As always, a tasty menu (love the ribs!) with a good atmosphere Always worth booking as there are a limited number of tables It's the only Tex/Mex in town but no matter, it is well worth a visit

My most recent visit last Saturday however, was to celebrate my birthday and with family members... More

Just been to The Prickly Pear for the second time and it was every bit as good as the first visit.

Popped along for dinner on a Friday night. Really lovely atmosphere, really relaxed and comfortable. The food was amazing, we had a yummy sharing platter to start, which we devoured and both had exceptionally lovely main courses. The desserts were far too tempting and had an amazing sundae. I usually eat in chain Mexican restaurants, but I will not be... More

Absolutely love this little restaurant! Been quite a few times now both with friends and family and haven't been disappointed yet! Usually have the chicken quesadilla to start and then steak fajitas which are so yummy! Pecan pies are also a personal favourite ! Lovely atmosphere and staff very attentive
