The menu is ever-changing and there is usually a selection of around 12-14 tapas to choose from. They come within minutes so you can either nibble or build a meal with several tapas dishes at once. There are also main dishes, generally between £7 and £15, and every Sunday we serve a traditional roast with all the trimmings. Please note - we do not take table reservations.
