Deep fried cheese is amazing. Does not taste like vegan cheese. Staff us delightful and friendly.

Delicious vegan food in a great pub! Will be back! Staff really friendly too :)

When we arrived for our booking, there were three staff behind the bar; one was serving a customer, and the other two were pouring (and drinking) beers. Despite the fact we were standing at the bar in full view - with another pair of customers also waiting - none of the staff acknowledged our presence for a full ten minutes. The man who eventually spoke to us was so uninterested he might as well not have been there at all. We actually weren't sure at first whether he was working, because he also completely ignored a delivery person who arrived after us with an enormous parcel, and stood in full view at the bar waiting for someone to take it from him. Had there been any other vegan place nearby, we wouldn't have stayed. When we finally got food, it was delicious; but unless the staff attitude improves we will not be back. It's a real shame because we'd been looking forward to trying The Spread Eagle for ages.

My first ever 100% vegan experience and I was not disappointed. There were 6 of ya and dishes arrived at different times but overall a good night with nice food

Delicious food and I was surprised how fish-y my fish taco tasted - the sauces and salsas were outstanding . Great to go somewhere where my vegetarian husband could eat everything on the menu. Worth the trek from Shepherd’s Bush

I had been wanting to try this place out for a while so when my friend, who is vegan, came to visit for the weekend it was the perfect opportunity. All the dishes we had were absolutely delicious, it would be hard to pick a standout! The wine & beer lists were great too. We shared around 10 plates between 4 of us (perhaps a tad greedy!), that and a total of 8 alcoholic drinks came to £35 each. Can't wait to return!

Excellent food, will return. Please note this is the Spread eagle in Homerton not in Shoreditch (we went to the wrong one by mistake) but they were super lovely and held our table for us.

Fantastic food, love this place. came for fathers day, my dad is such a foodie and although a carnivore said this was one of the best burgers ever! we came with 4 dogs and all were made to feel very welcome :)

Don't confuse this with the other "Spread Eagle" on Kingsland Rd. or any other Spread Eagles around London (this happened to us). We were almost an hour late to our booking at the "real" Spread Eagle but staff kept a table for us and told us that it happened all the time. The food was amazing - I highly recommend the Mexican Fried "Chicken" burger.

Great experience here. Amazing cocktails, brilliant & friendly service and best of all the whole place is 100% vegan! Food was delicious; the deep fried mango ice cream was so nice! Tacos a little on the small side for the price but overall was one of the best dining out occasions we’ve had in a long while... check it out!

Loved it! Service was amazing, the place was lovely and the food was incredible.

Heart broken there are no quesadillas on Wednesday and Thursday...why???? It’s the best thing on the menu and i’ve Developed an addiction...
by JonnyA on 31 May 2018
Banging vegan food. Pub decor is Nathan Barley but great staff and selection of beers. Will be back.
by Agata on 28 May 2018
The food was good but the service wasn't great this time - the waitress was a bit sulky. Too bad as I love this place and service is key. Hope that doesn't repeat.
by ClaireF on 18 May 2018
Great pub with a very relaxed cosy atmosphere. Vegan food was great and the cocktails were excellent.
by LindaS on 18 May 2018
Really great food. The service was awesome and not expensive. Really good option if you are vegan, vegetarian but even the meat-eaters in my company really enjoyed the food. You have to try the desert, it was awesome!
by RT29 on 18 May 2018
You have to try the scallops! The fish tacos are also incredible. I am a meat eater and both of these taste like the real deal.
by LauraC on 13 May 2018
The place is great! Friendly staff, amazing food and affordable prices :)
by HeatherN on 12 May 2018
Absolutely delicious food at Club Mexicana! I'll be back very soon!
by OpenTable Diner on 12 May 2018
So happy with food service etc just crap weather.
by PhoebeR on 9 May 2018
Excellent vegan food with lots of flavour. Very friendly staff and cool decor. Highly recommended!
by Clarissa on 6 May 2018
Absolute find! The vegan cheese is worth the trip! The food is amazing and the staff super friendly.
by Agata on 8 April 2018
This place is lovely! Yummy food, nice atmosphere, good service.
by JaneJ on 6 April 2018
Amazing beer and wonderful food. Great service. Will definitely go again
by AmoreR on 5 April 2018
Early evening meal 3 tacos and a portion of fried potatoes between 2 was enough. The tacos were toothsome; the potatoes yummy but rich. The deep fried icecream was too sweet but the dark chocolate was lovely. The french malbec was smooth and robust but I had lees in the bottom of my wine glass so need to learn how to pour wine to avoid this. The margherita was disappointing. Definitely good enough to visit again

This is a great interpretation of Mexican food and it's what I'd call comfort food. I wish there were more versions of meals without meat substitutes as I find them too salty.
by IanF on 1 April 2018
After following club mexicanas progress for the past couple of years I was overjoyed to learn they have a deservedly permanent home, in what turned out to be a well appointed setting. For anyone who hasn't tried them yet or is interested to discover what modern vegan food has to offer I suggest you book a table as soon as possible. Vegan food from the future.

