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.

Had a bite to eat before going to the theatre, the restaurant it's self was small and a bit cramped. It was clean and tidy. The staff were ok, seemed very rushed and didn't have much time for you as a customer. The food was hit and miss, the pies we had were underwhelming and felt like that had been cooked and stood for sometime. The mash was very nice but thought the gravy could have packed more of a punch. We ordered a side and never received it and no apology was made. The crumble we had for pudding was disappointing, felt like it had been deconstructed. I'm afraid I would not pop in again.

Excellent pie and mash at Mother Mash on Saturday 6th April. The staff were courteous and efficient, even when they had a large group booking which arrived about 5 minutes after us.

The food was excellent, hot and very tasty. Cost was £34.00 for 2 x Pie and Mash and 2 side orders of peas, one glass of red wine and one beer in Soho - can't go wrong.

Make sure you book beforehand, because there were many people turned away because they just simply couldn't be accommodated.

There was no hardly anyone in there but felt the girl who was serving us was rushing us. However overall it’s a good filling meal and good value for money. I would go again.

The restaurant cancelled twenty minutes before my reservation which meant I didn’t have time to find another restaurant in the area before seeing a show.

Very disappointing and they didn’t even offer an apology.

We visited for Sunday lunch. The menu has a good range of pies, sausages and mash. The service was very fast, which I guess meant that the food is not individually cooked. The bench seating was not very comfortable - there was not much gap between the bench and the table and they were very hard, high and upright. As the service was fast, we didn't have to sit on them for very long! The restaurant wasn't quite what I expected, as it was very tiny. I had also expected the food to be super delicious, but was slightly disappointed. It was nice, but nothing exceptional. I would eat here again, but I might try some other restaurants first.

Excellent pie/sausage and mash in the heart of London. I really liked that we got a choice of mash, pie/sausage and gravy. Service and friendly and efficient. The price was very reasonable by London standards.

I love Mother Mash! I bring visitors from the States here all the time whenever they ask for British food. The food comes out quickly, which is great because I'm always hungry the minute I walk in.

Food is easy to pick, the specials are clearly stated.
The service from one waitress was less than expected, seemed like we were a chore, which has not been my experience before.
Food as always was lovely and good value.
The restaurant has a good turn over but I could tell they wanted our table as they got busier.
Overall would recommend to all A great place to visit.

Absolutely fabulous gem of a place. Just off Carnaby Street in London, this unassuming restaurant offers a no thrills mash+sausage/pie+gravy experience. No more, no less. There are few specials and if you have room for a pud, try the crumble. Beer or Cider in bottles (wine by the glass). Dining in booths and the place fills quickly (but quieter after 9pm). Not my first time and wont be my last.

NOT RECOMMENDED! Overbooked. No table at arrival. Got sent away for 15 minutes and when we came back asked to wait another 20 minutes.

They overbook the restaurant on purpose and the staff didn’t care much!

There’s plenty of better restaurants in Soho - just a shame as my parents wanted to eat something truly British.

The food quality was really disappointing and didn’t make for an enjoyable meal. I never ask for food to go back to the kitchen except in this case. Positive experience with the staff who were happy to changeover food, even then things didn’t get better!

Not worthy of complaining but I wouldn’t recommend MM for a nice meal.

Not a place to linger over a leisurely lunch but more of a fuel stop with good food and service. does what it says on the tin ! serves great mash and pies and the only trouble is we were too full up to have desert!
Good value and would thoroughly recommend. Great location too as we looked round Carnaby Street and Liberty afterwards.

Was SO looking forward to eating at MotherMash after a friend had recommended it. Sadly though the pie and mash was luke warm and rather salty and the apple crumble and custard was good but didn’t have the homemade taste and crunch I was hoping for.

The staff were helpful and did get me another pie and mash and that was fractionally hotter but still not the piping hot pie and mash I was hoping for.

I will probably go back and give them another try as I love good pie and mash but please please can we have it served nice and hot and a bit less salty?

If you love a good old banger and mash then you have to come to Mother Mash. Probably the only thing that could improve is three sausages instead of two. Other than that, it was just lovely. I will for sure return in the future.

Food arrived cold and got reheated in the microwave. The sausages were tiny and desiccated. There was rubbish being stored under the seats. It was filthy dirty and a look in the kitchen confirmed my fears. Horrible.

Great food unfortunately let down by miserable service, we sat at the front but should have sat at the back as very small restaurant. Constant activity, bottles were stored under my seat, where the waitress kept refilling bar from, bags of rubbish being taken out so had to lean right over to avoid them and being near the entrance customers also waiting whilst waiting to be seated.
