While staying in Barnstaple recently we ate here twice as it was so good. The range of tapas is extensive and the food is delicious. Also, excellent service.

Good range of meal options with outdoor seating available - lovely on a sunny day. Specials available, which were reasonably priced. One downside - we ordered scampi but they had no tartare sauce. However, they did provide a lemon mayonnaise, which was very tasty.

We stopped off for a few drinks one Saturday afternoon. We sat outside. Busy road but pleasant enough. Staff are very pleasant. Good range of wine at not bad prices. Will definitely return.
