I love the Mews during the summer, with its quaint cobbled street and the constant buzz from the people enjoying their food and drinks on the small tables that line it. Above all this is Mayfair Pizza & Co.


Up a small staircase to the first floor is an unexpected surprise - a huge high ceilinged room which is light, spacious and nicely furnished. The huge windows and glass ceiling allow plenty of light in and the pleasant buzz from people below makes for a lovely atmosphere even when mostly empty (we were eating early due to the theatre at 7pm). 

The staff were very friendly and sat us down with our menus straight away. Unfortunately we weren't offered water (it was such a hot day and a little stuffy in the restaurant) and when it was brought over on request it was luke warm so we had to ask for ice (twice). 

As the name suggests this place is allll about pizza and situated in the corner is a massive pizza oven. I didn't fancy pizza so went for their superfoods salad with halloumi but my friend went for the smoky chicken and rocket pizza. We ordered a starter to share; the truffle and mushroom arancini which at £5 for 3 is good value. They have a delicious consistency and the creamy mushroomy truffly flavour is goooood. My main was good with really tasty deep fried halloumi however some of the leaves were a bit wet and there wasn't enough pomegranate, avocado, cauli and beetroot. The pizza was a real let down with a very soggy middle and small bits of chicken that didn't taste smoky at all but tasted like value sandwich chicken. It was piled high with rocket but no other flavour. As a pizza place they should have this down to a tea so this was a real shame. 

Instead of wine we went for cocktails; Aperol spritz at £6 was great value and the lemon gin fizz was refreshing but a bit sweet. The wine is quite pricey and only one or two are served by the glass. They also serve a carafe which is good if you don't fancy a whole bottle. When I say pricey I meant reasonably pricey however they also have some absolutely ridiculous vintages that cost up to a grand! 

We were running late so asked them to rush our dessert and bring the bill which they efficiently did. We ordered a strawberry cheesecake to share with basil ice cream side. The ice cream was sooo refreshing but the cheesecake tasted shop bought with a funny texture and a horrid jelly top. 

There are some great things about this place - service, atmosphere - but the food didn't live up to my expectations especially considering the cost! They also hold pizza classes but I definitely wouldn't be back for this!

Tucked away, almost hidden from sight, is this lovely little pizza place, bathed in natural sunlight. Now it's not very often that I'm willing to offer up 5 stars for pizza (being the connoisseur that I am), but this one HAS to have them, and here's why... 


As soon as I walked in, I was greeted by the front of house, who was incredibly polite, and shown to my table. There has been a pizza making class earlier that day in the area I was sat in, and the staff couldn't apologise enough that they were still clearing up - there wasn't even that much mess!


Perusing through the menu, the Mayfair Pizza Co, Truffle & Porcini Mushroom pizza immediately caught my eye. It was the most expensive pizza on the menu (naturally) but was still a very reasonable £14. Wine, however, was not as reasonable - a 175ml glass sets you back about £7. I wasn't planning on drinking anyway though, so settled for a glass of lemonade at £2.50. They're not stingy on the soft drinks, it came in a lovely large glass.


The moment had arrived, the pizza was being presented to me, and boy was I not disappointed. As a meat eater, it takes a lot for me to be impressed by a veggie option, but the combination of the thickly cut mushrooms with the creamy mozzarella and garlicky truffle base meant I wasn't craving a box of chicken wings on the way home at all! 


Having booked in advance, I wouldn't know how lucky you'd be grabbing a table if you were just walking in, but you may be okay. I'd recommend trying to book in advance if you can though. We arrived at 7pm and there were only a few tables available, but these filled up very quickly.

Lovely venue.  Decent pizza - if you want an upmarket pizza and don't want to pay too much, this is the place to go.  There are great bar options on the Mews below if you fancy a drink beforehand too.
