Visited on a Thursday so fairly quiet. But nevertheless had great evening , felt like we were on holiday not in Coleford. Food and drink good, only had the tapas dishes not a main. Will certainly be going back .

We went here as a special occasion (our wedding anniversary) on the first night of a weeks holiday in the forest of dean. The seating upstairs was nice and we chose a quiet 'ish' table. The food was nice but as other reviewers have said not exceptional. On a very good plus point, as most of their sauces are based on simple tinned tomatoes with some herbs, they don't add flour and so are OK for wheat/gluten intolerant diets. The choice of tapas is good and the flavours are also very good.
The staff were very attentive and helpful and overall we had a lovely meal.

Value for money is very good. Cocktails not stingey on quantity. I felt tapas could of come out hotter, temp wise. Only 3 white wines that i could see but we had the white rioja which was beautiful. Something very beautiful, much needed in FOD . . . Would be a great party venue. Thank you Ritmo

Went on a Saturday night with my sister (a local). She had previously told me that it was the best place to go for nibbles / drinks, and true enough, the atmosphere and vibe were good. It was quite busy, and remained that way the whole time we were there. We decided to have the 7 tapas dishes for Β£16.95, which looked good value for money. I ordered some fairly standard dishes including patatas bravas, albondingas and calamari with garlic mayo. They took a while to arrive, for which the staff apologised and gave us some free soup and bread which was delicious. The tapas dishes themselves were a bit of a disappointment. My potato dish should have come with chick peas in the sauce, but these were replaced with frozen peas. The garlic mayo had been replaced with bbq sauce and everything looked and tasted like it had come from Iceland. Not great quality. We laughed at the replacements as they were so random. My sisters' choices were OK, but again tasted like pre-made items from a discount shop.

The portion sizes were fine, and we couldn't finish everything, but I would have preferred less, better quality food. It's still probably "the place" to go in Coleford, however, as it offers somewhere different to have a drink and socialise.

Never disappointed with food, great value for money. Staff friendly and helpful. Tapas very filling and great tasting. You can also choose from the extensive menu of full meals large portions and anything you can't eat will be boxed up for you to take away with you. Drinks menu is also extensive from wines soft drinks and lagers to cocktails and shorts. We go at least once a month, a great place to go with friends and visitors.
