With so many 'big names' to compete with in and around Holetown the Mews might sneak under your radar. Don't let it because you would be missing out. The food is simply delicious and everything is sourced locally. Attentive service. Will definitely be back.

We were looking for a bistro style restaurant on A Friday night without booking. They made us welcome and all of us had starters, main and desserts which were well received. The staff are incredible and the live music was fun. Worth a visit.
