Great food. Attentive service but not pushy. Lovely place for dinner - book a couple of days in advance and ask for a table on the veranda on the 1st floor overlooking the street.

SBSevenoaks, it seems you have discovered the best seat in the house! Our balcony tables are the perfect spot for taking in the quiet Second Street bustle. We hope to welcome you again soon to The Mews! More

This is a very enjoyable place to eat in the evenings. If possible get a table on the balcony which overlooks the street as it has activity and a feel of old New Orleans. Food and wine are very good although perhaps not quite up to Tides which is much more expensive.I like it that the owner and chef may... More
