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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Our local where we often eat lunch or dinner. Lovely staff and good service as always. They now have a chef trained in Indian food. Tonight’s prawn buns was superb. Rich well seasoned sauce with a good helping of king prawns. I hope he will...offer more curries this winter. Yes, more curries on each week or so. Tonight’s was a king prawn dupiaza, the best yet.More

We visited here on the off chance and a recommendation. Went with another couple and dined in the main restaurant and I can say it was well worth the vista we have a great evening and a fabulous meal. One negative point was every time...the main doors opened we got a gush of cold air. Otherwise a perfect visit.More
