Rather a disappointment as we love Mexican food. Nachos were fine, plenty of cheese and jalapenos, but the meal that followed was nothing special. To be fair, my husband enjoyed his steak but my 'sizzling vegetables' consisted of a large bowl of rice, which I hate, with a few veg which I had to pick out of the rice. The... More

Loved the restaurant and the atmosphere. The chicken in the fajita's didn't seem so fresh though, more like roast chicken that had been heated up. Everything else was good. The waitresses were fab.

Everything was good except we order muscless and they didn't taste as they should plus 30% of them were still closed. We also ordered fajitas wrap and some of the meat didn't taste fresh. Other than that everything was great.

Good and friendly staff with excellent service. Had slight problem with my wife's meal which was handled well with the Manager and other options offered. Good for all Mexican food at affordable prices.

A friend was supposed to join me but her train was badly delayed so I decided that I would just go in myself. Food was good, and the wine was great! VERY helpful, friendly staff who met every requirement I asked for and were only too happy to change wine for me. I will certainly be going back very soon... More

Been here twice for after work meal with 10 of us. Both times all of us were very happy with out meals. I had chicken enchiladas the first time and a spicy pizza the second and both were lovely. Great location. My only ONE gripe is that when we called to make our table booking we were treated a bit... More

Myself and five colleagues decided on Panchos to celebrate a successful end to a work project and we all agree that we're glad we did! Food was superb and not too overpriced as was the drinks! The wait for food was not long at all which was surprising as the restaurant was quite busy with it being a Friday night!... More

We've recently been for a meal and definitely need to go more often. Good food at a reasonable price. The head waiter/manger is great. The enchilada suize for me is the best thing on the menu. This place is ideal for cocktails outside in the sunshine too!
