As part of a Christmas present, I purchased a voucher through Red Balloon that provided me with the opportunity to cook tapas for two at the Exchange Hotel. Once I had the voucher, I called the Exchange Hotel to make a booking for two. My better half and I booked ours in at 3:00pm on a Sunday afternoon, the perfect time to have an early dinner.

We started off with a jug of sangria, but as part of the package there was a number of different cocktails we could have chosen from, sangria just seemed to be our favourite and goes well with tapas. To start off our meal we were served uncooked octopus and kangaroo, along with a BBQ hot rock for us to cook the meat on. We were also provided with a number of different relishes and chutneys to use on the meats. In addition to all this, we received corn on the cob, which we cooked on the hot rock as well.

After we had cooked and ate the above dishes, the second dishes were then served; they consisted of chicken strips, chilli prawns and halloumi. The great thing about having the BBQ hot rock was that you can cook your dishes the way you like, to your personal perfection.

While not part of the package, we then ordered dessert. I like to keep things simple and had a café latte, while my partner had the dessert of the day which consisted of hazelnut ice cream, with a caramel slice and a pear strudel spring roll. There wasn't a crumb left on the plate.

The service that we received was great; the waitress who served us was friendly and helpful, and we didn't wait long to receive our dishes at all. Sitting on the balcony in the sun on a Sunday afternoon was a nice way to spend the day - an afternoon that I would only be too happy to repeat.

If you get the chance, I would highly recommended paying the Exchange Hotel a visit if you want to try something a little different.
