This is the first and last time we will ever set foot in this place, service was appauling could only compare it to faulty towers,such a shame because the food was really nice...... Even though it came out in dribs and drabs, very dissapointed with overall service and ignorant staff.

Went to the Rake on a Friday night with my boyfriend and 2 other couples. We had a fantastic time. The food was delicious - and you get plenty of it! We had 12 dishes between us and we were all stuffed. The chorizo in red wine was gorgeous. The red wine was lovely and I liked the relaxed feel... More

Visited on a busy Saturday evening in February 2015. Food comes out when it is ready which is good as this means it is very hot. Portion sizes are very good and well worth the prices including a variety of 'specials' that are always changing. Great atmoshpere and the desserts look fantastic. A very good selection of drinks including their... More

Only thing that made it drop a mark is the staff. it isn’t a massive complaint, but it seems they can't keep up with what the table have actually ordered. 3 times we had them trying... More

Lots of choice for diners, with authentic Spanish tapas dishes. Portion size is ideal. There were 14 of us and we ordered two dishes each which was plenty. Staff were friendly and helpful. Food arrived slowly so you were not faced with all the dishes at once getting cold. A great experience.

Drinks were quickly served and we set about the menu. Now we did gorge ourselves but each bit of food was an good as the last. In particular the... More
