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.

    Always struggle to get a table so best book a week ahead to avoid disappointment as venue is small. Excellent wines, great food and brilliant staff. You won't be disappointed

    Excellent tapas - clever menu makes choices difficult - so you need a large party so you can order one of everything! The food was lovely with interesting items done creatively - the garlic prawns done in butter and lemon juice were fabulous… good selection of wines and beers, authentic vibe… top marks.

    Love Tempranillo! Amazing food and atmosphere. It was very busy when we went, which gave a great atmosphere but a long wait for food - the wine kept flowing though, so we were happy! Love the sardines.

    Another good experience at Temperanillo. Simple tapas food with some nice wines which are all available by the glass. Service friendly and efficient and a pleasant atmosphere in the restaurant. Prices have certainly increased since we first visited a couple of years ago!

    Husband found the bar area very noisy, due mostly to 3 customers just drinking at the bar ,who were very loud. Next time will ask for a table in lower area. Otherwise really good atmosphere and will be back
