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.

Very small pub with outdoor seating. Tapas deal was really good, all the dishes were tasty. House wine nice. Cocktails looked good though we didn't try them.

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.

Very wet night but managed to book a table at the high seating by the window. Great tapas, a wide choice of meat, fish & veggie. Lovely selection of local gins & wine great value for money.

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.

Good food, helpful staff. Unfortunately the tables & benches were very sticky not sure if it’s the cleaning agents they use for Covid, but if it is should get new products!!!
