“Excellent place to eat and relax”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

We recently visited the Maynard for an evening meal, although this is not the first time we have eaten here. The food is excellent and well presented, and we would not hesitate to recommend the restaurant. the waiting staff are very attentive and polite, which enhanced our evening.
We occasionally visit the Maynard and will continue to do so, knowing that the standards set are always upheld.

“Lovely atmosphere and lovely food”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

We went for Sunday lunch last Sunday. The restaurant was on the quiet side but plenty busy enough so that you didn't feel like you were sat on your own.
After we'd had our food order taken and our drinks brought to us, we sat outside on the decking area and enjoyed the sunshine and views....very nice.

We both had 3 courses and both of us really enjoyed the food, my wife's meal in particular was superb (black pudding starter, chicken with chorizo mash for main and sticky toffee pudding). Although my chocolate and green tea desert was probably slightly better than the sticky toffee....in my eyes at least!

The food, staff, decor (modern but stylish) and views are all excellent at The Maynard. My only slight negative was that there was a picture we really liked in the lounge area and no one could tell us who painted it.....and that negative is very tongue in cheek.

Thank you for your positive feedback! It's really great to know you enjoyed yourselves in the Restaurant.

I am in the process of trying to identify the artist, as it was put in much before I joined the hotel. Hopefully I will have an answer soon!

We look forward to seeing you again.

Best wishes

David
