Food Review: the Tapas menu at Pablo’s Bistro is suitable for all tastes



EVERY TIME my wife Feona and I visit the Lake District we always take the long hike up to Penrith to our favorite Spanish tapas restaurant.

But I think we found one closer to home which like our favorite serves a delicious taste of Spain without having to wait until we’re gone on vacation.

Just returned from a short trip to Norfolk, found to my delight that it was my turn to write the food review and I had nothing planned.

So Fee and I ventured into town to one of the local restaurants we hadn’t tried before, Pablo’s Bistro in Bradford on Avon’s Lamb Yard.

We have found this independent, family-run Spanish tapas restaurant serving quality authentic Spanish dishes as well as fine Spanish wines and beers.

Judging by the menu, owners Trish and Alun Pugsley are passionate about Spain and its cuisine, with an abundance of meat and fish dishes on the menu, as well as vegetarian and vegan options, and also for the following people. a special diet.

With so many options available, it took us a while to choose, but eventually Fee and I decided to select four dishes each.

Fresh went for the Garlic Mushrooms Champinones Al Ajo (£ 5.95), King Prawns (£ 7.50), Tapas Chorizo ​​Burgers (£ 7.95) and Lamb Chops Grilled Chuletas De Cordero (£ 8.50), while I selected the Pork Skewers (£ 7.95), Albandigas Meatballs (£ 5.95), Spicy Honey & Lime Chicken Skewers (8 £) and Berenjenas Con Miel crispy eggplant fritters (£ 5.50).

While waiting for their arrival, we nibbled on bread and oil (£ 3.95).

Fee, who doesn’t drink, decided to try Torres Natureo Garnacha Syrah alcohol-free red wine (£ 5 a glass), while I opted for a rather mellow Picada P15 Malbec red wine from Argentina’s Patagonia region. (£ 8.25).

Outstanding tapas dishes among those we chose were the garlic mushrooms cooked in a creamy white wine sauce on bread, which Fee described as the best she has ever tasted, and the mini burgers from grilled chorizo, served with sweet potato sliders topped with guacamole, which were absolutely delicious.

I especially enjoyed the Albandigas meatballs in tomato sauce, and the crispy eggplant fritters were divine, with a honey filling making them mouth watering.

We followed up with desserts, Fee opting for the Spanish Donuts Churros with Chocolate Sauce and Strawberries (£ 5.95), while I savored the Strawberry Meringue Eton Mess (£ 5.95).

The atmosphere at Pablo’s Bistro is lively, the staff were attentive and knowledgeable, and all tapas dishes were made to order very quickly.

There is enough choice on the menu to tantalize your taste buds and a sufficiently wide selection of fine wines, Spanish beers, cocktails and sangria guaranteed to make any party go with a swing.

Our total bill was £ 90.65 and I thought it was pretty good value for money. I feel like we will go back again and again.
