A friendly restaurant serving great tapas with excellent customer service - highly recommended. Make sure you go early as it get busy. Also dog friendly and if you're of a 'lefty' persuasion it's a great place to laugh at toffs.

My wife and I had a lovely evening at this welcoming restaurant in the heart of hay on wye. Definitely a place to consider from a wide range of restaurants in the town. Would definitely return if only we were staying longer.
