Phoned just after 1pm today (see also The Vestry). The phone rang for more than a minute without reply. As with The Vestry, have taken my business elsewhere.

Called in for lunch prior to an afternoon matinee at The Mayflower. We were fairly early at midday but the initial service was very slow and the waitress and barman seemed disorganized. Having said that, once we had been served the food and drinks arrived...More

Gusto Lounge Bar & Bistro is at the heart of Southampton's cultural centre and the gateway to the City.

If you are a visitor to the city using the busy central station, the ever popular Mayflower theatre which is home to most of the biggest west end musicals and plays or the newly opened sea city and titanic museum you will find us ideally placed.

Our lounge bar is located on the ground floor. This is a casual dining environment. The ‘All Day Menu’ is served here on a walk in only basis; so casually walk in, sit down and then order at the bar.

Our Bistro is located on our first floor; here you can enjoy a more formal dining experience. Between 5 – 7 pm, the kitchen prioritises the Bistro due to the proximity of The Mayflower, so particularly if you’re a theatre visitor, this is the place to dine.
