Many people (mainly tradesmen) rave about the food at the merry maid and I have been 3 times so I feel my review is fair. YES its cheap great value for money. However it's in a run down boozer and you eat off wall paper paste tables and leave stinking like burnt onions. Very busy on weekends very booze Britain... More

Suitable for families, couples, and large groups. Best mixed grill ever (chicken tikka, chicken wings, lamb kebabs and lamb chops) We've returned on several occasions and also had take away..this has defiantly become a family favourite for us.

The best Indian food by far. Mixed grill is very filling and all dishes are great value for money. Mick is a top guy and makes everyone feel welcome

My husband and I visited the pub to sample their renowned indian grill and food after reading so many reviews. It did not disappoint..rather it exceeded our expectations. The lady owner was welcoming and recommended some dishes and told us the portions were large...she wasn't joking! We ordered the small mixed grill, fish pakoras and saag chicken with garlic naan....

We were introduced to the Merry Maid by some friends, we were told and I quote "Don't expect too much, it's not what you'd call posh, but we like it" So we didn't and they were right! It's not what you'd call posh BUT it's a proper pub, the staff and the patrons were really friendly, we were greeted warmly,... More
