You might think of tapas, tequila and cocktails as a pretty formidable combination, and you’d be absolutely right to do so. Guests enjoy all three in equally delicious measure at El Patron, a fresh new Mexican restaurant and cocktail bar in the heart of Putney.

This is a really social affair made for gathering a group of mates together in delving deep into a tequila-heavy cocktail menu. The Scorpion and Escobar’s Secret are as quirky as their names might suggest, and slot in nicely with a punchy card worth checking out. Look out for their sharing cocktails if you’re prone to a party; they’re served in a piñata and ready for some stick!

There’s plenty for the foodie fan too. Tantalising tacos and bountiful burritos are lovingly created and cheerfully served, and there’s a vibrant entertainment and live music programme on offer here too.

Very disappointing. Staff incredibly rude. Lovely evening out ruined by staff throwing us out of the venue for "dancing too close to the DJ"! Very rude barman. Food very average. Avoid at all costs.

Hi Annabel! Thank you for your comments! Everyone gets a little bit to carried away sometimes after a few tequilas! On Saturday night we politely asked you and your two female friends to move away from our band to ensure you didn't knock into them, at this point we had no intention of asking you to leave and wanted to ensure everyone was having a good time. However at this point you became verbally abusive towards our very polite door supervisor who was trying to explain this to you and for that reason you were asked to step outside so we could explain this in a calmer environment. Unfortunately you then became even more verbally aggressive to both a member of the bar team and the security team and for that reason the decision was made to refuse you re-entry to the venue. We never want to spoil the party for anyone, however we cannot tolerate members of our team been verbally abused.

Disappointing overall. Cocktails were truly awful. So sour! Worst margaritas we've ever had no wonder they were unlimited. Food was really good though. Sadly -what was sold to us as a 'mariachi band' was actually a woman singing covers. Wouldn't do again.

Came last night for dinner and ended up staying the whole night! Great party atmosphere, DJ was unreal and all the staff were great and having loads of fun! Fun place to be

Ammmmmaaazzzzing cocktails - the Tommy's Margarita was to die for! The best burritos I've ever had too (and I've had a lot!!). Gorgeous decor, cool staff and an awesome vibe. My new Friday night haunt!

Absolutely dreadful service, no attention to detail. Understaffed. Average food with bad timing, as all meals arrived one at a time, with a big party, by the time one end of the table had eaten, the rest of the food was arriving, none of the staff knew who was having what, and the gin and tonics tasted like gin and soda from over watered down mixers. If you sit by the front door, you get choked with cigarette fumes, which is not nice when trying to enjoy your weak drinks while watching your friends finish their meal. Nice authentic decor and skull mugs though.

Great Place! Loving their tapas styled food and the fact that it doesnt close as early as all the other pubs around. A great addition to the SW area!
