Restaurant promises a little taste of Mexico
Published 31/03/14



A NEW restaurant is promising to bring a taste of Mexico to Henley. Pachangas will open at the former Beer Tree pub on the corner of Duke Street and Greys Road next month.

Manager Carlos Tovar said the restaurant would have a chef from Mexico cooking familiar dishes such as fajitas as well as traditional cuisine such as chicken mole.

“I’m sure the people of Henley will be happy to have something different,” he said. “It’s going to have warm colours and when you come through the door it will make you feel like you’re on holiday because we’ll have Latin American music — you’ll be in little Mexico in Henley.”

The premises, which are owned by pub company Brakspear, have had a troubled history in recent years as the business went through a number of different guises.

For this change, the toilets are being refurbished, the bar made smaller and a new kitchen installed.


A poster in one of the windows says the restaurant will already take bookings.

Mr Tovar has been in the restaurant business for more than 22 years. He ran the Poco Loco in Bourne End for 12 years and then Pachangas in Marlow from 2003 until it closed in 2011.

For the last two years he has worked in security for British Airways.

Brakspear chief executive Tom Davies said: “We’re delighted to welcome the Pachangas team to the Brakspear family.

“Pachangas is a different business to our traditional pubs in Henley but it has the same ambition — to serve quality food and drink in a relaxed, friendly environment with great customer service.

“Pachangas adds a welcome diversity to Henley’s eating and drinking scene and we’re confident it will be a success. We wish Carlos and his team good luck and will be supporting them every step.”

The Beer Tree closed after landlord Paul Campion handed in his notice in October.

The New Zealander took over the pub, then called the Boathouse, in January 2012 and changed its name. He was the fifth landlord in three years.
