I have already reviewed this restaurant on Trip Advisor. Our experience was in every way outstanding. We will certainly return and tell others. The last sentence of my Trip Advisor review was 'Go now!'.

We sat outside in the warm September sun. The food was exceptional and the atmosphere was great. We even returned later for dinner!

Really good food but kept waiting at door on arrival and had dirty dishes left on the table for too long after finishing. Great cocktails. Would go again if in the area.

Perfectly cooked tapas, great flavours and reasonably priced. Because it was such a warm afternoon, we sat outside where Spoken have given it that continental feel by sectioning off some of the Steand with tables and benches under the trees (just be aware of falling confers).

We love spoken but are finding that the value for money in regards to food is not the best. We ordered bottomless focaccia but instead got stale sour dough bread, and were not told about it before hand. I got 4 prawns in my gambas pil pil which is a bit disappointing. Great cocktails as always but food not so great.

Despite a restricted menu due to current circumstances the choice of tapas was very good. Our particular favourites included the meatballs, the tortillas and the croquettes.

This venue has a real feel good factor and brilliant staff. Lower food ratings because 1. Shortened menu v online menu due to covid. 2. Limited GF options, more dishes could be GF with little additional work and remember this is a digestive requirement not a lifestyle option and 3. NO coffee

Ok for a snack with a drink but the food is not of a high enough standard for a meal. We tried nine dishes from the menu and would say the best was the fries!

This was a our first visit to Spoken and 4 of us were looking forward to the Tapas and we were not disappointed! The food was most enjoyable and the portions were generous.
There were several drinks shown on the menu but were not available. At the end of the meal we were looking forward to coffee only to be told the machine was broken and there was no coffee.
Overall a great evening.
