This “charming, unpretentious neighbourhood tapas restaurant” in an old Southwark pub is a “good option near the South Bank and Young Vic theatre”. “The food is reliable if a little old-fashioned” and comes in “proper portions”. The place “can be noisy – the staff, however, are darlings!”. There’s “a private room for hire upstairs”.

“Fair value” for “authentic” scoff is to be had at this pub-turned-tapas-bar in a side street between Tate Modern and Southwark tube, which “feels like an old friend” for its many regulars, although “the experience you get slightly depends on how well you get on with the owner” (who is mostly “amiable”, but on a bad day, “grumpy”).

“Tapas that’s a cut above-the-norm” helps makes this “slightly cramped” former boozer in a Southwark backstreet a favourite pre-theatre pit stop, and “great after-work place”.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
