We love mashed potato - it's the food equivalent of a great big hug. Our mash is made with only the very best Maris Piper potatoes - and it's made fresh. Not that day, not that hour, but right before you tuck in. That way it still has the creamy fluffy texture we've whipped into it.
Add a piping hot pie, free range sausages or vegetarian option.. pour on your choice of fresh gravy.. and you'r done. Feel all warm and friendly.

Excellent meal. Really tasty sausages, mash and pies. Ginger bread pudding is amazing.
Went when they were very understaffed but waitress remained charming and helpful while under pressure.
Really good time.

Good, wholesome, tasty food with plenty of choice. For children they put together a smaller portion from the adult menu.

My partner and I are British and live in London but we wanted a proper touristy day in our own city, so after visiting the Tower of London we went to Mother Mash, and it was the perfect end to our day. We both had the Colcannon Mash, he had the London Smokey Sausages and I had the Spiced Vegetable Pie, and we had a side of the French Beans with Garlic. All of it was delicious. Really hearty, very traditional British and Irish food which was exactly what we were after. The staff were lovely and the value for money was great. We'd definitely go back again.

Chose Mother Mash for its menu, we love simple pie & mash. Not disappointed, choice of six mash types, pies or sausage and gravies. Tasty, hot and the dessert was just as good. All at a reasonable price. Would visit again.

Brilliant traditional British food. Some good vegetarian offerings and also good specials. High tables were a little uncomfortable and they ran out of some desserts sadly. Staff were great and place had a good ambience.

Simple homely cafe serving exactly what we wanted. Service was terrific. Only reason not given 5 is because there was no hot drinks served 🤷‍♀️But wouldn’t stop me dining there again

This just wasn't what I was expecting. A bit of a let down. I love mash. It wasn't anything special. Mash arrived cold. Staff were very helpful and took it back to heat it. Sausages were tasty but seemed like they were just heated rather than cooked fresh. Considering this is such a limited menu it should be a lot better.

I was really disappointed with the portion sizes. I do eat a lot but I’ve never been to a restaurant where I have had to order 2 mains to be satisfied. I had the sausage and mash. Whilst it was very tasty, the portion sizes were small for me.

Great food and service as a family dining, only downside there were 8 of us (two family of 4) and we were very tightly squeezed in a booth, which I know was the largest seating option, so I guess couldn’t be helped. But yes quite a small restaurant unfortunately for seating. Other than that everything was lovely.

Food was nice and warming but really stressful ambience- the table we sat at was right next to the till and the two people working there were really rushed off their feet and kept rushing past us and having quite loud work chat right next to our table- they also started loading the very full fridge quite loudly during our meal. Nice but not relaxing.

We had a reservation but when we arrived at the restaurant they had a sign on the door that said “closed.” Since we saw they were some diners sitting at tables we asked if there was a problem with our reservation and they said they had put the sign up because they were short staffed.

Pie or Bangers and Mash followed by Crumble and Custard, what's not to like. Mother Mash provides old school dishes like your Nan used to make and that's a good thing. Comfort food at very reasonable prices.
