The tapas arrived very quickly after we had ordered them and all seven arrived at once, which suggested that the food wasn't prepared to order - dishes that should have been sizzling were tepid. The 'chorizo' wasn't and, along with the patatas aioli, was served up in a gloopy cheap catering sauce. The rocket salad, at £3.95 for a handful... More

Came hear Monday evening with a large party for our Christmas Work meal. Service was brilliant and food was gorgeous. I had the breaded brie for starters & the braised beef for main. Beef was amazing, fell apart in your mouth..and the Eton mess cheesecake was amazing..however it defeated me. Thank you so much..5 stars all around :)

Informal relaxed restaurant with helpful friendly staff. I'd recommend ordering 3 - 4 dishes per person as they are quite filling and you can always add more. Good food and good value.

Friendly, professional and prompt service plus VERY tasty food. We ordered about too much though so left feeling a little bloated. The hummus, meatballs, paella, and chorizo in the sauce were excellent.

Went for a tea-time meal with some friends, and can't wait to go back. I was surprised at the wide menu choice for their ears bird meal. Food was tasty, well-presented, with generous portions. Staff extremely helpful and attentive.
