    I visited the new Mash Bar in Covent Garden as I've been a fan of the Edinburgh branch for years. I am DELIGHTED that it is now in London and would encourage everyone to go along! The food is delicious every time and the staff are friendly and helpful. I always go for the veggie haggis and would highly recommend. All the best in London team Makars :)

    We went to the original Makars in Edinburgh and were looking forward to this new one in London. We made a reservation for 6 and was greeted warmly. The server explained the menu clearly as I was looking forward to the lamb shank and it did not disappoint. We realised that we wanted more gravy so we requested for more. Our server quickly got us more making the experience more welcoming. Overall, I enjoyed it and would recommend anyone to have their first try in this restaurant.

    This is the best of Scottish food in London! Just as great as their Edinburgh restaurant. Most delicious haggis with gorgeous mash and gravy to die for. Very special. We loved it. Lovely atmosphere with attentive staff. If you want a magical taste of Scotland or you just love sausages and yummy desserts at a great price this is for you!

    Have visited Makars Edinburgh so was interested to see if the high standards were replicated in London. They didn’t disappoint, the food, service and location were all amazing. My daughter even got a special Happy Birthday dessert. Highly recommend! Can’t wait to return.

    Absolutely fantastic. A great find. Small independent gem of a place in London. English/Scottish meat and mash. Veggie and child options too. Service was attentive and very friendly. Ambience was spot on. Food was delicious. Totally worth a visit. We will return.

    The food was made from high quality ingredients. It was first time we have tried Scottish food and we loved it! The service was friendly and the food came to our table quickly. The prices are very reasonable. We will surely come again.

    Fantastic veggie options, as well as meat. I opted for the veggie haggis with cheese and chive mash and it didn’t disappoint. Just as good as the one in Edinburgh - 5 stars!

    Really good food, there was x5 of us, a vegan, a vegetarian, a gluten free and 2 others. That's quite a tall order of various diets to please, and they did! We were all delighted to go here, every meal was delicious. Lovely staff, friendly and helpful. Very clean loo. Would definitely return, thanks 😊

    Loved the veggies haggis (good to know where to get haggis in London !) and the peppercorn sauce goes really well with the cheesy mash. Staff were attentive, welcoming and gave good recommendations. My friend loved the gluten free choices and the sticky toffee pudding was a hit ! Thank you for a great evening.

    Having visited the restaurant in Edinburgh, it was not surprising to have such a good time with their brand new team in London. The food, the service and the atmosphere are just as good as they are up in Scotland !

    Restaurant was very quiet, so had a seat by the window. The food - we both had the chicken with cheese and chive mash - was delicious. We also had some gorgeous puddings including the Ice 'n' Dirty - although the apple crumble would have been slightly better with custard, which was not available. Service was very friendly, too. Welcome to London, Makars!
