Discover the best food and drink experiences



Local restaurant Coach House in Moseley Village has now re-emerged from lockdown as a Mexican restaurant and cocktail bar.

Headed up by Spanish Chef Pablo Aquilla, he has created a punchy Mexican menu full of flavour and fan favourites. The menu includes dishes such as paella, tapas and burritos as well as exciting dishes such as albondigas, picantonas, and patatas bravas.

Chef Pablo says, “I love Mexican food, it’s a fun, vibrant cuisine and its great to be at the helm of this independent restaurant to bring it to the wider community. We’ve only really seen it in the big chain brands, but I want to show you how it’s done authentically with fresh ingredients.”

The new Coach House Manager Chris Delaney, has created a cocktail menu to complement these dishes, with favourites such as Aperol Spritz, Mojitos and Cosmopolitan. Chris has also created signature cocktails which are inspired by the local area, including ‘Tolkien’s Paradise’ in tribute to the local Lord of the Rings writer and ‘The Highbury Gentlemen’ which takes its name from Highbury Hall in Moseley.

Of course, you can’t have a Mexican restaurant without Tequila! You can enjoy Margaritas as well as a range of Tequilas and tonics.

With the eagerly anticipated re-opening of all restaurants and pubs this week, if you are feeling sombre with lockdown, pop on your sombreros and get into the Mexican spirit at the Coach House.
