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.

Popped in for a meal and a few drinks. The staff welcomed us in and were so attentive to all our needs. The food was great, quick service and offering to take orders from our table not just using an app really made a difference! Thank you, we will be returning!

This is the first time we have visited and wow!! how amazing is this pub/restaurant. We were greeted by a very friendly staff member, who advised us how to order etc. we found a lovely table and then I ordered our food and drink from the bar. Again the staff member that took my order was lovely and accommodating of my sons food choice. When the food arrived, it was piping hot and absolutely delicious. We shall definitely be back again. Thank you to all the lovely staff x

Called in for a Hot Chocolate and a Full English with my daughter today. We were served by Kieran who made us a lovely hot chocolate and our breakfast was delicious, as always. We always come to Canutes for our breakfast if we can as it’s so tasty 😀

Went In on Sunday to watch the football with some family members and was happily surprised! Some of the local football lads were in so the atmosphere was good but what shocked me the most was how great the service was, for a pub in a small town I was delighted with how welcoming they were with everyone. All staff were friendly but Imogen really stood out for us, was laughing with us and constantly making sure we were having a good time. Was amazing service and we will be happy to return - many thanks from the noisy northerners

Just a quick stop by The Canute this afternoon for a quick snack. A nice bowl of large onion rings only £2.29! They came out hot, crispy round the edges with soft hot onion inside. Very delicious!!! Accompanied by a pint of their newest ale ‘believe in your elf’ by Banks’s, tasted and smelt perfect! Really good Cask Marque. Christmas decorations looks fabulous! Couldn’t fault the staff they were very polite yet again, hannah was very helpful and attentive. Thanks again for a lovely visit!

Visited this pub on Sunday for some drinks and food with friends. Was pleasantly surprised at the quality of service. We were greeted and seated in a booth with a tv in it. The lovely young lady Imogen came up to us and took our drinks order and brought them over while we looked at the menu. Made such a difference to being back and forth from the bar. The food was great, the steak was cooked beautifully and the fish and chips also looked well done. The atmosphere was enjoyable with a lot in for the football. Plenty of TV’s to see it from too. The pub was spacious and clean and the staff couldn’t do enough for us. Thank you for a lovely afternoon

We went to The Canute for the first time today and I must say the breakfast was first class and great value. Service was provided by Chris and Imogen who were very friendly and attentive. Pete and Matt did an excellent job in the kitchen. Will definitely be going back.

Went last weekend with friends for a night out. Place has been done up a little and looks amazing for what it’s worth. Drinks were cheap in comparison to most places and we were told told about deals on shots all night so it kept us coming back. Management were fantastic, Imogen was very bubbly and was getting along with all customers from what I could see, was nice to see a manager that gets involved and works hard instead of just telling staff what to do!! Will definitely be visiting again soon, Thankyou to Imogen and the team for a lovely night out, hope to see you all shortly :))

Always love coming in to canutes when I come back to Gainsborough to visit, drinks are cheap and service is always fast and amazing. Imogen the deputy manager there can never do enough for us, always smiling and friendly, really makes it a lovely experience and talks us into doing the quiz when it's on. Would recommend this place to anyone.

Visited Canutes this week. Greeted at the door with a warm welcome and taken to a table with disposable menus which is great with the covid going on at the moment! Everybody in the pub walking round with masks on also which is good to see. Order was taken, drinks came straight away and food came fast, hot and presented great. I had gammon and couldn’t fault it!!! Staff very polite, Toilets and pub both really clean so I will definitely be returning, thank you!

Went for a night pout with the girls and ended up in Gainsborough as one of my friends lives there. She had told me not to expect much as it is such a small town. We went into the Canute and i was very shocked at how good it was. We wanted cocktails and the manager i think his name was Steven was so helpful. He told us about all the offers on cocktails and that they can make them in towers!!! We ordered a Key west cooler tower and it was brilliant. Very reasonably priced and looked and tasted amazing. We went in for one drink and ended up spending our night there. Great service, great cocktails and very Covid safe!

Great food and drink, absolutely love coming here for a late dinner with the girls and then some cheeky drinks, and if we're lucky we'll catch it on a karaoke or DJ night! Such a great place with great service. I got served by an lovely server called Katherine last time I went. Such fast service. Highly recommend.

Love coming to Canutes, always enjoy the atmosphere and the things they have on to offer. Great food deals and drink deals.. Carling for £2 John Smiths for £1.75… no brainer. They have beer pong on a Friday which is always a great laugh and something to do with the night. The DJ at the weekend plays great music and there’s a wide range of cocktails that I’m still working my way through trying them all but all I’ve had so far I’ve loved. Definitely worth popping in if you’re in town
