About

Number 23 is a British Tapas Restaurant where you can enjoy delicious, unique, high quality food, in a relaxed & friendly environment.
We are a family run business and opened in February 2013 by myself and my sister, Ceri, set in a building with amazing character, dating back to the 1500's.

At Number 23 we know what counts: excellent food, great service and a friendly atmosphere - they're all here and so much more.

Lovely fresh tapas, great selection of vegetarian options. We wanted a discreet, cosy restaurant to meet up and found it tucked away with a lovely exterior. Welcoming and attentive staff though they had to keep going through a back door near our table, where we caught the draught each time.
However, we had such a good time the staff didn't rush us out even though we realised it was time for them to leave too!

Food tasty but a bit on the 'rustic' side. Quick service. Lacks atmosphere. Expensive for what it was.

Overall, a very good experience... as it has been two times before. Wish I could give half-scores as I'd bump up food and value accordingly.

Very busy but expected as it was a Friday evening. Good food... And great company just very noisy. So hearing each other talk was difficult. Even asking for our order was a challenge for the noise.

Bitterly disappointed and will not be returning. Food was average and definitely not enough. The tiny bowls we were given were padded out with manky, soggy salad so what you actually get is a tiny, tiny portion of food and are being charged in the region of £6 for two mouth fulls. Absolute rip off. Party of 6 left feeling hungry and frustrated. We regularly dine out and will not be recommending Number 23 or ever going there again!!!

Wow.....what a great find.

Stumbled across this place when looking for recommendations for the local area and the reviews seemed very good......and now I see why.

Venue, food, atmosphere, staff and value for money all fantastic. The concept of British Tapas intrigued me and it works really well.

If you are in the area and looking for something a bit different this is well worth a visit.

Father's Day lunch
Good food and pleasant ambience. We sat outside as it was so hot which was nice. Would go again as the idea of British tapas was successful with the whole family.
