Great starters. Very disappointed with my steak, it wasn't very tasty but was very chewy. We were downstairs and it was too dark and too hot. The service however was spot-on

Needed my iphone torch to read the menu... Atmospheric and romantic yes, practical no. Very warm last weekend so without vent, it was a bit too humid. Great staff. Great food. Not... More

We like the relaxed informality, the easy going welcome and service, and the selection of tasty inexpensive food. No pressure.

A lovely bright dining room, really warm welcome and a card signed by the staff to congratulate us was waiting on our table. The food was just as good as I was hoping for and incredible... More

First impressions were that it was quite small, only a few tables but was informed they also have a downstairs dining area too. The staff were fast and friendly, and the menu and wine list offered an abundance of choice!! Our party of 4... More

We booked a family meal here for 6 adults. On arrival our table was ready and we were seated downstairs. The seating area is fairly small and lit mostly by candles but has a good ambiance and you do not feel squashed. The menu is not huge but offers good selection and we were all able to find something we... More

This place is small and friendly, and the wine selection is fabulous. When I'm in the mood for a nice rioja this is my go-to venue. Lovely!
