Set in the heart of Suffolk, award-winning Maxine's Restaurant Surrounded by the beautiful countryside, using locally sourced produce, Maxine's in Bury St Edmunds serves flavoursome modern British dishes, all day long.
The Maxine's House menu is full of sumptuous but comforting choices. Warm partridge breast with fig and redcurrant jelly and bacon brioche is a favourite among the starters, alongside smoked halibut with smoked salmon and prawns. Main courses include the medallion of monkfish with tagliatelle and mussels in a curried coriander sauce.
The desserts are another story, with a whole separate list of gluten-free options. Try the coffee, pecan and salted caramel choux buns or gluten-free sticky toffee pudding with ginger ice cream for an indulgent third course at Maxine's near Bury St Edmunds.
Enjoy a drink in the cosy lounge before dinner, or a cup of coffee after lunch. Aside from Maxine's restaurant, guests also have the option to eat in the spa, which has its own separate menu. Bury St Edmunds is a 10-minute drive away.

We had breakfast and afternoon tea. The pain au chocolate was fabulous, soft flaky pastry - l ordered another one! Afternoon tea was one of the best afternoon teas l have ever had and l have tried many! The ham in the sandwich was so tasty, we both commented on it. The scone were large, super fresh and a absolutely delicious. Service with a smile and nothing too much.

Nice ambience, good service and comfortable environment. Wasn’t overly comfortable with the colour of some of the chicken in my chicken and mayonnaise jacket potato, but just left it.

The staff were lovely, very polite and friendly. The service was excellent, but we were disappointed by the quality and availability of the food. Some options on the menu were not available at the time we booked, which was frustrating for one of our party, who has a very restricted diet (for medical reasons). The bread for the sandwiches was almost stale, and it looked as though the kitchen was running out of certain fillings, as some sandwiches were more bread than anything else! Considering the price of the food, we expected much much better. I'd give the staff five stars, but the food really isn't up to scratch.

Server at the bar (supervisor, I think) was almost impossible to hear, and I had to take my tea back and ask for a new one when I realised she had not given me decaff as requested (pregnancy dictates decaff!) - she swapped it without a fuss. Food was great, although I was disappointed there was no seafood option (tuna, prawn mayo, etc) for the jacket potatoes. Foccacia was excellent, sourdough slightly stale. Friend had mezze platter without bread but was disappointed there were no stuffed vine leave available. Otherwise her food was great. My mocktail was large and tasty, but we asked for a large glass of Prosecco for my friend and ended up with a champagne flute full. Mostly great although definitely a few tweaks to make to improve to five star service.

It took 25 minutes to have our order taken and then I had to ask the waiter to take it. We also ordered tea which never came. The food was good when it did arrive. The restaurant was not busy (3 other couples) so no excuse for tardiness.

Really enjoyed my brunch. Very good breakfast menu. Poached eggs on gluten free toast was excellent. And the decaf latte was also really good. I sat in a sunny window and highly enjoyed it. Staff were very friendly, polite and helpful.
