Sleek and stylish, Mews of Mayfair is a hidden gem tucked away off New Bond Street. Discerning drinkers are likely to have discovered its delights, but its myriad private dining facilities remain something of a secret among those in the event booking business.
Mews of Mayfair is deceptively large meaning that in addition to the main bar and upstairs brasserie, there are also six private dining rooms spread across the four floors of this 18th-Century townhouse. The top-floor Map Room, which boasts original beams, a magnificent chandelier and walls papered with antique maps, is our favourite of the distinguished private spaces. Up to 28 guests can pull up a cream seat around the long, rectangular table in this secluded spot making it perfect for events such as smart dinners and intimate wedding receptions.
The Wine Room, as its name suggests, is particularly well-suited to wine tastings and wine pairing lunches or dinners of up to 16 guests, though its versatile wood and tan décor means it also works as a space for business meetings. The Brasserie is the largest private room at Mews of Mayfair, making it ideal for corporate events of up to 70 seated guests.
It’s not just the surroundings that are top-notch at this Mayfair hideaway – the food and drink are rather impressive too. The seasonal set menus offer plenty of choice for groups looking to dine on modern British fare, while the two different price points offer flexibility to suit different budgets. Examples of dishes you might encounter include seared south coast scallops with fennel and a blood orange dressing to start, Hebridean lamb served with roasted carrots, grilled calcot onions and nasturtium pesto or fillet and shin of beef with caramelised onion and fondant potato for mains, and strawberry pavlova for dessert. There’s also a canapé menu that caters to vegans and vegetarians for standing receptions.
