Ebullient Salt Yard's fizzy blend of Spanish and Italian tapas ‘never disappoints', whether you're among the crowds at the elbow-to-elbow bar or down in the less animated basement. Top-drawer regional provisions run all the way from salchichón ibérico to Sicilian ficu goats' cheese, but the kitchen also delivers carefully crafted small plates packed with stonkingly fresh flavours. Confit pork belly with rosemary-scented cannellini beans and the near-legendary stuffed courgette flowers drizzled with honey continue to get star reviews, but also check out the ‘best ever' crispy soft-shell crab with fennel salad and piquillo aïoli or roast duck with foie-gras mousse, black figs and chestnut if you fancy something more ‘tantalising'. Staff are genuinely helpful, and there's no great pressure to quit your table – so take time to explore the splendid choice of sherries and affordable Spanish/Italian wines from elite producers.
