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.

A great place to bring our grandchildren time and time again. The staff all go above and beyond for us. Our favourite place to visit for a roast dinner, the selection is delicious.

Very good value and huge meals. Your challenge is to make Nigel the Landlord smile! An empty plate is a real challenge, as the meals are very generous. One of my local pubs, and a very good one.

We were unsure about going after seeing a review saying they were not dog friendly. How glad we were to follow our gut feelings and visited the. The food was exceptional with very large portions. I went for the sausage and mash and ended up...with five sausages and couple of pounds of potatoes. The landlord was welcoming and the staff were first class. This place is definitely worth a second, third or even four visits in a weekMore

A truly wonderful pub, with such a good atmosphere. The food is so reasonably priced, excellent quality and plenty of it! We came here twice whilst staying locally but would be here all the time if we lived closer!

Thank you so much for such wonderful organisation today for my very large group. The service was amazing we all felt so welcome. Wow the food !!!! How can you make a profit with such huge plates of delicious fresh roasts. Compliments to the chefs....You must have the BEST roasts in the area, although I can’t imagine many people manage the largest roast you offer as the standard one is Huge. Beautifully cooked. The puddings are great too especially the Daim amaretto ice cream it’s amazing.More

Lovely pub, food was nice depending what you had, lasagne was lovely but roast was standard with hard potatoes, portion sizes were very generous but when booking a table of 10 for a birthday you don’t expect to be timed. We basically got kicked out...because they booked in another table giving us 1.5 to eat dinner and pudding thankfully we didn’t have starters. But when it’s busy you don’t expect to be so rushed especially when there’s so many of you and other tables that are also waiting for food ect. I’ve never been somewhere the staff were so rude and unwelcoming, I work in hospitality and when staff are checking their watches telling you, you need to leave because they need the table is horrendous. Only 1 lovely staff member (thank you for being so lovely) out of 5 but unfortunately she got taken off our table after taking our main order. This is not the first time being at three oaks where staff clearly don’t want to be there or serve you with their rude and abrupt mannerism. It’s like asking a question of how big is the pudding is a crime!More

Well if you are looking for quantity over quality crossed with faulty towers (owner has to be related to basil) then this is the place for you! Popped in here whilst holidaying in area and have tried before and also written a great review, alas...this visit was not as great! 2 of us had the chicken bacon and leek pie - which consisted of 3 small pieces of chicken, 1 piece of bacon and I was still looking for my leek when I decided to abandon all hope after tasting a very bland almost wallpaper consistency filling, yes you get plenty of veg, poor quality peas and zero flavour. 2 had the steak pies and stated that they enjoyed them, again lots of veg. Loved the quirkiness of this pub but unfortunately in my opinion the place needs a good clean and a chef that knows what flavour is!More

Went for Sunday roast, both had roast beef. The dinner was very large, lots of beef. Not of a good quality. Veg and roast potatoes were ok. Maybe less portion and better quality food. Shame as used this pub many times over the years, just...very average food, read all the reviews , but beg to differ. Staff were very good and polite.More
