“An overpriced mock gourmet experience.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2012

Overpriced 'pretend' gourmet food served badly by uninterested waiters and vastly up itself; no sign of MPW of course as it is probably cooked in London and shipped out to Maresfield; another franchise deal!

“Absolutely PERFECT”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2012

We have had the pleasure of dining at Wheelers St James Maresfield many times , the service is perfect, Infact we would go as far to say we rate it as the best service we have experienced whilst dining out! The surroundings are beautiful and the food is first class. Will we return YES ,YES YES!

“Disappointing!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2012

Rushed service - as soon as the starters were cleared the mains arrived, we asked for a pause so the food was sent back to the kitchen but there was no apology from the manager, he didn't even bother to come over to ask when we would like the mains to return.

The mens toilets were dirty lights not working in the main restaurant, generally I had higher expectations.

“Sunday lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2012

Excellent staff who were very busy but not too busy to help.Set Sunday lunch menu was interesting and I think had something for everyone. They are open all day with a Sunday supper menu that looked great.
Tables are very close together in the room we were in, so you get quite friendly with your neighbours, might not be so good if it were a romantic occasion.
I would go back and try an evening dinner.
