A very busy pub in a lovely setting, we had two meals here with really good food, and excellent service. Fish and chips was excellent, a large piece of fish in a thin beer batter. Can also recommend the cajun chicken burger. You need to...book in advance to be sure of getting a table.More

Longest day of year, Tuesday afternoon, 8 mile cycle through open countryside to The Maybush. Bright sunshine, spectacular views over River Deben, very friendly staff, great food and drinks. Squid for starters, surf & turf mains with one of the best cooked steaks I've experienced...eating out. Strongly recommendMore

Great position. Advice would be to go just after 'peak' times as restaurant and car park get very busy. Starter 5* leek & potato soup. Mains 5* Fish great, linguini brilliant and burger with added pulled pork was awesome Desserts 3* at £7.95 lemon brulee...had no flavour and brownie was closer to school chocolate crunch. Staff were very good.More

Meeting friends while on holiday and booked for 12:30, The Maybush was fairly busy but still had a feeling of calm. We chose a table on the terrace looking across the Deben and went in to order. Very quick service for drinks and food, the...food was well presented and cooked, served by friendly and chatty staff After a couple of hours ( including amazing Eton Mess desert ) we walked across the fields and returned a couple of hours later intending to just have quick cup of tea. However, the cream teas looked too tempting so we all indulged (well worth it) whilst chatting and enjoying the views, eventually leaving around 6:30 We look forward to visiting again soon and definitely would recommend ( even our Sheltie recommended the biscuit treats )More

Great food but if you choose to eat in the garden you are banished from approaching the inside bar to order your second drink. Had to queue for a long time with people ordering meals. Will think very carefully before returning. Customers inside get table...service. Surely we are all customers and the bar staff could do drinks only. Very disappointed.More

Was recommended to eat here Saturday evening. Felt we were being rushed from beginning. Asked what we wanted for starter before drinks. Got drinks order wrong. Then got starter wrong, staff had to question we didn’t order a prawn cocktail. Then our mains came when...I was still eating my starter. After this 3rd error we walked out. Wouldn’t bother coming on a Saturday evening, perhaps better service would be on a Monday lunchtimeMore

Sorry no idea as we didn't use the bar. Suggest you give them a call or e mail.
