Thought we would give it a try as we thought the children would love it. We arrived at 5 as we hadn't got a reservation, I had tried calling in the afternoon but got the answer machine.Stood at the bar for 5 mins watching two members of staff behind reception sorting an order or something. Two girls appeared from the... More

Huge portions- delicious garlic prawns. Sombrero and moustaches on table were fun. Would definitely recommend a visit you won't be disappointed!

We were a group of nine including four children and were given a great table. The children loved the hats and moustaches! Unfortunately the service was very slow which rather spoiled the evening. When the food came it was good! I think the restaurant has recently changed to Pedros and hope that our experience was due to that!

Having eaten here several times in the last few years we were surprised but not at all disappointed to find that the food is no longer traditional British food but Tapas style Mexican food, there is no suggestion of this from the outside. The food was delicious and service very good. Everyone enjoyed it and we will be back soon.

Wow! Comparing it to other British tapas bars we have visited this is one of the best. Good sized portions. Plenty to eat. Really tasty dishes. Great with children. Especially the moustaches and sombreros! Will be back again soon.

The new owners have only been in for a week and I must say ever credit to them. The room was spotless and one of the nicest rooms I have ever stayed in. The room had all the facilities that we could have asked for. Breakfast was outstanding and varied form cereal to yoghurt to a full English. The staff... More
