Service with a smile made such a difference. Great atmosphere too, food came after a short wait. Generous portions and lots to chose from on the menu. Very reasonably... More

For over 30 years, Barbacoa has offered some of the best food & entertainment in Crosby & Waterloo. Our Downstairs Lounge serves a great range of Handmade Pizza, Burgers and Full Bar Meals which are all prepared & cooked onsite, unlike Pub Chain Brands who use ready meals.

The First Floor Blundell Room is perfect for weddings and family occassions and has a full dance floor & Audio System. Every Sunday is our famous Carvery with 4 roasts and all the accompaniments. Every Friday, Dinner & Live Music with a 3 course meal and entertainment from the best bands around with music from soul to party classics. Our Friday Nights are perfect for Hen Nights, Works Nights and any other celebration or just an excuse to paint the town! Every Saturday is Live Music in our Lounge from local duos and solo artists. Have a look at our website for all the menus and entertainment, we look forward to welcoming you
