We had the Christmas lunch which was served up in nice, hot plates. Plenty of veg - nicely cooked and the desserts were well presented. The Prawn Cocktail starter was rather lacking in prawns. Very helpful and friendly staff.

Met up with a group of friends and decided to go to The Maypole for its location, between Taunton and Bridgwater which meant it was accessible for everyone. It was a Tuesday evening so that would probably explain why the pub was extremely quiet though not for long once we all got started catching up with each other! I had... More

Great outside garden but the benches are old and unsafe, each time you moved you could imagine a "you've been framed moment" lots of old equipment left around again unsafe. Menu.... Wanted to order a pizza to share but they only do it as a Take Away??? Ordered Ham Egg and Chips special. It was awful, the three dipped chips... More

I met a friend here for lunch and while the welcome was warm and pleasant that cannot be said for the rest of the experience. The pub lacks something........customers perhaps? We were the only ones in the main area and the only other people there were having a ploughman's lunch during a break whilst using the function room. They are... More

My partner and i stopped here for a light lunch and were very pleasantly surprised. The staff were friendly and attentive and the food was fab, the extra touch for us was the home made tomato ketchup which tasted amazing! We will DEFINATELY be coming back!

A very pleasant lunch here last Sunday. Most of us had a roast and there were no complaints. Puddings were good too. It made a nice change to get decent food in a UK pub. Service was polite and quick without being rushed. We sat and chatted in a nice atmosphere. Would go again.

Without doubt the best Club Sandwich I've ever eaten (and I've had a few...) Bought at The Maypole Inn, home baked bread loaded with ham, eggs, whole chicken breast, bacon and a salad with all the trimmings. Outstanding.

A good range of beers to choose from. I had fish chips and mushy peas, all good, except for the peas, these were the oddest tasting mushy peas I've ever had and I wont be having them again here. Good pub, popular with Bikers, nice location.

Popped in as uninspired by a rival pub menu down the road and really glad we did! Had to wait half an hour until the kitchen opened but was fine as got a drink and kids ran riot in the excellent kids area. Didn't fancy much food due to the hot weather, so ordered a couple of platters. They were... More
