Lovely place, service great, food good and they kindly gave my sisters 95 year old mother in law a chocolate cupcake and fizz as it was her birthday.
She was so thankful!

Lovely food and great service
Busy place, several people turned away so make sure you book.
We went to celebrate my daughter’s birthday and they even came with a cake and candle which was a great touch

It was our first experience of Tapas so we were not sure how it worked but the waitress explained everything as well a guidance sheet on the table. Food was lovely and served promptly throughout. The restaurant was quite busy but not full so it was pleasantly quiet although there was plenty of chatter. The staff were very polite and friendly and waved goodbye at the end of our visit.
A pleasant experience.

Very welcoming family run bistro. The tapas was excellent and one of my guests was not keen on venison and it was instantly changed. No problems what so ever. A very enjoyable evening.

We had the most amazing food tonight, thank you for all the delicious dishes that kept appearing at our table. What a lovely way to say goodbye to 2021 and toast the new year in with wine and a sparkly strawberry prosecco/gin. Wishing all the staff at the Selkie the very best for 2022 xx

Perfect belated birthday/ Christmas Eve Tapas
Food was served in minutes and various dishes came within a short time frame, tasty and moreish, just enough in each dish, washed down with a nice red wine.
Staff were efficient and in no rush to send us one our way even although we were their last customers of the day, and thank you for the complimentary cup cake for my birthday
Would and have recommended 😀

First time there, was looking forward to choosing from their lovely menu, as didn't know it was tapas night. However, It did not disapoint !!! Although, I would have appreciated a tapas menu showing what was what, due to being hard of hearing, also the server was quietly spoken with a mask on. However, the server was excellent & greatly appreciated. He did reiterate the dishes while placing them down, and assured us that anything that wasn't suitable could be subituted / replaced to our needs. All in all a lovely peaceful, tasty meal, full of fresh ingredients at great prices. Highly recommended 👌
