Ideal for pre cinema snacking, the Tapas menu is great value for money. Our group sampled quite a few of the dishes, all of which were very generous portions. I personally loved the halloumi with sweet chilli sauce and the homemade hummus with pitta. The jalapeño fondue was a little too hot for us, so I'd only suggest ordering it... More

Met up with old work mates, good beer, excellent food, warm welcome, exceptional service. Lots of menu choices and an early bird 2 for 1 makes it super value. Massive thank you to the staff for making the night run so smooth and special.

You know when you go somewhere and it just feels right? This is one of those places. It has a lovely ambience with excellent service and superb food. As it was 3pm, we were struggling to find anywhere that served food and finally stumbled on this gem of a place. The food arrived within 15 mins and it was delicious.... More

We were here about 18 months ago and it was very good. I am pleased to say that the standards have not faltered in any way. 10 delicious Tapas dishes were slightly more than we could eat and the ale was well kept and similarly delicious. Friendly and helpful staff make this a great way to spend time.
