“suprised”
Reviewed February 16, 2012

this is Irthlingborough's second best chinese (i think) following closely behind Golden Harvest (although that is only take-away). It used to be higher priced, but I went recently and the prices are the same as any other chinese around, but the food is of a higher quality. A lot of locals often go here for special occasions and I have always known it to be very popular

“Great food and service!”
Reviewed January 15, 2012

Really worth a visit. It was great to find proper Chinese food and attention to customer service, many restaurants have forgotten the little thinks today, not the Mayflower! We will return again soon.

“Very friendly, great food, lovely atmosphere”
Reviewed January 12, 2012

Each time we visit the Mayflower, we are dilighted by the friendly service, the great food and the relaxing atmosphere.
The staff are attentive without being in the way, and can't do enough for you. We asked for a variation on the menu and this was no problem - nothing ever is.
My brother was over from Abu Dhabi recently and we wanted to take him somewhere really special - once again the Mayflower delighted us all.
There is always a huge variety on offer on the menu and prices are very good - especially given the high quality of the food.
Well worth a try!!

“OVERPRICED ZERO ATMOSPHERE AND MISERABLE FACED WOMAN”
Reviewed December 16, 2011

Made me laugh to read this restaurant is voted number 2 in Irthlingborough seeing as it is the only Chinese restaurant there and the only other sit down restaurants are 2 Indians...The tall lady that works there is a real miserable looking sour face. She has an attitude as if she is doing you a favour by allowing you to spend your money. We noticed she is always speaking to other employees in a snidey manner about the customers especially when it come to the end of the meal when the tipping is due. The restaurant is never full ( we have been there 3 times in 4 years ) to sit down and each time we wonder why we bothered. There is absolutely NO ATMOSPHERE WHATSOEVER.. It is honestly overpriced for what it is and where it is. Nothing they cook there I would say is freshly prepared mixed starters for instance pancake rolls prawns in pastry etc you know the sort of thing all prepacked thrown in the Wok and served. Crispy Duck on set meal must be anorexic as there is hardly anything on there.. Wine prices are a joke cheap old House Wine around £12 to £14.. cost about £2.99 from the wholesalers guaranteed next day hangover poison.. Anybody that can say that this restaurant is value for money etc has really never been to a decent restaurant without a doubt.. Give it a miss..............

“Overpriced”
Reviewed August 25, 2011

A group of us went from Church and were disappointed by the portion size, food quality and price of drinks. This was a set meal. The dessert was a tablespoon of tinned fruit salad or one scoop of ice cream. Not somewhere we'd go again.
