“Not great!”
Reviewed 28 July 2014 via mobile

Came here for something different, expensive for the tiny portions, left hungry!! They tried to add extras onto our bill, till we queried it. Surely you check before handing bill over. Rude staff, not a place i'd hurry back too. Each to their own though!

We are sorry to hear of your experience with us.
We truly appreciate every review as it highlights to us which areas we need to improve.

Tapas are a variety of small savoury Spanish dishes, often served as a snack with drinks, or with other tapas as a meal, they are not supposed to be large portions, which is why we usually recommend three dishes per person. In spite of that we truly believe in quality over quantity and are sorry that you did not feel the same way.

I can only apologize also for the issues with your bill, we are a busy bar and restaurant an have a number of open checks at once, but i am sure that once mentioned to a member of staff this issue was sorted.

I hope this experience hasn't completely ruined your opinion of us and we would love to see you back to try and change your opinion

“Yum!”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

Visited with a group of work colleagues and was extremely impressed that the Gluten Free choices were highlighted on the menu as I always struggle eating out and sometimes feel embarrassed to ask!! Food was very nice! Waitress was very friendly and made up some drinks in a bigger jug for us all to share as we all loved it but was only on the menu as individual portions! I will return!

“Perfect for a Saturday...”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

This is perfect if you have been shopping with company and want a nice glass wine with nibbles on comfy sofas in the bar downstairs or a nice meal for 2 or more upstairs we Love the riverside. One of our favourite restaurants in town and further. Enjoy :-)

“Nice lunchtime tapas”
Reviewed 12 July 2014 via mobile

Popped in for late lunch. Had a couple of salads and a couple of tapas. Not bad at all. Good service, tasty food. Will give the restaurant a try and maybe do the 6 tapas and wine deal in the next few months
