Description: Who we are: We are a Spanish style TAPAS BAR. Independently owned and run, which relocated to larger premises in October 2014. This means we are a bar that serves tapas, not a restaurant. Because we are often busy and buzzing, we are not the ideal place for a quiet romantic night out, but we offer a warm welcome to all our and aim to restore you, whether you're in need of food, drink or company. What we do: All our food is prepared here from fresh, locally sourced or imported Spanish ingredients. Our extensive hot and cold tapas menu changes regularly and we list 6-8 daily specials. We have a range of Spanish wines, sherries, beers and spirits. We have some tables in the bar, which can be booked (max 8 people) at lunchtimes or evenings, except Friday and Saturday evenings, when it's first come, first served. Closed Monday lunchtime only, open 6 lunchtimes and 7 nights a week. On Sunday lunchtimes, we serve paella, as is the tradition in Spain, with a choice of mixed, seafood or vegetarian paellas. Advance booking for paella is essential.

“Nice food but pricey”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

The staff are nice and friendly and the place is always buzzing. However, personally, I found the food rather pricey for the amount which was served.

“Excellent food at reasonable prices”
Reviewed 19 August 2014 via mobile

I ate here while staying over the road. Rather than east in the hotel restaurant (warned off by Trip Advisor) I was pleasantly surprised by the excellent food on offer. I had the meatballs and mushrooms, followed by a Spanish creme brulé. All beautifully presented and wonderfully tasty. I'll be back.

Thank Kevin G

“excellent food and service”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

Went for a birthday treat with my partner, was a bit apprehensive about going after reading some of the reviews. Was there early evening and advised that the kitchen didnt open til 630 which was fine, in fact it was getting busier so orders were taken a bit earlier, friendly staff, really lovely food and wine. Had quite a few things off the menu,,cant pick a favourite, but the prawns were so good, as was the Spanish omelette.would definitely go back and would definitely recomment.
