Visited Maypole fisheries today after a 70 mile drive. Chose the Maypole as on our last visit the food etc was superb. As we approached the restaurant/shop the heavens opened and it bucketed down so seeing the restaurant is closed Mondays we weren’t looking forward to eating outside in the rain. We ordered our food and the owner must have noticed ( or overheard our remarks ) our disappointment and asked if we wanted to eat in the restaurant. Although it was closed without any prompting off us he straight away offered to open it for us and let us have a table and order drinks etc as he said he didn’t want us to have to eat outside in the rain. HOW FANTASTIC IS THAT??? We really did feel special and the friendliness was just out of the world….AS WAS THE FOOD. Cooked to perfection and served with a lovely smile from a lovely waitress who tended to our every need and was just smashing. I ordered a special fish only as I knew with the size of it I wouldn’t be able to eat anything else. I was right – it filled me up and tasted great, cooked just as I like it to be. My partner had standard meal – fish, chips with mushy peas and was full to bursting when she finished eating. Couldn’t manage a pudding afterwards – which is a pity as I’ll bet they also were 1st class. So TOP MARKS IN ALL RESPECTS to the Maypole and staff and can recommend eating there 100%.
