have been here now 3 times and each time it has been a taste experience, only eaten from the Tapas menu from summer to winter changes have been made but the selection is always beautifully presented by lovely, helpful, knowledgeable friendly staff. Excellent wine list.

Pop in here on quite a regular basis ,the staff are all very attentive and friendly and the atmosphere ,range of drinks and food offered are everything I expect from a place that is pitching itself above the competition and creating its own place built on reputation within the area .

visited Origins with partner and parents for family get together. The decor, atmosphere and very friendly, attentive staff make this an "easy 5", together with the vast menu of vegetarian, meat and fish tapas superbly cooked and tastefully presented. My only problem is that myself and partner don't live nearer! Excellent and memorable :)

The White Lion pub had struggled to be successful for many years before it was re-opened as a tapas/wine bar a few years ago. Given its location and history I wasn't optimistic about its chances of success or about the prospect of it turning out decent food. I was wrong on both counts. The place is packed on weekends and...

I came here last week with my daughter. It was a Friday lunchtime and I'd booked and so we were really surprised to be the only 2 diners there. I can't understand why it was empty because the food and the service were excellent. It was nice to see interesting and different choices on the menu. We went for the... More

We visited Origins @ the White Lion with a few friends on for a birthday evening meal, and upon entering, we were greeted with warmth and an atmosphere that was as welcoming as its laudable customer service. The whole menu was full of original and quirky wonderful Tapas dishes. At every visit to the table, the waitress / waiter interacted... More

Have visited a few times now and never been disappointed. Service is very competent, friendly and thorough without being intrusive. Food is delicious, served quickly, piping hot and tastes divine. It's one of those places I always look forward to going back to again and again... you certainly won't be disappointed.

We had lunch here on a weekend recently and thoroughly enjoyed it. We shared 5 tapas dishes between us, and some nuts to get us going. The service was very friendly and competent, and the food was served quite quickly. Everything was piping hot (as it should be) and the different dishes had very distinguished flavours. We had several vegetarian... More
