Recently ordered a takeaway meal from the Maypole and there were numerous problems with the order. When we phoned to explain, they kept us waiting about 10 minutes then hung up on us. We phoned again and it was abundantly clear they don't like any form of critisism so in the end I said I would put a report on... More

I fear 7pm on a Sunday evening was not the best time to pick up a takeaway. Pretty poor, I need to seek alternatives.

If you want a meal with excellent food, friendly service and good prices then I can highly recommend The Maypole. My family and I had an excellent evening. Every mouthfull was perfect. The owner Ken even suggested that I had ordered too much rice, which was correct. They couldn't do enough for us. Definitely 5 stars!

There is a great variety and if you want more of any particular dish, you can just ask! Lovely, friendly couple who run it, great with the kids - and good value for... More

I have visited this restaurant periodically over the past 12 years and the quality of the food remains very high. The food tastes home made and the produce is if the highest standard. It is a treat to eat there. Higher in price than the usual high street Thai or Chinese restaurant.
