About Us

Tabanco by Ambiente is inspired by Southern Spain’s tabanco bars. The rustic charm of these tabanco bars, where customers come and go, chat and enjoy a glass of sherry with a tapas, is what we have recreated in our vibrant restaurant on Walmgate.

It’s the perfect place to pop in for a solo visit to grab a cold beer or sherry with a nibble, or to visit with family and friends whilst dwelling for longer over tapas and a bottle of wine.

The dishes on our menu have been inspired by southern Spain's tabanco bars and really epitomise the kind of tapa you'd find in these rustic bars (and we should know having done our fare share of research trips over the years!). Our wine list, all Spanish-inspired as well, features all your Spanish favourites, including wine, sherry, beer, sangria, cocktails and more!

Enjoy some tapas and sherry in one of our indoor dining areas, or for those sunny days, our courtyard is the perfect place to embrace the sun over some alfresco tapas

Courtyard Opening Hours:

Our beautiful sun-soaked courtyard is the perfect place to stop and enjoy a nibble with a drink or a more leisurely meal.
