Start spending some money on this place. It's filthy. Every time I visit there are problems with the toilets, on Saturday it was flooding in the corridor leading too them. Lovely having to wade through 3 inches of goodness knows what. Talking of toilets, old, dirty and hideous springs to mind. Everything in this place looks like it needs a... More

OK where do I begin? The venue is marketed as a trendy music/ mexican restaurant and it failed on both! We booked a table 1 month in advance and were told the only table available was at 7pm. When we got there the place was empty and we had the pick of the whole place. At no stage during the... More

Went for Joss Stone / Beverley Knight gig and overall it was an enjoyable evening, mostly because i was with good friends - the venue needs a better sound system, we arrived an hour before the main event and were by the bar - we had a good view of the stage but could barely hear Joss or Beverley sing,...

A great evening accompanied by 5 girl friends, food was good, plenty of it and full of flavour, there was a problem with one of the main courses (burnt) however this was dealt with speedily and professionally, which was greatly appreciated. Unfortunately due to the management putting our table right in front of the stage we had to move when... More

Went for dinner, and found it an odd set up, not really dinner tables and chairs. The staff were fantastic and the food was great. Later the tables are moved for dancing and live music, which was also great.

The staff were incredibly attentive, helpful and very funny - they certainly made sure that we were well looked after. Once we had eaten, we had... More

Have been to Mama Stones a few times now, and have always enjoyed the music and liked the place generally, but with a few niggles. Went in last night with a group for my birthday after a meal and drinks elsewhere, so arrived at approx 12.30. We were charged £5 each entry fee and after queuing for drinks which came... More
