Rude Staff. No atmosphere. Happy Hour is an absolute con as they didn't have the ingredients for half of the cocktails on the menu. Very Disappointing in my opinion. Wont be going back. Visited Mary Janes on 2016-07-29

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The karaoke room is quite small and the choice of songs isn't amazing, they also probably need to update their machines as they don't run very well. However, the night was a lot of fun and our guests were impressed by the bar. Would go again. Visited Mary Janes on 2016-07-14

It was a perfect night. The staff was helpful, funny and understanding, always looking after us. Quite reasonably priced, great location, very nice decoration. I will definitely come again some day. Visited Mary Janes on 2016-07-15

We hosted our company 35th birthday party here, and we were totally blown away. From the booking stages right through to the end of the event, Roberta, Dan, and their team were an absolute pleasure to work with. The food was delicious, and the cocktails were some of the best we've tasted. We'll definitely be back soon!

Book an area for my birthday, the bar was great really cool all my girlfriends loved the vibe. Preordered food was very good and generous size. Drinks were reasonable too. Service at the bar was a bit slow, but it was very busy, staff were very friendly. Will definitely return in the future, somewhere a bit different and fun. Visited Mary Janes on 2016-03-31

The area we booked was great for us but I did feel sorry for two couples who had been sat on the edge of our area and were trying to have a quiet meal. The pre-ordered food was great value and there was plenty of it. The only disappointment was that in the karaoke room there were no dressing up props as advertised on the website "Fancy dress accessories are provided, just in case you think an inflatable guitar or rocker wig will enhance your performance." It was still great fun though and I would recommend it for any kind of get together. Visited Mary Janes on 2016-03-17

Very disappointing. Pre-ordered food and drink both of which were late. Staff were rude. "Private" area was not private. *Comment being moderated* Will never be coming here again!

I usually love Mary Janes but me and my group felt completely ripped off on this occasion. All month they advertised 'Janeuary' deals 'throughout January'. We go there on 28th Jan to be told they aren't doing the offer platters or the offer drinks as they've stopped the promotion (even though it was still on their website!). This took the edge off what was meant to be a great night. A shame as for the sake of a few quid they've probably lost the custom of around 25 of us. Poor.

Having booked an area to accommodate approx 18 people for Christmas drinks only, I can't say I was disappointed. We all had a great time. When ordering cocktails the service was a little slow but it was a very busy night and they were worth waiting for. Great music choices too, I'm sure we'll be back. Visited Mary Janes on 2015-12-16

I booked an area here for client drinks, approx 20 people. I booked this in advanced and explained that we would be ordering food on the night as there is always possibility people will drop out of these events, i was told this was fine we could pre-order but didn't have to. When we arrived our table was in a good spot near the bar, i then went to the bar and ordered drinks for the table ahead of our guests arriving, buckets of beer wine etc, the bar was very under staffed so we was queuing for a long time, then when i went to order food i was told that we was not able to and the kitchen was closed only for pre orders, when i explained the email correspondence the bar man went to ask someone else, a very rude lady come out to us who was blunt and gave us one option for food, i then just ordered this as i didn't want the hassle with our guests arriving any minute, the rudeness of the staff was very disappointing seeing as we had booked in advanced and with a lot of guests attending spending quite a bit of money in the bar, the whole evening was a struggle with getting to the bar for drinks, our table was cleared and as we was standing around it talking with our drinks on the table other people come and sat on it as our reserved sign was taken and when we explained it was reserved for us and all our bags etc where on the chairs we had a rude response and they wouldn't move. All in all a very disappointing experience and i definatily wont be returning for future events Visited Mary Janes on 2015-12-16

Arranged a work party here and overall OK but nowhere during the booking was I told that it was over 21 and everyone needed ID, including my 40 yr old colleague! I know bars need to be careful but they should also be allowed to use common sense. When we got in the area we had booked for 20 people was a serious squeeze and another area was booked next to us where they kept having to push through our group to get to the bar. Overall OK but wouldn't rush back

Went for a mid-week lunch, the food was nice but the service was pretty awful... We had to ask soemone to take our drinks order and had to ask again for someone to take our food order. A burger and club sandwich took 45 minutes to arrive and we had to chase them for that. It was a shame as its a nice looking place... Would have to think twice about going back for food as need more than 1 hour for lunch... Visited Mary Janes on 2015-09-24

And no one from Mary Jane's has bothered to contact me to apologise! After reading this! Joke! I was at least expecting a comment below, like the other bad reviews got??? ..............

