Food lacking flavour

Visited on a Monday evening in March, sat downstairs which was pretty full. Ordered drinks and took menus from the bar. We ordered 11 dishes between 3 of us choosing some typical Tapas fayre like patatas bravas, chicken croquettas, garlic mushrooms, tortilla espanyol, chorizo, and stuffed peppers... read more

Spent some time in here, quite a few drinks and plenty of tapas dishes. The bill was very reasonable and the food was excellent. Large menu with lots of tapas choice. All very tasty. Good service too. For a Wednesday out of season the atmosphere was great.

We went on the recommendation of our son. Unfortunately the restaurant was closed, so we had tapas in the bar, it was difficult to read the menu as its quite dark in there. We had paella, monkfish wrapped in parma ham, garlic prawns & calamari. All of these we disappointing, the Calamari was clearly out of a bag, the monkfish... More

Spotted this bar on a birthday weekend away and had high hopes - which were dashed as soon as we walked through the door. Rude arrogant bar staff who completely ignored us and even worse was the attitude of a waitress who we asked for a table.. instead of telling us we'd have to wait for a table she pulled... More

Great place to unwind after walking the fells or around the lake. Never tried the food, but those around us who did seemed content with their selection.

Been here many times and have raved about it on here before, unfortunately not this time. The food was gorgeous despite waiting a long time for it but the staff just don't give a toss, whether that's because there's not enough of them I'm not sure. 1 lad at the bar couldn't even bother himself to go through to the...

We went in at a peak time on a Saturday night. The food was really tasty even though it took over an hour to come. Luckily we had some good sangria to help pass the time. The staff just didn't seem interested and were pretty rude. Never came over to ask if we were ok and we had to ask... More

A cosy busy place with a fun atmosphere, we popped in for drinks only. A bit expensive but the cocktails are special, had a nice night.
