On Sunday we popped in for lunch. When we arrived we were seated quickly but service was super slow. Lunch took two hours, forgot our vegetables, drinks we're quick, wrong dessert. Want to stress this shouldn't be the blame of the waiting staff - two staff covering 8 tables. However, they were very apologetic and gave our deserts and water... More

We three went for Sunday lunch last week and have been before. Let me say the staff are good and the ambiance lovely but from there it goes down hill. To start all the wine glasses on the table were not polished and rather dirty. In a darkened restaurant that might pass but with the sun shining through the window... More

Isn't much more to say here - excellent venue for a quick drink - the restaurant is also excellent, amongst the best in Southend.

Went alone for a roast dinner on a Sunday without booking. Even though they were extremely busy they still went above and beyond to make sure that I was seated and well looked after. Top notch service and top quality food.

Had the most wonderful meal at the mews last night! Can highly recommend the asian platter and fillet steak, both cooked to perfection. The best sea bass I've ever had and the lemon/lime tart was devine! Yummy....

Went to this restaurant last night and I have to say that I was very impressed. Everything from the arrival cocktails in the bar downstairs to the food was top notch. We had a broad range of food from scallops, to the best chicken noodle soup you are ever likely to have and a prawn ball and chicken starter that... More

What a fab meal. 4 of us went for dinner and we didn't have one complaint between us. The steaks were fantastic. We had New York strip steak and 2 fillets which were just melt in your mouth. The pork was also excellent. Lovely restaurant with fabulous service. Well done The Mews.

Great food and a nice friendly service. I had the scallops to start and the ribeye steak as a main and both were excellent. Well worth a visit.

We went to The Mews, without a reservation, for Sunday lunch. We both had a lamb roast which was excellent and plentiful. It was all cooked to perfection. Our deserts were also good and great value as they were free with the lunch. The service was first class and we were made to feel most welcome. The only thing we... More

I thought wife about reviewing this restaurant/bar - I want to keep it a secret as I was so impressed with it. But, alas, my generosity got the better of me! How could I hold back on such a gem? From the moment you arrive you get the sense that this 'out of the way' lounge bar and upstairs restaurant... More
