Amazing meal

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.

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

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

Had a Carvery Lunch today. The Beef was delicious. The choice of vegetables was poor, frozen mixed veg and parsnips only. Roast potatoes not crisp, the one I eat tasted as if it had been reheated. The yorkshire pudding was OK. I was shocked at the poor choice of vegetables! I would not recommend the Maypole for a Carvery meal!

A group of us, twelve in number held a business reunion at the Maypole recently. As we all came from locations in the south west we chose the Maypole for its central location just off the A38 between Taunton and Bridgewater. The good points: :A large car park. A charming country Inn in a pretty location. Friendly and attentive staff.(... More

Arrangements were made with management for a dozen of us to meet up after many years. We were received with a lovely friendly attitude, a room set aside for us. The menu was varied, prices very reasonable and the food very good indeed. Nothing was too much trouble.

On the occasion of a family wedding, we had sole use of the Maypole for the reception, with around 60 sitting down for an afternoon meal and around 80 for the evening, which included a disco and a buffet. Four days after Christmas, but the staff were alert and attentive throughout the service period, and dealt with the usual variety... More
