Second visit for Sunday lunch; really friendly staff and the Roast outstanding.
Was seated and waited 20 mins to be served at which point we left the restaurant and found breakfast in Penn hill.
Superb meal in a vibrant atmosphere. Have been once before and cannot wait to visit again. #Recommended
Lovely evening. Great food
Bar area noisy for a while
Our first time here for food we’ve popped in for coffee before and we absolutely loved it! The food and service was brilliant we will definitely be back!
Once again a fabulous Sunday roast. Staff are fantastic...we just pop in for a quick lunch...they are super efficient at serving us quickly and very friendly. We love it.
Nice garden. Staff were friendly but inattentive. Had to call them over every time. Preserved lemon totally overpowered the sea bass and was unpleasant to eat. Veg extra. Dessert was nice. The noise level (of diners chatting etc) is very loud and uncomfortable.
Fabulous menu and food, staff are friendly and professional making our night feel special.
We had a lovely lunch, the food was delicious and great value. The restaurant is beautiful and we’ll definitely be back. The staff were wonderful and great with the kids however, it was very slow. I struggled to get anyone’s attention at all, we had to ask for the dessert menu some time after everything had been cleared away and ended up paying at the bar as we left because no one came with the bill. If it had been busier I’d have understood but it was very quiet. I can’t take away from anything else. And I don’t generally leave reviews. It’s such a lovely place and maybe it was an off day.
We’ve been here a few times and what stands out for us is the food consistently superb. Can’t recommend highly enough.
We were disappointed with the food for the price we paid. The belly of pork was not expected just a lump of pork and the curry had no sauce typical to conventional Thai curries. The seating was very crowded between tables and lacked intimacy for the expected standard of restaurant. One of the service staff assigned to our table were a bit surly. Disappointed sorry.
A delicious meal and excellent service, although it was a quiet day. The only slight downside was the wine we chose was not available. However, our second choice was very good.
This was our third visit to the restaurant - all have been very good.
Lovely ambience and welcome from the owner. Our waitress was keen and helpful but another very inexperienced waiter brought wrong food order to table and had to ask twice for condiments. The roast was ok but in comparison to price, we’ve had better elsewhere. We would visit again but for drinks in the sunny garden terrace.
First visit to Maison Sax. Staff were very welcoming and enthusiastic. Menu imaginative and varied. Although the restaurant was very busy, the service was very good and attentive. When the dishes arrived, they were delicious and piping hot with ample portions. So ample we couldn't manage desert. The only negative was the noise. It was very noisy with two parties. I understand it is difficult to manage to loud and raucous groups, but it did detract from a most enjoyable dining experience.
We will ho back but perhaps will avoid Saturdays.
Excellent food and good value for money. Staff very attentive and helpful.
The food & service was great, they do the best cheese souffle, will definitely be going back.
Sunday lunch was excellent, staff friendly and welcoming.
The food is very well presented and cooked to a high standard. We have enjoyed both lunch and dinner at Maison Sax and on both occasions the food and the staff have been a good experience. In the week we found that the restaurant was not at all busy, in fact on 2 visits we were the only customers.
Although the food is good value, the wine list is good but there does not seem to be a house wine, so putting the price of a bottle of wine with your meal proves rather expensive, in fact the wines are more expensive here than the competing restaurants.
Enjoyed a lovely lunch with the family. Attentive and friendly staff.
The restaurant was very busy and noisier than usual as it was Mother’s Day but the service was great and very tasty roast beef!
Nice restaurant good food, with are only concern that our ‘table for two’ seemed to be an afterthought in its positioning and was located close to the passageway to the kitchen.
I booked Maison Sax after hearing mixed reviews from friends but wanted to try it for myself. We were seated at our table just after 8pm. We did not receive our food which was two burgers and a vegetable curry until 9:30pm. This was after enquiring twice about the delay to our food. The waitress said the delay was due to the fact that we were the last table to be seated (we weren't there was at least one table which arrived after us). She then went on to say that it was the customers fault as everyone wanted to book tables and eat at the same time. We suggested that it might be a good idea to stagger their table bookings in future if everyone was arriving and ordering at the same time. But to be honest the restaurant was busy but not insanely busy for a Saturday night. In terms of service and value for money there are better options to be found in Ashely Cross.
Sunday roast was amazing. I ordered the pork which came with crispy crackling and the meat was so tender. Huge home made yorkshire pudding, 4 roasties and plenty of veg. Staff are welcoming and attentive. Would highly recommend.
The main courses were presented beautifully, arrived promptly and tasted good.
The cheese board could have been better presented with more extras and more cheese selection and bigger portion
Went with a group of new mums for coffee, really helpful, brilliant service. Definitely planning to return.
Best Sunday roast around and ‘the best we’ve ever had’ 10/10 review from my kids on the chocolate brownie!
getting better, not great acoustics, but best roast locally
Great food once again. We were looked after really well
Great food and wine at a reasonable price. Excellent staff. A tad noisy but restaurant was busy as it was a Saturday evening.
It was an excellent evening
The food delicious
We shall look forward to going again
Although a busy Saturday Night we had good service and helpful suggestions for our choice of selections and wine. Excellent food we shared a Chateaubriand - cooked to perfection. We’ll be back very soon
Great food and service. Drinks expensive. Too noisy.
Lovely food and great decor, very noisy though
Have been looking forward to dining at Maison Sax since it re opened from the previously being The Brit. WOW!... what a transformation. Wouldn’t even recognise the place. The ambience was just right for a Sunday lunch time (enough going on but not too noisy)
I had the cheese souffle to start which was fantastic and probably one of the best I’ve had. Boyfriend had the fish cake which was again lovely.
Onto the mains, We both had heard lots of great things about the roast dinners so we decided to have Beef. It was lovely and the gravy was just beautiful!
The staff were very friendly and welcoming, however the only criticism I would have is they didn’t come and check everything was ok with food etc and could have been a little bit more attentive. Not a major annoyance though.
We were too full for desert so asked for the bill. The value for money is excellent considering the portion sizes( 2 courses for £20.95) is great in my eyes!
After we finished we had a look around and went to the garden which was amazing! Like a large Mediterranean style courtyard. Very pretty.
Overall we were really happy with our experience here and can’t wait to come back for an evening meal!
Everything was great but you need to install some sound absorption products. Any acoustic engineer should be able to help out. We curtailed our meal just to escape the noise. Four of us couldn't hold a conversation across the table.
Love the food & the service is first class. So good with my 12 year old son too. Can’t recommend enough!
A lovely relaxing Sunday roast. Great food and service.
Excellent service. Staff very attentive. Good food. The only downside is that considering the restaurant was only half full was the high noise levels. Presumably this was just down to the decor - very few "soft" furnishings to deaden the noise. Would certainly visit again.
Excellent Valentine's Day treat. Food was excellent and the service impeccable. Highly recommended.
My wife expressed she’d had the best meal of her life!
