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.

What a fantastic pub!! We all had a fantastic day/night in here. The atmosphere was fantastic and everyone was friendly. Whether they were staff working, or visitors from afar.
The beer’s on offer were brilliant!! Fantastic selection!! We were even allowed to bring our take away food in (for when we got home) after a very enjoyable day!! Keep up the good work! 👍🏻

The owner is a rude bully. All the staff are rude about people in the town, walked into them talking about me for no reason. Culture of judgemental gossip. The people who frequent it however are nice people.

As you can see from the rest of the reviews this is seriously out of character. I find it unfair that people who get themselves barred for certain behaviour have the right to leave false reviews.

Horribly rude landlady ( I assumed she was the landlady) As a non-local I was asked to remove myself from the property as I had a Chinese carry out meal (in a plastic bag) that was ‘smelling the place out’. The landlady (blonde hair and glasses) approached me and asked me to remove the offending meal from the chair that it was placed on. It was placed on the chair awaiting me leaving to go home to eat it and I had to accept that she wanted me out of the pub. Imagine my surprise when I returned about 20 mins later and a local had his Chinese takeaway sat on the bar in front of the landlady!!!!! One rule for them, another rule for visitors.
Obviously a local pub for local people (who were almost all smashed on drink/drugs). As a visitor I would avoid and take your money over the road to either the Hotel or the pub on the corner - The Crown and Cushion. Decent atmosphere, lovely staff and great food.
Avoid the ‘local’ pub with its banging music - too loud to chat, and rude landlady.
Will not be back.

This review isn't even worth a read. Take your Chinese to the crown and cushion and see how long you can sit in there for 👍 You don't take food into a pub. As for the rest I find it extremely rude to insinuate that people are "smashed" on drugs and referring to locals as 'them'. As you can see the review is massively out of character.

Loved this pub. Girls spa day and wandered into town afterwards. Really friendly staff and customers. Big plus amazingly clean toilets! Would highly recommend for a friendly drink in a very comfortable environment.

Been coming here over the last few months
What can I say it’s turned into a home from home
Lovely friendly atmosphere with a great mix of locals and travellers
They don’t serve food they do crisps and different flavours lol
The staff are fantastic
One stand out is the lovely Gemma ( she has to stand on a crate to see over bar ) the lovely smile is worth the entry fee alone and she does table service ( it’s not that type of bar lol )
Great pub
It’s dog friendly and my Labrador loves it think he knows how to get there without me
How pubs should be

Nice quaint little pub in the center of the picturesque town of Appleby! Cozy corners and great selection of beer next to open log fires.
