One of our favourite meals, as a family, is a Rustic Dinner – or essentially a Tapas Board. I love the variety that it offers and it is a fantastic choice as a Summer meal – as it is lighter than a traditional dinner and feels a bit holiday-like.

We have some highly-rated Tapas restaurants and bars in Epsom and surrounds, so if you are looking for some Summer dining ideas, then have a look at these local restaurants.

El Patio Bar in Epsom Square

I have been to El Patio a few times, but have only recently had their tapas. Dee and I popped in one evening, recently, to try their delicious tapas menu. El Patio prizes itself on Spanish eating – focussing on paella, tapas and set meals. They also have a 2 for 1 special on Thursdays for cocktails, paella and skewers. You can also catch some live Jazz performances every last Wednesday of the month.

Caballo Lounge on Epsom High Street

We love Caballo Lounge – the atmosphere, the decor (this is my favourite part) and the food. Great for a family meal out or for drinks and tapas with friends. Caballo Lounge has a Tapas Tuesday special – any three tapas and a glass of wine for £10.50, from 5.00pm.

La Familia in Ewell Village

I have only been to La Familia for a set meal over Christmas, but their food was delicious and their tapas menu looked great too. A great choice for an adults-only meal.

El Rincon on Epsom Downs

I haven’t been to El Rincon, but their tapas sound wonderful; and now that we are in Epsom, I definitely think that we will be visiting them. José Antonio, Carlos and Conchita have been providing Epsom with traditional Spanish cuisine since 1992.

La Villa in Cheam Village

La Villa is a popular Spanish restaurant choice in Cheam Village – focussing on seafood, tapas, and Spanish delicacies. The menu has a lot of choice for everyone with meat, fish and veggie options. They have also just released their new tapas menu. Definitely one to try out!

Although not strictly tapas, we have also had apéritifs and mediterranean sharing platters at Hanedan in Ewell Village, Bills, Ask Italian and Sicily in Epsom. Even if you aren’t going to Europe this Summer, you can find some traditional European summer meals, in and around our area.
