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.

Food was nice but we got there for New Year’s Eve despite our messenger booking it wasn’t written in the book so our table wasn’t ready. Unfortunately we left without puddings and more drinks as we couldn’t find any staff. On leaving and paying behind...the bar we saw them all sat on a table in the corner having a drinkMore

The meal was excellent…cannot fault it at all. My entire Group felt that the atmosphere created by some of the staff was far from welcoming. Sadly, meal 10/10 but customer service 3/10. Such a shame as it’s a great location.

We are regular dinners at the Turks Head, but on this occasion very disappointed with the prices to say the least. Love the Cottage Pie around £12.50 good price, but was told only had Shepherds Pie on menu £18.50 🤦‍♀️. Yes I understand lamb is...a lot more expensive but really £18.50.😳😳More

We visited with two very large dogs, and the staff couldn’t have been more helpful. We arrived about three thirty, and had the carvery, and it was exceptional. It also wasn’t bad value for money. We would certainly return.

We are no strangers to Weymouth or the area of this establishment yet we had no knowledge of it until a recommendation from a family member . We tried calling prior to book a table but there was no answer so we decided to head...over there as it’s not far from where we were staying. On arrival we asked for a table and the first the member of staff we met with was rather dismissive and told us they were fully booked and couldn’t possibly fit us in even though there were empty tables. I did explain we’d tried calling ahead but no none had responded. My wife again asked given it was half empty and another member of staff had a look at the bookings and found us table that we could have for a couple of hours which was more than enough time for us so we were seated and opted for the carvery . The meat , vegetables and gravy were all of very good quality and tasted absolutely delicious! They didn’t skimp on the portions like some places have previously dined at. While we were dinning the venue started to fill up and we also noted they offered a take away option which seemed to be very popular which also made us wonder why the first member of staff who wasn’t interested in accepting our custom did not at least offer this to us , further customer focused training required perhaps ! It was very reasonably priced when taking into account we also both had drinks with our meals . The venue itself was clean , tidy and had a great ambiance and from what could tell is a very old building which added to its charm. We’d happily dine there again and I’m willing to over look the rather dismissive attitude of the first staff member we encountered as the second one was the complete opposite in terms of their approach to customer service which I commented on before we left.More
