    Staff were very pleasant and very friendly. The food was amazing. Decent portion sizes too and good value for money. The garlic mushroom starter off of the festive menu was a 10/10 The only thing that I picked up on as a very slight negative was that a member of staff appeared to be cleaning or drying cutlery in earshot of the restaurant and it was being thrown in a drawer/container of some sort and all we heard for a solid 5 minutes was silverware hitting against each other. You'd be surprised at how loud it actually is.

    First time in maggies it was recommended to us and it was great .very friendly staff quick service and good value for money .food was well presented and plentiful.just be careful of the step on way out the door as my friend tripped and stumbled into the barrier outside but on the funny side the people that were at traffic lights in there cars must have thought she had one too many diet cokes .

    Waited 40 minutes before our order for food was taken. Starter arrived fairly quickly and was delicious, main was slow to arrive (around 25 minutes later) and was not worth the wait. The garlic dip was overwhelmingly garlic, chicken tempura was mostly batter and was served with fries and no side salad or anything else. Staff were lovely though.

    Some people have commented that Maggies can be slow, I do not see that. What I see is a kitchen who prepares everything so fresh that you need to wait a little but not much longer than anywhere else however it shows in the quality of the food. It is outstanding value for money and the staff are all excellent. For a business to offer what it does in the current difficult climate is truly outstanding and this is due tot he dedication of the owners and the staff who come together to form a very strong and dedicated team.

    Came to Maggie's on a Tuesday lunchtime and had a lovely meal. Decor is very inviting with a calm vibe. Staff were all very pleasant and helpful. Meal itself was delicious and very reasonably priced. Did have a bit of a delay for the main course but wasn't really a problem. Was my first time there but certainly won't be my last.

    Great service from everyone. We were sat in the main bit originally which was VERY noisy as there was a large party in, but a member of staff quickly noticed and moved us to a much quieter area. Food was great, service good and very friendly.

    Service and waiting time was not good at all! We waited 20minutes to be served and when I asked to order at the same time I was told 2minutes to actually wait half an hour. We were in for breakfast at 11:10 and did not get our food until 12:20. We were sat through the back which is fine however with previous experience the service you receive through there is not good in comparison to in the main area. I have been many times and tend to enjoy Maggies however the waiting time puts me off coming! I have a young child so it can be hard to entertain her for such a long time without her becoming unsettled. Food was good as always however the service etc brings down the whole experience.
