My wife had her 40th birthday party here. Great venue, nice bar, delicious food and excellent service. I would recommend it without reservation.

We booked a large table for a few friends to celebrate a birthday. We were seated upstairs. As always, the atmosphere and music were very good. Unfortunately, the bar staff were very slow in serving (it wasn't busy). They could do with another couple of people behind the bar as they offer cocktails which take time (and are good). The...

We had a pleasant drink after work with a colleague that was leaving and had enjoyed our time here until later in the evening when the venue is transformed into a club; not the place for wrinkleys, and the manner in which we were ejected from our table was polite but in contrast to the generally friendly good service experienced...

Had my daughters Hen weekend last weekend and on the Saturday night we went to Cuban for Cocktail Making and a meal then on to party the night away. When booking this, all the arrangements were made with Andi, who was so helpful. The cocktail making was really good fun with Harry our bar man. It was not only entertaining... More

We went here for dinner on Thursday evening and having already eaten here once before we knew we'd get good value food and drink. Would definitely recommend the paella - very tasty and full of chicken and seafood. Two for one on cocktails is a great deal and all were attractively presented and tasted excellent. Service was good but one... More

The tapas here is amazing, I want to go back asap to try more of the menu! My favourite dish was the halloumi and chorizo skewers. The drinks are quite expensive but the quality of food makes up for it and there is a lovely seating area outside to sit out in the sun. I've also had a salad here... More

We usually drop in on a Saturday mid-shop and we are never disappointed - we have some of the tapas and the portion sizes are just right for a light bite - good choice of tapas and the burgers are tasty too - cocktails are excellent : )