If you were able to contact me directly - sam@mintgroup.co.uk - I can take the next steps in order to start this process..Please accept my apologies in the meantime and rest-assured, this is absolutely a priority. (On a separate note - lovely to read your comments regarding the food - really appreciate you taking the time to include). Hope to hear from you - Sam.

Would not recommend Mary Jane's! Young lady that worked there was rude, we were moved from our table early for someone else..even tho I booked it weeks before. Then we were informed last minute that there would be no waitress service while we were in our karaoke room! So we all had to keep leaving to go to a busy bar! And lost out on singing time and at £45 an hour we were not happy. But can't fault the food, it was amazing!!! Will not be returning!!!

Fantastic place, Karaoke was great fun, staff were attentive and helpful and the burgers were amazing and served promptly. All round great place for a night out with friends/colleagues. Wouldn't recommend it for romantic evening though.

Lunch for two on Friday afternoon, were given a table right by the window, good food, even better service by a Spanish lady. it was nice to experience MJ as the timing was perfect. very quiet, and calm before the storm when it turns into a almost a night club on a Friday evening

Booked a table for seven to eat and have a drink after..was placed right next to a packed bar on a tiny table ..not the ideal date night!.. the platters we ordered were very average .it was like party food from Iceland!.. not at all what I was expecting at all. The venue looks lovely if you are solely going out for a drink but would never eat here again .

Reply from Mary Janes

Thanks for taking the time to feedback to us and am glad that you consider us lovely! Would love to find out a little more about your experience – from a booking process perspective AND to garner further information regarding the platters ordered. Our food is all homemade fresh on the premises to the highest standard- so am very keen to find out how we could have got it so wrong on this occasion..Would love to talk directly – please email me: sam@mintgroup.co.uk as would love the chance to make amends. Hope to hear from you…

Door staff were friendly and we were greeted with a smile. My Decadence burger was excellent (only let down by the fact I didn't get the chance to request it medium or even rare). Service was hideous though. We were an advance-booked party of 19 but no table service. We were left to wait for ages at the bar. I appreciated that the bar attendant who served me was busy, so when she eventually asked what I wanted, I delivered my order quickly and concisely and politely. She ignored my words, served the 2 guys next to me, then another couple of people at the other end of the bar, then asked again if I was ready to order. Some of my party gave up on food and went to local takeaways instead, such was the wait. It appears that I was lucky to get my order in so "quickly". It might've made sense for someone to take our orders together as I informed the staff that we'd all be eating weeks ahead. Again, the burger was lovely and I LOVE the fact that they serve Wray & Nephew but I won't be braving that service again.

Thanks for taking the time to feedback to us and great to hear that you enjoyed your burger! Remarks regarding service however, make for horrible reading. Am so sorry to have disappointed you on this visit – a far cry from our usual high standards… Would be great to address the points made in “person” - should you feel comfortable emailing me (sam@mintgroup.co.uk) would love the opportunity to make amends. Hope to hear from you!

It is a really good place to visit - decent music, nice food and happy hour always helps. I booked two tables here for a work event, for around 20 of us, and the whole booking process was made very easy. Even with a few friends, I would come here again.

I booked a spot for 20 people for my birthday on a Friday evening and the reservation process was incredibly easy, even when i amended my booking. We had alot of staggered arrivals, and by the end there was about 35+ of us. A lot of whom ordered food as well as drinks. The staff were great, and incredibly competent at serving great cocktails and food as well as being helpful in nearly every other aspect. The door staff made sure that all my party were safe and just added to the good time. They helped us move our coats when the bar was closing, as well as taking care of one or two people who were drinking too much. The bar itself looked great, and the music was good. All in all, I recommend this place purely because of the great experience the staff provide, an excellent happy hour and an enjoyable atmosphere. One of my new favourite bars for sure.

Super place, great for a group. I hire a booth for 15 people, we ordered some finger food and it was delivered promptly and was delicious. The whole reservation process was painless and simply and no silly minimum spends etc. All good!!

