Capote y Toros Ham & Sherry Bar 

This little offspring of Cambio de Tercio, just along the road, is a lively little tapas bar specialising in sherry and Jamón but also serving other delicious tapas.


From the small menu you can try:


The wonderful 5J Cinco Jotas Jabugo Jamón Iberico de Bellota or the chorizos and other charcuterie.


The patatas bravas here are served in all of their 4 restaurants and tapas bars. Small new potatoes are hollowed out and filled with smooth tomato bravas sauce, topped with a luscious dollop of spiky alioli.

Croquetas de Jamón (ham and béchamel croquettes)

Tartar atún (tuna tartar, avocado & grapefruit) 

Bacalao Asado con Sobrassada (cod roasted with Mallorca’s famous, paté like, sobrassada chorizo & mange touts)

The carrilleras de cerdo Iberico (Iberico pork cheeks stew in Oloroso sherry & potato cream) are slowly cooked so the leaner muscles hold all the flavour, just as they are on the point of collapsing. 

Tuétano Asado con Jugo de Ternera


Stunning roasted bone marrow with veal jus, which you can scoop with your spoon and place on the salsa brava toast

As always there is an excellent Spanish wine list, but it is the sherry list that makes its mark here, containing over 120 varieties with which to choose from.


You can try a “sherry flight” of fino, manzanilla, amontillado, oloroso and moscatel to get a great introduction to this famous old wine, similar to the one shown below.

Also available are palo cortados, olorosos dulces and the very sticky, prune-like, Pedro ximenez (which is also great over vanilla ice cream).


Most evenings there is a live guitarist playing old flamenco music, which transports you to the back street tabolas of Jeréz de la Frontera, Cádiz or Sevilla, which adds to the buzzing atmosphere.


Service is brisk, friendly and professional and they have two sittings in the evening.


You can only book the early evening sitting, later on you have to turn up and maybe wait at the bar a while.
