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.

The first time I visited, I found myself at The Rake Tapas for the company. I usually avoid dining out before I thoroughly checked how the food is cooked and what ingredients each dish has as I eat a very restricted diet due to a health condition - no sugar, no unfermented dairy, no chemicals, additives and no cereals (...

Simple ordering system with tantalising specials board and quality service with a smile, you really can believe that you're in an authentic Spanish Tapas restaurant, especially with the selection of Spanish beers: San Miguel, Alhambra and Estrella, not to mention the range of Spanish Rioja's. The owner always turns up trumps and goes to great pains to ensure his guests... More

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

Had an amazing meal here, more than once. we have been 5 times now and not once had a bad meal. TOP MARKS CHEF!! 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
