Lovely food with a wide selection on the menu and daily specials. Good friendly service. The Maybush has a nice family friendly atmosphere. Good value for money!

“Decent pub grub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

Whenever we are in the are my partner and i like to take the short drive down to the maybush, especially in the summer months, the views out over the river are excellent.
Sampled many of the dishes on the menu, favourites are the smoked fish platter and the beer battered local skate are excellent.

“Lovely Meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

My Partner's birthday is on New Years Day and as the weather was lovely this time we went to Aldeburgh for the day and finished up at the Maybush. We have never been there before but members of the family have and said how lovely it was.
The sun had been shining and when we arrived the sun was on the river, looked lovely. We did not have to wait too long for a table and it was quickly cleared and set up for us. My partner had the prawn and crayfish cocktail for starters. It looked lovely and was full of prawns and crayfish, not lettuce like others elsewhere. I did not have a starter. We both had mains, I had scampi and he had the steak. Both were flavoursome and good portions. We did not have desserts. They were a little uninspiring. The staff were pleasant to all - many locals were in the pub and everyone was made to feel welcome. Would definitely go back again.

“Our fave place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

The Maybush is by far our favorite pub/restaurant. As we live in Colchester,it's quite a distance to travel but well worth it. Food & situation beautiful and we combine it with a visit to Woodbridge! Highly recommended!

“Lovely location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

A great riverside view though usually very busy. Best to book. You order at the bar ~ service restricted to delivering your meal and clearing away. Main course well prepared ~ good choice of dishes ~ generous portions. Puds less inspiring ~ seemed to be mostly caterers gateaux and cheescake. Hardly worth the second fight to the bar to place an order.
