Not many places you can get a perfectly cooked rib eye roast, but this is one! Served medium rare, it was delicious. Trimmings were also great, particularly the braised red cabbage and buttered carrots. Service was brill, water and biscuits provided for the four legged guest. The Maynard shows others how Sundays should be done.

We had an amazing meal at the Maynard last night. We arrived & the waitress had kindly written out all the options to suit my dietary requirements (gluten free, part dairy free).

We had been meaning to come here for some time and we're glad we finally got round to it. Timing was key as I am on chemotherapy for ovarian cancer and the chemo really ruins sense of taste. So this was a big night - tastebuds had recovered as far as they were going to and it was a week... More

It was a gorgeous late summer evening, so we headed out for a random drive out with a view to stopping somewhere for a bite to eat.

Gourmet dishes but without the nonsense of tiny portions. We had the rabbit and the beef, both very good as it was the whole of the 3 courses plus a couple of extra from the chef.

Very nice place. The wedding breakfast was very well prepared and presented. A bit clinical. The beer? Don't look for real ale experience. Would have to stay longer to be more objective. The bride and groom spoke very highly as did some of the wedding guests who stayed there.
