A sizzling pub that looks good on the internet but not so good when you visit.Basically a rough locals pub that is probably good for the regulars but not for newcomers.Not child friendly and not a pub to go for a meal with your family.

The Old Maypole was open when I went past on Monday 9 December 2013.
It is a Sizzling pub and three real ales are available. I didn't have time to go in and check on it but it seems OK.
I believe that the two previous comments reporting it closed have confused this pub with the Maypole in Chigwell a couple of miles away.

I had the recent pleasure of re-visiting the old maypole recently,and the pub,it's staff and it's facilities continue to impress me. i.

A couple of years ago the pub underwent a complete refurbishment into a Sizzling Pub and resteraunt,the pub is now divided into two zones,the main area is the sizzling restaraunt,where you can order some really succulant dishes such as their excellent steaks,cooked very nicely and very tasty indeed.

This part of the pub allows families to eat with their children there's pleanty of seating and is a very extensive area there is also a fully enclosed Beer Garden out the back,as well as an outside drinking space at the side.

The other part was the former Pool Room,and this is the general pub area-you can also eat food purchased from the sizzling menu here as well-this area has more seating, plasma TVs for all the sport etc,Two Pool Tables,a Darts area and a newly installed"Top of the Pops"Digital Touchscreen Jukebox-select any top 40 hit going back to 1952 and more.

I once was a regular at this pub when i used to work in the area-since my redundancy,and over the years i have seen many changes it was once a Mr Qs,an Arena pub and is now a Sizzling pub and restaraunt in the mid 90s there seems to be one thing that remains the same,that is the old Maypole continues to be run by Ray Claydon and his family,he has been here throughout all those years though I still pop back to the old maypole now and then just to see how everything is with the pub.

Another thing i forgot to mention is that they have a monday club(Including Bank Holidays)-Where you enjoy drinks such as Carling and Carlsbery at only 1.79 a pint.!!.
