Trying to be something it's not?

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... read more

The lunchtime carvery for six pounds is amazing value. Lovely food, lovely waitress, lovely pub. Definitely will be going back.

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

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
