Pancho Tapas Bar, Warwick

View of the bar
A newcomer to Warwick, Pancho opened as a tapas bar in April 2011. It's a 30 seater inside, soon to be enlarged, tapas bar just off Smith Street in central Warwick. Excellent quality, freshly cooked food are their hallmark.

PANCHO TAPAS BAR, WARWICK
The current site of Pancho has been a bar / restaurant for many years with the last occupants, the Cellar, vacating the site two years before Pancho opened up.

Interior view 1 The interior is cellar style which gives it great atmosphere lunch time or in the evenings. Outside is a very attractive walled patio area which is a sun trap. Pancho's has to be one of the best ways to have lunch, quick or leisurely, on a sunny day. The service is more than quick enough for a meal and a beer or wine in your lunch break.

The tapas ethos is changing around the world, especially in Spain. For many years, tapas was always associated with eating small portions of exclusively Spanish type food. But nowadays, tapas is more an eating style rather than a type of food. Pancho Tapas Bar has embraced this changed concept to the full.

Interior view 4 All your favourite Spanish dishes are on the Pancho menu but there is also an increasing emphasis on other cuisines. These are all served in the traditional tapas small portions but now you can experiment with few non-Spanish foods as well.
How's about a tapas portion of Chicken Thai or Swedish Style Potato Salad? Sounds good to us!

THE FOOD

At the moment there is a choice of 26 tapas dishes ranging from traditional Spanish fare such as Chorizo to more exotic tapas from around the world. The portions are generous and if you take up the 3 for 10 you will have more than enough for a meal. It all comes with complimentary warm bread which is delicious.

Outside patio view


Outside view 2 We tested lots of the tapas dishes and none disappointed although we were particularly impressed with the Greek Chicken, the Carne con Papas Canarias and the Portobello Belle. The quality of the food and its preparation make Pancho our favourite tapas bar in Warwick. Below are a few pictures of some of the tapas available.

SERVICE
All tapas are served to your table as are your drinks. Service was prompt and courteous without being over-bearing.

DRINKS
Pancho is now fully licensed and they have a good range of wines and beers at reasonable prices. Our only criticism was that the range of soft drinks was rather limited. For instance they didn't have any of the popular J2O drinks.

SUMMARY
A good value tapas bar serving top quality food in pleasant surroundings. The patio area was especially pleasant on warm day. We were more than impressed by the choices on the menu with Spanish favourites and our cuisines being well represented. A good choice for an evening meal or lunch. Well positioned for parking in the Priory Road car park just off Smith Street. The Pancho Tapas bar is a 45 second walk from the car park.
