Food ok but not brilliant. Told by a very uninterested "waitress" that despite spending over £80 on meals and drinks, the kitchen was closed for dessert? How hard is it to give a child a bowl of ice cream? How hard is it actually to ask your customers if they would like anything else? Definitely wouldn't recommend.

Cannot comment on food, drinks or staff as simply didn't get that far! Nearly every pub we visited in the wider area allowed dogs into the pub, or at least the outside seating area. This pub allows neither. I understand no dogs in the pub as some places don't want that, no dogs on the outside area though? Why? Makes... More

I had my wedding reception at the Maypole Inn, Thurloxton recently and it was absolutely fantastic. I would highly recommend this venue for its atmosphere, the pub, food and the landlords, Jo & James. They couldn't do enough for me to make sure my wedding reception was just how I wanted it. They were helpful, friendly and nothing was too... More

Spur-of-the-moment visit to the Maypole Inn. Ordered the £5 special which was swede and bacon pie. Absolutely delicious! Would have happily paid more for this. Had a cheeseboard to follow. Amazing value - so much cheese we took some home and it lasted us a couple of days. Recommended.

Our second visit here in a year. We returned as we were impressed on our first visit. We booked for Friday night dinner. Staff were all very nice, we were not rushed and most important the dinner was good. Four different orders and no one had a complaint with any. Price was average (£55 for 4) so no complaints there...

Party of six . First warning was dirty cutlery.1 of the 6 meals ordered didn't arrived the error was blamed on the computer. The rump steaks were very tough and chewy and the beef and ale pie was very stale and the pastry was rock hard. Bread was stale BUT the chips were excellent!

Not been here for several years as previous management didn't endear themselves to us !! So thought we would give it a try. Great welcome, with usual banter with locals while checking out the cask beers, also interesting selection of wines, bit short of anything from France though ? Found ourselves a table and looked through the menu. Interesting presentation... More
