The Brasserie at Mews of Mayfair features British produce and British cooking extensively: there is even a map of the British Isles on the menu showing where their raw materials come from, such as beef from Devon and Yorkshire, and halloumi cheese from Sussex. The food is fairly simple modern fare and includes five cuts of steak cooked on the Josper Grill. On Sundays there is a ‘Roast and Toast’ menu, two courses for £20 or three for £25. There are two bars, the Cocktail Bar on the ground floor (which also serves light meals and afternoon tea) and the Lounge Bar (with DJ’s decks) in the basement. There are three private rooms: the top-floor Dining Room with its own Chef’s Menu, the Art Gallery, and La Cave, which doubles as a wine retailer.

I took my girlfriend here for her birthday and we both had a great time. It's relaxed and not overly swanky environment but it is tucked away in the beautiful little secluded pedestrian mews in Mayfair. As you should expect from the location it is not cheap, but then I would say that you get what you pay for on this front so I think they can justify the high end pricing, though there are medium priced options avaliable, the menu is on their website.

The standard of food we had was high. I had artichoke soup (which was amazing) and fish and chips which was good though not as amazing, for fish and chips I prefer a slightly larger portion. However my girlfriend had mac & cheese to start and then moules-frites, and the portion of mussels was so enormous that it could easily have been a sharer. They were fantastically fresh and I had my fill of those so overall I really couldn't complain. We ended up being so full that we couldn't manage any desert.

The service was super, and they had no qualms accepting our offer which while not essential did help take the sting out of the price. Overall from our experience I'd thoroughly recommend the place.

- The atmosphere: realexed vibe in a very small restaurant - I don't reckon it can sit more than 35 people at once - with simple, wooden decoration. The only 'fancy' and original element here is the potted cabbage you can find on the window sills and every table.

- The dessert cocktails: YUM! For a decent (jokes) £14, you can get an amazing custard cocktail as a dessert. Not for those who can't take anything too heavy both in terms of fat and booziness but if you're a fat hoover such as I am, you'll probably love it.

- The food: the menu is made of classic dishes you'd find in any pub, only a bit higher quality.

- The service: every waiter and waitress is lovely and helpful. We haven't had to touch the bottle of wine a single because some dude was discretely coming behing me and refilling our glasses for us. I'm clearly not used to this type of luxury so felt I was really treating myself.


- The price: oooooh Nelly, it's expensive! I've already mentioned the cocktail but seriously, everything was way overpriced. £17 for a burger... Err, totally unjustifiable. And don't even get me started on the £4.50 bottle of water. Plain outrageous.


Ahhhh the good old Mews! To say I'm a regular here is an understatement!

I practically live here lol . though that's nothing to be proud of, I can give you the best cocktail recommendations as I've had them all! They now have two venues. The upstairs menu is the best as it has the largest variety and some of the tastiest cocktails I've had! I highly recommend the English garden which is champagne based and the new bond girl! Oooooo lala .

I've spent countless evenings here and when the clock strikes 9 a DJ plays tunes downstairs.

Though the downstairs is not a beautiful as upstairs its where all the action takes place! Men in suits loose their inhibitions on the dance floor and the bottles of veuve just seem to flow! The menu downstairs isn't as good so stick to champagne. Yes they're not cheap but its a great night! £15-17 per cocktail

Love this place hidden in a small muse in the hear of busy London! The bar offers classic cocktails in a comfy atmosphere. A must go to place before diner in London.

Need to add another comment for this place...I enjoyed a lazy hot Sunday afternoon on their terrace and tried for the first time their red berry smoothie which was delicious. This is really a nice and cosy place to relax and cool off some the heat in London.

Really enjoyed the food and atmosphere at this tucked away and hidden hole in the wall. I was quite surprised that all the diners appeared to be male, but that could have just been due to the close location to Piccadilly / St James' / Green Park. The food was great and such generous portions. It had a really warm, old English and cosy atmosphere and the staff were amazing. So kind, thoughtful and attentive. We all ordered different things off the a la carte menu, and I was particularly impressed with the fish and chips. I would definitely go back.

With so many restaurants in London it's a good sign when you've been to one at least 5 times. That is the case with the Mews for me. Love the atmosphere and as you can sit inside or out, it also feels like two very different places. The menus is outstanding and so varied. You can add lobster to pretty much anything including the burger and the mac and cheese. The lane-way has a very Euro vibe with the candles and lights so sitting out here enjoying your meal and a drink is the perfect night. 


The atmosphere of the downstairs bar is nice, it feels modern, stylish, but not over the top so that it is still relaxed.

The brasserie upstairs is a bit more rustic, but beautifully done. The warm light and the wooden tables give it a cosy atmosphere.

We had a Time Out voucher, for 3 course set menu, with a glass of champagne.

The champagne we had was Pommery and had a good drinking temperature. The staff in the bar and the brasserie were remarkably friendly and courteous however, service was a bit slow unfortunately, which I think was mainly down to the kitchen. It took quite a while for each of our courses to arrive.

The presentation of the food was great, however the flavours we’re a bit disappointing.

My starter, smoked duck with burnt chicory, hazelnuts and cherries was okay, but not a revelation. The main course was pea and shall ravioli with crushed peas and basil, which was only lukewarm and the ravioli seemed slightly undercooked. Finally the dessert was for me the biggest disappointment: iced fruits of the forest with hot white chocolate. This appeared to be simply frozen mixed berries with a sprinkle of white chocolate. The chocolate was cold and rock solid and the berry mix way to sour to have a please taste.

Given the nice atmosphere and the friendly staff, I would probably give Mews of Mayfair another chance, and order from their a la card menu, which sounds quite nice.

Great food, great atmosphere.  Perfect for a girly lunch, a date, or dinner with the boys.  Down to earth staff, affordable food, and a really great venue.
