“Tapas and cocktails”
Reviewed 25 July 2013

A large group of us dined here and found that the staff were very accommodating and helpful, calling us on the day of our booking to offer us a move inside given that the warm weather forecast hadn't materialised and that we might become chilled sitting outside. Once we arrived, the staff did their utmost to make us feel welcome, and made delicious cocktails. When we ordered a second cocktail, the waiter noticed as he served mine that it didn't look right, so let me try it and then he re-made it when I agreed that it didn't taste as good as the first. The tapas we ordered were fantastic; lots of variety and unusually large portions, and the surroundings were really clean and beautifully decorated. The staff are the Blacksheep's best asset and the reason why I would return.

“Great tapas”
Reviewed 10 July 2013

Out for a stroll not knowing what we fancied to eat we went to the Blacksheep for a drink and we were tempted by their tapas. Had a lovely sharing plater (vegetarian) and an order of calamari. Food was delicious, service was great and the sun was shining.
We love the Blacksheep Bar but this was the first time we had eaten there. Will be returning for food soon!

“Omg - did the cleaners walk, out”
Reviewed 25 June 2013

Lovely location, great outside seating and a wide and Med style menu - but oh my did the cleaners walk -out.

This place is filthy .... outside chairs by 12.30pm still not cleaned down or ready for lunch from night before. Fag butts everywhere, and terrace not seen a brush in week.

Come on are you mad to not keep this place as it deserves ???

“3.25/5”
Reviewed 30 May 2013

Ok lunch. I say ok, I only ordered a sandwich, I wasn't really expecting anything spectacular. Staff were polite, food was quick, 10 mins. I mainly come here on a night out. Great vibe. Lots of fanny.

“Brilliant night out !”
Reviewed 27 May 2013

Was staying near Ryde for the Bank holiday weekend and was looking for a bar with atmosphere.
Happened on the Blacksheep and had a brilliant night out.
Staff were extremely friendly and courteous, tapas style menu perfect for our requirements, fantastic range of drinks including cocktails, live music of an excellent quality.
Cannot praise the staff highly enough.
Would strongly recommend a visit.
