About The Maids Head

The Maids Head in Wicken is a traditional country pub/restaurant with a thatched roof, sitting on the village green in a beautiful unspoilt village location, a short stroll from the National Trust"s oldest Nature Reserve, Wicken Fen. We have a 60 cover restaurant and summer dining is available outside for approximetly 80 guests, on the village green or in a gated garden. All our meals are cooked fresh to order by our own team of Chef's. We try, wherever possible, to source our food locally. We offer an extensive menu including Lite-bites as well as our normal Starters, Main and Dessert courses. We also have daily Specials. In the winter we have a roaring four sided log fire in the restaurant. Private dining is available for up to 30 people with menus designed to suit your needs. We also host wedding receptions, parties, wakes etc. We can supply Marquees outside the pub on the village green for larger parties.

The food was amazing! The service was unfortunately poor, our starters were served before our first drinks and main / desert was slow after that

The service was superb we even got moved to the warmer part which we really liked. But food was 5 * plenty for your money. We have actually booked in for a couple weeks for your Sunday Roast. So we look forward to seeing you again :)

Food could be hotter. Vegetables with Sunday roast all a bit too sweet. No-one came to check if everything ok. We ordered more drinks but they did not arrive. Heater not on in marquee

We had an amazing time! Booked without knowing the pub, as visiting my daughter in Newmarket and it was the best food, service and value for money we have had in a long time. Your staff were excellent, friendly and helpful. Fully recommend.

The food was really excellent. We particularly enjoyed the prawn skewers and the steak was very tasty and cooked as requested. Gap of c45 minutes from starter plates being cleared to main courses being served was a bit excessive but service was otherwise pleasant and attentive.

Our marks would of been higher, however our table was booked for 1pm, our main meals came out at 2:40!!! Yes we had starters but wow We asked twice on our mains and was left with empty glasses for a very long time It’s a good job my partner and I can talk until the cows come home However, the team members were super busy, the food was beautiful A job well done on accommodating the new government rules also But maybe too many booking in ratio to kitchen staff

Nice atmosphere good food average drinks service was nice but we got 130 for 4 beers ;) all sorted quickly by the staff. Price wise is to expensive for what you get it's not a center of a busy town.

The lamb ragu came without any ragu sauce..clearly a mistake as it was stated on the menu as coming in a ragu. Though the waitress dealt with it well and brought some sauce over to go with it , it was a shame it happened in the first place.
