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.

Fantastic food in a lovely pub / restaurant. There was 10 of us and they served us perfectly. The staff could not be more lovely and helpful especially Alex and Naomi.

Had a lovely Sunday lunch with my grandson. Its in a lovely village with views across the fields. We had roast dinner, but there was a large menu to choose from. The food came out piping hot and was delicious. Amelia our waitress was attentive...and very pleasant, understanding my grandsons needs. I would highly recommend this pub/restaurant, but to ensure you get a table, good idea to book. Ample parking and on a cold day the venue was lovely and warm.More

Another great meal here. Busy on a Tuesday which you love to see. In spite of many busy tables, great service from Alex & Robyn. Wood fired pizzas are delicious!

Our server Naomi was excellent! Very welcoming and helpful when it came to a few dietary requirements and she went above and beyond to make sure there would be no issues with the food. Great atmosphere and would definitely recommend this restaurant.

We had a lovely Sunday lunch. The service by Amelia was first rate, and the food delicious. The atmosphere was nice and buzzy, but still relaxed. They’re so accommodating for young families - the kids’ menu is fab.
