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.

If you love pie, mash and gravy, or sausages, mash and gravy, then this is the place for you. Generous portions and very tasty. Reasonably priced and simple yet pleasant environmental.
Highly recommend and we will return!

The food is amazing with great pies, lots of choice and the gravy is gorgeous. The staff are bubbly and attentive. They are however, very, very stingy on the drinks. You pay full pint prices but they are served in a 2/3 pint glass. Never seen this before. Come on guys serve pints. The wine glasses were similarly small.

We had a very friendly greeting on arrival. She took time to make us comfortable explaining the measures they take to keep us safe. It was lovely to have service with a smile. The food is fantastic, with great portions that make you feel you've had a good hearty meal. There is a very good choice that is tasty. I really enjoyed the cider. I would fully recommend anyone to visit and we will be back soon.

First time at Mother Mash, lovely waitress was very attentive and very sweet. Food was good, old fashioned pie & mash or a Posh pie, whatever floats your boat. Big portions. Good value. Will be going back. Julie

So I had two dinners there and finished both! Their food is amazing! I would definitely go back again and I’ll take a friend with me next time! Also £10 for a big pie, a good portion of mash and lots of gravy! Also you get to choose from different mashes and gravies and they have good quality produce. Also the ladies that work there are lovely and friendly. Could not say anything bad about my experience there.

The menu choices were fab, the mash and gravy and veggies were all absolutely delish. I’d go back just for the sides (cauliflower cheese, green beans and bacon, and mash and gravy!)
Sadly the sausages were disappointing - the Cumberland one had a strange almost liver like aftertaste and the chilli one tasted more like a chorizo. Service was great and the place was quiet on a Monday night.

Great food, great service. They’ve obviously put effort into Covid-19 measures and the ability to track people.

Highly recommended.

This place offers amazing pies at a great price point. Been here many times and brought many friends, and we all agree that this is the best pie and mash you can get in London without breaking the bank. Outdoor seating is a plus as well. The only downside is that the variety of pies now seems to be less than before, with limited options for those who don’t eat red meat. There are only two vegetarian options on the menu and sometimes at busy moments there is only one that is still left. That might pose problems for companies with vegetarians or people with allergies. Otherwise, this place is great.

Excellent service, great value for money, & very attentive staff. Food is fabulous to boot. There aren’t many tables, as it’s a fairly small establishment, so booking could be advised. But overall, I thoroughly recommend this place.

My new favourite restaurant. Waitress was incredibly nice and the food was SPOT ON, and I usually find it hard to find good vegan options.

Mother Mash is the essence of "do few things very well." One of those things is dessert, be sure to save room.

Also, when reserving on open table be sure to give plenty of lead time. We attempted to book about an hour before our arrival and they had not yet been able to confirm by the time we got there. We got lucky that someone had canceled, so we were seated immediately, but the staff recommends 2-4 hours. Book early (and often).

Absolutely loved the food. The service however would put me off returning. Staff were quite rude and talking to each other and made you feel like they wanted you out ASAP. Which is a pity because otherwise it would be outstanding.

The food was tasty and good value. We had meat pies and they were excellent. The service was friendly and the ambience was pleasant. The only issue was that the seating isn't particularly comfortable. We would have no hesitation going back.

We ate at Mother Mash on a Friday lunchtime and taking the advice of other reviewers, made sure that we booked a table in advance. When we arrived it was not too busy but it certainly filled to capacity, soon after. Others have commented on the service not being the best but our experience was very positive. We received a friendly greeting and were quickly shown to our table. The service was very efficient and the staff were extremely helpful. The pies, mash and gravy were excellent; really tasty comfort food. Drinks were good, too. Compared to the price of having pie and mash in a pub, it was not bad value, either. I would happily return and would not hesitate to recommend.