Brought 3 meat eaters to celebrate me being a veggie for a decade and they loved it as much as I did! Lovely staff, astounding food, will be back!
by Claptonista on 31 March 2018
Great food and good vibe, but the NOISE LEVELS were indescribable! A pretty exhausting experience, but lovely food!
by skipz on 30 March 2018
Fast becoming one of my favourite pubs in London - fantastic food by Club Mexicana that will win over even ardent meat lovers. The deep-fried cheese always goes down a treat & the tofish is next level - undoubtedly one of my fave dishes of all times. Great selection of dishes, ideal for sharing. Plus a cracking selection of cocktails, beers and wine - knowing every drink is suitable for vegans is incredible. The landlady is friendly & helpful and the vibe is fun and relaxed. Gorgeous decor and that Prince shrine make it an even more fabulous place to be.
by cowsRus on 30 March 2018
Even if you're not vegan and you're not sure about vegan food, you'll love the food here. Everything is full of flavour and there are lots of deep- fried things, which makes a nice change from the salad and lentils reputation of vegan food.
by EfaF on 29 March 2018
Loved everything about this place! The staff were so friendly and helpful. It was my friends birthday and they helped a lot with bringing out a desert and singing happy birthday. Would highly recommend here
by Rebekah on 17 March 2018
Absolutely AMAZING food and a great choice of beer (and not stupidly expensive). Omnivore friend probably loved it even more than the vegans...! The actual pub is a lovely location too AND the staff were so so friendly. Ticks all the boxes - will definitely be returning, probably very soon!
by OpenTable Diner on 16 March 2018
We went for a birthday, food was all delicious, great selection of drinks as well. Two bottles of prosecco, all of the starters, 3 tacos each and a burger, £140 inc 12.5% service for 4 people, bargain!! We will be back.
by Vegetablah on 15 March 2018
Absolutely brilliant. Great decor, great music, delicious vegan food. Can't go wrong at all.
by Martin on 11 March 2018
Visited for the Club Mexicana vegan food on Thursday through Sunday - the food was delicious. Do not miss the fried cheese - melty amazing goodness. Lovely tacos! And the fried ice cream is delicious. I will come back to try a torta or a salad. Service was brilliant and the atmosphere is just perfect. Sunday night, cool Homerton pub, all the cool kids were out. Great beer too!
by Rose on 10 March 2018
Amazing vegan food, the tofish tacos actually tasted like fish. Great vibe!
by GrantC on 10 March 2018
great atmosphere, friendly staff, great 80s (the cool stuff) music playing. And the food was top class Vegan food tasty and well prepared.
by LucyA on 9 March 2018
We had such a lovely evening dining here. We ate until we were fit to burst and loved every single tasty dish. Lovely cocktails to accompany the food and the ambience and service we're both GREAT! Will definitely be back and recommending it to others xx
by DanD on 9 March 2018
Absolutely love this place, always busy and with a great buzz, food is out of this world, the Tofish Tacos are insane! All the staf is super lovely and well priced. Been here loads and will continue to do so.
by NikeJ on 3 March 2018
This place was absolutely packed, and unfortunately when we turned up we had to wait 30 mins to be seated despite booking a table. However the staff were extremely apologetic and made sure to make up for that fact, so all I can say is I was extremely pleased with the service despite that hiccup. The food came quickly and was tasty, as a non vegan I was thoroughly impressed. Would definitely return
by Chelsey on 3 March 2018
I booked this for a late lunch on a Saturday ( I would recommend to book ahead of time) the service was a bit slow and the restaurant was busy but the food came out quickly! The food was so good and tasty, we will definitely be back!
by Agata on 25 February 2018
Really really good food. The tacos were amazing as were the 'scallops.' I also had a lovely orange wine. Staff was super friendly too. Very excited that this place is around the corner from me!
by elzFoodie on 25 February 2018
This was a great find and so pleased I tried it! As a newbie vegan the food blew me away, and all my non-vegan friends chowed down the food in approval. We went on a Sunday late afternoon and it was buzzing with a really friendly crowd. Love the concept of 100% vegan pub, and would highly recommend anyone vegan/non-vegan to try.
by Katie on 25 February 2018
Excellent vegan food in lovely surroundings. Warm and friendly service. Good value for money. Will definitely be back.
by Dals on 25 February 2018
Wonderful Atmosphere, Food was incredible, Amazing vegan options. Lovely Staff, Great Service. Could easily hang out here all day long! Will be back for more ASAP! ;)
by CeePer on 24 February 2018
Really great food and drinks, and the staff were excellent. The place was packed, so book ahead.
by Chris on 24 February 2018
Insanely good vegan Mexican food. Just go - you won't regret it!
by LaCr on 24 February 2018
Loved this place, loved the menu, setting & service. Dessert section could be better Personally do not like the recipe of the tortillas, which unfortunately come with a lot of the dishes... But otherwise so tasty, creative, diverse and modern for vegan food. Want to revisit!
by Emma on 23 February 2018
Went on a Saturday night. Great buzz, service was friendly and helpful but the place was very busy so we had to ask for service a couple of times. Food is amazing and good value. It was very difficult to have a conversation as it is quite loud in there. Really enjoyed it though and would go again, perhaps at a quieter time of the week.
