Went to Mews for the first time last night and were not disappointed. The place has a buzzy bar downstairs with a small restaurant upstairs. It was busy with a lovely atmosphere - a good start! Service was really efficient without being obtrusive and the staff were lovely. Our food was wonderful. My red mullet starter was tasty and the... More

We ate here with two friends last night, it was the first time any of us had been. Loved the feel of the place, nice 'shabby chic' decor with mis matched tables and chairs etc. Really buzzy vibe to the place with background music playing too, but we could still able to hold a conversation without having to shout!

Went there on good recommendations but whilst the ambience was good the food did not really hit the spot. The main course came too quickly after the starter, leading us to believe that it had been waiting a while for us to finish. The duck was like a piece of leather and the lamb shank very dry. Some of the... More

This is a small out of the way establishment but well worth seeking out. Don't be put off by the rather unpromising exterior. The range of craft beers on offer downstairs was awesome - no other word for it - and if all you need is liquid refreshment in relaxed surroundings this place is for you. If you enjoy good... More

Beautiful food, cooked to absolute perfection. I'd like to thank the chef Martyn Fox for helping to create a wonderful night for my sisters birthday!

Ten of us had dinner here last Wednesday. The bar area downstairs has a nice atmosphere and they serve plenty of different ales. The meal was great - lots of really good choice, well cooked, with decent reasonably priced wine. This was my first time eating in Southend - I really can't believe there are 30 better restaurants in the... More

The food was superb, perfectly cooked. The vegetables were cooked to perfection. The presentation was great, flavour was better still. Service was warm and friendly.

This little hidden away gem in Southend did really surprise me as I didn't know what to expect. We went here just for drinks for a new year catch up with mates. There was a really good selection of beer from craft to locally produced. Staff were really helpful in telling us all about the different types of beers. It... More

My boyfriend took me here for my birthday and it is the perfect place for something like that. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was very cool. We have enjoyed coming here for some relaxing drinks on other ocassions as well as the other bar Clarence Yard. We had steak and duck which was tender and cooked perfectly.
