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.

Hastings hfc chicken AVOID... Shocking. We spent 21 pounds.. The hot wings were so dry they crumbled inedible. The base of the half pound burgers were soggy. The bags chips were only one third full. I called the shop and the man actually started arguing...with me insisting his food is good, He was so rude, and he hung up the phone. I called back and said you hung up phone and he said yes cos I'm busy. I told him I will have to leave a bad review and he said yes OK go on then and hung up phone on me againMore

Meat was greasy, coupled with tasteless and the chips tasted of lard. Not a nice place to eat from. It is after all a cheap version of KFC therefore one should expect it to be unhealthy but it was truly awful.

Ordered takeaway for delivery. Took 75 mins to deliver entirely the wrong order. Honestly, the only thing that was right was the receipt. Replacement was with us within 30 mins and the staff were excellent. Chips soggy and limp. Extra hot wings? No spice at...all. However, the burgers will have us coming back for more. Real, guilty pleasures!More

cold rock hard fries (i'd say reheats, mostly binned) some chicken warm & very dry, some freshly cooked, gravy (?) very stiff & jelly-like with a ring of dirty oil around it....(all 4 binned) ... I specifically requested no wings or side-breast(the rib-cage bit with...no meat) bit received side breast anyhow......oh, and items missing.. (2 dough-nuts) the only thing ok was the vienetta ice cream, & the canned drinks...... such a shame, because the coating on the (warm) chicken is identical to KFC .... which is where i should have gone tonight...... HFC? never ever again ..... a waste of £27.42.More

Ordered and paid online, was told 30-45minutes. After an hour I called and was told it wont be long and there is extra food as an apology. Food finally arrived 1 hr and a half late-no extra food and it was inedible. I rang to...complain and was again greeted by very rude staff. Apparently if you live more than 5 minutes drive away it's 'too far'. The girl needs to go on a communications course or at least be taught how to speak to customers!More
