Excellent gluten free selection, understand how to avoid cross contamination, great GF beer, very attentive and understanding staff and a generally lovely evening. The only recommendation I could make is a couple of decent GF desserts. We will be back x

we had a great meal. Service was just right, attentive but not over the top. Really enjoyed the food, it's great to order a number of different dishes to try. We are already looking forward to going back.

We visited here yesterday afternoon for the first time and thought the food was really excellent. The tapas style way the food is served really suited us. The staff were very pleasant and friendly and the surroundings congenial. We will definitely be back.
