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.

Went here on Saturday for a small family birthday celebration - 6 adults and 4 children. They put us in a back room with another family party whihc worked well as we didn't have to worry about the children disturbing other diners. There's an outdoor...play area whihc is fenced in and was ideal for occupying the children till the food was ready. We all ate off the set lunch. Only had 2 courses (£20) as I'd brought a birthday cake and they were happy for us to bring it in and gave us plates and a knife. All made for a relaxing and enjoyable experience.More

A mid-week lunch. Excellently cooked and presented. The chefs are artists of the taste buds. Surprisingly busy and there were apparent staff shortages, but the meals were worth the wait.

Decided to treat ourselves to Xmas Day lunch out for the 1st time. We have visited twice before for Sunday lunch. Although it was busy service was good the staff were welcoming and helpful. Our meal was excellent , food was very tasty especially the...Turkey and the gravy. Our only problem was struggling to finish the lovely desserts as we were full after the 1st 2 courses, I was unable to finish mine. Would have been nice to have a 2 course option. Thank you for a lovely meal.More

An excellent range of ales and a very good meal. Obviously very popular as the car park was full and the place packed - on a Tuesday evening. Enough said.

Celebrated my birthday here today with a Sunday roast with my family, husband, adult children and partners and baby grandson. Very accomodating allocating us a table with room for the pram. Excellent service with efficient and polite waiting staff. Amazing food, absolutely not disappointed at...all. Have visited for a weekday lunch in the past and would not hesitate to return. They have lots of events advertised which I have not attended but would definitely consider doing so in the future.More

Lovely pub and food good but the paella although it looked fabulous didn’t have much taste and was quite bland. Fish and chips was good though.

Lovely, friendly gem in the Nottinghamshire countryside. Food & service are both fabulous. Dog friendly & the menu has both pub favourites plus options you wouldn't cook yourself at home.

The food was not great, and it was so cold that I ate wrapped up in a scarf. It took a long, long time to thaw out when we returned home. The waiter told us the owner had decreed there was to be no heating...until November - by then most of the diners could have died from exposure. The crayfish and prawn starter was OK, and the pork and bakewell tart were acceptable. The salmon had not been deboned properly, and it was not possible to find the battered fish under a very thick layer of batter, with old batter stuck underneath. The steak pie was edible, but not good. Perhaps the worst thing of all was the bread and butter pudding which resembled and tasted as bad as a slab of lard - absolutely appalling. Definitely not an experience to be repeated, and the worst meal I have ever eaten.More

We’ve been here occasionally in the past and went last night for a birthday celebration with the family of 4 + 5 year old. It’s a lovely place in an attractive village. We went 5.30pm and there is an early bird menu before 6.30 with...a 2 or 3 course fixed price menu. The choice is a little limited but sensible selection of dishes and we all found something we wanted. Service was friendly and prompt. Staters we had were basically a fancy prawn cocktail, one having pate. Mains were sea bass, pork for 2 of us, one having liver. All dishes were really excellent, far superior to what we expected, cooked and presented perfectly. We cannot fault any aspect of the evening.More

I would like to start this with the fact that I know some family members have had great meals here! We called to check if there was a gluten free menu as two members of the party (including myself) require gluten free options We were...told they could accommodate this I checked again when ordering drinks and was told by the waitress that not to worry most things could be adapted as gluten free. When ordering I checked if the things I had ordered could be adapted to be gluten free and was told again no problem (burger with no bun and a starter) The waiter then came out of the kitchen and was told none of my order could be adapted… this continued twice with different order options and I just gave up and ordered something that I knew could be gluten free from the get go. There were multiple other problems The other gluten free member of the parties food didn’t come out until everyone else had almost finished eating and whilst we were waiting for it the waitresses stood in full sight laughing and looking over. Not once were we checked on or apologised too, they were less than attentive. After everyone has finished and it was time to pay the bill another waitress came over to apologise There are no allergen makers on the menu full stop. None for gluten/nuts/egg/dairy Which I’m sure by law they now have to have on the menu What is more dangerous is that the staff seem to care very little and have very little knowledge about allergens… this is something that if got wrong could severely hurt or even kill a person. Either you need to train your staff in allergens or mark the menu when allergens are present for the safety of your customers! Called the landlady of the pub to discuss afterwards and she was less than interested and didn’t seem like she wanted to discuss the issue we had with the allergens not being visible on the menu/lack of knowledge with staff around allergens It would have not been an issue if when we called prior that we were told they couldn’t accommodate us.. we would have chosen to eat elsewhere but they were more than happy prior to the booking to accept us with our GF issues. So avoid if you have any allergic reactions or allergies with food. Will not be returningMore

We had Sunday lunch here while staying in the area. Gorgeous country pub, with great service and fantastic food. The roasts were beautiful and between the 6 of us we sampled the beef, pork and chicken. Desserts were delicious with the brownie and Bakewell tart...being favourite! As a party of 6 adults and 1 ten month old infant we were taken care of really well, from booking to paying the bill! Our only grumble would be the baby changing facilities are only available in the ladies toilets, so my son in law was unable to undertake the task!More
