Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We had a wonderful experience here the other evening. We were a group of 5 adults, 4 children and turned up after bowling. The bar man Barry went the extra mile getting us seated and comfortable. The food was perfect, delicous and generous . I...honestly can't say enough good things about this place. It was just so refreshing to actually enjoy all elements of going out somewhere... Food, service, atmosohere ( and music as was open mic night).. Five stars, we will be backMore

I had 1 pint and then the next pint tasted like washing detergent so I complained at the bar. I was given half a pint back as I had tasted. I went to get another pint but I was refused by the staff saying I...had too much and was intoxicated. The short time I was in there the barman had coughed over fifty times into his little elbow which was lazy. Too young to work in a pub like that. Talking to a person in the way he did and the size he was I thought he must do jujitsu or something. Won’t return to have a pint or pick up the fluMore

We have been to the Maidens Head numerous times in the past and the food has always been good. But unfortunately last night was not so good. My husband ordered Peri Peri chicken wings but he said they were very salty and not crispy on...the outside. Almost like they had just been dipped in the sauce. We both had fries and they were not fully cooked. My chicken bites were fine. No one came over to ask us how our meal was either. Disappointing.More

Popped in for a meal before going onto the Coronation Concert, the staff were very friendly and helpful. We had the Chicken Breast with BBQ sauce, spicy rice, rustic chips, corn on the cob and coleslaw. Everything was very tasty and the chicken was beautifully...cooked, good sized portions and reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend.More

Came in for impromptu lunch after recommendation from my wife studying nearby at SMAE Institute. I had to travel down from the Midlands to collect her due to train strikes but I’m glad I did now! I was only really looking for a sandwich but...ending up with a great value deal of £6 which consisted of Nando’s style chicken drumstick, thigh and chips. You get to pick spice level on the chicken (I chose peri peri) and Cajun chips. Both of which were delicious! However it’s not just the food that makes me recommend this place! Customer service is excellent! I am currently with a walking stick due to a relapsed slipped disc and the lady at the bar noticed this when I went up to the bar and asked for a menu. She carried my pint over twice and also my shopping bag! She went above and beyond and I more than happy to recommend this place! Will be back next time in Maidenhead. Oh and the beer is rather good too. Real ale and local Marlow Brewery. Very moorish ale indeed!More

We both had the Beef Sunday Roast Yesterday. It was excellent. Massive yorkshire, loads of veg, great roast potatoes and very lean tasty beef and plenty of gravy. First time we had the roast and will definately be having it again It is difficult to...go out and get a good roast but Lee (The Manager) cooks the roast and he did an amazing job yesterday. Don't take it off the menu too soon please Lee !!! See you again on Sunday.More

We go to the Maidens Head all the time but we have never reviewed the food. This pub is the best pub in Maidenhead. Lovely staff, great management and best of all the food is fabulous. We had the lemon & garlic chicken and piri...piri chicken last night with rusic fries and homemade coleslaw. Absolutely delicious as always. Chicken fell off the bone it was so tender. Try their burgers they are also great and the starter nibbles.More

This is one of the oldest pubs in Maidenhead. We dropped in on a fairly quiet Thursday night and had a couple of pints whist sat up at one of the barrels. Great to see a good selection of craft beers some of which are...from the local Marlow Brewery.More

The best chicken I’ve ever had! I’ve been going to the Maidens Head for years and only discovered their chicken last year and wouldn’t go elsewhere for a chicken meal. The service is brilliant, the food is out of this world and my family are...now hooked on eating here. Staff and management have a laugh, always ask how you are, very professional in what they do, it’s just a friendly environment which is always clean. If you love peri peri chicken look no further. The landlord/lady who run it are very friendly and having entertainment on Fridays and Saturday is an added bonus. There is not many pubs I can say are ‘perfect’ like I can with this one. You will not be disappointed. Lastly, your spoilt for choice of alcoholic beverages. I am proud to call this my local. Can’t wait to have chicken there again in 2023!More
