Great Tapas, pleasant staff

We went for an early evening visit to have the Tapas, having been before and really enjoyed it this visit did not let us down. The food was still very good all washed down with a nice bottle of wine all inexpensive and well worth a visit.

Visited in February. Food was great value for money. The scampi was piping hot & there was a good choice of beers. The menu could be more diverse but prices were competitive. Service prompt & friendly.

A friendly pub with a wide selection of food choices to satisfy many tastes. I visit quite often and love the goats cheese salad, their chunky chips are great too. Right in the heart of Belper, next to a free carpark.

Friends had the pie, that looked delicious. It was a pleasant place for a light lunch but nothing exciting. The decor is... More

Second time I have stopped off for food, never disappointed, really good choice and good value especially the early doors offers on a Monday to Thursday with the little plates worth trying as they give such a good choice. The place is always clean, warm and comfortable, everything a well run pub should be, just find the beer prices a... More

Having had drinks in this pub for many years, we decided to come for tapas. We chose 10 plates for £30 and expected a long wait. Less then 5 minutes later our plates arrived. Sadly the food was cold and had obviously been pre made and warmed up. Not what a expected from a tapas bar! I had such high... More

Came to Belper to visit the cinema and visited the black swan for a meal before the show. My wife and I had an excellent meal beautifully cooked. The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming.
