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.

Great service and amazing food in such a good location! Keep room for the sticky toffee pudding - the best I have ever had (and I've had ALOT!).. 100% would recommend!

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.

I go to Mother Mash everytime I travel to London, this thrusday I was with some english friends and they LOVED it.
The personnel is extra nice, the local food is amazing and the pie we had as dessert was something out of this world.
I totally recommend it!!

Lovely place with lovely food and service. Pies, mash and gravy were all delicious and really well priced! Not 5 stars as they could have done with one more waiting staff on a busy Thursday.

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.

Came here as a last minute gathering with a few friends with the criteria of 'British' & 'cheap'. This place definitely did not disappoint! All my friend's approved with so many options of mash, pie, sausages and gravy! Would come here again!

Generally I find the friendliness of customer service in London to be colder and more blunt than Canada or US, which has a more of a customer is always right approach. In that regard Mother Mash is about on par with the most of the restaurants that I have been so far in London. The service itself (following up on empty drinks, taking away plates and getting food to the table on time ) was good. Food was amazing. I would highly recommend.

I went to Mother Mash with a friend on Saturday evening for a quick dinner. The food was homely and the portion sizes were decent. The only thing we were a little unimpressed with was the service (or lack of). The waitresses were a little rude and not very attentive. Also- a bin in the middle of the restaurant? seemed a little unhygienic!

Some staff were friendly but the girl serving me wasn't, I really picked up on a "I would rather be anywhere else" vibe. The food was okay but everything was laden with black pepper, the mash, cabbage and pie was far too peppery and I had to ask three times for a glass of water. Wouldn't rate this place at all, I felt ignored and the food was below average which is a real shame as I was so looking forward to it.

Looking for a quick bite with some mashed potatoes and pie, here is the place. For foreigners, it would be a great occasion to taste British local food. The service was very nice and efficient. We came on a family lunch and they were great with her. My husband had a gluten free meal so he was very pleased although they did have any gluten free desert (yet?). Since I was pregnant, I really liked the ginger ale drink, very tasty. It is a tiny place so it's better to book in advance a table which we did.
