Can't really add much to the other reviews on here - great food, lovely staff, a great evening out. There are quite a few vegetarian options. We have been coming to PDC for many years and it's a shame we've only just discovered this place....More

The fajitas were sensational with huge amounts of sour cream, salsa and home made guacamole which was the best I’ve tasted. Generous amount of chicken. Such a lovely place

Our fajitas are always a firm favourite and definitely not to be missed, when topped with Pico de Gallo, Guacamole and Sour Cream they truly are to die for ! Lovely to read your review and hopefully you will visit us again.
