We visited with family last night for my mother in laws 70th, we were only able to get a very early booking at 6:30 as already fully booked. We arrived and ordered from a beautiful selection on the menu, the food was great. One of the party ordered a steak medium rare, but when she cut in it was clear... More

We went into The Mews 19th December to book a family lunch for 12 people. We saw a helpful female who agreed a time of 12.30 with us for Saturday 2nd January. Rather than being in the restaurant upstairs, we asked if it was possible to have the lunch downstairs in the more relaxed bar lounge. She confirmed that was... More

Arrived on Saturday night to celebrate our anniversary only to be told that despite an e-mail booking and two phone calls to confirm they had lost my reservation (apparently not the only one that night) and that not only did they not have a table for us they had RUN OUT OF FOOD. A further insight to their customer service... More

We held our wedding reception at the Mews in January and it couldn’t have been any better! We choose The Mews as it is a beautiful setting – vintage / industrial look with a really relaxed vibe. It also has separate dining and drinking areas, and from a previous visit we knew the food was first class! What we didn’t... More

Having booked a table for 2 for Saturday night which was confirmed twice, when we arrived last night it was clear that there was no chance of a table being available in the short to medium term. Following a conversation with 3 different members of staff, they finally admitted they had overbooked. They asked us to go down into the... More

This place has all what I like in a restaurant, great food, quirky decor and helpful friendly staff. We had a meal early as going to the theatre, which probably if you like quiet is a good time, as gives you a chance also to take in the surroundings and detail put into it. The food was exquisite; so tasty... More

Had lunch in ground-floor bar. Chose charcuterie board & club sandwich, and beer & wine from wide selection. Both items of food were of generous size, well presented and extremely satisfying. The setting is relaxed "shabby-chic". Have also dined upstairs, which also serves excellent food.

The mews has a great atmosphere and serves good food but you just book in advance as the restaurant gets booked up quickly.
