Service was excellent. Food was served promptly and was very well presented. Didn't have wine we would have preferred but was offered a very nice alternative. Dessert was delicious and again very well presented.

Been to Maggies on a number of occasions and keep coming back. The food is delicious and plenty of options to choose from.

Went with family and kids meals were of great value and good quality.

Our server was amazing ensuring the kids were kept busy with colouring in sheets and always checking everything was suitable for us.

Will be back again!

It felt more like a cafe than a restaurant, I think it was where we were seated as other area’s looked more ambient. Took a while to place our order , wasn’t very hot when it came, the main meal I had tasted a bit off or not what I was expecting. We would have stayed for desserts but because it was a bit slow we didn’t have time as had an event to go to. Staff were lovely but as fist time there I don’t think it made enough of an impression to be back. Was disappointed.

I have been to Maggies on numerous occasions but yesterday there was 3 people on but we were in an hour before we got our main course after we asked how long. The restaurant wasn't overly busy. Our dirty plates were only collected after we asked if we could order sweets. The staff were pleasant especially the girl. It will not stop be eating there but a bit disappointed

This was our second visit and to be honest, I preferred the first time, the food was still good, but it did differ from our first visit, I prefer the taste to be consistent there was a bit too much chili on the starters, I didn't enjoy the heavy chairs on the carpet as it made it difficult to get comfortable. The service was good considering how busy it was. We will still be back as the meal was still really good.

We asked for our starters first and then the kids meals to be served with our main meals. This didn't happen, kids meals served with starters which left kids bored while we ate or main meals. Desserts took a long time to be served. The food was lovely but with kids could have been quicker.

A bit annoyed that I had to run to the cash machine due to a computer malfunction. However the staff worked hard to make sure that this little upset did not detract from the food and overall experience. Well done to your staff 👍

Staff were more interested in chatting, service was quite slow, if we had had to leave after the 2 hours, we would of only managed 1 course. Food portion size was on the small size, ambience was good and good music.

Didn't know until we had ordered that it was cash only. Meaning 1 of us had to leave straight after eating to go to the nearest working cash machine which was a 15 minute walk there and back. Not ideal after eating a 2 course lunch.
Hair in food. Accepted apology and the cost was removed from the bill. Easily done, wouldn't put us off from returning.

Booked in for breakfast at 10am. Service extremely slow, showed to our seats and left with no menus. Breakfast took over an hour to arrive. Food was good once arrived, however item missing from breakfast. The table we were given was next to toilets and as we were unhappy with the smell we asked to move, we were told this was not possible as they were fully booked.

My first time dining here, Had a lovely birthday breakfast, food was amazing, service was a little slow however they were extremely busy with some large tables dining so understandable. Food was tasty and hot on arrival. Staff lovely too. Although we didn’t know that it was cash only until they got their new card machine installed and we only had card, didn’t know this until we got the bill, but the staff were very understanding and told us to drop the money in later. We left and went to a cash machine and handed it in. Will definitely return.

Got served the wrong drink and still got charged for it even though it was sent back. The food was okay but our waitress was very very poor. Would not come back
