We were lucky to get a walk-in spot along with our two doggies. Such friendly, genuine service and the food and drinks were just incredibly good! We had the Moscow mule with spiced rum and the espresso martini with Baileys! Each tapas dish was so delicious and we left the restaurant feeling so satisfied! Hit the spot – I would have literally ordered every dish on the menu if I could have eaten that much as I loved their take on the different dishes.This is a must visit place!

Visited last night with my wife and two friends. Food was absolutely brilliant. Particularly the beef squewers and bombay potatoes, yum. Lovely pre Christmas atmosphere. Despite being busy service was very good. Really nicely decorated and rustic on a winter's night. Good selection of beers too.
