    Fabulous selection of beers with brilliant tapas selection. The music was great too with a chilled house vibe. The service too was nice and friendly. I would recommend and booking advised.

    Lovely place with great beer selection and ambience. Definitely book in advance. Would have given higher rating for food as what we had was excellent but they had run out of some items so we didn't get our first choices - no cheese so no cheeseboard available. 😔Didn't feel rushed out even though they were busy.

    Some great dishes, but some mediocre ones that were bland and seemed to miss some seasoning?! Some were very original and some were like you can get from a deli counter is a rubbish supermarket. Overall, a bit poor - which was a shame!

    Had a pleasant outside evening drink whilst on a short break and thought worthy of an evening meal using the outside seating the following evening. Mid summer, blue sky and warm and terrace perfectly placed to enjoy. Service was excellent and tapas & cocktails enjoyable. Would recommend from our experience. Thanks.

    Food excellent couldn’t fault the 2 different meals we order downside we had to wait 15 minutes for a menu to be brought across and to be asked what we wanted to drink. Then another 5 minutes for those to arrive then another 10 minutes before food order was taken after we asked to order. Place was quiet as it was raining coupe who walked in minutes after us received menus and drinks well before us. Received food 45 minutes after we sat down.

    Booked a table for Tapas Sunday evening. Informed on arrival that Tapas not available on Sundays. Did I miss this on the ifo sites ( and if I did it must be well hidden) We were cross! Had a quick drink and left.
