4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014 NEW

This restaurant was recommended to us as being a bit quirky with excellent food, so really had no idea what to expect. Initially on arrival I was mortified, the outside was very drab with an assortment of men sitting outside having a beer or two, on entering again not what I expected, more a bit of a rough pub/wine bar,...

My wife and I occasionally enjoy a couple of drinks at the Mews on a Saturday afternoon or maybe an evening during the week so thought we'd pop in after an evening at the pictures. It was a warm evening after a very hot day, and not many customers in there, and the barmaid was clearly more interested in closing... More

Went there on a Wednesday evening with my wife and must say I was very impressed. Menu is great and every course were perfectly presented and cooked to perfection. Venue is also great for drinks if you want somewhere to relax with friends. Highly recommend.

Came here first a few years ago when the whole place was a little like a Tart's Boudoir, now it's had a shabby chic makeover. Previously the food was fairly ordinary but well cooked, now it's a bit more adventurous. Fish was cooked spot on - never easy on a busy Saturday night. There was a very loud and large... More

After a drink outside enjoying the sun on an early Saturday evening we were led to our table. The style of the restaurant is shabby chic with every table and chair being different in style. Small observation though the windows need cleaning and cob webs need attention as this is not shabby chic. We were served by a very young... More

Our daughter took us here for Father's Day lunch although we booked. Decided to go for two courses mains and dessert as we don't tend to manage three courses. Good decision as starters were generous to look at. Mains were really nice. Roast lamb or beef really nicely cooked with roast potatoes and veg including cauliflower cheese. Again all well... More

We spent an evening at the theatre almost opposite on the previous day and decided to try the upstairs restaurant at The Mews for Sunday lunch. My girlfriend went for the traditional roast beef and I had the garlic roast chicken. They both came with a Yorkshire pudding, roast potatoes. some beautifully cooked vegetables, cauliflower cheese and a rather nice... More

Always a good meal here. Have recommended The Mews to many people who have returned time after time, as I have. An unusual menu with a fusion theme, portions are large, food well cooked and presented. I would recommend.

Have tried to book this place for ages but with no luck as always booked out. We were highly delighted then when we managed to get in on spec for early booking last night. Staff very helpful and decor charming, very shabby chic. Food was excellent, a bit on the pricey side but worth it for special occasion. Try the... More
