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.

Awful pub. Came in on christmas eve. Horrid atmosphere from the start, walked into it being eerily quiet despite there being a working speaker system in the pub, tv’s etc. purchased our first pint 3 hours before close and a fella came up to us...(me and my 2 friends) and told us to leave, sarcasticly saying: “I’m sure you lot are having a great time but the servers deserve a christmas so I suggest you drink up and make haste” !!!! Dont open if you dont want to be open ?!!!!! Also got our order wrong despite the place being completely empty. Not to mention it is filthy. Avoid at all costs. Horrible customer service.More

Place always empty. Each time a new temp who does not have a clue how to use tv or anything else. Lots of promises about food that never come true. No food at all. Today what was the limit was having to sit there listening...to the latest temp talking to customers about all the violence he had been involved in. Quite how the owners think this place can survive in rich shardlow beggars belief.More

Popped in on Bank Holiday Monday early evening for a drink. Sat outside and were probably the only people using the premises at the time. Thought this was due to it being the end of a busy long weekend. Sat outside and was surprised at...how uncared for the seating area appeared to be. There were cigarette ends by the 100s everywhere both in the rear yard and at the front of the property also discarded doggie poo bags strewn in a flower pot at the front. Walked past again the following evening and no attempt had been made to clear up from the previous day. Empty crisp packets still littered the tables from the previous day along with the cigarette Stubbs Why would someone go to the effort to open the doors to a place like this when they appear to have little or no reason to care for the outside of the premises . Shame guys as with a little more love and care could be a great place in the village . Please have a clean up.More

Good grub, friendly staff but certainly brings in a rowdy crowd lol. There didn’t seem to be any social distancing outside or, at least, the other customers were not adhering to what the pub is asking.

Dropped by this amazing pub the other day. They are taking all steps to ensure safety within this pub with a trace and track sign in desk at the start. All tables are well distanced and everyone is keeping to there areas. WELL DONE!! Staff...are really friendly and polite. We ordered drinks from outside and they arrived quickly and I was even able to pay at the table. Little burger van on site doing some large burgers 🍔 Was very busy and even selling patterned face mask. Will highly recommend and return soon.More

We called for drink in the beer garden with my hubby, son, daughter in law and my 18month old granddaughter. How unfriendly was this guy, too interested in his family and getting them food from the van in the car park. Upon leaving my son...realised he had left his change on the table, when he returned the guy was at the table and said what’s he told him he had left his change. The guy then said there was only £3.50 when there was £13.50 but too our shock he then went to his son and ask him for the £3???? Dodgy or what, someone of that behaviour should not be employed. As to say on our next visit to Shardlow we will definitely miss this pub out.More
