‘Funky, fun and great food’, is one reader’s verdict on this ‘slightly chaotic’ but lovable tapas joint within the Church Street Hotel. Cured meats (including fine ibérico de Bellota jamón) are hand carved at the central bar, and the menu mixes staples such as tortilla and croquetas with more unusual dishes that introduce the exotic flavours of the Maghreb and beyond. Seared rabbit comes with chickpeas, cumin and Moroccan chakchouka, while a rich aubergine and coriander stew strikes a Middle Eastern note. At lunchtime, the menu heads down Mexico way with hearty burritos and tacos alongside a reduced tapas selection – although Spain rules the wine list, which boasts some ‘really affordable and interesting labels’ and a handful of food-friendly sherries. A new basement bar has doubled capacity at this moreish Moorish charmer.
