The Street, Lidgate, nr Newmarket, CB8 9PP [Map]
Here is your traditional English country pub complete with all the traditional accoutrements, including real ale and the odd local who can manage to elbow his way in past an appreciative clientele who know a good thing when they taste it. Spain prevails, which is not surprising should you meet Maria Teresa Axon, chef/proprietor, originally from Catalonia. Specialities are pig's trotters, anchovies and swordfish. There is a short selection of wines of the month, a main list of some 60, with extensive Spanish input. House wines start at £12.00 a bottle or by the glass at a very reasonable £2.50.

Their star player is tapas, which can be had solo or in tandem with a meal. The calamares andaluza, deep-fried squid rings, served with roasted garlic mayonnaise and lemon, is great for sharing, while the chorizo frito al vino, spicy Spanish sausage flavoured with paprika, garlic and herbs, sautéed in red wine, offers a real treat. Chicken lovers order alitas de pollo, marinated chicken wings, or have skewers of chicken breast and pepper, marinated in paprika.
Valenciana is an interesting paella that combines seafood with chicken, and if you have a taste for trivia, you may be surprised to learn that 'la paella' actually refers to the utensil in which the dish is cooked.
Other than liqueurs and beer, there are wines from Spanish vineyards and sparkling cava. All of these, especially the dry rosé wines combine well with tapas. And you would be really getting into the spirit of things if you rounded off with the crema Catalana, traditional Spanish-style vanilla custard, topped with caramelised sugar.
La Tasca Spanish Tapas Restaurants and Bars today have over sixty outlets across the UK, so it is odds on there is a branch fairly close to your home.
