Pinchito encapsulates the cool, funky side of Spain that has so engaged tapas-loving Londoners. The scuffed-up space is dotted with cracked leather sofas, and there’s an intriguingly offbeat collage of Iberian-related prints on one of the bare-brick walls. The menu is short and sweet, with the usual line-up of tortillas, patatas bravas and pa amb oli (bread with olive oil and tomato) alongside pork belly with mango and black olives, huevos rotos or baby eels with garlic; otherwise, check out the blackboard ‘tapas del dia’ or the cracking trio of set menus (£20/25/30). Thirsty types have a host of cocktails to choose from, including some tempting Spanish-tinged mixes such as the rebujito spritzer made with Tio Pepe, while the wine list features some fine old sherries and bottles from Spain’s new-wave regions. “Fast” service and a “lively” vibe keep things upbeat.
