Out for lunch

Went in to restaurant on off chance, very helpful staff found a table for me and my guest. Just had a light lunch, I had Quattro Formaggio pizza, my guest had a chicken dish. Service was prompt as were the meals. Will return again, thank you Chancel.

Super choice of tapas plates.The deal was 3 for a tenner, but I felt greedy and had four! The potatoes bravas was a big portion whereas the other three were just right. Also came with some bread on the side. Delicious.

This was a very relaxed meal in a small 'bar' with good atmosphere. Good steak and fish supplemented by sauces and French fries.......... Good value - thanks Paddy and Kate!!!!!!
