Amazing team, beautiful pub in a lovely village. Tonight they had Lisa Martin singing as Adele and Karen Carpenter! And she was absolutely brilliant. Will definitely come again, especially if she is singing!

What can we say, excellent service, lovely food and a friendly atmosphere. Hannah (palindrome), our waitress, was brilliant and made us feel very welcome as first time visitors to The Maypole. Best place we’ve been in a while.

Had a beautiful lunch in the garden. Great options on the menu, cooked to perfection. Really delicious wine options. Overall great value. All the staff are lovely and accommodating with a positive and relaxed atmosphere. Faultless.

Was very impressed with the amazing spread put on for a funeral I recently attended at the Maypole. Made very welcome and the place is very clean and has a lovely garden area. Would definitely recommend for functions, just a drink or a lovely meal.
