This is a great bar/restaurant offering wonderful food with great service.The afternoon special is any choice of 3 tapas and a bottle of wine for £20. The tapas menu has great choices,but the hake,crab pate and the garlic prawns are particularly nice.

Had food here a few times! Lovely. Staff are really friendly and helpful. Seen live music there and always a good atmosphere. It’s obviously a busy little place but that’s because it’s good at what they do!

They are child friendly and staff are great with the kids. However, I dont think they do a kids menu (possibly do a kids sunday roast) although if your going for tapas its not a big deal as your sharing dishes anyways. :)
