From the glinting wine glasses to the impossibly well-polished floor, this place is a shining example of Spain at its best. It’s also thoroughly delicious, as you’ll find out when you sample the ‘Tabla de Entremeses’. That’s Serrano ham, Manchego cheese, Salamanca chorizo and salami, with marinated olives, bread and olive oil. Sangria is the way to go on the drinks front, naturally. Make sure to book in advance, though, as tables fill up quickly! Find out more

“Wonderful deli filled with international produce and incredible spices which are great for cooking. The store is also conveniently located next the Grounds so it helps pass the time as you’re waiting for a table to eat. However, Salt Meats cheese itself also has food available which is so incredibly fragrant – from pizzas to cured meats to nutella treats.” – kningja

Food is amazing, authentic Italian. Must try the peppercorn meatballs and fried calamari! Highly recommended” – rina.v
