We decided to try the Maven during the restaurant week 2 courses for £10 and 3 courses for £15. It was our first visit but it won’t be our last. We were greeted by Natalia who couldn’t do enough for us. My husband and I...had Cider and Onion soup which was fantastic. I had the fish and chips, my husband had the gamon which again was fantastic. I had the trio ice cream/ sorbet and my husband had sticky toffee pudding. All I can say is wow s fantastic experience looking forward to going back again sometime. We parked in Dean St multi car park it is £1.70 an hour and free after five during the weekMore

Dreadful booking system, arrived with 8 adults and 3 children to celebrate our parents 40th wedding anniversary, we booked 2 months prior, as Covid restrictions changed 2 days before we called to change the booking to 2 tables of 4. Told no problem. Upon arrival...no booking. Having had such a bad experience we called today to confirm our booking tomorrow for Sunday lunched which they again couldn’t find. We decided to go elsewhere and won’t return, which is a shame considering we frequent quite often. Staff need to take ownership and record bookings or an alternative booking system needs to be setup.More

The Maven was a well laid out restaurant and a nice place to relax and have a meal, my wife and I done the wine and dine experience and from the start of being seated you were seen too immediately by the waitresses, we both...had the starter and then the Roast Dinner and a pudding to follow.The meals were presented to a very high standard and the waitresses looked after your needs very well.After the meal we headed into the Lounge area and enjoyed a quiet drink and soaked in the ambience. The hotel is well placed for touring the city , we would stay here againMore

My partner booked us up for his father's day meal, Staff were smart and friendly. It's a nice clean up to date hotel. We decided to have a 2 course meal, I had the Fresh Scottish Mussels with a creamy sauce which was very nice...you get a fare amount the i had the lamb roast which was very nice the lamb very tasty. My partner had the Sticky belly pork with green papaya chilli & lime he was very disappointed of the size of the pork he could fit all the bits in 1 mouthfull then he had the lamb roast dinner he fully enjoyed. Father & law had the Tomoto Mascarpone soup said it was very tasty the had the Beef roast which he said fully enjoyed. Father got a free small bottle of whisky to take home. Would definitely go again for a nice treat.More

The halloumi skewers came with a tiny portion of halloumi and the ‘Greek’ salad consisted of mainly lettuce which shouldn’t be on a Greek salad. However the staff were great, very attentive & a...special thanks to Dylan what a credit to the team, very professional and polite.More
