Gorgeous small plates with a real upbeat Spanish feel. All dishes are seasonal with weekly (if not daily) changing specials and a 100% Spanish wine list. Just Delicious from start to finish.
What we are listening to…
July’s Dreamiest Neon
This just sums up how we feel at least 50% of the time. We loved this bespoke we made and the colour is one of our faves. A true celebration of the love we have for a lazy lay in.
This month is all about the cocktails and this recipie is a sure winner. Give your Gin and tonic a refreshing summery twist with fresh watermelon juice and mint. No time to prepare at all you will wow you’re your guests with this cocktail. Just add a handful of ice into a glass, pour in your gin, watermelon juice, top it off with tonic water and garnish with lime and mint – how easy is that. Minimum effort, maximum impact.
We can’t get enough of…
Mare of Easttown
Now we may be late to the party on this one but if you haven’t already watched this series you must! Kate Winslet plays Mare Sheehan, a small-town Pennsylvania detective who investigates a local murder as her own life crumbles around her.
In an interview Kate described this as her most challenging role to date and all we can say is we were gripped.
This seven part series explores the dark side of a tight community and takes a closer look at how previous tragedies within her community and family affect the relationships around us and our present. A must watch.
