January 2013 – Sophisticated bar, basement lounge, restaurant, private dining and specialist wine boutique Mews of Mayfair – a hidden gem set down one of the neighbourhood's distinctive cobbled lanes - opens their new first floor British Brasserie.
Following a full refurbishment and arrival of new Chef Richard Sawyer (previously Executive Chef of renowned British restaurant Rules, London), the new menu showcases some favourite traditional dishes using the best of British ingredients.
The delicious fare is served in relaxed surroundings with a British stamp; rustic glazed plates & cups have been sourced from the South West's award-winning Imagine Pottery, while dynamic new sustainable company Rough Stuff are suppliers of the restaurant's English Oak for the tables and flooring, and linens and worn leather chairs are from local businesses.

Notes to Editors:
Founder of Mews of Mayfair, James Robson, launched the venture in 2006. It soon became one of London's busiest and most popular eating and drinking haunts, hosting events & dinners for guests from Sir Elton John and Alicia Keys to Joanna Lumley. Keeping ahead of the curve, James felt the market was changing and decided to update the restaurant to give Londoners a new take on the ‘Best of British' without any pomp.
