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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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
