We visited the Maggs Thai Restaurant at The Long Man for lunch and certainly didn’t leave disappointed. The pub itself is a large building and inside feels very traditional. Whether being there for dinner or lunch you can choose your pick of tables within the very large exterior, although you are also able to eat outside as the pub also caters for this.
Within The Long Man is its real hidden gem, Maggs Thai Restaurant, which offers a delightful range of Thai food at very reasonable prices.
On our visit I ordered the Drunken Noodles, which is wok fried flat noodles with veg and chilli, while my wife ordered the Yellow Curry, which is a coconut based dish. Both dishes cost £5 each, which when added to the Coke and Diet Coke we added came out at the reasonable cost of £13.95.
Once my Drunken Noodles arrived I was quite pleased with the portion size. It was smaller than the standard portion, which usually comes with a choice of meats or tofu for vegetarians, but we had instead opted for the lunch menu at £5 which strips the meal of these options and gives you a slightly smaller, but still reasonably sized portion.
Tasting the Drunken Noodles gave me a flavour explosion which I haven’t had in quite a while, I have to say that the flavour was pretty outstanding. The spice was just right, while there was also a distinct and unmistakable Thai flavour. I’d heard good things about Maggs Thai food and after one taste I could see why. It’s fair to say that the contents of my plate didn’t hang around too long.
This was only a short visit for lunch, but you can bet that me and my family will be returning in the future to try out more dishes.
