OUR MENU TAKES STRONG INFLUENCES 
from Barcelona and beyond – it’s very much our ‘take’ on tapas

ALL TAPAS ARE FRESHLY PREPARED
to order and will arrive at your table as and when ready
however, as a general rule the dishes from the top half of the menu are prepared first

WE RECOMMEND TWO OR THREE DISHES
per person, plus perhaps one side between two; however we encourage you to enjoy as little or as much as you like

V dish is suitable for vegetarians
* we use a premium vegetarian substitute for parmesan
