Been to the Rake a few times, always been a great selection of tasty tapas. Definitely one to book in first as does get busy. Owner really friendly and has a great atmosphere.

The food was amazing as ever. However we were served by an incredibly rude waitress wearing glasses.

Called on a weekday evening and were really impressed. Lots of choice, just tick what you want and the various dishes arrive. We chose 6 dishes between the two of us and had plenty to eat: olives, whitebait, lovely Spanish omelette etc. Good ambience. Staff helpful and friendly. Really is a great spot!

Really lovely food, beautiful traditional decor and staff were very friendly and attentive. They even boxed us our leftovers up! Would recommend and come again (was a bit hot next to the fire though)

Tried this place for the first time on this week on a wed night. We couldn't believe how busy it was for a weeknight. We ordered 4 tapas each , portions are huge so would get 3 each next time. Gorgeous setting and food was amazing. Bar and service staff couldn't do enough to help. Our new favourite place. I... More

Used to love coming to the rake however the past few times we have felt quite disappointed. On our most recent visit we were greeted by a girl at the bar who was quite rude and abrupt but as it was very busy we disregarded the lack in customer service skills and patiently waited to be seated. Anyhow after ordering... More

We have been to the Rake so many times, date nights, family gatherings, works Christmas parties and even NYE. Every time we have been the food has been out of this work. Unfortunately this time the food wasn't enjoyable at all. We left pretty much every dish and when ask if it was okay (clearly wasn't because we hadn't touched... More

The food is good but the portion sizes seems to have reduced and the price has gone up a little, but saying that the food is good. The owner and his wife are great company and very friendly. Make sure you book at the weekend it is busy,

Friends and family had recommended this restaurant however due to its success it can be a little difficult to book a table. We decided to go mid week, it was much quieter than a Saturday or Sunday however it still had a fantastic atmosphere and the service was excellent. The food was truly superb, we honestly could not fault it.... More

I cannot recommend this tapas restaurant enough, it's amazing, the service is always brilliant and the food always better. The tapas portions are very ample, you won't be left hungry! On top of that they now have their own micro brewery and do some wonderful ales and lagers. I absolutely love this place and would eat there every night if... More
