LONG WAIT FOR POOR FOOD

Despite his best efforts the barman come waiter could make make up for the very long wait for a drink and what turned out to be an average at bests meal. The venue was also very cold with one of our party not taking off her coat. This place could be a lot better - seemed to be that they... read more

Honestly, the place is not that special. The live music is fun, and the atmosphere is good...the food, on the other hand is disappointing. The dishes sound good on the menu, but the portions are very small. I would skip the food here and just go for the music.

Great place to come for a relaxed but nice night out - yummy cocktails (look out for the 2-4-1 offers on certain weeknights) Lots of local live music plays here, and even Joss Stone herself on occasion. Have yet to visit for a dinner but came once and enjoyed FREE curry with my drinks for a live music event! How... More

Reasonable entry cost. Good service at the bar. Never seen any trouble here. Wendy mother of Joss happy to chat. Varied groups throughout the year with disco music after.

We had a really nice evening at Mama Stones, but the edge was taken off when we were asked to pay an extra £3 per person to stay seated at our table, even though we were still going to be buying drinks and they had finished serving meals. We were seated quickly, it was quite quiet when we first went... More

A group of us went in mid February, for a leaving 'Do'. We arrived at 19.45, but our food order wasn't taken 'til 20.15, and the food didn't arrive until 21.00. Some people had theirs well before the rest of us, the food was Mexican style, but bland, and the small amount of meat in each dish was padded out... More

i used to go here when it was the hub. it wasn't the best place then, but there was live music of any genre and a slightly rocky dingy atmosphere. was a good place to hang out, have a drink, watch a band. taken over by mama stone, the place nowadays caters entirely for lovers of generic pop/funk, it's too...

Mama Stone's is somewhere I would definitely return to for the live music but not for the food. I ordered chicken enchiladas which were a bit taseless, no sauce and no advertised refried beans which are no longer on the menu apparently. Our whole group were disappointed with their meals. The staff were lovely but have your meal elsewhere and... More
