What to expect other than great food …
Pinto opened in November 2010 in what had previously been a photography studio, which meant that internally the space was subdivided into lots of small rooms, and at first it was bloomin’ difficult to appreciate its size and scale. However, following some good old Loungers sledgehammer action we’ve been able to reveal a very spacious and quirky space. Pinto comprises a typical Victorian shop unit to the front and a surprisingly large room with very high ceilings to the rear. With eighty covers internally and a further thirty in the courtyard terrace to the rear she’s a bit of a tardis is this one.
Having a party? We’d love to play host …
You can book a large party and we never disappoint. From a quiet table for two or something a little larger to an office catchup or a quick meet up before going on for the evening, we can cater for any occasion.
Whilst stripping out the unit we uncovered some old Victorian tiles on the wall which is now in our back bar. Suffice to say we opted to keep the tiles and after some good elbow grease and general TLC they came up a right treat. On the opening night a chap came in and told us that his father used to work in the building when it was a butchers many moons ago (hence the tiles).
