Came here regularly prior to lockdown, so was looking forward to coming back for a delicious burger experience. Unfortunately that’s not what I got this visit. Sat outside, tables not spaced as much as other restaurants nearby and no staff wearing masks. Chicken burger came...in 2 minutes, it’s usually cooked fresh, so they must be reheating in microwave now. Chicken was overcooked and tough. Complained before I left and was given free cocktail. From next week waiters will have to wear masks by law, but I won’t be returning to this restaurant again any time soon. Have eaten at a few restaurants very recently and the Covid compliance has been excellent. Such a shame that a lovely place like this was showing no regard to customers safety as well as horrible food.More

Took the children for lunch, the staff were very friendly and welcoming. We had a very tasty Baby Ribs and The Freakshakes for dessert, these are bigger than what you may think!! Nice cocktails too!! Can't wait for another meal soon!

We were very impressed by all aspects of our visit to Maxwell’s. The service was excellent, the speed with which our orders were taken and brought out, and the bill when we requested it, was very quick... but the food is the main event here....My boyfriend had the Cheesebomb burger and I had the Nachos Fondita. Well, I tried. This was the first establishment I’ve visited where “Suitable for 2 people sharing” was actually accurate, but they were so tasty I was determined to fit in as many as possible. I also made the most of the happy hour cocktails and tried the Bailey’s Banana Colada which was so tasty I ordered a second instead of dessert. I can’t fault anything about this restaurant and look forward to going back as soon as we can.More

Although the surrounding area was very quiet by comparison, Maxwells was busy and a good atmosphere was developing. We had a very friendly greeting on arrival and were given a choice of seating. Our waiter was very friendly and not rushing us to choose food...and drinks. Our choices arrived in good time. The food was well presented and drinks nicely mixed. A good lunchtime meal and pleasant service made Maxwells somewhere to return to.More

Maxwell's opens at noon. I presume that the lunch menu is available until at least 3pm, but there is no specified time.
