Great British food. Cozy sophisticated bar lounge. Great for a first date or outing with close friends. In door and out door seating. Club downstairs for dancing the night away if you feel like continuing your evening. A little hidden gem. Good for private functions and they offer wine tastings and other event options.
Mews is what a cat does. It should not be what a small street is named. That's crazy, London. Get your life together.
I came here with a group of five other guys. I'm a guy too. That makes six guys. Just doing that math for you in case you were as bright as the guy who came up with the word Mews for a road.
This place is pretty cool. I'd say you should check it out but I don't know you so I don't know if that is good or terrible advice. I will assume it is good advice so I can sleep well tonight...and for many nights to come.
The bathrooms are a little tricky. You have to share a small sink area with the opposite gender. I don't mind that, but sometimes it is tricky. I guess it depends how much you need to wash your hands. There are also book pages used as wallpaper. I got lost reading for a while. It was captivating. Hence the need for excessive handwashing.
I can't remember what I ate. But I do remember that I only drank water that night and that I still felt like I was getting a little drunk. Sometimes that happens to me when I drink too much water. Especially when I'm in London. Not sure what that's about. I think I will call my physician tomorrow.
We got scolded for speaking too loudly outside as we left the restaurant. It wasn't that late and we weren't that loud. I think somebody was just cranky.
This place was a little too *posh* if you know what I mean. Just because something has the word mayfair on it doesn't mean that it has an excuse to jack up its prices and ignore its customers.
Hey this was a fun little place we discovered while walking an we got hungry. Tucked away in some tiny ally this restaurant/lounge is perfect for a nice bite. At first we wanted to sit inside but change sour minds and sat outside, they had space heaters cause it was December but u have to be lucky to sit close enough to one. The service was excellent and so was the food. But it is quite costly heck it's just off Bond Street :) so come prepared.
Awesome place. Extensive menu. All three of us had grilled chicken with exotic mushrooms plus chips. Delish. Service was just average. Adorable neighborhood. Loved the " help yourself" huge candy jars on the way out.
Mews of Mayfair is located in a small small court. I insist on small as there is only Mews and one other bar (which i suspect share the same owner) in that smal small court.
The court is lovely, hiding, and beautiful at night. Perfect for drinks outside with your friends. There are even some torches that keep you worm when it gets a bit chilly.
I suggest you go on the website as it's well designed, and all info are in there.
I can only give my opinion on 2 things:
- The food, which i must say, is really not fantastic at all. Really not. It's kind of flat, not special flavors. I've tried the house burger, which was really poor. After all i'm fond of burgers, you can't play me on that subject.
- The service was irregular, i can't say the waitress were bad as they were helpfull and smiling all along. But the organization is terrible, I've seen 3 different waitress over my meal, no appointed one, and there were always going back and forth, which was not efficient at all.
So if you just want a place to chill with your friends in a nice setting, you can go there definetely.
But please, for the love of food, don't go there to have dinner, as there are so many place in London where you can really enjoy your meal.
Prices: £15-30 for a main meal, £9-12 a cocktail
Now this is what I call a great bar. Showed up around 11pm and got in without any issues....take the staircase down to the main floor and its like descending into fun-land.
The bar is accessible from all sides and the 3 bartenders made sure the drinks kept flowing...shots and cocktails all night long.
DJ was on point too. he went from Hip-Hop to Soul to Dance to Funky House...last time i had such a great time I was in Vegas
Location, location, and location. A bit pricey, but this is in Mayfair.....
The ground level bar (inside and outside) area exudes elegance and comfort, without making you feel stuffy. We had a nice business event in the third floor Chef's Room, what a beautiful surrounding! The well-managed staff certainly knows how to provide attentive yet discreet services. Highly recommend this place if you are planning for a group event (up to 28) or for special occasions.
Great bar, but where is the recession?
Tuesday night packed to the doors and outside area completely full.
Good choice of drinks and friendly service, but Oh! the prices.
However, if you must drink in Mayfair and you want to do so in nice surroundings, then you must expect to pay.
Will definitely go again but £12 for a Mojito. Wow
After a frankly microscopic yet expensive meal, we were further dismayed upon realizing that we'd completely missed the boat on London's fashion night out. Despite these setbacks, we were bound and determined to locate the aftaparty...or failing that, the afta aftaparty...or failing that, a waffle house. That's how two transplants, one from Hollywood and Fats from NY, found themselves in a strange alley straight out of Harry Potter, following some glitterati-looking cool kids. We followed them right into a subterranean bar, which also seemed like the only thing open at 11pm at night.
The place was pretty swanky with ample low slung seating and an interesting crowd with sprinkles of tuxedo clad charity ball refugees and model-looking girls amongst a pride of young, attractive bankers. We also found some unexpected sparkle in the form of an old friend from New York who'd recently moved to London for work.
Unfortunately, on that Wednesday night, last call was 12:30am, and we were tucked into a cab by 1am after lingering over the last pricey (albeit delicious)drink.
