Having been to The Maynard Arms a couple of times before and enjoyed the food I was disappointed this recent time.
We were a party of three wanting to have lunch and few drinks. Beer and wine choices were all good. The food however was really disappointing. We chose to have the small plates to share. The crab cakes were really bitter and inedible, Whitebait was drowned in paprika so too strong. The other dishes to be honest were just bland, apart from the beetroot dip which was lovely. Some of the other dishes are overpriced, a camembert for two to share is over £13 ! Also.we saw the fish and chips being served, the fish was a either overcooked or cooked in dirty oil as completely brown.
Staff were friendly and helpful. However there were lots of children running around which wasn't the best vibe.
By later in the afternoon the atmosphere was much better. We did have a good time but not sure if I'd rush back.

I'm not grumpy but the whole restaurant was full of children who where running around. The food was very average. It's good for a drink in the bar though.

Chicken seemed underdone and slightly pinkish. Bacon hard and chewy. Not impressed with the food tho' I like sitting in the garden.

The food was lovely although there were some items missing from the roast dinner that we ordered. When the bill came we noticed that there had been additional items added to our bill which we nearly paid for, it was lucky that we noticed last minute before paying and asked to have them removed.

The place is nice though and the food was lovely, I would put our experience down to the staff negligence on the day.

Went for a father's day dinner and had some delicious croquettes followed by an excellent steak. The people working there were very friendly and accommodating. Most importantly, my dad absolutely loved it.

Maynard's Arms is a lovely pub in Crouch End. It's more pricey than the other pubs in the neighborhood, but it is a nice space and the quality of food is excellent. It'd be good to see a better variety of veggie options.

As eight friends and I met for lunch, I worried at first about meeting all their varied foodie needs. I had little cause for my worry, we were in the right place...The Maynard. Generous, delicious portions of food, good selection of seasonal dishes and puddings to die for!
Thank you for helping old friends feel warmly welcomed and well fed!

So disappointed with the Sunday lunch. Waited for over an hour for our main after actually a really good starter, but then things were cold and both under and over cooked (raw carrots, bone dry potatoes). Won’t be going again. Really sad as it’s our local! Staff were absolutely lovely.

The portions were meagre especially the fish and the roast potatoes, which is strange because they are literally as cheap as chips, and the chips were under cooked. The roast chicken had probably been left to stand since lunch (we were there at 7pm) because it was dry. If your going to serve left-overs in the evening charge accordingly.

Thank you Maynard Arms team for a wonderful New Year's Eve! We had a perfect evening, our table location was ideal, the food and drink delish, staff SO friendly and helpful - they really could not have done better - music choices perfect for a mixed ages crowd, atmosphere so happy! We ate, drank, danced; absolutely loved the evening!

We'll be back for quieter evenings, Sunday lunches, our usual drinks get togethers during 2018.

Great service even though the fish wasn't great the staff were very apologetic. My burger was amazing, so even though the fish was just a little bit soggy because of the service and friendliness of the staff I would definitely go back again.

This is a nice pub with a good dining area but in this occasion I didn't have a great lunch.

We ordered a main course when it wasn't that busy and waited nearly an hour for it. When it came the beef was cold and the rest of the food tasted like it had been cooked a while ago and then reheated. We asked for the beef to be warmed and when it came back the plate was hot but the beef still cool.

We were offered a free pudding. I ordered the cheese and the soft cheese had just come out of the fridge and was rock hard. I may sound fussy but if you are going to have a selection of cheeses you need to serve them properly.

Our waitress was very apologetic This was more an issue of the kitchen.

I was disappointed with the service and food at the Maynard on this occasion. I frequent this venue constantly and always enjoy my time there. The food is usually amazing. Unfortunately this time the service was shocking in the restaurant, to the point where we had to go up to the bar to buy drinks. The food took almost 30 minutes to come out and was far smaller in portion size than other times I've had roast there. Overall it turn us off coming here for roast in the future.

The two roasts we had were lukewarm and tasted frozen/reheated. It was barely edible. The bill came out wrong and had to be corrected twice. I would recommend for drinks but not Sunday lunch.

Well very disappointing. Meal took almost an hour to arrive. Ordered food for children but they had run out of fish and chips (early lunchtime). Ordered burgers for the children only one arrived, they had run out, so one had a vege burger. Ordered a well done beef but it came rare and had to be sent back. As a way of apology for poor service and lack of food we were offered ice cream for the children. Only one arrived. We asked for the other one and a very small bowl came compared with the large bowl given to child 1. To their credit we didn't end up paying but very embarrassing to take family there for a treat having told them how great it was. I don't think they were coping with the large numbers of customers.

Dining at the Maynard was a so so experience. It's very loud in the main bar and the restaurant is round the back so quieter but with zero atmosphere. The food was ok, quite pricey for what it was (burger was actually two thin ones so no medium on offer, fries were small and a bit burnt), dessert was ok but unmemorable, Him Indoors' fish was ok. Wouldn't rush back.

Six of us had dinner here on Saturday night. It's too expensive for pub food, and not quite good enough to be a restaurant in my opinion. Service was friendly but a bit hit and miss (no greeting on arrival, had to ask for water several times before it arrived). I don't really approve of paying £14 for a burger, and they were out of fries as well (er, cut up some potatoes perhaps?). Toilets were an utter hell-hole.
