“So genuinely friendly”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Had visited this bar couple of years ago before owners returned to England and had not been back,but friends recommended it....very glad they did! Service is so warm and friendly,you'll think you've known them forever,and the tapas is superb....I did warn them that they may be breaking trades descriptions act calling it tapas when it's practically a main course! Will definitely go back when next in Spain.

“Highly Recommended”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

Just what I was looking for! Had a lovely night in the company of my family and after dinner the owners also. The food was excellent, a comprehensive menu well described and did not disappoint when it came out.
Will be going back again - well worth trying.

“What a great little place”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

At a recommendation of friends we eventually go to visit and sample their menu. To date, breakfast, tapas and sunday lunch .... All great, but especialy the Sunday Lunch. Try it and you won't be disappointed.

“Just Fabulous”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

Not quite sure what Colin B is talking about - Grumpy old man syndrome?
I think the overall comments and A* ratings on here speaks volumes. Very friendly bar, hosts always make u feel welcome and not once have we had to wait, how can you criticize the staff for taking too long speaking to other customers, clearly showing heartfelt interest in them, sure you would have plenty to say if they were ignorant! We just popped in for a drink, and she brought out various nibbles - how many places do that. Fabulous welcome, fabulous staff, fabulous pub with a warm welsh welcome!!!!! <3