PARTING THOUGHTS: Is that real scotch in the display case by the door, or is that dyed water? Why is the champagne bottle on the bar caged?
Anyone near Mayfair looking for a great bar at any point of the day should definitely check out Mews as it is a fantastic venue which looks great and has fantastic service.
During the day the upstairs bar area is a great place for lunch, offering a wide variety of dishes with comfy seating and table service.
In the evening the larger downstairs area also comes into play. The bars are excellently managed and the bar staff really know how to make great cocktails. The atmosphere is also really good and as a place for large groups or for special occasions this place is thoroughly recommended. Okay it's a bit pricier than other places but it could be worse and you really do get quality in return.
Fun location down a small alley. The Mews restaurant is upstairs inside. They also have an outside location in good weather. Call and clarify what you're going to get.
Service is very efficient and pleasant. The food is good, not great. The menu is somewhat odd - pubby food with a few upscale accents. We each had grilled sandwiches then shared mac & cheese, rocket salad & wilted spinach. The sides were tasty. The sandwiches were bread-y. Avoid them. But go to Mews. Very fun find.
The waitress was pretty nice to us and she put us in a private room facing the street, but most of the people on the street were smoking and all the smoke ended up in our private room. The drinks were good the ambiance excellent but the smoke intolerable.
Mews of Mayfair
Tucked away down a passage way off New Bond Street, this place is worth seeking out. Perhaps best kept for a special occasion or business lunch, Mews of Mayfair will impress nevertheless. The ground level is a study in retro chic and an ideal place to meet your guests over an aperitif; upstairs is light-filled minimalism with the emphasis rightly placed on what's going on your plate. For the 'wow' factor I suggest Assiette of Garstang Pork, Peas and Trompette de la Mort (that's a mushroom to you and me) washed down with a nice rosé.
Attractive staff with beautiful manners.
Downstairs is a cute little bar with great cocktails, chilled out music and beautiful decor! Relaxing in those huge, baroque seats after a hard day's work doesn;t go amiss! The cocktails are about £8 each or something, so not great if you're looking for a 'credit crunch' night out, but they are delicious. 'Swings and roundabouts', as they say!
We then ate in the restaurant upstairs which, although the lighting was slightly too bright for my taste, had ab.so.lute.ly gorgeous food. I had the duck and my dinner guest had the lamb. Both were divine. Attentive waiting staff, extremely clean restarant area and bathrooms and to-die-for food made for a great evening! (Although I would have rather had the champagne at the table rather that where they kept it at the bar so I can top myself up as and when, know what I mean?)
I really want to eat at the Chef's table, check out the website it looks fantastic! (Hint hint, if you're reading this, Chef ;-) )
A very cool bar! I have been a few times now and have have found it to be one of the best after work bars around. Its probably best to go on a Friday as it's difficult to leave!
It attracts the more well heeled type of clientele; possibly due to the prices .... :)
It has 2 floors, the upstairs tends get a bit busy and you can never sit down so I prefer the downstairs where it's dimly let and has a more chilled atmosphere. You can generally get a seat/table as well which means no queueing at the bar... lovely!
I am looking forward to the summer as it also has a courtyard area to drink your cocktail Al fresco... Ahhhh heaven!
This is a first class bar in London and has a great local Mayfair crowd.
Go for spirits over cocktails as the whiskey and vodka's are amazing
Also, try a shot - Double sized shot glasses
Tucked away in Lancashire Court, just off New bond Street, is the fantastic bar called Mews of Mayfair.
It's obvious from the outset that a lot of time and attention has gone not only in the design of the bar and it's menu but in investing in great staff capable of ensuring that your visit in enjoyable.
Daytimes there is a wide ranging lunch-menu offering a range of salads, sandwiches and mains which has never disappointed.
At evening the downstairs bar opens up the space and it's late-license ensures the place is full of the young, beautiful and slightly loaded.
Prices are more expensive than you may find in the centre of town but are akin to it's more immediate competition. In return you'll be gauranteed immaculate service and i would recommend this venue in particular if you were looking for somewhere to host a special night out, to impress a person or people and to end a day of business in style.
Great food. The veal was great. The lamb was very good. Overall the kids enjoyed it very much.
The best bar/lounge/restaurant/club in London if you want a stylish, low-key night out were you can just have fun. Very stylish and relaxed setting, and a terrific crowd of people who are looking to have fun rather than pose. One place with a club, bar/lounge with music that you can actually converse to, and a great restaurant, and everything here is set for a great night out. Nice mixed crowd of young Mayfair workers and people who make this a destination.
Music in the club downstairs is amazing, I liked every song, and everyone's having fun and looks amazing, everyone was dancing. Drinks were great, even though not very strong.
I guess my only complaint would be that they only seem to serve one type of beer (great beer, served ICE cold, but still).
Great cocktails and nice party atmosphere, but the night was completely ruined by the bouncers:
We were there in the downstairs area since 6:30 in the afternoon, drinking and chatting, then a few of us went out for a cigarette just before 11, and we ended up having an argument with the bouncers because they wouldn't let us back downstairs, they wanted us to to queue and pay to get into the club!
