Where a huge pan of bubbling paella serves as a (very tasty) centrepiece, this tapas bar is Spanish hospitality in all its glory. Welcome to Castro's; here, no party is big enough!

And thanks to their eclectic, playful decor, it's time to brush off the festival gear for a fiesta like no other. Like a giant treehouse, Castro's is adorned with humongous wooden tables, free-spirited log stools and enough colourful lanterns to be seen from space. Leave the mundane every day for this enchanted forest!

Now, we've mentioned their paella, but it only gets better when you have the choice of seafood, vegetarian or chicken & chorizo! Customise it to your liking and have yourself a warming bowl of Spanish goodness. However, if you fancy a sharing dining style, simply look to their exciting tapas menu.

Nothing tastes better than sharing delicious food with loved ones. Dig into anything from Chorizo to crispy fried chicken, dry aged sirloin and serrano ham. For your five-a-day, the order in some roasted leeks or patatas bravas in a traditional Spanish sauce. Partake in the full culinary experience with a Spanish chupitos; the perfect boozy finish to any meal! Shot-sized, sweet and naughty, life's a party at this joint!
