Fantastic service and lovely food. Nice touch offering free deserts for mothers on Mother's Day! Love that they are dog friendly, and even provided a bowl of water for him.

Great food with a lovely atmosphere & friendly staff - highly recommend. I can't fault anything about the evening. One of our daughters is a vegetarian & for once she was even spoiled for choice. A good place for family dinning, business or a catch up with friends over a bottle of wine - will definitely return.

We Went to The Maquis for Father's Day . I booked this for my husband and children. Booking online was easy and chose this as food, service and ambience is always great. Been here quite a few times with different people during the day and the evening and I just like the quality of the food, the happy, attentive and friendly staff.

Lemon wedge with waitbait stale and hard I had to give my hubby mine out of my gin and tonic! Kids fish fingers 90% batter pathetic amount of fish inside!!! I wouldn't let my daughter eat it! My Cajun chicken salad came with nothing as described. Was meant to have roasted peppers on it?!?! Was horrible spikey lettuce leaves, tomato and cucumber that's it. Hardly eadable and left most. Hubby enojoyed his roast although portion small and he was hungry again within the hour! The one positive.....loved the decor! X

Lovely olde worldy pub with modern touches. Spacious outdoor area, with plenty of seating. All the staff are welcoming, friendly and polite. Service was quick and the food was to high standard and my choice was homemade. Can't fault the place.