We booked a party of 25 for our Christmas party, very well organised, food hot and really good, staff were great and very helpful, a fantastic night and a great venue.....great atmosphere and all my party were highly complimentary of the whole experience.....Thank you for a great festive night out as its not an easy task dealing with large party numbers

Ideal festive Christmas work venue! We went as a group of 6 and had a fun and a really enjoyable evening. The food was good and there was never to much of a queue to get a drink. he staff were friendly and the music was consistent. the only slight down side was the size of our seating area. We were squeezed only a 4 people booth which was rather cramped, especially when eating. Other than that a good night had by all. Thank you - we will be back!!!

Excellent service. Fabulous drinks - not just the usual 'classic' cocktails. Amazing venue. Last minute change to party size wasn't an issue and dealt with easily and efficiently. If you want to book a space where you can have a great time and get 2-4-1- cocktails this is the venue to choose.

We had a company get to together here on a Monday night. It was very quiet so it was great for us as we had a large area reserved for us and we could acutally hear each other talk. The happy is fantastic especially the 2 4 1 on cocktails. The platters I ordered were amnazing and very tasty, really good value for money. Table service was a big bonus and the waitress we had (Emma) was very pleasant and polite and very helpful.

We went on a Tuesday so it was pretty quiet, but my friends and I took full advantage of the happy hour, great for us as it had a load of beers on offer as well as cocktails. We also got massive burgers!...pulled pork, bacon, chorizo and cheese!..amazing. Stunning venue with friendly staff and would love to come back on a busier night.

Fabulous! Went to Mary Janes for the first time on a Friday night for a friend's birthday and was great. Excellent booking service which allows for pre-ordering and great service on arrival. A proper old school type happy hour and we made the most of it. Lots of variety of drinks, fantastic atmosphere and the music was right up my street. Will definitely be returning. Thanks a lot!

What an amazing night! Came here for a colleagues' farewell and had an absolute blast. Our waitress during happy hour was friendly and attentive, the platters we ordered were delicious and disappeared very quickly! The music playlist was varied and so enjoyable we just had to go downstairs for some dancing towards the end of the night! Will definitely go back and am absolutely hankering for a go at the Karoake! Thanks a mil to Mary Janes for a great send off!

All in all was an enjoyable night for a flat mates birthday, However a few things did ruin the night, mainly the fact that most of the staff were completely rude! One girl with dark brown hair and loads of tattoos had a face like a slapped arse the whole time we saw her to put it bluntly, and was completely up herself. We'd booked the Karaoke room from 7pm-9pm as a surprise for our friend's birthday, we arrived at 6:30pm and ordered food telling her that we'd take the room (which was already paid for) at about 7:15pm she then came over in front of our friend and said 'So you cant have the Karaoke room till 8pm as someone emailed and changed the booking eariler today for 8pm-10pm', obviously this completely ruined the surprise, not only that I was the one who made the booking and I DID NOT call to change the booking at any point, we asked to see this alleged email, she said she'd get the manager who never tipped up. 8pm came around and we asked where the manager was, another waitress came over and said that someone rang to change the booking not emailed, how convenient. Moving on; we finally got into the Karaoke room, the 'accessories' they mention on the website consist of two knotty old wigs and a few deflated blow up guitars, pretty grim for £45 an hour. When we went to settle up the bar tab the cost of the Karaoke hire was on the tab even though it had been taken out of my account a few days before, when we questioned this another rude male bar tender told us 'we take your card details but we never actually take the cost from you until the night' I told him that the money had in fact left my account, or at least tried to, I got about four words out before he cut me off, requesting the manager over his walkie talkie before turning away to clean some glasses without another word to us. We then noticed the cost of the room had been taken off at the bottom of the receipt to which he said 'Yes I already explained this please pay the tab' when in fact he'd said the complete opposite!! All in all very rude incompetent staff that didn't seem to have a clue as well as lying about us changing the booking which seems very very dodgy, my guess is they double booked for the first hour, all of which put me off returning there ever again.

stay safe. find something else. there's a lot better in London. You'd like this place only if you're not from London, you can get punched in your eye, pushed on the ground and kicked in the stomach from a bunch of coward Essex city boys just because you're not of their same ignorant and stupid breed. dirty toilets, rude and useless bouncers, pricey drinks with shortage of choice, trivial music with basic sound system. no one reason at all to go there.
