Used to come here all the time and loved it so I ignored some of the bad reviews and decided to go back. Unfortunately I should've listened to them. We had booked a table a week in advance but when we arrived they said it wasn't ready and we had to wait downstairs for 10 minutes with no offer of... More

The PP has a limited menu with a small number of specials on offer - to be honest a limited menu is always better as too much choice is never a good thing! We ordered the 2 sharing platters to start and an extra bowl of chicken wings. The platters were a plate of nachos with beef chilli, guac and... More

Tucked away in a nice corner of Bishop's Stortford this is definitely a little gem in the town. Very small but good atmosphere. Started with the sharing nachos which were a good size and cajun chicken for main which was cooked to perfection! Definitely will be going back!

We've been here a few times now and its been excellent every time! Best restaurant in Bishops Stortford :) Excellent food; warm, inviting atmosphere; nothing loud, lit up & obnoxious if you know what I mean. A true gem. We make this a regular date night spot!

This restaurant was a last minute choice as it was Wednesday night early and not a lot of places were available. But what a great choice! The place is smallish, intimate and very friendly (staff explaining the meals to those of us who had never eaten Mexican before), and the food was excellent. The choice of wine was good too,... More

A last minute decision to eat out brought us to their door.. Despite being busy, the service was exceptional, attentive but not overbearing. The lighting was perfect.. creating a warm ambiance. Every course was tasty and well presented and although there's only a couple of veggie mains the one my wife chose was tasty. For me I'd like a lot... More

We visited the Prickly Pear for the first time on Friday evening and I'm already planning to return next week with another group of friends. We were shown to our table in the main restaurant area just after 8pm. There wasn’t an empty table in sight so I'd recommend booking in advance to avoid disappointment. The menu includes all of...

Me and my girlfriend have been meaning to go to this place for a while, when we finally got round to it, IT WAS WELL WORTH THE WAIT, the restaurant is very well presented with great decor and the smells that greet you at the entrance just pull you in... The food was excellent, the pulled pork fajita was Amazing!... More
