Called in on a cold, wet weekday morning in Penzance. Inviting from the outside, hospitable and great value tea and coffee on the inside. My cappuccino was a work of art! Places like this deserve to do well.

Come here a lot, either for lunch or for work drinks. Always welcomed with a smile and the staff are great, will cater to your individual needs if required. Tapas menu is lovely, really yummy and flavoursome. My niece thoroughly enjoyed her knickerblockerglory. Drinks are reasonably priced and their beer garden is a must when the sun is shining -...

by far one of the best places in Penzance. The place is busy but the service is efficient but friendly. We had a lovely tapas lunch, very good value and were absolutely full up. Lovely meeting place for friends for lunch and evening too ..

I visited this bar twice in two days for tapas in the evening with friends. The atmosphere is buzzy and staff are friendly and efficient. The tapas is excellent, brilliant choice, good sized portions and the deal of 4 tapas for £11 is enough for two, making it excellent value. Drinks are well priced too. I would return here again...

As we could not decide what to have we ended up with four dishes from the Tapas and shared. We enjoyed ate the lot and were full, it's so nice to be able to have water as when your driving you can't drink and coke and such are not to my liking. It was a 2pm lunch and I never... More
