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.

They advertise that they serve food and offer all sorts of deals on food through the week, like 2 mains for £15.50 and Fish and Chip Friday but the reality is that it's hit or miss, two weeks on the trot I've been in for...food now on a Friday evening and both times disappointed, first time we arrived at 730 to be told they stopped at 7 so the next time we arrived at 630 to be told the kitchen was overwhelmed and couldn't take our food order. An okay pub if you just want a pint, the end!More

Lovely staff, always friendly and welcoming. Excellent service. The food is great and not too pricey either with a good selection of vegetarian/vegan options if required. Come here often but was blown away by the service on Valentine’s Day. Tables were laid beautifully and provided...with table service which is not usually done. 10/10 recommend.More

Mixed feelings about this place. Servers were great to us but not as nice to some others in my party. Food was pre booked but the manager didn't actually confirm it (apparently had tried, I call bull). Went in at lunch time, no soap in...ladies toilets. £4.40 for a pint of coke (London prices in Bishopsworth??) Food was extremely staggered despite knowing a large party were coming. Pub itself was nice, clientele lovely and welcoming to other non locals. Probably wouldn't go again but I can imagine it being fine for a few pints.More

The owners or managers are unprofessional, do not have time for customers constantly shut when you want some food, and today I go for food with my son and his food was great but mine chips tasted like cooked well before and Reheated and when...I complain I'm told to wait 25 minutes and when you approach the staff they are to scared to stand upto managers and let customers down, I've had a meal with about six chips the smallest piece of steak... let's just say it was a child size meal for £12, managers need to go if there not willing to speak to customers and are happy enough to send out food of that Quality and might I add this is the lady management... shocking place whoever owns the pub needs to get rid of current landlords.More

If you want to go here for food then please DON'T!! They have hardly anything on the menu because they have something broke in the kitchen which has been like this for ages! Such a shame, it's a beautiful pub and so cosy and warm...inside and it has so much potential to be even better.More

I had a bad pint, it did not taste like my desired drink.. I asked the boss to change it and he wouldn’t. £4 down the toilet straight away!!. All the staff are miserable and rude apart from one. Waited 45 minutes for food that...wasn’t great. Lucky to get 2 stars.More

We have now visited twice and have been really impressed with the delicious food and friendly staff. I've ordered the rump steak on both occasions and both times it has been cooked to perfection! Will definitely be visiting again and would recommend The Tythings.

Popped into this pub today on my way home after finishing work never drank here before and grabbed myself a cone of chips on the way as I was only stopping for a quick pint and didn't have time to eat a full blown meal...in the pub as I have kids to collect from school. I went in grabbed a pint the pub wasn't busy so I sat onside on the bench minding my own buisness when the landlord very rudely came out and rather then asking or explaining that my chips couldn't be eaten on the premises he practically spoke to me like a piece of dirt. I told him that was fine but he didn't need to be so rude upon which he went to get the landlady who came out to tell me that he wasn't being rude (even though she wasn't even here at the time) and then started giving me the 3rd degree. I'm now sat at the kings head enjoying a lovely with welcoming staff !!!!More
