About Old Mary's

Tucked away in the cellars of a Grade II listed Georgian building, Old Mary's is West London's best kept secret.

“Think Dickensian, underground dram shop with undertones of decadence infused with psychoactive alkaloids derived from none other than The Devil’s Root itself………and you’ll be halfway there.”
- Relic Interiors London

Walking through the sinuous wine-cellar tunnels and past the candle-lit dinning room, the hustle and bustle of London is a world away.

Perfect for intimate gatherings and wild parties alike, Old Mary's is a unique space for unique events.

Alongside our weekly jazz sets and monthly comedy evenings, we offer a wide selection of classic and experimental cocktails. Our staff is friendly and well versed in the art of the cocktail, feel free to make a request if your favourites aren't on the menu.

If you ask nicely, you may even hear a ghost story...

    Great quirky space, very accessible via public transport. Drinks were great and staff were very helpful and bubbly. I arrived a couple of hours early to set up and the team were very accommodating with my AV needs! I would host a party here again in a heartbeat.

    Head bar tender was a bit late to setup which cost me about 30 mins where I could get things going. I did let them know what time I’d arrive and the other crew member assisting me didn’t know how to set up a few things so we were just waiting for some time to get moving.

    Super friendly waitress, great ambiance, nice food & a decent selection of beers, would definitely recommend!

    Nothing really, when I’d pre ordered the food is name next to each Christmas feast hoping maybe this meant they’d know who was having What by calling the name out, unfortunately wasn’t the case so things got a little confusing but only a minor detail!

    The venue was lovely, the pictures don't do it justice as to how nice it is in the evening time. The candles were all lit which made for a very ambient atmosphere. The staff were incredibly attentive and friendly. I would definitely recommend this venue!

    The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. The room itself is also very atmospheric and the cocktails are delicious.

    Unfortunately on the night I had reserved the speakers in the room weren't working. The bar staff were really helpful in setting up alternatives, but the usual speakers would have been better.

    We booked the venue for our cricket club AGM and it turned out to be the perfect place for it! The Scullery was a comfortable and very private space to accommodate the meeting for the twenty or so of us. The Mitre pub upstairs is a lovely old fashioned English pub serving great ales and the cocktail bar downstairs looks cracking too, although it was closed on the evening we were there. All staff looking after us were brilliant, the food served (bar snack menu) was delicious. Great evening! We will be back! The Stage Cricket Club

    Nothing. All facilities and the ambience were excellent.

    The venue is very atmospheric, and it was perfect for our needs. It is private, with it own entrance, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious too.

    It is a basement/cellar, so not much natural light. (Maybe there's access to a garden in the summer?) The fireplace is magnificent, with lots of candles, but it would have been nice to have had a log fire.

    4.3 Booked Scullery for Pub event for 25 guests

    1. Reasonably-sized space for a party of my size
    2. Good atmosphere
    3. Reasonably-priced drinks

    1. Upon arrival, one of the reserved tables was occupied by other customers. I didn't know this was one of my tables at first, until someone noticed that they had hidden the reservation signs behind the menus. After briefly remonstrating with them, they vacated the table, but this is something the staff should have ensured upon our arrival.

    2. Some birthday cards were left behind at the end of the evening. When I called the next day to see if they could be retrieved, I was informed that they hadn't been saved during the clear-up. I find this slightly disappointing, as the venue would have had my contact details from my booking, and as these were clearly birthday cards it should have been assumed that these items had a sentimental value.

    Hired this for a specific event, but despite arranging everything with the manager, one of the staff rudely interrupted the event and publicly complained that we where not spending enough money and maybe we should leave. which was unacceptable!

    Amazing venue! We booked The Scullery for a birthday/work milestone party. The room itself is lovely, it has its own sound system and air conditioning, and we were also able to decorate it and move the tables around to create space for dancing. The staff could not have been more wonderful or accommodating, letting us in early to decorate, helping us to tend to the sound system through the night and also creating a delicious vegan option for the buffet menu upon request. Great cocktails too! Thank you so much for a really brilliant night.

    The only things which would have made this even better would have been longer opening hours as we were not all ready for the party to end at midnight. Also the option for a DJ would have been great too though we had a great time without due to the ability to play our own music anyway.

    At one point the staff seemed understaffed as there was a huge build up at the bar and waiting times became very long however once the business died down it was fine.

    Nice venue with candles and a fireplace. It had its own entrance and one of the staff was incredibly kind and helpful, lending us his laptop so we could show a slide show. He also let me store things safely in the office. We were also able to decorate (although we were told we could decorate from 10am so showed up in the afternoon to find out the guy who told me this was wrong as I had to wait until 5.30pm)

    There was no music! It broke the day before and they didn't bother to tell me until 30 minutes before the party. They tried to fix it with sellotape but it kind of ruined the atmosphere and kept breaking. When I asked someone to fix it they didn't come back and told me it was up to me to chase! One of the staff member's was incredibly rude. When there was an issue, instead of talking to me he snatched drinks from the guests and stormed off. The drinks were very overpriced. Yes, £100 is a cheap deal for venue hire but £35 a bottle of prosecco is way above normal and a 900% mark up.

    Had to leave the room at 10.30pm but no worries though really as we just went downstairs to carry on the drinking :).
