We say

Welcoming, family-run tapas bar with a solid list of Iberian favourites, such as chorizo, gambas al pil pil and tortilla española. Tapas paellas are a novelty, or you can opt for one of the five main-sized versions, including rabbit and pork or manchego cheese and asparagus. The lunchtime menu (three dishes for £7.99) is particularly good value. The place itself may not have the most attractive exterior but step inside and there's a warm atmosphere that feels authentically Spanish. Venture out to the back, however, and you'll also find a beautiful riverside courtyard garden, a great place to sit back in the sun and enjoy a glass of sangria or two. It would be rude not to!
