Been here a few times now. This place has a great atmosphere and cosy dining area. Service is always great. Food a little on the pricey side (especially when you like to have lots to try) but portions per plate are large. We chose really well last night and every dish complemented each other perfectly.

My friends and I went for a meal around 4.30 on a Sunday afternoon not knowing what to expect. At this time it was reasonably quiet, but within an hour it was packed and I would recommend you book a table. We ordered about 10 dishes to share between us, expecting the usually small portions of tapas, but when the...

Visited this amazing restaurant for the first time whilst meeting friends for dinner. This place has a wonderful relaxed atmosphere and dinner was delicious with many superb dishes on the menu. The owner, his wife and staff were welcoming and attentive. We also stayed over in one of the beautiful classy bedrooms above the restaurant and the decor is stunning,...

It is therefore with regret I post a less than satisfactory review following a booking for my Husbands Surprise 70th Burthday party in 7th January. I have no issue with the food - as tasty as ever - but feel it has...

This place offers great food, we have been a number of times and we have always had a very good meal. The tapas portions are generally larger than usual, and some of the dishes do come with a side salad or some potatoes which isn't described, so the first few times it can be a little difficult not to order...

We got there for 5pm as they opened, got a very friendly welcome. No rush to be seated so sat at the small bar made pretty with...

A great place for an overnight stay and dinner. We were greeted warmly by Jack who showed us up to our large room. (Please note this accommodation is not suitable for people with disabilities - have to go up to flights of outside stairs). The room has been very tastefully renovated - parts of the inn date back to the...
