Have had some wonderful times in here and food however. This visit leaves a bad taste. Seems the previous owner she has moved on and the atmosphere just doesn't seem to be there. There was plenty of food but was very disappointed from my previous times. Don't think the chef has changed but the consistency certainly as. Seemed a bit... More

A good choice for a quick lunch. Tasty food, we had the tapas for two...some bread would have been good to mop up the delicious food.

We have visited the Tapas bar a few times, for drinks and food. Always a good atmosphere and service. Food is average for tapas but we feel you pay a bit much for each dish given how small the servings are.

The Tapas bar is an old favourite but I was reminded how much I love the place when I visited with a friend a few days ago. There is a really good range of tapas to choose from at a reasonable price. The staff are friendly and the food comes quickly.

Our Fit-Lab Christmas party here was great. The party was tailored to our requirements for our staff and customers who all thoroughly enjoyed the food. Suckling pig was delicious as were the tapas, service and atmosphere.

We visited the Tapas Bar for lunch this week. The staff are very friendly, polite and helpful and they showed us to our table where we ordered a Greek Mezze for two for £15.99. This came after just the right amount of wait (10-15min) allowing us time to settle and relax over a cafe con leche. The meal was amazing... More
