La Cocina offers a fusion of Spanish tapas and quality tipples, encouraging conversation, socialising and laughing – all you could wish for when looking for somewhere to dine. This is a place to linger over food. Small dishes of simple, authentic tapas will be brought to your table – nibble the likes of triple-cooked chips, dates wrapped in bacon and sourdough bruschetta with fresh tomato salsa. There are meat, vegetable and fish tapas to be had, including charcuterie and regional cheeses. Don’t skip pudding – you can tuck in to churros with chocolate dipping sauce and cinnamon sugar, or perhaps poached pears in mulled wine, served with berry compote and vanilla ice cream. Adding to the chilled ambience is the welcome list of cocktails. Make the most of the midweek special and have three tapas for £11.95 from 6pm, Tuesday to Thursday, or stop by on Sunday for a roast.
