Fabulous set Christmas menu. Only small complaint was that it took a while to get the bill once finished, but it was clear to see they were really busy, and not a major problem. Delicious!

Have been to Club Mexicans before, but this new venue more than lived up to the hype. Excellent cocktails (including a vegan milk-based one) and great food. Would highly recommend the cheese-style sticks and the cauliflower. Thanks for a great meal!!

Had a great meal here on Saturday night. Nothing fancy, just excellent vegan Mexican dishes (I am a confirmed omnivore): fresh and delicious nachos to share, buffalo "chicken wings" and an assortment of tacos, all excellent. Friendly service. There was even a mini old-school rave in the back bit. They ramped the sound system up after 11 so if you are after a quiet night you might want to leave then.

Service was very friendly and efficient.

I would have like a few more hand pumped ales perhaps but the beer selection was good and one of our party said their margaritas were pretty good.

I would definitely go back, Homerton obviously clearly now on the foodie map.

2,000 characters is not enough space to express just how good The Spread Eagle and Club Mexicana are. Every neighbourhood should have this!

The menu was very disappointing. It felt very ‘gimmicky’ vegan. Definitely not somewhere I will return to, but glad to have tried it. The only desert option was inedible. Tacos with warm canned cream....

THERE IS NO DOUBT ABOUT THE SPREAD EAGLE HAVING THE BEST VEGAN MEXICAN FOOD IN THE COUNTRY. NO DOUBT AT ALL.

As a meat eater, I would also say this is a brilliant place to go with Vegan / Veggie friends. The food is so good and everyone can order everything. This is up there with the best Mexican food in the city full stop.

Really great experience here. It is lively and has a feel good atmosphere. The music played was top notch and the service friendly and efficient. The food is a some of the best vegan variety around. Only downside is that it is quite pricey, but is London afterall.

London’s first vegan pub is a real neighbourhood gem. I’m now a regular weekly visitor due to having a dear friend in the nearby hospital. I’m working my way through the interesting menu items and the wine is excellent. Nice mix of longtime locals and hipsters on the hunt for high quality vegan fare. Worth a visit.

My partner is vegan, I am not. I really like food and am pretty fussy about what constitutes good cooking. The food was really really good. I don't usually leave reviews but feel compelled to. The food even made up for the fact that it was noisy and bustling. Service was great - professional and attentive, but slightly negatively affected by how busy it was.

The website didn't have the brunch menu (checking on mobile, not sure if missed somewhere) so surprised to not see the standard menu when we arrived. However, this was fine. Food was excellent. Service was slow - took a while to have our order taken, food came out sides 1st, then mains. I had my main before the other 2 mains came out. Waited a long time for dessert.
Seated next to a large group for a birthday so wasn't ideal in terms of noise levels.
Would go again in the evening as we would have preferred the other main menu and like to support a vegan business.

I have to say I was disappointed. It was a very noisy and crowded pub. We went on a Saturday night and were told it was not as noisy other nights. Great for a pub night out but too much for a classy vegan dinner. The food was nice but not amazing. The service was excellent - very lovely people.
