Tapas / Small Plates
Tempranillo reflects the soul of Spain, inspired by the new wave of deli-wine bars and, more importantly, the bars and eateries of Madrid. Located in the cobbled streets of Backwallgate, Macclesfield, the cozy bar showcases a relaxed atmosphere in both appearance and attitude, with subdued lighting and natural finishings celebrating the original features of its historic home.
We offer a unique wine list comprising a selection of hand picked Spanish reds and whites, alongside rose and sparkling wines. You will also be able to enjoy 'wine flights' which sees three small glasses served simultaneously, offering you the chance to taste the country's diverse range of wines side by side. We will also be showcasing some of Spain's finest sherry, beer and cider.
Our food is just as important and we have created a range of tapas for you to enjoy.

Absolutely delicious. It’s the only place my Spanish boyfriend has deemed acceptable to come to for Tapas. Although he would love to show you the recipe for aioli xx

Lovely place - food is amazing and service was fantastic too. Ben helped with the wine choice and allowed us to have a taste of a couple before deciding.

Found this lovely small restaurant a short walk from our apartment. Excellent food and service. Garlic mushrooms and the chorizo in cider were particular highlights. As someone who was born and bred in the town, before leaving over 30 years ago, it was lovely to see an old building so well restored and used.

We have visited quite a few times and this time around was perhaps the best so far. It was busy because it was valentine's day but that made the atmosphere better. The food arrived quickly and tasted amazing and the staff were all extremely friendly.
