Had a bad experience with a Groupon voucher, the management refused to accept it even though we'd pre-booked. They got nasty and asked us to leave, we ended up just paying for drinks. The menu doesn't have a great deal of selection, and it's fairly tasteless (apart from jerk chicken which is very spicy). Not worth the money given the... More

Food is reasonable, service friendly and you can take your chance on the live music downstairs which is usually more hit than miss

Always friendly staff, interesting characters and decor, when we went in they had live music on. Fab cocktails and not full of underage drinkers. Had some nachos. huge portion for the price we paid.

We went here on a Friday evening,as I had read a lot of good reviews and, having passed it a number of times when wandering round Stamford, and wanted to see if it was worth a visit. It certainly was!! The staff were very friendly and attentive, the place was clean and tidy and, best of all, no TV in... More

We wouldn't have known this place was here if it wasn't for Groupon. Using our voucher we entered with no experience of this place at all. Fantastically decorated we were welcomed by friendly attentive staff, the waitress couldn't have done any more. The menu was excellent and our presented food was exquisite, so much so that there is no doubt... More

Inside, several rooms combine to make the most eclectic setting for a gregarious night out. There is an outside seating / barbecue / beer festival area for flirting smokers and sunworshippers too. I have laughed and cried there, seen top comedy acts, danced, sang, listened to poetry, breathed quietly through the reading of a play, seen a card game lost,... More

When I go out with the other half or with friends, Mama's is the place we go. The beer is great, the decor sets it apart from the other pubs and bars in town, and the atmosphere is friendly and welcoming. The music upstairs is always chilled out - mostly blues and soul music - and downstairs is the only... More

Mama Liz's seems to be mainly for 20-30 year olds in the main but I took my 11 and 12 year old daughters to see a friend in a band on a Sunday afternoon. Thanks to Kev the barman and the chef, my daughters are insisting on going every week now. They were pampered and entertained throughout. I think this... More

Overly-priced, overly-spiced food from a very limited menu. The place looks very impressive but compared to other places in Stamford it's tacky and not worth visiting. Much better food offered in many other places.
