Aside from their lovely tapas in the week (and served on a Sunday), the Sunday roast is super. Really nicely cooked meat, gorgeous veg and loads of gravy. Yum!

Eaten here loads of times and after a long drive it was great as always. Particular fav’s are the chicken & chorizo and the chickpeas & spinach! Try the white Rioja too - robust & different 👍🏻

Apologies only just seen this as no TripAdvisor is not good at notifications. We are getting busier on Friday and Saturday nights so always worth booking just in case. Hope you managed to go. Marianne
