“Fantastic food,great staff and KEEP the music going...”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

I also attended Maywood with a few friends on the same night as Tikky110 and we all thought that the music duo enhanced the evening.If he had stayed longer he would have found that some people actually danced and we all seemed to enjoy it!! In fact we stayed longer than we intended to as we really enjoyed ourselves.Our party have an average age of 27 (dont know the age of Tikky110)and can only say that the music played was a good mixture and very entertaining. We have dined a few times at this restaurant before and after the introduction of the music and always had a really excellent meal and found it to be good value for money.The management and staff are very friendly and attentive but not overpowering, giving us time between courses.We think the introduction of the music is a plus for the restaurant and they "may not need it"but it gives the evening an added bonus.We also attended a few weeks back and they had a solo act on which we also enjoyed. We have found it to be the only restaurant in the local vicinity that can offer good food reasonably priced,great atmosphere and no hidden charges for live music.Our advice is to try Maywood for yourselves on a Friday night and you will be pleasantly surprised.

“Good food, nice restaurant - but get rid of the music!!”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

We ate here recently and live locally. There is a really good selection on the menu, complimentary bread & olives were served when we arrived. Had excellent food and the service was great, not rushed, plenty of time to eat and talk. Beer & wine didn't appear to be overly expensive.
What spoiled the evening for us was a cheesy live music duo - "Mailbu Duo", a keyboard player and guitarist, playing along to a synthesized drum and bass track. We endured it through the starter / main course - a selection of middle of the road 70's & 80's rubbish. We were going to have desert, but then they launched into "Delilah" - the awful Tom Jones song. "Bill please!!" and we left.
It's a shame as the restaurant is very good - the food is excellent, tasty, hot and served in plenty of time. The room itself is modern with a large conservatory and is a pleasant place to eat. If the management read this - get rid of the live music. You really don't need it and you're scaring people away with it!

“A great find”
Reviewed July 5, 2012

Spent a very pleasant evening enjoying a delightful meal with very attentive service for not a lot of expense. Food absolutely delicious, great ambience and staff who cannot do enough to make you feel welcome. Will definitely return with a group of friends in the not too distant future. Do yourselves a favour and give Maywood a try. You will not be disappointed!

“Terrible”
Reviewed June 26, 2012

My family had booked a table for my 40th birthday both by phone and called in to the restaurant to confirm, and when we arrived a table had not been reserved and the staff knew nothing about it. The staff were rude and not very helpful ended up walking out.

“Maywood - Great Restaurant - will go again”
Reviewed June 21, 2012

I very rarely write reviews, but I feel I should for this restaurant. I took my wife there as a last minute treat to take her mind off our daughter travelling to Turkey (I know turkish restaurant!). I have never been here before but was extremely please by the whole experience. The service was excellent as was the food. The price was reasonable and the helpings plentiful. The owner and his wife took the time to talk to us and were very nice.
