I came here for a work lunch last week and I literally cannot find a single fault with it. Lovely food, all very fresh and amazing staff. The wine was also excellent. Highly recommended.

Been here once before and was very happy but my visit Sunday was very disappointing dry chicken unable to swallow, whitebait that had a very strange taste, Spanish omelette that was all potato without any veg....not very nice at all won't be going back and can't recommend the place.

We decided to pop along the 'lanes' to see if we could find a tapas to fit us all in, especially with the baby. Yup they were more than welcoming. The quickly moved some tables around, found space for the pram and sorted us out. The staff helped us decide what to chose and were very patient. The service was... More

Very attentive, friendly service in an intimate setting. Nice food, nothing to write home about, but nothing to complain about either. A solid 4/5

Nice and friendly atmosphere and service, this is definitely the best thing about the place, staff are nice and make you feel welcome. Food is just ok, I've had better tapas in other places. Veggie options very boring, most things seem to be potato-based. We also had a fish special which was probably the nicest of the tapas we tried... More

Went on a Saturday lunch time. Certainly would recommend to book which I had done as it is very popular. The service was excellent despite how busy it was & first rate with the tapas dishes we had chosen. We ordered four dishes & because the portion size was very good this was enough for us being that it was... More

We visited on a Saturday. The restaurant was very busy and I would recommend booking. Food very tasty and portion sizes good. The meat balls were the best we have had! Service very attentive and fast. A busy lively restaurant.

We phoned a week before for a table on a Saturday night and the best they could offer us was 5.30pm with a guarantee from us that we'd be away by 6.55pm as they were fully booked from 7pm onwards. When we arrived they were already full with just our little table ready and waiting for us. It is a... More

Went here on a Saturday night to celebrate my birthday. Didn't want a large meal so thought that lots of smaller ones would be better. Lots of choice and good sizes. Small restaurant and had a Hen party there too but they were well behaved! Good value at £26 per head with plenty of wine! Accommodated my gluten free requirement... More
