Great Food & Great Service

Popped in and was given a great service from the moment we arrived, I would truly recommend a visit. The food was amazing and cooked fresh and exactly as described on the menu. The owners really made us feel welcome

Its ok if you want a typical loud and lairy bar with loads of blokes in it ! I went with my wife and felt a bit uncomfortable for her - the drinks are not cheap and the measures are not typically Spanish and would be more suited to a UK pub with optics as you can hardly tell there... More

The new owners are both friendly and run a very good reasonably priced clean establishment. The food was of a very high standard my only gripe would be that they were a bit stingy with the chips.We will certainly be back again later in the year.

These three people run a very friendly and welcoming establishment. When I asked if I could watch the Bath Rugby match they organized it in seconds. Worth a visit.
