“Excellent venue for groups but food average.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

I went as part of a stag night group on a weekend, and the venue is ideal and well organised to cope with such groups. It was packed. The atmosphere was really good. Because of the group size we had to select from a more retsricted menu. This was no problem as there was enough to choose from. Food arrived relatively quickly for a group of our size and the service was very good and friendly. The food was okay, good size protions but nothing special. The wine was fine for the price. We had a good night and I would go back in a large group but it is not some where I should go back for the food or as a couple.

“Good party atmosphere only average mexican food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

I use to come here a fair bit but not so much anymore as food is mediocre and its so busy the staff are rushing around not really providing a great service. We were seated and waited a while before we were given menus. Food came out relatively fast, the food was average nothing spectacular. The manager always looks fed up and can't be bothered and they took forever to come round with the card machine so we ended up paying on the way out. If the service was better we probably wouldn't have minded paying the service charge but as the service was average we just left a small tip. Overall good party atmosphere but not somewhere you would go for just the food.

“Always a great night...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012 via mobile

Always had great nights here with various teams I've taken / gone with from Royal Mail (who used to have their management training centre nearby)... Food & service always good, but it's the atmosphere I really love. My wife loves Mexican food, so also taken her & despite concerns that not being in a group it might not be so good, we still had a great time, in a great atmosphere & she loved it too...

“Good meeting place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

Met up with friends, okay to good food but nothing above the ordinary. On the other hand helpful staff and nice atmosphere - have been a few times and would certainly go back. Good value.

“Saucy Mexican”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Loved the great cocktails, decor and food! Great ambience and terrific service, really friendly and helpful. They have cubicle type seating upstairs which gives you more privacy if you like that. Would definitely go back - their vegetable fajitas are awesome :)
