We have created a dining environment with a classic mix of the stylish and the contemporary, within the wonders of one of the City's most historic buildings.Split across three floors, the ground floor and first floor serve as a dining area, whilst the cellar has been transformed into a magnificent cocktail bar area, with the low brick ceilings creating an intimate and relaxing area, perfect for a pre or post dinner drink. Our outdoor courtyard also has seating for up to 40 people, perfect for a bite to eat or a coffee in the sunshine.We aim for this landmark building to once again become synonymous with top class dining in the City of Worcester. We are closed Sundays but available for private hire (Open bank holiday Sundays)

Amazing!!!

Quickly becoming one of my favourite places to eat in Worcester! We came on a Saturday lunch time, with the option of sitting outside - it was a very warm day. We were originally sat on a table, but were being dripped on my a leaking gutter. We asked to be moved to the adjacent table - staff were... read more

Took daughter and her partner there last Saturday. Despite being a very busy night, service was lightning fast, intelligent and friendly. We ordered an assortment of 10 tapas and wolfed them all down greedily. Portions are generous, and the tapas outclassed any of the ones I've tried in London. Get on the train!

I've eaten here many times and never been disappointed. Food and service always good. Last visit, four of us shared the special early evening offer of 10 tapas dishes for £40, which was excellent value. We made our own choice of dishes and enjoyed them all, including patatas bravas, halloumi, paella and bruschetta. Have also lunched on the Greek Sharing... More

Have been here several times for birthdays and anniversary, have always had excellent food, and the service has been excellent, even when they have been very busy. The atmosphere is buzzy without being intrusive. Go for an aperitif downstairs first, the ambience is wonderful.

Booked as a group booking, this meant we had to pre-order from a different menu, two courses for £20. We would have liked the chance to order one course meals for less money but that was not allowed. Meals were good, and good choice of meals suitable for a coeliac within the party. Good portions but felt they were a... More

Myself and my boyfriend were booked in for an anniversary meal, there was a slight mix up with the table bookings, however this was dealt with straight away, the service Adam gave us was fantastic and we couldn't have been happier. We had the tapas and can honestly say it was one of the best meals we have ever had,... More
