Our first visit taken by family who do visit quite often. Food was good but the service did let the evening down. Comfortable decor....

This is my first ever ! Felt I had to contribute after reading previous review. Visited a Friday evening with closest friends. 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

We have been to The Mews many times and always found the food to be of very good standard and overall experience very good. We went there at the end of October for my partners birthday, as it is his favorite place in Southend. The food as always was very nice, the service not quite so good, we waited quite... More

A nicely decorated candlelit restaurant offering a good selection of traditional food with a menu which frequently changes. The scallops are definitely worth ordering and the steaks are always a good choice. I didn't think the deserts were that great and there wasn't a cheeseboard on the menu. That aside I would recommend it and would visit this restaurant again.

First of all I will start off by saying this used to be my favourite restaurant to go to in Southend. We have dined there often, so we know the standard that is usually upheld. On this occasion we arrived on time and were seated. Shortly after we were given menus, without wine list, which we asked for. Sitting with... More

Popped in for a quick drink ended staying all night. Very relaxed and chilled it made for a very comfortable night chatting away.

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.
