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.

It was our pleasure to enjoy a lovely meal at the Mayquay , Kinmel Bay tonight. It’s our final holiday night and the very best meal we’ve had— luscious steak with all the trimmings and fresh salad and a thick gammon steak and fluffy jacket potato all at a very reasonable price. We very pleasantly greeted, seated outdoors at our request, served promptly by staff with a great attitude and actually mad3 to feel lik3 welcome customers. The exact opposite of our experience the night before when we took the great grandsons out for tea at our caravan site pub in Towin— great serving staff and bar staff but appalling food from a very rude person working in the kitchen.

Visited whilst visiting my brother n family. Had originally booked a table for just ourselves but having found my brother and his young family were feeling safe enough to join i rang to alter the booking to accommodate us all. The staff were wonderful! The entire pub is fantastically socially distanced. With different tables in booths and adequate space. The food was fair, though my husbands gammon was extreamly salty. This did not dampen our meal. The service we recieved was superb. And as they are signed up to the "eat out to help out" scheme it enabled us all to enjoy a great 3 course meal that wouldn't break the bank. Especially after being on furlough for the past few months. It really was a welcomed treat. Many thanx to all the staff that made us feel welcome and safe! Cant wait to see you again

Booking - is needed. We were a large family. Tried calling several times with no answer but they must have been busy. My husband facebook messaged them. I got through on the phone and about an hour after that they messaged my husband back. Good amount of parking at the back of the pub. Food was good. It was dog friendly outside. We didn't have a dog with us but we seen people with them. Food was typical pub food. Our table ordered the mix grill (approximately£16), sirloin steak with chips, (approximately £15) cheese burger and chips, chicken nuggets, beans and chips, fish fingers and chips. (Approximately £5) Chocolate fudge cake and ice cream ((approximately £5) and kids ice cream (£2). We all ate it. They only have pepsi max and all the drinks are sugar free. I like to have a proper coca cola or pepsi when I go out for a meal as a treat. Also my son has autism is and is very limited in his food and drinks. I asked if they had a fruit shoot and they said yes but it wasn't a proper fruit shoot it was monster shoot or something like that. He wouldn't drink it so his brother drank it for him. For these reasons and because the kids ice cream came with sauce and sprinkles without telling us first (kids are fussy and mine refused to eat it so I ate it) is the only reasons I haven't given it 5 stars. Toilets - were clean Staff- kept checking we was ok. Friendly and nice. For anyone else going with someone with sensory needs, the pub wasn't loud. It was quiet. We ate at 5pm and sat outside.

Was staying local for a short break so booked a meal here as knew it was only a short walk from where we were but it was a big let down. Positives-We had a nice big table with a tv so the men could watch the football, staff seemed friendly enough Negatives- not a very big choice on the menu so three of us opted for ‘homemade lasagne’ which is where it all went downhill. Our lasagnes arrived on first glance it looked ok but then when I cut into it, all was revealed. It was covered with a mountain of melted cheese which was hard to get through but once I did there was hardly any sign of white sauce or any sauce for that matter as the mince beef with just dry and shrivelled up, in between sheets of soggy pasta. Basically the lasagnes were probably old, pulled from the freezer and then covered in a mountain of cheese before being microwaved to death to hide how bad it actually was and all three were the same. ( I could’ve purchased 3 better quality ready meal lasagnes for the price we paid for one, whilst money isn’t the issue I do expect something more edible for just under £10 a meal) Non of us finished the lasagne dishes infact we all ate about half of that and when the girl came to clear the plates she asked if everything was ok with the meal and we told her it wasn’t. My friends husband asked her if she’d ever tried the lasagne and pointed at it, she looked at our plates, pulled a face and said no she has ‘never had the lasagne as she said she wouldn’t eat here’ well that says it all doesn’t it if your own staff wouldn’t eat at the pub they work at. We didn’t make a fuss about it we just wanted to pay the bill and leave. We asked for the bill and was told we needed to go to the bar to pay which was ok it’s just that it’d been table service up until then. We paid at the bar and the man serving asked if everything had been ok with the meal while he was doing the payment, we told him it hadn’t and the lasagne was awful to which he did reply and ask why we hadn’t told anyone at the time which we told him we had but he just shrugged and said ‘oh well sorry’ We paid and left but I could then see all the staff having a good chat at the end of the bar about what we’d said as we walked out it’s just a shame that no one could properly apologise or acknowledge there was a problem at the time and they will lose custom because they don’t know how to deal with issues like this

Called in for a evening meal at 6pm was told they had a table for 90mins which was great. But then we sat down and went to the bar to order the meals and was told hardly anything left on the menus 3 of us ate meals were well below par. Major problems with the soft drink dispenser as no gas in the system and was given 2 completely different drinks wasn’t even asked what drinks we wanted. And my partner heard another guest complaining about the soft drinks to which the barmaid said to another well he’s not getting another one and can drink that. Then at 7pm we was constantly reminded that the table was booked out at 7.30 which we was already aware off. Very poor customer service and don’t think we’ll be back in the future. Oh just for the record I am a bar manager of 30 years experience and if my staff spoke like that to my guests then I’m afraid they wouldn’t be working for us.

