WELCOME TO THE MULE.
We’re not your traditional Mexican place. We just happen to think that tacos are a dish best served fun, with a side of liquor. Welcome to The Mule, where tacos, tequila and bourbon come to play.

Located in one of London's most treasured spaces, we think we’ll be your new favourite lunch spot, your regular late-night haunt and your go-to destination for a good drink. Our bartenders have crafted a bourbon- and tequila-focused cocktail menu that will surprise and fascinate, and we also have a variety of beers on tap.

And don’t forget the food. From Baja wings to Brussels Sprouts tacos, chef Matthew Kershaw’s menu offers an approachable and fresh twist on your favourite flavours from way down south. Our tacos range from classic Mexican to weird-and-wild-you’ve-gotta-try-this. All of our food is 100% gluten-free and we offer a variety of fare that is sure to delight your vegetarian and vegan side.

    Our server Elle was phenomenal. We tried one of their special cocktails and it was also amazing. Their food is always great and the staff are always so friendly.

    Fresh and tasty tacos. Our table tried all but the Cease & Desist and the Brussels Sprouts. All good with Sweet Potato Halloumi the fav. Nice drink selection. A little chintzy on the Queso dip (which was very good) to chip ratio. Server appropriate amount of attentiveness and service time great. Will go back.

    The service was spectacular and the food delectable. We had margaritas, guac, queso, with chips and good cross section of tacos and a delectable chocolate explosion for dessert. One of us can’t stand cilantro and they were able to accommodate us.

    I've been at this restaurant multiple times before, so when my birthday rolled up, I thought what a better place than The Mule? However, I was wrong. My group was not huge but not small, we were 14. The room was great, the ambiance was fantastic, the bathroom situation was perfect and the flavour of the food delish!. However, there were some issues. I ordered appetizer for the table, they never came as appetizers. We ordered 2 dishes of wings, each one was 4 wings, this is a bit ridiculous for the price ($3.50 per wing!), but we laughed about it and made a note to not order wings at a taco place. To our surprise the manager told us that our opinion matter so he was going to send complementary wings, so we felt better however, they never came. I absolutely love the spicy margarita at this place and I made sure I ordered it, I was charged for it but it was just the regular. I then thought well, let's order of a pitcher, once again, regular margarita despite asking for the spicy one. They didn't even had jalapeños. I made sure each couple would sit next to their significant other so bills wouldn't be a mess and despite the waitress advising she would write everything down, a significant amount of our bills were wrong and me and my friends ended up settling with each other afterwards. Some of the food ordered never arrived but right at the end which it can be annoying for the guest who had to watch as everyone else ate. Lastly, no restaurant has never not mention a "happy birthday" " hope you had a great night" or something along the lines. It would have been pretty hard to miss it was a birthday as there were several presents on the floor It is something that makes guest feel welcomed and appreciated but this opportunity was totally missed. So I guess, to conclude, would I go back with my husband, certainly. Would I ever do another event or bring more than 1 person with me? Most certainly not.

    The Mule is larger inside than I expected so lots of seating and outdoor patio in the back. Really delicious cocktails and the tacos were all yummy.
