Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Recently re-opened after lockdown the RBL has used the down time wisely,carrying out refurbishments,widening the menu and stocking the locally produced Moonlight beer.
Although it is a club, visitors are made very welcome and this is an excellent place to eat and drink away from the seafront.Families are welcome in the restaurant,the menu is wide enough for most tastes and the food is very good.

We moved to Swanage nearly 6 years ago now and some of our highlights of our time here has been the great welcome we received from Elmo (Dave) and his lovely team. Whether you’re looking for a snack or meal Ash is ‘the’ chef in Swanage. He uses fab local produce at very reasonable prices which is always excellent.
You don’t have to be a member to enjoy their hospitality.

Every time I go to the Swanage RBL I am disappointed .I have heard either the head chef or manager bullying his young staff a few times when he thinks the customers are not listening and I suppose that`s why so many staff are changing all the time.I think if you are Gordon Ramsay and famous people think he is eccentric when he is bully staff but he pays them good money but the RBL chef pays the lowest wage to students and they leave the club in a few weeks after starting when they get fed up with the abuse.
The food is not bad but I could see one of the staff was sneezing all the time and I hope it was just hayfever.
I only go to this club because my partner is member and can`t afford to go to better restaurants .
