I visited The Old Mexican with my partner on a Friday night. The food was delicious (I would recommend the chimichanga!) however our food took an unbearably long time to arrive. We got ourselves through a few beers whilst waiting which was fine for us...More

I checked the website as we've wanted to try this restaurant for a while but it has limited opening hours. It said you don't need to book Thursdays so I didn't call. We turned up, and it was shut. Nothing on website. Nothing on door....More

Went here for dinner on Friday with work colleagues. Food was good quality, however some things from the menu were not available, which wasn't great considering it was a Friday night. Service was laboured, and overall not great.

The title says a lot! We were first in so it was a bit cold but soon warmed up and got livelier as evening went on. Food was good, hot and warming without being too spicy! They weren't huge portions but it was adequate- no...More

Starters were ok. Ordered main course of enchiladas, really disappointing, no cheese on top or inside. Didn't taste or look like enchiladas. Food very bland. My friend asked for mayonnaise to accompany her Chips but they had none. My other friend asked for her fajitas...More

Unusually disappointed, ordered Prosecco to be told that they had run out. Ordered Enchiladas and they had been in oven/grill too long, ordered coffee to be told the coffee machine had broken. Not offered sweet, staff although friendly and pleasant, seemed more interested in their...More
