Went to El Cafe after a wine tasting next door.. really good pizzas, from wood fired oven, excellent wines and although we didn’t have tapas they looked absolutely delicious at the table next to us.

Description
El Cafe is a spanish cafe bar in the heart of Shipston On Stour. Come down for an authentic Spanish coffee, a selection of Tapas or a few glasses of wine! As in true Spanish style we close when we have finished, we like to fiesta in the evening but in the afternoon we close the kitchen at 2:30pm for our siesta, this is so we can do fiesta!!!
