I love this bar and have lost a few nights drinking and eating in this place. Great continental beers, good wines, tasty food all accompanied by a great atmosphere! The staff are pretty good too! Only problem is getting a table so you do have to be determined and get there early or wait!

This is a gem of a place - a quirky little bar with lovely tapas, great atmosphere and really friendly staff who made us feel welcome. It made our visit to Keswick and we'll definately be back!

As ever we received a very warm welcome and the Tapas we had was top notch, it was beautifully cooked and presented well and in our opinion great value for money, our Sauvignon blanc went down well....

A great little place. My husband & I went in and throughly enjoyed a couple of awesome pizzas. It has a great atmosphere and it made a real change to find somewhere that actually gave a damn about good friendly service. The Guys working there were really busy but still made time to talk to you and make sure you... More

A great range of continental beers helped accompany the great simple food. We happened to be there on an evening live music was playing. We... More
