Our group of four went on Sunday evening hoping for Jambalaya or steak and unfortunately they were out of both. Our second choices turned out to be very tasty, pork, chili and chicken fajitas. The pitcher of margaritas was enough for two drinks for each of us. The desserts were overpriced and disappointing so find another place to end your... More

As a musician travelling to many clubs in Britain it was a real pleasure to come to Mama Liz's and find not only a terrific venue downstairs in the Voodoo Lounge, but also a restaurant upstairs serving really tasty food. When I said I was vegan I was told it was no problem and was served a delicious totally vegan... More

Recently attended their first quiz night. Unfortunately for us, we were the only team there. However we split up into two teams of two and played anyway, which was brilliantly accommodating of the staff and quiz master! We had the Jambalaya and Gumbo, which we're both excellent meals. The staff were super friendly and I'd say the pricing was more... More

Large, raw, late night drinking venue. The place in Stamford you're most likely to hang with the hipster crowd. Best in the summer when the terrace, and everywhere else for that matter, is packed. They used to have comedy nights down in the basement which were superb. Food is bit hit or miss but not surprising as this venue tries... More

Hello Thanks for your review. Re the comedy night, we would just point out that we still do that, and since winning the Midlands Best Comedy Club award in a public vote in 2016 we have had to up it to twice monthly due to demand and the standard of comics we enjoy. It, and details of all our upcoming... More

Great place to meet, eat and listen to the music. Various rooms with different functions - bar, restaurant and Voodoo lounge with live music. Great menu if you you are into Deep South food, with other specialities, all fairly priced. Good selection of beers, wines and cocktails. Helpful, polite staff. Atmospheric venue in an old ?warehouse with outside seating. Council... More

Love the alternative feel of the place (important in conservative Stamford), very tasty food and great range of drinks.

It started off well enough with a lovely room upstairs for the cocktail demonstration, but steadily went downhill. The bartender lost control a bit telling one of our party who was a bit too enthusiastic pouring her shots to " poison yourself on that stuff if you like " , then serving a Pernod drink to one of the girls...

Beer and a buger+fries £10 even. Really enjoyed the environment, lots of beer selection. Solid menu, outdoor seating which is nice depending on the season of course. Also dance floor downstairs for weekends.

A unusual building with a wonderful two tier outside area. Beautiful in the summer evenings. Inside are three floors with bars, restaurant and music lounge. A fun place to eat and drink. Something very different to the rest of the bars/restaurants in Stamford. Food was really lovely. All "soul food" and really tasty.
