I was looking forward to tapas and some sangria but what I got was my mother very upset from the attitude of the staff. The food was ok and a few of the tapas dishes was nice but everything seemed dirty! There was cob webs everywhere the sangria jugs didn't pour so every time you wanted a drink you would... More

the restaurant is typical spanish basque and you should expect a certain style i.e rough & ready as with most spanish bars restuarants we have visited on our frequent trips to spain (about 4 times a year) the bodega is no different, all we can say is that we have yet to taste any food we have had in spain...

This place was recommended to us. From the outside it looks like a wagon stop and the food is far from the theme they try and present.

Cannot review the food as we didnt stay to eat. Walked into a scruffy damp smelling bar area and asked for a menu. When we saw the state of the stained and tatty menus warning bells sounded. We found the smell overbearing,so left the building immediately. The food may be good, but only one star review just because of the... More

This little pub is tucked away, basic, but what a find. Fantastic home cooked Spanish and English food. Excellent Value for Money. The staff will never fail to make you feel welcome.