Visited the mayquay bank Holiday Monday and would highly recommend it. Three of us ordered steak all cooked differently and the chef cooked them to perfection! Very generous portions even the two kids meals were great portions. The social distancing was well marked out and the staff were very nice and friendly. Would definitely recommend to anyone who wants a good meal in a great friendly atmosphere. Thank you mayquay!

Pub which has set up booths to enable everyone to be socially distanced. Good atmosphere but hindered by being told by the bar tender that by asking for a beer shandy that means a lager shandy. I explained a beer shandy means beer and was told by the bar tender that where she is from this means anything so she had started to pour lager until I reiterated my order. Food was not good, big portions but low quality and taste. Four of us ate different dishes but it was all bland and not great. I would recommend here for drinks only as other staff were friendly and all wore appropriate PPE and were helpful.

3rd visit to mayquay since lockdown but 1st for food, both times just for a drink was equally as welcoming as this evening which we had booked a table for food. All staff are very pleasant & helpful (which was also the case before lockdown) we had a starter each which came in good time then a nice break before our mains. I had the roast beef dinner which was huge,very hot & fresh. Hubby had rump steak cooked perfectly med rare,lovely big mushroom,toms & onion rings! The added bonus of getting 50% off is great but we would have been equally as happy if full price!pretty sure we spent more on drinks than food tbh.we will be coming back time & again I'm sure.xx

Bland Sunday lunch, pre cut plastic meat and tinned carrots... not nice and no flavour. Also 1 family (could have been owner/manager) as they use private staff door to take dogs in. Being served straight away before other people food there as they say down. Not good experience and won’t return.

Visited here bank holiday Monday. Well where to start. Firstly the safety measures put into place are of one of the best Iv seen While having food and drinks out all social distancing measures in place and a very clean safe place to eat. Secondly my gran struggled to walk and used a frame the staff was very attentive to her needs changing the table for us at last minute and using different exits as needed. Thirdly, the food was amazing. Even though we took advantage of the eat out to help out scheme I am definitely going to be paying them another visit I would be happy to pay full prices. We had the curry, and the fish and they was both perfect. And last, the staff was very helpful, friendly and attentive and couldn’t do enough for us. Thank you

We stay on sunnyvale and have tried to book the mayquay on several occasions but it has been fully booked. I assumed that was because it was so good, I was wrong! The place its self was clean and the staff are friendly. I ordered steak (sirloin) and chips. The steak was fatty and chewy. My husband ordered a mixed grill, cheap sausages, poor cuts of meat. My daughter ordered a roast which was awful! Frozen everything! Frozen, mash, stuffing, toasties, tinned carrots!! The turkey was sliced and dry like what you get from a microwave meal. We are booked in for Sunday for a roast...... We will be cancelling.

We booked into The Mayquay for a Christmas meal.To begin with, despite being a large group on our annual Christmas meal, the tablet was not set for Xmas, no crackers, nothing festive at all.. but never mind, maybe the food would be good. Wow, I've never been so disappointed with a meal. The turkey was processed pre-sliced meat, potatoes were hard and deep fried. Carrots were from a tin and tasted of, well, nothing more than water. The food was disgusting. My granddaughter left the table during the meal and was physically sick. Most of the plates went back with very little eaten, yet the staff did not ask how the food was. in all honesty we have eaten there before and it wasn't great then, but it is the nearest place to my ailing mother and she always seemed to like it, so we didn't complain. Yet, even my mother said she wouldn't go back as she had felt ill all afternoon. the food was poor and low quality, and was very poorly prepared, the set up showed no effort, whatsoever. The day we had chosen was quiet, we were the only group in the place, so I cant even say they were busy, all in all a complete waste of money that left us all feeling nauseous and out right disgusted.

I have been here before when I was last in wales and it was lovely so we went back. But the food was very very poor. The waitress was lovely tried to sort it out but no checks were done during the meal to be able to tell them that two meals were inedible. However she offered us drinks or desserts on the house or a full refund. We had two deserts and they were both excellent. Such a shame as I really enjoyed it last time. It was quite expensive too

We was fitted in 30 mins before closing time, had a table waiting for us as we got there - welcomed by the lovely lady behind the bar made me and my partner feel very comfortable. I had the steak and ale pie was absolutely delicious- my partner had the Sunday roast with all meats. We both finished the plate. Already said we’re making it a regular visit. All the waitresses was lovely too, checked on us when eating our food. Thank you xx
