From the outside you would be forgiven for thinking this property was derelict but once inside you are rewarded by the warm and relaxed atmosphere of the ground floor bar. Just like a 'proper' old pub, this place is filled with comfortable, old, second/third hand furniture. The restaurant is upstairs and follows a similar theme. It's not big so booking... More

This is one of my favourite restaurants in town, and my husband booked up as a surprise for me as we haven't been in a while. As I am trying to eat healthy at the moment, I had the posh fish and chips - Hake fillets served on sautéed potatoes with veggies, he had the lamb shank (my fav), and... More

Been to The Mews many times. Wedding Anniversary dinner on Saturday - great as usual, especially the duck breasts and crayfish cocktail. Danny looked after our every need including checking ingredients with Chef for specific dietary needs. Excellent. Highly recommended.

6 of us plus a 7 month old visited The Mews on a Saturday night for a birthday meal. From the moment we arrived the service was excellent; our waiter was patient, friendly and efficient with all of our requests accommodated. He thoughtfully offered us a bigger table so we had room to look after the baby and stash the... More

I had previously eaten at Mews, most notably on a Saturday night for my birthday one year and I fell in love with the place. I remember feeling after that night that they had got everything right for us, great menu, fine service, excellent food and a good wine list. Having to choose a venue for a first date with... More

Above the relaxed pub you'll find the tastefull decorated restaurant. Making reservations is recommended in this place. I consider this Southend-on-Sea's best restaurant and believe me, I tried quite a few! Worked my way thruogh the menu, starters as well as mains and you can't go wrong here. Add the service with a smile and the Leffe beers after and... More

Visited this restaurant on recommendation and we were not disappointed. Surroundings are slightly 'tatty' rather than shabby chic but the food and service were excellent. The menu is not too extensive and the choice is good. All 4 of our party thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We will definitely return.

We have a very nice meal but I really think they have taken shabby sheek to the extreme . The chair I sat on was falling apart every time I moved the arm nearly fell off. We had a drink down stairs before we had our meal and the sofa had a great big hole in the seat I had... More
