BOOK A TABLE

Mango Portswood, Above Bar and Ocean Village are now open. Please see the location pages for current opening times.

We hope you’ll love the new Mango Ocean Village ~ Southampton’s only Cocktail Club, serving expertly made drinks alongside tapas nibbles. For a full restaurant experience join us at Mango in Portswood and on Above Bar Street. 

In light of the new government regulations, social distancing and reduced capacity, we’ve had to update our bookings policy. Please read before booking your table. 

 

BOOKING SYSTEM

To help us ensure the best possible service, we’ve updated our online booking system. You will be given a choice of times for when you would like the table from and until based on what is available, to a maximum of two hours. Look for the lightning bolt⚡️symbol to make an instant booking. Please understand that we will need the table back at the chosen time for the next guests and you may be asked to vacate the table if required. If you wish to spend longer with us, please request this at the time of booking and we will do our best to accommodate where possible.

 

CARD AUTHENTICATION

We now require secure card authentification of £10 per person to book a table to help us to avoid no shows and last minute cancellations which have a massive impact on our business. No money will be taken unless you fail to turn up for your booking or break Mango’s booking terms. If you need to make a cancellation or alter numbers please let us know before 1pm on the day of your booking. 

 

ARRIVING AT THE VENUE

We respectfully request that you arrive promptly to ensure you take full advantage of your time allocation. If you are more than 15 minutes late and haven’t let us know, we cannot guarantee to hold the table for your booking and it might be given to waiting guests or you may not have enough time to dine before the next table is booked in. 

You will need to wear a face covering on arrival until you are sat at your table, as well as when you are moving around the restaurant. You may need to wait outside until we seat you, so as we venture into colder months we recommend you wrap up in your tweeds and faux furs. 

GENERAL BOOKINGS

Diners at one table must be from the same household, support bubble or meeting for the purpose of business. By making a booking, you are confirming that one of these is true for your party. We are unable to accept tables for just drinks, so if you’re excited about Mango Cocktail Club, please be aware you will still need to order (and eat) a minimum of 2 tapas each (or a curry/wok dish when visiting our Portswood and Above Bar restaurants). Last orders for food and drinks is now 10pm, and we politely ask that all guests vacate the building before the clock strikes 11pm. 

GROUP BOOKINGS

We are unable to accept bookings of more than 6 people at this time. If you choose to make multiple bookings to create a group larger than 6, we cannot guarantee that we can seat you close to each other and members of each group MUST stay at their designated table. Please do not turn up in groups of more than 6. We will ask you to leave if you don’t follow the rules. We are happy to receive larger enquiries for future dates but please bear in mind Government guidelines will dictate availability. If you are looking to book a working lunch for 15 or more, please send us an enquiry. With a week’s notice, we will be happy to open especially for your group. 

TRACK AND TRACE

The person who makes the booking has a responsibility to inform their other guests if at a later date we contact you with regards to the Government Track and Trace.

 

PAYMENTS

We are accepting cash but we strongly encourage payment by card to limit the risk of transmission. Please note, we do not accept American Express at this time.

 

SERVICE CHARGE

Please note a 10% service charge will be added to your bill at Mango Ocean Village. Tips are kept by the team.

 

DRESS CODE

Smart / smart-casual. No sportswear, football shirts or tracksuits. 

 

CROWDFUNDER

If you have a Crowdfunder voucher, please write your voucher code into the ‘special requests’ field. Thank you again for your support 🙂

 

WALK-INS

Whilst we love that you guys do just pop in, for now we can only guarantee tables that have pre-booked. Anyone who walks in without a reservation will need to supply a name, telephone number and email address. This is to help future tracing in the event of another outbreak of the virus.
