I really loved the specials, full of fresh ingredients & well cooked. Served in a lovely setting, with friendly serving staff. I personally wasn't a fan of the chips or the patatas bravas as greasy, the the lamb & pomegranate was out of this world. It was me second visit and I'll be going again

An old building brought to life by a clever designer who has used some interesting ideas to create a welcoming bar and restaurant. The simple menu is well set out with advice for the new diner, how many tapas dishes you may wish to order. The huge sweet olives are a must have, and you can watch chef preparing the dishes such as Russian salads, a tasty fat free lamp dish with a refreshing salad which I enjoyed or one of the dishes containing their signature dishes featuring octopus

The house wine was the perfect accompaniment for a lunchtime break. One visit is not enough.

This was my first visit with a friend, the setting is nice and we had a warm welcome! We ordered a mixture of tapas including lamb shoulder, octopus and pork cheeks! Unfortunately the food was a let down, it was not fresh and pretty tasteless! The manager/owner lost his temper with a member of staff when we were there and kicked a wall, not very professional and everyone felt a bit awkward, we won't be back!

The restaurant is beautiful we sat downstairs. Hard tall bar stalls so not great if mobility is an issue but they were fine for us. I loved the decor and the coat hooks everywhere. The atmosphere and lighting, music etc are all perfect. It has a beautiful feel to it.

The staff are genuine and friendly, they are perfect and it's nice that it's not full of teenage waitresses.
The food is exquisite. Home made and cooked to order. Not a microwave in sight.

You have to try the sangria and the scotch eggs. They are both incredible.

We will be back. It's my new favourite restaurant
