We nipped into this little cafe simply because it was close to the cinema, and we saw they served tapas. Everything is freshly cooked so you have to wait a little while, but it is well worth it.

We loved this small bar and the tapas here are great. The staff were very friendly and we met some nice people during our vision here. Well worth a visit.

We only popped in for a drink as recommended by a couple we met at our Lodge B&B! Lovely glass of Macabeo white wine and well priced.

Quick lunch visit yesterday when we enjoyed the barbecue pulled pork ciabatta with cheese and a couple of drinks. Great service, decor reminiscent of an Amsterdam cafe bar - very continental!