I ended up threatening to call the police, since my bag and jacket was still downstairs!
Really bad attitude! Shame...
Mews of Mayfair is a lovely lounge/restaurant.
A very relaxed atmosphere, amazing décor, and a great crowd.
The food is great, I've been there twice and enjoyed it thoroughly,
perfect place to chill at night time, over a drink, good musicalways on my list!
Came to this place completely by chance while walking around Mayfair on Sunday and looking for a sunday roast. I will not comment about the bar but mostly about the experience we had in the restaurant.
Service is excellent and all staff are friendly and attentive. The food was really beautiful and all dishes are quite generous. So really a rather positive experience. Fair to say that it is an expensive restaurant but the food is high standard so makes sense.
Only small drawbacks were the fact that waiters always felt the need to keep serving us the wine until the bottle was finished, and despite our glass being already full. To note: it's not because the bottle is finished that we will order another one....
And despite the tiramisu being excellent, it was a huge portion (more like 4 portions). I'm not a big fan of desserts but clearly after such generous dishes before, we could have done with half of that Tiramisu.
I was meeting an old friend who was in town and his friend took us along to this spot, hidden away in this alley I had had no idea about (don't you love this about London? The many secrets to discover!). We went upstairs to the restaurant and were told there would be a wait so we trotted down to the cocktail bar (leather sofas and dim lighting, mmm) to wait. The three of us were a bit formal and awkward to start with (It was the first time I was meeting the friend of my friend) but things got less so after the cocktails came around. The cocktail offerings in this establishment are absolutely ace, might I say. I went for one of the whisky cocktails, New Highland, because you just don't see enough of these, in my opinion - the drink is tasty but potent, not designed for wimps!
We were ushered into the restaurant before we were halfway done with our drinks and the waitstaff transferred all the drinks over to our corner table seamlessly, taking care to put away our coats and bags in the adjacent cloakroom. I enjoyed the banter with our Scottish waiter who highly approved of my choice of cocktail made with Glenmorangie Original.
I note that the menu has changed since my visit to the establishment in winter. I had some delish Pumpkin soup for starters, followed by a generous portion of King Prawns and vegetables with Sweet Chilli sauce for mains. I had initially planned to go for another dish but the waiter informed me that the preparation hadn't turned out quite as well on the day as they would have hoped, and he steered me towards the prawns and I didn't regret it. The grilled fish that my friend had ordered looked like a catch too, might I say (no puns intended, of course :P). We followed the mains with a shared dessert of very chocolatey mousse, which I find a tad too rich for my palate after the rather heavy dinner. Our coffee came with a generous serving of excellent petit fours for the table - if I'd known, I might have skipped dessert! We had to rush out of the dinner because of various reasons, but the waiters were prompt with bringing the bill and offering us our coats etc - I was pleased with the service considering the restaurant was well busy through all of this!
So why only 4 stars? Because at this price, you would expect a lot of what is on offer. And the food is obviously fresh and well made but it lacked memorability - I'm struggling to remember the taste of the not inexpensive food, and that justifies taking one star off. Also, my friend paid for this meal (terribly generous and unexpected!) which is why I might have a more favourable view of the restaurant than might otherwise be justified, so I must desist. But I do reiterate, the cocktail certainly kicked ass!
Great bar off of a great shopping street, but be prepared to spend a fair bit (even for london) Beautiful from the outside and has three very different flavors inside - quieter (but still full) dining room upstairs serving a delicious varied menu, bar on the ground floor, but most of the action is downstairs. perfect place to spend a birthday1
There was like no one there on a Thursday night around midnight/1am. Maybe because there were no people, the bar and lower floor area looked just dark and sparse, like a cave. Not impressed that night, but people in our group had come and had better times before.
very nice food and desert. friendly staffs.Gonna be really great to go here when it's summer to sit on the terrace.
I love this place - tucked away in a mews and with a very relaxed atmosphere. I usually drop by for a coffee or two when I am in the area and the staff are fab - some places get a bit funny if you don't order one of the more expensive drinks but they have always been lovely. Great place to unwind after experiencing the madness of Oxford Street.
Cool bar, good drinks. Mix of people - some very drunk, some very cute and many just wanting to be either. Always fun. Definitely a go to destination
This bar is fantastic. It is tucked behind New bond street and you have to walk down a cobbled path to reach it (don't do this in stilettos!!). Mews attracts the Mayfair up and coming 30 something business types. Don't let that put you off. I'm 20 something and felt very welcomed. The crowd are great. There is nothing pretentious about Mews and I'm sure that you will make one or two friends by the end of the night. The service is brilliant glasses are never empty. The staff are very friendly. Mews is truly a find.
I agree with all the reviews above! Its a stylish, cool premium bar which makes you feel classy as soon as you step in. Its unpretentious in its charm and the service is impeccable.
Good food, wasn't mad about the new potatoes and the wine though. A bit forgettable all-in-all.
