Venue

As the name suggests, tapas and wine bar, right next door to an equally well-regarded restaurant, The Lime Tree on Bollington’s High Street.

Menu

Changes daily. Tapas fusion, really...small plates with global influences. We tried roasted camembert with apple and rosemary purée, flash-fried tiger prawns in tomato and garlic chili jam with salt and vinegar frites, panko fried smoked mackerel with cream cheese and roasted red pepper ketchup, piri piri crusted pork tenderloin with refried beans and chorizo, and shawarma spiced roast chicken spring roll with hummus and mojo verde. Best of all, though was a simple baked hen’s egg with creamed wild mushroom, spinach, parmesan and a hint of truffle.

A ‘mini pudding’ of toffee apple upside down cake with maple and walnut ice cream (£4) was delicious but was indeed ‘mini’.

Decor and ambience

Simple wood furnishings, with the odd quirky artwork. Pleasant neighbourhood restaurant.

Service

Efficient, friendly.

Cost

Three small plates for £20 each was good value and filling . The home-baked breads with oil and balsamic dip are worth the £3.

Tapa, 22 High St, Bollington, SK10 5PH 01625 575 058
