Had an excellent Saturday evening out with friends at The Mews. Menu was imaginative and everything was cooked really well. Service was attentive but informal and loved that we could go downstairs after an dance our dinner off. Recommend for parties of friends who like a lively restaurant.

What a great evening! A very warm ambience and drinks downstairs before heading up to the restaurant. Candle lit, tables with odd chairs and Chaby chic style. We were shown to our table - as a group of eight we were comfortably seated and our orders taken by lovely staff. Menu was good, food was cooked well and the wine... More

I've been going to The Mews for as long as I can remember, be it downstairs for a drink, or upstairs for food. I went there for a post birthday meal Saturday night and was more than surprised to be given a separate vegan menu when we sat down. Two starters, five mains and three deserts. Wow, The Mews just...

Thank you for your review. Our table layout has been the same for 12 years, as you would know from your previous visits to us. Unfortunately, we cannot control our noise levels when people are enjoying themselves. I am sorry you felt the food was only okay, we pride ourselves on the quality of food we produce. I do hope...

We booked this restaurant 'blind' for a meal on New Years Eve. We had a really good meal which was hot and well presented. The menu was fairly creative with a good choice. Despite being NYE and them being very busy, we were not rushed and the service was very attentive. Very happy with the experience

Went here for lunch the Thursday before Christmas, dined upstairs which is lovely. The food and the cocktails were delicious. Just a shame it was so quiet when we were there. It was busier with a few more groups of people as we were leaving. But definitely will return.

Food was probably the best I have tasted in Southend for a long time..... & I've been eating here in my home town for quite a few years ! The home made bread was delicious(along with everything else... More
