    Had to wait nearly an hour for food. Not busy either. No offer of remuneration. Told problem due to no card machine and deliveries. If you can't accommodate in house customers first then don't deliver outwith. Very disappointed as been before and was excellent all round. Very friendly staff.

    Food was absolutely delicious. Unfortunately food was really slow to be served, waited 45 mins for a starter, a few mistakes were made with the order which meant 2 dishes had to be returned and remade. Although they were returned no problem the general customer service offered was poor. We were celebrating a birthday. We had brought a cake beforehand but staff forgot, served us the bill after our mains without offering us a dessert, we paid for the bill and noticed staff finishing up so had to remind them about the cake which was then very quickly given to us and just put back in box quickly. It was clear staff wanted us home. It was our first time visiting and sadly it would put me off returning or recommending which is a shame as food tastes amazing.

    Another fantastic meal at Maggies! Was out with my mum, and I picked Maggies as she’s never been. I had the Cajun chicken crepes and my mum had the Katsu chicken curry, both dishes were absolutely delicious. Didn’t have a long wait for the meals either, staff were attentive but not intrusive and they were all so friendly. For dessert i had the apple crumble and custard and my mum went for the Belgian waffles with Nutella and banana, both were absolutely outstanding. Cannot wait to come back again!

    nice decor, staff very busy, slow service. food was presented well, very small fish (paid full price) for what they’re charging. too much garnish on everyone’s plates, needs cut back. overall nice enough if you want to try somewhere different. but wouldn’t be my choice next time i eat out.

    Thought we’d give this place another try after the experience last time not being great. Booked a table for 12pm for lunch & arrived 10mins early. Not shown to our table, just told where it was. No-one came near to take our food order for 30mins even though there were only a couple of other tables in! Ordered the steak burgers which arrived as just a plain burger in a plain roll with a handful of chunky chips on the side even though it was supposed to come with salad & coleslaw, had to ask the waitress for the rest of our meal! Burger not the best & not great value. Definitely won’t be back, the service seems to get worse each time, seems to be plenty of staff but none of them attentive at all! No-one came near to ask how our food was either.

    Been to Maggies on a few occasions no issues. However, this time service very slow waited over an hour and a half for mains staff took a long time to address issue. Excuse was had a lot of walk ins but we had booked so should have been a priority. Give manager his due he eventually came over to apologise and offered money off bill. Food was still good x

    I was a bit disappointed with the starters we got 2 starters of pakora (haggis & Chicken)to share between 3 amount of us, I know you don’t want to bulk up on a starter before a main but 4 pieces of Haggis Pakora for £8.25 was a bit overpriced and the chicken pakora were little thin strips of chicken for the same price we were a bit underwhelmed….. The mains were nice though

    The food was a very high standard, this was a party of 5 with all different choices and each individual meal was cooked to perfection. All the waitresses were very attentive to our table and with a child included in our party she got lots of attention which was nice the time she was given. We will definately be back.
