In addition to the Talliston Night Bar, the rest of the house and gardens will receive a macabre makeover. Hung with papel picada, decorated with sugar skulls and illuminated with lanterns, candles and votives. With a variety of locations to lurk in, it's a wonderful opportunity to see the house and gardens in a totally different light.

About Ques Idea Mexican Kitchen

Ques Idea Mexican Kitchen is based out of Bishops Stortford, created from owner Jo Sale's  passion for authentic Mexican food. Jo spent 15 years living in Mexico, where she learned about, cooked and ate a lot of Mexican food.

Ques Idea wanted to bring the true taste of Mexico to the UK and recreate traditional Mexican flavours with fresh ingredients, to bring street food quesadillas, tacos and snacks to our shores.  

The food is a modern take on the traditional Mexican eating experience, but always based on authentic recipes. Just as people in Mexico would eat them, on the street, at markets or in their homes.

Each dish is homemade, fresh from scratch, using 100% corn and gluten-free tortillas, as well as our authentic herbs and chillies from a London-based Mexican supplier.
