Dog friendly!

Visited with a friend and her dog last week. It was a lovely surprise that we were made so welcome with her dog. We both had veggie breakfasts, which were excellent value for money. The sandwiches have always been great, people that live close by are very lucky! I can't wait to visit again.

There are other reviews which highlight the owner's TERRIBLE attitude which make interesting reading. Here is mine - We normally frequent Brown's at Heslington at lunchtime as it is a favourite of ours from work, but as a change, on a twice monthly basis, colleagues will take it in turns to drive to Mairs. NEVER AGAIN. I don't care how... More

Such a wide choice of fillings. Get there early or order in advance the dinnertime rush means you could wait a long time. The combinations are endless

Once again, mair's did not disappoint! With a vast array of fresh, quality bread and sandwich fillings to chose from (get there early for the best selection), we opted for the sausage and bacon number for our brekkie. We ate in, amongst the shabby chic furniture and had quick, friendly service to the table despite everything being made to customer... More

I took a friend here for lunch. You need to allow some time because there is always a queue and the food is cooked to order but I really enjoyed my food and so did my friend. Needs more staff.

Just read some of the previous comments about value for money... unbelievable! if you want good, quality, home made food made by 2 very passionate owners, you've got to pay for it HOWEVER it is amazing value and not expensive at all! I am always surprised at how little my bill comes too given how much food I usually order... More

My dog and I have breakfast at Mairs at least twice a week, sometimes we even take another human. It's a lovely place, Lynda and Eric are so hard working and the food is excellent. It's so heartwarming to be greeted by name and I'd recommend the place the anybody. It's true that Eric's style is very individual but, frankly,... More

I have visited Mairs on number of occasions and have had mixed experiences. The food has always been lovely, and there is a wide selection which is of good quality. It is vastly overpriced though - a similar order in a different shop the day before cost half as much. Unfortunately, my most recent trip is likely to be my... More
