|Booked a group in for a midweek lunch. Rather disappointing - great location and a good selection of beers and cider, but the food was poor - some dishes very over-salted, others saturated in fat.|

|My family and I met at this pub as it is between Bristol and Exeter where we live and it is not far from the M5. We arrived to notice that the Sunday Carvery was advertised at a different price outside the pub and on the internet to the inside. When I questioned this I was met with a frosty and defensive reply and was told 'it's only a pound difference'. There were 6 in our group, meaning the total bill would be £6 more... in these tough times, not to be sniffed at! Had the food been worth the price we would have been satisfied, but although the meat was cooked beautifully, the vegetables left a lot to be desired. They were overcooked and cold and the gravy was very thin. I am a vegetarian and the option was a rather unusual half a butternut squash roasted with feta cheese, rosemary and garlic. Unfortunately this was bland and the lumps of cooked feta cheese didn't go well together. Our puddings were very tasty, but unfortunately they weren't piping hot as we would have liked. The service was poor and we regularly had to leave our seats to ask staff for further drinks, the bill and when we wanted to pay the bill, the card machine! I would definately not go to the maypole again and won't be recommending to friends or family.|

I smell a rat, Roland's about. Honestdoug, Loveseggs anontaunton & cmere cannot be considered bone fide commentators.

|The Maypole is a wonderful family friendly pub, with a great selection of good food which caters really well for little ones (great to see some "healthy" options on there for them too!).|
The staff are always welcoming and helpful, and the beer garden in the summer is just fantastic! Well recommended.

|Just popped in for a pint this lunchtime 8/2/11. Pub quiet but it was just 12 noon. Lovely welcome from the waitress. Exmoor dark, otter and a stout on(think it was Sharps) all on hand pump. I/2 a dark and 1/2 a stout both went down very well, and a pack of very nice Bar King Nuts? Never had them before but they were so nice I kept the packet.|
Works out to be £3.05 a pint which is still good value for a drive to pub, and I think its worth it.
Just as I was leaving I saw some food coming from the kitchen, looked nice and steaming hot.
Maybe next time a spot of lunch too!
