Really disappointed. Ordered 3 tapas for £8. The mushroom tortilla was more like a yorkshire pudding than a firm solid Spanish omelette, well over done. The potato with manchego cheese was pitiful, miniscule portion and looked and tasted like chopped up stale roast potato with...More

Had lunch here on Friday. We both ordered the turkey, gammon, cranberry & stuffing pie which was delicious washed down with a pint a dark side stout. Staff are friendly and there's a great atmosphere every time we visit.

We went there just after it opened. Nice surroundings and very pleasant staff but a lot of the menu was unavailable and our eventual choices were either incomplete (missing vegetables, for instance), over salted or just bland. Maybe they've improved and I wouldn't be opposed...More

The Staff are really great and friendly, the food was good but took absolutely ages to arrive and we had only ordered a few tapas. Great atmosphere though and the prices were fair. Would I go again? Yes.

Pinto Lounge is an informal, neighbourhood food led cafe lounge that's open 9am till 11pm everyday. Where families, friends, and locals can enjoy coffee, cocktails and loads in between! A nice big breakfast, something light to eat at lunch time and some tasty tapas in the evening. All in the relaxed comfortable environment of a lounge. We have a heated courtyard and well behaved children and dogs are welcome too!
