The drinks took absolutely ages to make and had to queue for a long time. Once the drinks came they were really poor quality and the espresso martini was like cold coffee water. The floor is so sticky and people were sticking to the floor...with their shoes on. The worst part was the toilets. They smell of sick and were not clean at all. I think it could do with a bit of a sorting out. Very expensive for a poor quality experience. Totally overrated I’m afraid.More

Not one alcohol free beer for the allocated driver only tonic water or pop ( rubbish ) Not a very responsible bar. Terrible service . Extremely slow to the point we walked out after waiting ten mins .

The restaurant is situated above a busy bar in the heart of Wickersley. As soon as we entered the restaurant the noise from below disappeared. Bar in the restaurant so drinks ordered. We were recommended to order 4 tapas dishes each, and after a reasonable...wait the 16 dishes were brought to the table. My favourite dish was the belly pork, but the black pudding, chorizo in honey, prawns, fish goujons, squid, stew, buffalo wings and two types of chips (truffle & Parmesan and also spicy chips). It was superb! Every dish was emptied and 1 wing remained so good advice to order 4 each. We sat and had more drinks after the food but couldn’t manage a dessert. The staff were excellent and very attentive and the food and premises were superb. Bill was £120, but we left £140 as we had all really enjoyed it. Great place to eat. Highly recommended.More

Visited as part of works Christmas do. Although it gets super busy, it’s got a great atmosphere. I love the cocktail list and the offer is great too. I never ordered food but the pizzas were home cooked and looked delicious. So did the tapas....I will definitely be back to eat.More

The arrogant bar staff didn’t even acknowledge that the three of us were stood there for 10 minutes! It’s not as it was busy., we were stood with one other lady and 4 rude bar staff chatting and laughing just not serving customers. Terrible attitude,...terrible service, terrible staff! Simply rude!More

Been for tapas a couple of times and have to say we absolutely love it. Great selection all well sized for the price. I’d certainly recommend the mussels and chorizo. Nice cocktails too.
