If you like authentic Spanish tapas or a modern approach to tapas style dining and drinking then you are in for a treat soon.
Southbourne will get two new ventures opening soon in the shape of Casa Carlos moving from Tuckton onto the Grove. It will be at the top end of the Grove sort of opposite Tomlins fish and chip shop.
The other place opening is by James Fowler of the Larder House. He will be opening Terroir Tapas at the other end of the Grove opposite the petrol station.
This will kickstart the nightlife a bit further, and make a dent into my wallet no doubt.
