A Spanish restaurant that will open in Cheam this week has had an "amazing reaction" from people eager to book a table.

La Villa will open on Thursday, November 16, and is based on Ewell Road.

A spokeswoman told Sutton Guardian: "We are already fully booked for Friday and Saturday.

"The reaction has been amazing."

The restaurant can house 55 guests and will open from Monday to Sunday with lunch and dinner menus available.

The spokeswoman added: "A new thing we have that nobody else has is a fish counter in the middle of the restaurant containing fish and lobsters.

"People can go up to have a look at what is there on the day and ask for things to be cooked in any way they want."

La Villa operates two other Spanish restaurants in Hampton Hill and Ewell.

Paella, chicken skewers, special organic wild boar, tapas, sangria, Spanish wine and a cocktail list are some of the things offered on the menu.

Bookings are still possible for the opening night on Thursday.
