    Outstanding food and service as usual - highly recommend trying the Maven for Sunday lunch. Haven’t tried lunch/dinner on other days but suspect the quality will be consistent. Thanks again will continue our regular visits.

    This restaurant should be so much busier! It is great value compared to the chain restaurants in town. The decor is stylish, the staff are very friendly, the menu is great. I had duck breast with duck scotch egg and fondant potato, with side dishes of red cabbage (deliciously sweet and tart at the same time) and carrots with savoy cabbage, beans and broccoli. The scotch egg was so good, perfectly seasoned, runny vivid yolk. The duck breast wasn’t too rare or over cooked, so good. Then chocolate fudge cake with black cherries and ice cream, good combination! The fudge cake could have been a bit richer, gooey-er, but the cherries, sauce and ice cream made it 9/10. Generous cheese board too, no stingy slithers of cheese. Good plum chutney. About £90 for 2 courses for 2 with 2 drinks each.
