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.

Our first visit yesterday we both had the “small” cod and chips!! Small it definitely is NOT! It was absolutely delicious. The cod was fresh and white and the batter was heavenly. The chips were lovely too. Would highly recommend this lovely little chippy. Lovely...staff too.More

Been here many times and the food is good. However I was disappointed today as when I arrived for lunch I was told they had ' run out of food ' and that they close at 2 pm . It was just before 1. 55...pm and I appreciate I had left it late , however , I noticed there were sausages available but it seems they didn't want to cook any fresh chips. I will not be going there again but must say all the staff are very pleasant but today I felt let downMore
