Hey Conor, I'm really sorry to hear about your bad experience. There is absolutely no excuse for rudeness or bad service. Can I ask what Maggie Mays you were in and when ? Just so we can deal with this issue and prevent it from happening again. Thank you for your feedback, Meghann More

We went for brunch on Saturday - had to wait about 15 mins for a table because it was so packed - testament to how good the place is. Great atmosphere and the decor is lovely. We sat in a booth. I had a smarties milshake which was to die for! French toast and bacon was delish too. Will definitely... More

A nice place to grab a bite to eat at any time of the day really. I've been here regularly and haven't had a bad experience. The food is lovely and great value with great service in a casual relaxed environment. Probably best for a bite to eat at lunch time however due to popularity and size of the place... More

This is clearly a popular place and was always busy when we went past. We didn't have to queue for a table (but we did see others queuing afterwards) but I can see why. The food was cheap but that did not compromise the standard whatsoever. It was delicious and the portions were large. I will be going back when... More

Everytime I go here for lunch, I get a new milkshake to try them all! They are very tasty and a large serving size. The food is quite okay. But for the price, it is a great place to have a lunch. It is always very busy so prepare for a wait!

We had a nice morning walk from the Europa hotel down to this lovely little restaurant for breakfast. We had a veggie fry (a normal British breakfast without the meat) and a yummy omelette. Over breakfast we watched as all freshly baked goods for the day were delivered by the baker! We didn't have room left to try any so... More

Visited here on 1st Jan for breakfast and I can only assume that the staff members on shift drew the short straw for working. Miserable does not even come close. Were grunted at when we first came in and menus threw on the table. The tables are definitely not big enough for 4 so it was pretty uncomfortable but I... More

Whether you're hanging like Saddam post-lever pulling or starving like one of those Greek monks in the middle of a fast (c'mon lads, we've all been there! Even the overdraft hits a limit when all you've eaten for four days is ready made 'lasagna' or porridge). Maggie May's will honestly keep you going! Their food is priced better than broom... More
