The food was delicious, no faults there. Arrived in good time and very well presented. Make sure you check your bill before paying. A table next to us were charged for their drinks twice and so were we. An honest mistake I'm sure but that honest mistake could cost you £20.

We opted for the King prawn chilli coconut for starters which was to die for and wished we could have ordered this as a main. Also ordered the salmon, crayfish & prawn starter & Mains jerk chicken...

Excellent turnout as always ! Best cheesecake we have ever tried, roast beef is the communal favourite with proper gravy and excellent veg including cauliflower cheese. You won't be disappointed.

We were staying with friends and they had booked this restaurant for us all . We had cocktails in the bar downstairs first and they were all excellent. Restaurant is located upstairs and we had an early booking for 7pm, we were advised that the table was just for 2 hours and initially worried but the times were fine .... More

We went to the Mews on a recent Saturday night with 11 family members for a 50th birthday and we had a lovely evening. The food was great and the staff were incredibly friendly and eager to please. My only one small criticism would be the time it took the side dishes to come out with the mains, the steak... More

Visited the mews twice in the last couple of months, food was excellent. Service is excellent and very friendly. Cocktails are superb and range of beers and spirits superb. Relaxed atmosphere in the bar and in the restaurant. Thoroughly enjoyed it and well worth a visit. Book in advance as the restaurant has about 40 covers.

Had 3 courses each, and 3 very good bottles of wine, I had the Bass for main which was possibly the best Bass I've ever had, my friend had the Thai rubbed rib-eye which was extraordinarily good. The white Rioja and Sauvignon... More
