I fear 7pm on a Sunday evening was not the best time to pick up a takeaway. Pretty poor, I need to seek alternatives.

If you want a meal with excellent food, friendly service and good prices then I can highly recommend The Maypole. My family and I had an excellent evening. Every mouthfull was perfect. The owner Ken even suggested that I had ordered too much rice, which was correct. They couldn't do enough for us. Definitely 5 stars!

I have visited this restaurant periodically over the past 12 years and the quality of the food remains very high. The food tastes home made and the produce is if the highest standard. It is a treat to eat there. Higher in price than the usual high street Thai or Chinese restaurant.

To top this I asked about childrens menu and told there isn't one, so... More

Just visited this restaurant with my 8 year son, a friend and her 11 year old son and 8 year daughter. When the food arrived it was lovely, but with what we ordered we found the portion size rather small, prices didn't appear to bad either. Until our bill arrived... Everything was dearer on our bill the on the menu... More
