Really friendly and helpful service, lovely food, and the sherry 'flight' was great - such a good idea to offer three small sized samples of different sherries - totally in keeping with the idea of tapas. A very enjoyable evening, thank-you.

2nd year in a row I've been for a Christmas party and it didn't disappoint. Once the food got going, it never seemed to stop! And there were 13 of us. Highly recommend

We have been before at this time of the year when it is very busy but on this occasion we found the service a bit slow. We had a very good waitress, however, who did chase up our order and it didn’t detract from a lovely evening with some excellent food.

Got the table we requested and everything was 1st class - from discussing the wine we wanted to being able to have the dessert platter even though it wasnt on the menu we were given. The food was perfect and the atmosphere was lovely and a real buzz to it even though it was lunchtime. Will definitely be returning.
