Thank Caroline D

Hello Caroline, I am sorry you seem to have had such a terrible experience. We have searched our booking records and can find no evidence of your visit. As is evident from our reviews, we consistently get high praise for our award winning, fresh tapas, gin, cocktails and very friendly service. I am therefore somewhat perplexed that you made no...

I visited tonight with a friend, we weren't sure if to have a takeaway or to try the food. I'm glad we chose to eat in. Myself and a friend had the course meal, which we loved! Plus drinks and an amazing dessert. Bill came to around £53 which was fairly priced and left a tip. I will most definitely... More

This is a gem of a restaurant, just down from the Michelin stared "Thomas Carr at The Olive Room". It has far too relaxed an atmosphere for a Michelin star but the food is excellent and also fantastic for vegetarians. The service is excellent, fast if you want it and as slow as you like if you are not in... More

Had the all you can eat tapas deal and it was more than enough. The sangria was great and I loved the gin's on offer. Whilst I had sangria on this occasion as a gin drinker I thought the amount on offer was fantastic. The decor was lovely and from the outside it looks quaint and cosy.

This is the second time we've been here and it was even better than the first. We came last year for my birthday and we were impressed with the endless tapas menu and cocktails so decided to come back again this year, as we were back in the area and we weren't disappointed. There is endless authentic tapas food which... More

Myself and my husband ate here last Saturday. We hadn't booked a table in advance we arrived at about 8.30 and were told we could have a table at 9pm. We were ok with this so grabbed a seat in the bar area for a drink. We both enjoy gin and their gin selection was great. We went for the... More

We happened upon this place by accident as four restaurants we tried on the way were fully booked. We were so glad they were in the end. They couldn't fit us in the restaurant but offered us the bar area which we were happy to accept. We were only eating after all, not celebrating anything special. The area was tastefully... More

We often visited this Tapas bar, enjoying the warm welcome and good food. We had not visited for over a year and did not realise it had changed hands. The changes the new owners have made are subtle, tweaks to the menu and the flavours which have enhanced the food. Decor is much the same and service is as attentive.

Came out for my boyfriends birthday and we couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised. With weather rather disappointing our entire visit so far, the food and hospitality here were just what we needed. Pleasant, delicious and endless supply of tapas! Would definitely come again.
