Just popped in for lunch after a walk and enjoyed lovely tapas on the terrace. Although cold, the food made up for any discomfort. Fantastic, highly recommended.

Loved the food, the service was good. Wine was very nice, but expensive, but I always complain about restaurant mark up on wine. We were the only people in the terrace at lunch time, hence the low atmosphere score.

We had such a fabulous evening. Thank you to our amazing host (sorry we didn't get your name) who was exceptional. And also to Louise who helped me make the booking and actually moved us to a different location to make sure we could be under cover - a good thing as it was pouring for most of the evening. It's the first meal out we've had for a year and it couldn't have been better. Not sure how we'll follow it - maybe just come back to you! Thanks :)

Excellent food, excellent service. Felt extremely covid safe. We visited for a birthday lunch for my mum and it was great.

A lovely, welcoming atmosphere. A well needed break in an otherwise difficult day. Cheered me up no end. It's nice to go somewhere and be treated as an individual, where staff take an interest and chat - especially if you are on your own, which can sometimes feel/be awkward. Lovely food and wine. I was (almost) able to imagine I was in Spain.

Thanks so much for looking after us yesterday. Everyone was very helpful and welcoming, the food was amazing and stayed really hot even though we were outside. Couldn’t have asked for anything more! The Sherry flights were great and we learnt a lot from the very knowledgeable staff. Everyone really went out of their way to ensure we had a great experience - which we definitely did. Wouldn’t hesitate to book again. Thank you!

Tasty food, with interesting unusual sherries, in an out of the way spot with a back yard converted into alfresco "covid" eating.

Disastrous system of ordering via QR code! Took the waiter a long time to explain the system....then it didn't work properly. So guess what??? He took our order with a pen & paper . We booked specifically for the restaurant directly opposite 35 fossgate (where my mum lives) but had to go up the road (she has had 2 knee operations in the last 2 months!) We were disappointed

Lovely table in the sun. Very attentive young man helped us. Not keen on having to use new fangled way of ordering etc. Food was very good - some dishes seem better value than others. Especially loved the dates in jambon, the mussels and the tomato bread.
