Had lunch here several years ago and thought it was about time we gave it another go. My partner had paella which he said was excellent and I had a selection of tapas which I could not fault. Well worth a visit and my tapas was as good as any I have had in Spain

This place has got a fab atmosphere and food is great too. There is not too many places around that can offer the same as Pinchos. The service is good, and the fact that its small makes it more homely. Its especially nice in summer when you can sit outside and have una cerveza!

We stopped by for lunch and this lovely restaurant looked ideal. The decor is warm and has a real Spanish feel to it. The lunch menu is great value with three tapas for £10. The choice is excellent with a section of vegetarian dishes as well as fish and meat. Excellent food and lovely staff.

I enjoyed my meal at Pinchos. The Sangria was amazing. The food was also very nice it was just very small portions. I have had Tapas many times before so I understand it is small dishes of things, but this was slightly too small for my liking and for the price we were paying. Really nice staff and atmosphere. I...

We visited on a Thursday night having pre-ordered 2 fillet steaks. They were cooked to perfection and the staff are so friendly and efficient that you can't fail to enjoy the experience. On previous visits we've had tapas and paella and the food has always been first class. The beer and wine are good too and everything is a reasonable... More

Quite often visit Pincho's for lunch on a Saturday - the hospitality of our hosts is always second to none, very welcoming and the food is fantastic value for money, 3 authentic Spanish tapas dishes for £9.95 at lunchtime - what's not to like!? I like to champion this local independent restaurant especially when Chelmsford has had 16 new "chain"... More

Tried to have lunch here a few times but can be busy on a Saturday lunchtime. Didn't feel the way we were turned away was the right way to treat potential clients. Food didn't really hit the button - they could review there menu in my opinion as it was a bit 'samey' and I don't think its particularly true... More

Nice setting, nice staff and average food. We went at 7pm on a Friday evening so the beginning of the weekend. Orders 2 different steaks and a selection of tapas. The tapas was ok but they didn't have either of the steaks chosen from the menu. The two who wanted steak had to chose between themselves which one was having... More
