To celebrate La Tomatina, Squires restaurant has a special Spanish Menu from 31st August – 6th September.
La Tomatina is a food fight festival held on the last Wednesday of August each year in the town of Bunol near to Valencia in Spain. Thousands upon thousands of people make their way from all corners of the world to fight in this ‘World’s Biggest Food Fight’ where more than one hundred metric tons of over-ripe tomatoes are thrown in the streets.
Prior to 2013 anywhere from 40,000 to 50,000 (reported to be 50,000 in 2012) people crammed into this huge tomato fight, greatly expanding Bunol’s normal 9,000 person population. Since 2013 official ticketing has been in place limiting the number of participants to just 20,000 lucky people!
Now we can assure you, there will be no tomato throwing in Squires! But our authentic Spanish dishes will take you back to that amazing holiday in Spain, where you enjoyed a delicious tapas and a fabulous glass of Rioja….
