy.

We spent a wonderful evening, really relaxed but buzzing atmosphere, delicious tapas which all came out freshly cooked and not all at once. The staff were really friendly and helpful. Couldn't fault them. We'll be back thank you.
