Finish working hard all day, hunger strikes, phone the wife and meet in The Ava for 5.30pm. No waiting, order the meal, a glass of wine, best way to end a working week......guaranteed. Try it.

The Ava is a firm favourite. Tapas is excellent. Food is always beautifully presented and tastes wonderful. Service is always friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble. Atmosphere is just right.
