Review of A Taste of Spain At The Wheatsheaf, Hatfield Peverel.

We at the Hub were invited to experience the Wheatsheaf’s themed night a Taste of Spain! On rainy Saturday night.

We were certainly transported to the Spanish Costa, and the rain soon forgotten. We were warmly greeted by Rob and the team and shown to our table, where a pitcher of Sangria soon arrived.

What followed was a gluttonous, glorious foray into Spanish Tapas, we started with breads and olives, then a 5 item tapas starter, including Pollo Marbella, chorizo with onion in a red wine sauce and spicy patatas bravas.

We honestly didn’t know where the man course would fit! All the dishes were delivered to each table in excellent time, enough to enjoy each dish and not rush. During the meal we were treated to the sounds of the Spanish guitar to really set the mood, and during the relaxing breaks between courses, a flamenco dancer put us all to shame with her energetic tribute to the national dance.

Our main was just the right amount of homemade seafood and chicken Paella, beautifully seasoned and not too heavy, to finish cinnamon coated Churros with chocolate dipping sauce.

All in all a lovely evening and well executed by all at the Wheatsheaf, please check their website for future events
