Brunch visit - excellent food

Visited as a group of 5 for brunch on a Sat morning. Place was busy and so we were pleased we had reserved a table. It appeared that there was one front of house person and one in the kitchen, I felt an additional person would have assisted. The food could not be faulted - we all had a full... read more

Macys is local to me and I have been a regular customer for about 6 years, I loved their wine menu and their fish selection. Thankfully, on the positive side the wine menu hasn't changed. We went in for a bottle of wine and some nibbles. We ordered and were presented with a huge bowl of olives straight from a... More

Hello I am sorry to hear your experience with us was not a positive one, we have had excellent feedback on our menu choices and the service we provide; we are running Macy's more as a bistro rather than a brasserie. We appreciate this is not to everyone's taste, however we want to provide a service to our customers which... More

On a Sunday club cycle ride to Navenby & our intended stop was closed. Plan B saw all 14 of us descending on Macy's. Macy's has a lovely, smart but cosy feel to it & the staff coped very well. Especially as they weren't expecting us. Very nice coffees & no complaints about the food we had. A nice, welcoming... More

This restaurant deserves more customers. Friday night. Delicious food, attentive but not overbearing service, pleasant atmosphere. Great wine. Good value. New ownership, well worth a try.

I am very unimpressed with the new owners who have declined to honour the groupon vouchers for afternoon tea with prosecco, that were sold and were valid to 14th January. I bought two and gave them as Xmas presents so it was very embarrassing when they were refunded. They clearly do not wish to encourage goodwill amongst their potential clients.

Hello, Apologies in the delay in response. Unfortunately we were unable to honour any of the groupon vouchers due to the complexity of the groupon account and switch in ownership, I know this is not much consolation for you but instead of honouring some and not others we had to make an executive decision on this.

I had a delicious lunch with my family at Macy's today. Brilliant service and the food was excellent. Both my young daughters were made very welcome and loved their roast dinner. Macy's is under new management from the start of this month so I recommend you try it.

Well I thought I would treat my partner to afternoon tea for our 9 year anniversary, we have one for a treat now and again. This one popped up on the Groupon site for £14 and looked really nice presented on a cake stand as you usually expect so I bought the voucher and booked. When we went in it... More

This is the second time we have been to Macy's for a taster menu through travelzoo, and this visit was disappointing, we were the only ones in the restaurant for the evening, so no atmosphere, the food was good but the service was not, I wasn't happy to see the waitress carrying the soup bowls with her thumb in the...

My daughter treated her sister and parents to afternoon tea at Macy's Brasserie. I was not sure what to expect after reading some negative reviews. However, I decided that most people who have a good experience tend not to write a review, so I kept an open mind. Firstly, the staff were extremely helpful and we could sit where we... More

As a half term treat four ladies decided to go for afternoon tea. We found a groupon voucher and used that £28 for four. On arrival no table was set up for us and we were asked do you want to sit there, it was as if they'd either forgot us or just hadn't bothered. Our sandwiches arrived very tiny... More
