Hi Ricky, From everyone here at the Maynard, thank you. These are the reviews that we strive to receive. It's why everyone at the pub, from BOH to FOH, work as hard as they do. We are continuing to grow and develop with the great customers that we have coming through our doors and we only hope to get better as we throw off the next lot of restrictions. We can't wait to have you back Ricky and hopefully provide this level of service again and again. Best wishes and stay safe, George

This was our first time going out since the lockdown, and to our disappointment this has been the worst experience we’ve had. We was given the worst table and told there was no availability but when we looked their was. The host was quite rude and the table we was given wasn’t even clean. Really disappointed. Customer service was just awful no care at all!

Despite booking far in advance and confirming several days before that our table would be under cover, it was not under cover at all and was inconveniently located in the path of travel for the servers and to the exit. The squid Nicois salad lacked flavor and had no salt or lemon, despite the description on the menu. The Maynard is my go-to because of the ambiance in the garden, but the food was really disappointing.

Waited for 20 minutes to be served. Nobody even bothered to look our way. Pub was criminally understaffed and outside area crammed to the max. Walked away without any service - they probably didn't even notice. Won't return. An absolute shambles of a pub, I've never seen anything like it

Hi, I am so sorry to hear about this, your experience falls very short of what we strive to provide, and I apologize profusely for this. The garden was indeed very busy today, and our team is working very hard to serve everyone and bring a good atmosphere into the garden, that's what we aim for; so I am so sorry that is not what you got. Could you write to us on info@maynardarmsn8.co.uk and tell us any more details about your visit so that we can investigate this? Thanks! Kind regards, Shankar

The food was great, definitely good value for money. Service was not as good as we had a lot of trouble getting hold of waiters to place orders/ask for the bill, felt like they were understaffed.

One more thing to keep in mind is that they had umbrellas for protection from the wind- but that meant they couldn't turn on the heaters. They only had 2-3 tables for parties with 5+ people that were properly protected by the elements and allowed for heating to be used. Overall good experience, I would go again.

Had a great time & love the garden refurb! The vegan platter was a very yummy grazing board. A great local and we always look forward to coming back :)
Only missed a star for service because it took as a while to get someone to order a few times. I appreciate it’s tricky to operate without any bar service and we were there from 3-5pm ish so I imagine more staff were due in for the eve.

It's ok, although quiet. I find it annoying that the kitchen shuts so early though.

The Maynard Arms
Responded 5 days ago

Hi Nancy, Sorry that you found our pub quiet - we've been exceptionally busy lately, so it really does surprise me that this was the case. Due to only being allowed to trade outside our licence only permits the pub to be open until 10pm, therefore we close our kitchen at 9.15pm to allow plenty of time for the food to be cooked an eaten before we must close. When we reopen fully our kitchen is open later than this. Sorry for your disappointment here. Cheers, Nick

I love this pub and it's garden is fabulous,even better now with their recent lighting additions. So beautiful!
Went last week for lunch and last night for dinner,both times with friends. I've been a number of times in the past for drinks,dinner and kids parties ( years ago!)
Last Friday a number of us had the sea bass and it was delicious, everyone was impressed. Only 3 of us had been before so the others were pleased to have found a new pub! Last night I had a disappointing starter of squid and whitebait,very small for the price & mainly salad,although decently cooked and the veggie burger with sweet potato fries which was fine but the fries were slightly overcooked. Others had the sea bass but the skin wasn't crispy,maybe it was a different chef or they weren't having such a good day as last week (& when I went last December). Others had a burger and a chicken dish,both really liked theirs.
Service was good on both occasions and last week we had great gins and other cocktails!
Overall I'd recommend it as a great pub. Covid safe too.
