The Droylsden Tapas.
Welcome to El Sapo Perezoso, Droylsden, commonly known as The Droylsden Tapas or to give it the English translation, The Lazy Toad.
Both El Sapo Perezoso Tapas Bar and Restaurant and the Lazy Toad public house have been a feature and part of the Droylsden landscape for many years.
Until recently El Sapo Perezoso (Droylsden Tapas) was prominent on Market Street Droylsden with it’s distinctive Spanish facade and interior.
However, the landscape is changing on Market Street with many of the older properties closing their doors and giving over to redevelopment in the area spurred on by the building of Droylsden Marina and modern housing surrounding it.
Following the closure of the Droylsden Tapas premises for resale by the owners, the decision was made to relocate the restaurant to within the Lazy Toad Public House just to the rear of the old restaurant on Ashton Hill Lane offering the same great food, service and value for money, and as ever a favourite on Trip Adviser.
El Sapo Perezoso was relaunched within the Lazy Toad with it’s own cozy and authentic interior, plus it’s own entrance and also an outdoor dining area to give that extra Spanish feel of eating Al-Fresco when the weather permits!
It’s also a great place for a summer get together with friends and family to enjoy a bottle of wine, a jug of Sangria and some simple lunchtime Spanish Tapas.
After your meal you can stay and enjoy the Spanish experience with drinks served at your table, or make your way through the adjoining door into the Lazy Toad pub and enjoy it’s aclaimed friendly atmosphere and selection of ales and wines.
The Covid-19 Pandemic
Shortly after opening and like all other establishments the restaurant and pub were required to close due to the pandemic.
However, undeterred and determined to bring the amazing food and experience of Spain to the Droylsden clientele during the lockdown, owner Suzanne and her staff rallied together to provide a take away and delivery service offering not only the full Tapas menu, but also introducing a freshly made Pizza Menu, Burger Menu, Breakfast menu and other gorgeous food.
Customers can order, pay over the phone and collect at an allotted time, or a professional delivery service is offered observing all the Government guidelines on social distancing.
