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.

Took my friend for lunch on Wednesday and it was amazing. The food is fantastic so I treated the hubby to it today, and it didn’t disappoint. Been 3 times in the last fortnight. I ve had the braised steak, the scampi and today I...had chicken curry. Followed by sticky toffee pudding which was amazing. The staff are lovely too and special mention to gemma you are great at your job. See y all soonMore

First visit for lunch. The restaurant is a bit dark and dated but spotlessly clean. I think the lack of natural light added to this feel. The menu was fantastic and the waitress very welcoming and professional. Our lunch arrived piping hot and it was...very good ‘pub food’ No room for dessert as the portion was huge! Great value and although outside looks a bit bleak don’t let that stop you parking up and grabbing lunch!More

My family ate here yesterday for the first time and were pleasantly surprised. The guy with the top knot was very warm, welcoming and friendly. He went out of his way to accommodate 7 of us in the snug and was very informative on what...came with our meals. The food was very tasty and the food portions were great. Very reasonably priced- we will definitely be back.More

Driving through stopped for lunch. Very busy for a Thursday afternoon. Fixtures and fitting a bit dated and worn. Friendly atmosphere, food was tasty. Food came as ordered and as described. If about here again would return. Quite an extensive menu for a small town.
