Cuisine: Bar Food, Tacos

Located on the main shopping strip, as its name suggests it is a rather small bar but it certainly has a lot of character.

Great wine by the glass, a decent selection of bottled beer and home-cooked, simple but great food.

A warm, intimate atmosphere with lovely staff and a sensational wine garden out the back.

Keep it Small.

For a rookie at First Table, it was great. Service was excellent (staff were lovely) and the food was delicious as it always is at Small Bar anyway. Easy after-work catch up for everyone.

Very disappointed with our experience at Small Bar Crows Nest. We arrived on time and having booked a table there was none reserved for us. We were a party of 4 there to eat and we were put on a high bar table that had three bar stools. The waiter organised another stool but the table was tiny. We were advised we would be moved when another table became available and that was the last we saw of the waiter all night. We ordered a round of drinks and paid. The larger table for 4 became available next to us but some other people swooped on it before we could throw our bags on it to claim it. I would've thought the waiter may be keeping an eye on that and move us. So after realising this was it, we ordered food. I presented my First Table voucher and the 50% was deducted from our food. The food all came together and we had to hold platters while dishing up on our plates and the server waited for the platter as there was clearly nowhere to put it on the table. We then ordered a couple more dishes but our First Table voucher was not honoured. I get that you can only use it once but we hadn't left the restaurant, it was only about 30 minutes since our original order but no, we were not given the First Table discount. The waitress said something about a Tab but that was never offered to us when we ordered originally. All in all a very disappointing experience. So when ordering your food if you think you may go back for more, open a Tab and pay for it all at the end with the First Table discount. Food is good though.

I've been to Small Bar many times, and love coming back. Lovely spot with great atmosphere, nice food and good vibes. We were served by someone who was new on the job, so still learning but did a great job. Great value!

Small bar has such a lovely warm, cozy atmosphere. Perfect for a cold winter night. The food exceeded our expectations. We over ordered because the sliders were larger than expected! The wine selection is great. Loved our experience here!

The atmosphere was great but a bit loud. Staff were helpful and friendly and made sure the experience was enjoyable. The food was tasty and interesting but could have been more flavorful. Large selection of drinks and different food.

Never seems to disappoint. Always my go to for a good catch up over tapas style food and a good glass of wine. The atmosphere is always great, best to sit in the courtyard if there is availability as it is so pretty out there. Staff are always so friendly and happy to help in anyway!

Beautiful setting with a pretty, covered courtyard. Fun share food with a mix of familiar favourites, like soft tacos and sliders, and finger food with a twist like halloumi with honey and rosemary or the vegan cauliflower wings.

Can't wait to come back!

Enjoyed the venue and also the food hadn't realised it was more of a tapas menu so only small plates, hence the name "Small Bar" so we just ordered more,! meat balls and a charcuterie board to share really excellent, nice wine and brilliant service.

I can't say anything negative about this place. I absolutely love it. Everything from when you walk in the door to when you leave. Beautiful wooden tables and chairs in the entrance and elegant garden chairs and tables in the back under the twinkling fairy lights.

The service is wonderful with really efficient waiters and bartenders. The food is delicious and there is a decent selection of beverage.

Really highly recommended

Food was delicious; not a bad choice out of the whole tapas style menu. Barman went out of his way to organise us a courtyard table on a busy night. Will definately return.

A great venue and atmosphere. The food was delicious as always. Unfortunately we did ask for the tapas we to come out staggered but it all hit the small table at the same time. Will be back!

Food was great, wine was great and service was great. Minimal amount of cocktails but what they had was good. Mostly focused on wines and beer but the options were great. Recommend the vegetarian share plate - even if you're not vegetarian!

Great food and service, first time here and the place was packed. As it's obviously a small place it made for a very noisy venue and hard to talk.

Really impressed with our experience at the Small Bar. Great ambience on entry, no shortage of people there at 6.00pm. Table booked through First Table, ready and waiting. Delicious food and due to the healthy discount, we were able to sample many of the small dishes from the menu. Highly recommend

Was a great experience. Was the first time using First Table and was no hassle at all - it was seamlessly applied and our table was all booked for us when we arrived. We had Calamari, Haloumi sliders, guacamole, tacos and arancini balls – all delicious and a complete bargain. Meant we could get ourselves some upgraded wine choices
