Today I went to the mews for lunch with my daughter. The chilli prawn starter flavours were suttle and well balanced. The roast chicken main was cooked by head chef fox to perfection as usual! Lovely atomosphere and very friendly and helpful staff. I cant wait to visit again!

Had the fillet steak with mushroom sauce. The atmosphere was fantastic, the staff were amazing and most of all my steak was cooked to perfection! Visiting again tomorrow for lunch, definitely my new favourite place to eat in Southend.

We held a meeting followed by a dinner in the restaurant upstairs. The staff were friendly and efficient and coped with a large group all ordering at the same time and paying individually well. The food was great and there was a wide choice available. The lighting and decor create a warm and friendly environment. Would definitely use again

We have been eating here on average once a week for the last 5 years and we love it. The sunday lunch is great value for money and we never have a bad experience. The bar downstairs is a lovely place to relax and the children are welcome.

The Mews is a great venue and good atmosphere and the food in the restaurant is excellent and has been so for a number of years (not many restaurants maintain continuity) BUT the whole place needs a freshen up-not that clean, chairs broken, sofas need repairing badly-so fairly shabby-there is shabby chic and shabby ****!

Our first time to The Mews and were very impressed. There was a nice vibe in the bar and restaurant. The bar had a good range of bottled ales with helpful, knowledgeable staff. Upstairs in the restaurant, the service was polite and efficient. We each had 3 courses and couldn't fault the food - all dishes were well presented and... More

My wife's friends constant comment. So we went tonight with daughter and her boyfriend for my wife's birthday. Fantastic time. From the choice of ales including Dead Pony to the very large menu everything was first class. We went early and the place filled quickly all reserved tables. Starters we had were pigeon, and 3 scallops and back pudding. Mains... More

Meet up here with friends on a regular basis, the place is a great find, tucked away in town. Unique style, great staff and lots of drink choices. The food is delicious and normally eat here on special occasions... The roast is amazing. Definitely recommend for a drink or meal!!!
