Really delicious food. Shared a whole sea bream which was some of the best fish I have eaten. Service was very charming but not quite enough attention to detail. Didn’t detract though. Had a v good evening and will definitely be back.

Gorgeous pub. Ground floor area much nicer for a pub experience. Being dog friendly gets bonus points! The wine serving was not consistent, you get better servings at the bar. The food was not consistent either, chicken and lamb to share was great, but the roast beef is literally only one slice - not good value. Service was spotty, floor manager was great, the rest never bothered to come to the table. It is not cheap!

We had the most delicious meal (really, sublime!). This is the first time I have eaten there and I was truly impressed by the care taken of the ingredients and the cooking. The Cretan wine was also delicious. We are very lucky to have this as a local. Well done all at Hero of Maida.

Slow service when not that busy, food was great when it arrived but a little on the mean side when it came to accompaniments. Staff seemed a little out of their depth. Overall nice pub, just need to be more attentive.
