Visited this restaurant with good expectations that was crushed by the poor quality food they presented.

Not very busy . Service was very slow (one table of about 8 seemed to get priority). The three dishes we shared were bland / tasteless. Cannot recommend this place.

Great tapas with a British twist. Every time I have visited the food tastes fresh and good quality ingredients. The menu changes every so often so you don't get bored. Quite pricey but I definitely think you get what you pay for.

Hi Sue, Sorry for the late reply, we don't get many questions on tripadvisor! We cater for a wide range of allergies and have a specific menu showing which of our dishes contain ground and tree nuts. Further to that as we... More
