“Tiny but goody - and they do gluten free beer!”
Reviewed April 25, 2014

Great little upmarket place with just a few seats and a small bar to prop up next to. They have an excellent range of wines and beers including a gluten free beer option; which is highly unusual offering. It's not a cheap option but this brings in a decent clientele and as it's sitting in close quarters perhaps that's not a bar thing!

My husband had the GF beer and announced it to be excellent

Friendly owner-staff and decent nibbles from the tiny kitchen which is outside patio doors along with the miniature courtyard for outdoor and private dining.

They also have a a few seats outside at the front for when the weather is fine

Friendly vibe and decent music which is background and does not get in the way of conversation - magic!

“Great atmosphere”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

Awesome little spot, great atmosphere and service. Don't go too hungry though, portions are quite small and pricey as too get full but delicious and a good match for your wine. I totally recommend a visit to this great wine bar

“Fantastic tapas, service and seat in the courtyard”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

We ended up trying most of the tapas menu - highly recommend the triple baked potatoes and the goats cheese, date and pancetta dish, and both desserts. If you are after a 3 course, fine dining experience this is not the place to come. It is a cool bar with great owners, fantastic chef and a lovely courtyard to enjoy the fantastic food. Make sure you try it. Terrific wine and beer suggestions too. Well priced too.
