We stopped in for lunch, after reading the reviews on here, during a Christmas shopping trip to Worcester. Very quaint little place, clean and comfy. Staff are very friendly and very attentive, service was actually the best I have experienced for a very long time. Could of eaten everything off the menu, we went for the 2 course lunch meal....

We came across this restaurant while just walking around. It looked good so we booked a table for the evening (booking is probably a good idea as looked very popular). We had the tapas and were very impressed with the quality of the food and the portions. There were 3 of us and we ordered 6 portions of tapas between... More

Don't bother going here for the food - it's very very average - but it's busy and obviously a place to go to.

Came for a Saturday night meal with my partner. Arrived early and made use of the downstairs cellar bar. Had a couple of really nice gins from their extensive selection and a cocktail before going upstairs to the table for our booking. All the food was really well presented and tasted delicious. We had great service throughout. Definitely would recommend... More

Whilst shopping at the Victorian market we fancied more than just the street hot dogs, although they were superb so this Tapas, Family run restaurant seemed like a fair gamble. It paid off, the bread, food and wine were fantastic, good service and excellent tapas, chicken wings weren't the best but the range of other dishes, the lamb, potatoes etc.... More

Recommended by friends and not disappointed. Christmas menu was the evening menu. Plenty of choice and excellent food. New Gin menu was a pleasant surprise. Service and welcome very good. Will return when we visit Worcester again.

Had a fantastic meal with my friend, thank goodness we booked as it was very busy. We ordered from the tapas menu and the recommended 3 dishes each as a main was more than enough. Paella, fish cakes and halloumi were exceptional and the flatbreads really lovely. Wine not overly expensive and staff very friendly. Lovely fresh food, would recommend... More

Went for a family celebration on a Saturday evening. Had booked in advance for an early meal and we were advised that our table was booked out again at 8.30. Not a problem - or so we thought. We ordered drinks and a sharing tapas for starters, drinks arrived promptly but after 45 mins had still not received any food.... More

We have created a dining environment with a classic mix of the stylish and the contemporary, within the wonders of one of the City's most historic buildings.Split across three floors, the ground floor and first floor serve as a dining area, whilst the cellar has been transformed into a magnificent cocktail bar area, with the low brick ceilings creating an intimate and relaxing area, perfect for a pre or post dinner drink. Our outdoor courtyard also has seating for up to 40 people, perfect for a bite to eat or a coffee in the sunshine.We aim for this landmark building to once again become synonymous with top class dining in the City of Worcester.
