I never comment on Trip Advisor but just had to let everyone know about this ‘Little Gem’. We have visited the Rake Tapas several times and on every occasion the food has been superb, so tasty with an excellent choice of dishes and a great range of specials and desserts. Staff are friendly and offer a lovely warm welcome, courteous... More

What a shame this restaurant which we used to love has turned into a sham! Service was terrible- had to ask 3 times where our drinks had gone? Food greasy! Ordered the steak and prawns- turned out it was in a greasy sauce with chilli on the top- I complained to the waitress. The reply from the chef was that's... More

We visited as we love tapas. Staff were friendly and we had a window seat that was good. The menu was interesting and lots of choice for veggies. Had to ask for clean cutlery and when we got the food, although feta was good, salad had brown edges and was obviously past it's best. Loos were grubby, jug with cream... More

Recommended by friends but unfortunately didn't live up to expectations. Thirty minutes late in being shown to our table and not a murmur of apology. Meatballs arrived covered in cheese although not mentioned on the menu. When we commented we were told that other people had made the same comment - well why not change the menu? Ordered a second...

Bank holiday visit, and we were not disappointed. We have visited this a few times and are never disappointed. The food is always fresh and served by friendly staff. The pub itself is comforting and makes you feel relaxed

We ventured again having read the reviews after feeling let down with a visit a few years ago. The mushroom + goat's cheese with chorizo was delicious (special) but the garlic chicken consisted of two skinny thighs - at nearly £6 for the dish I thought it was skimped. The patatas bravas we had to ask for and were told... More

Was a little bit wary as we had never tried Tapas before so so glad we did now. Food was amazing, lots of choice at various prices, I would suggest choosing 3 dishes per person as the potions are ample. Staff were very attentive and helpful.
