Frequently Asked Questions
Tapa (or Tapas for plural) means small plate in Spanish. The actual concept of Tapa varies greatly depending on where you are and can be anything from a little taster with a drink or a mix and match style meal to share with friends. At The Fish Bar you can treat our Tapas exactly how you want! Whether you fancy a little bite with a bottle of wine, a table full of mixed Tapas to share with friends, making a meal out of 2 or 3 dishes or ordering a dish or two at a time and see how it goes!
As a guideline we find about 2-3 dishes per person works well. But this obviously depends on your own appetite, how much you've eaten through the rest of the day and which dishes you order - some are much more filling than others! Why not do rolling tapas and just order a couple of dishes at a time until you're full!
Yes, we are situated in a private car park with free parking for guests for up to 3 hours.
We do have both wheelchair access and an accessible toilet but please contact us directly by calling 01637 874152 or emailing [email protected] to make your reservation and we can make sure that we book you onto a suitable table
Dogs are very welcome!
Children are very welcome - we have a couple of specific kids tapas dishes but we find that most children enjoy the tapas experience and sharing dishes from our main menu with their parents
Absolutely! Let us know the occasion and we can decorate your table and make arrangements for cakes, bubbly or whatever you might like!
We don't have a specific gluten free menu but many of our dishes are naturally gluten free and, if you speak to our staff, we can tailor a lot of dishes to your requirements as our food is cooked fresh to order.
We do indeed! Whilst we specialise in fish, we know that not everyone likes it and make sure that all other tastes are catered for.
We absolutely do! You'll find some great vegetarian dishes on our menu and these can all be adapted for vegans too.
We will hold your booking for you for 15 minutes after the time you are due to arrive. If you're going to be longer than this you can modify your booking by going back to the bookings portal or you can call us to re-schedule if possible
Just follow the link in your confirmation email
We have a limited number of highchairs available - if you need one please make sure that you let us know by selecting the option on the bookings page
We absolutely do and we have a dedicated area that can seat up to 38 people. It's perfect for celebrations, meetings or business functions with options to create a set menu or buffet if you like. Contact us directly on 01637 874152 or at [email protected] to discuss your requirements

Great food , good waitress ,but Tapas should come out, as and what is cooked first , which we asked for , but we then sat and waited & waited then it all came at once , the next table had no food for ages , so the point I am making is we could all had a little something to eat instead of all just sitting their waiting for food. that the whole point of tapas,

Wonderful restaurant. We had a fab night here, the service was friendly and efficient and the food was beautiful. There is so much to choose from and we had a mix of specials and main menu dishes, all Tapas that I would have again in a heartbeat! We’ve booked to come again in a few weeks it’s that good and I can’t wait!

Lovely evening meal celebrating our engagement. All the food was lovely and the service was exceptional. Unfortunately we were on holiday from Northumberland so it won't be a local for us!! Looking forward to eventually being back some time soon but, would highly recommend to anyone visiting the area!

good idea the button on the table to order food, clear table etc. enjoyed our meal but mussels was overdone I would say, and we had to wait a good while for our food which we understood it was going to come out rolling but came all at once.

Service was just lovely. Food quality was okay, but could have been better. Felt a little overpriced for the food quality - but otherwise a very pleasant place to eat.
