Fantastic tapas and wine, it is snug seating arrangement but very informal. Loved all the tapas tried and portions are plentiful, really enjoyable, great staff and great value, highly recommended.

Very nice food, great vibe to the restaurant, love the style of it. Staff are very nice people, however, I just thought the service was too slow. It took far too long to be seated and far too long to get a drink. It won't prevent me from returning however, as the food really is great!

We checked out the main restaurant and the little tapas bar around the corner and opted for the more informal place. The two restaurants have some crossover but are separated by a curtain. The tapas bar only has a few tables. We didn't have a reservation and they were busy, but we were squeezed into a table right next to... More

The service was good and so was the food. There were just a few niggles, like the main course was actually Luke warm and not hot, unlike the veg which was hot. The whole experience was pleasing, but just let down by the food not being hot.

Love the yard, the food is all freshly prepared in the open kitchen, portions are huge. My tip : only go here if you are hungry , and the starters are about the size of a main course on many other restaurants. Service efficient and very friendly.

Went for lunch and the food was only ok. I had fish and chips and asked for no mushy peas but I still received them. The fish was mainly batter, they open the door to their garden area which also meant I was sitting in a draft.

I went to the yard a few weeks ago , and since it was givin great reviews ,I expected it to be a wonderful dining experience . Although the staff were very polite and I couldn't fault the service , the food fell well short of the high expectations one has of an award winning , highly recommended restaurant .... More
