Midlands-based restaurateurs The Authentic Tapas Group are opening a fourth site in Edgbaston, Birmingham in June.

El Barracho de Oro, meaning 'the golden drunk', marks a major investment for the family run group, which also owns Casa Ruiz in Bridgnorth, Don Diego in Birmingham and Casa Naranjo in Shrewsbury.

On the menu will be a selection of ‘hearty Spanish staples’ and sharing dishes including Arroz Caldosa de Bogovante (a dish similar to paella made with lobster and other seafood); and Lubina a Sal (whole seabass packed in sea salt).

The site will feature a seven metre long bar for guests to enjoy pre-dinner drinks or relax with tapas.

Emma Yufera-Ruiz, who co-owns The Authentic Tapas Group with her husband Alfonso, said: “It will be hard to find a more authentic Spanish experience than this.

“El Borracho de Oro is the name of the first bar that Fonz worked in in Granada – he loved his time there and it was very special for him. The name translates as 'the Golden Drunk' and refers to the person who drinks all the good wines.”

The couple also run Spanish food supply company the Authentic Tapas Company.

El Barracho de Oro will launch in The Village, Edgbaston, on 8 June.
