Nice relaxed atmosphere, tasty tapas, nice pizza and friendly and chatty staff. I didn't try the coffee as we were there in the evening, but I imagine it is lovely ( it certainly smelled lovely as we walked past during the day. A really nice place.

Dropped in last night, managed to tuck ourselves in and shared a pizza and some tapas. The staff are great, relaxed and with a cracking sense of humour. Only problem - you need to decide between proper, local beer or Belgian beers. Yes, it's cramped, but we thoroughly enjoyed it and will return soon.

Wonderful live music on Wednesday night and the range of drinks they have in this place just seems to be getting better every time I visit, there were two guys working and they were knowledgeable, friendly and efficient. Most of the women were wearing garments someone on Coronation Street would have worn to scrub their front step in sometime in... More
