Simple, functional with great atmosphere! White coated gentlemen serving different type of sherry - simple space, some tapas. Nice way to get acquainted with local sherry, vermouth, moscatel. Worth visiting!

I popped in to sample a couple of wines. There were plenty of locals which is always a good sign. Staff were helpful and friendly and they write your tab on the bar with chalk. Definitely worth at least a quick visit.

great stop on a bar crawl. traditional, simple, cheap and cheerful, love the veteran bar staff - their patience is often tried but they roll with the punches, sherries, vermouths drawn from the barrel. If you like sticky floor bars and old taberna atmosphere you...More

I think it would be open on the 24th December, but you should check the website, if they have one. Well worth a visit and a few glasses of their wines and sherries. Extremely reasonable prices.
