Lively Moorish and Spanish cuisine in a long-stayer

Sam and Samantha Clark's Moorish food takes its cue from Spain via North Africa to the eastern Mediterranean, a popular formula with regulars who spill out onto pavement tables in fine weather. You can perch at the bar washing down tapas with splendid sherries or sink into a harem-style bolster cushion at one of the closely-packed tables. Friendly staff keep it all together, while inventive menus deliver colourful dishes of big flavours. Try palourde clams in an invigorating herby broth of peas and salsa verde, then gold-standard Norwegian Skrei cod matched with tangy barberries, sweet herbs and chickpeas. Finish with a citrus blast of yogurt cake with pistachios and pomegranate.
