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.

Great Sports Bar to watch the Six Nationa Rugby on a Saturday afternoon. Lovely, tasty and generous portions of well-priced Indian food. Chef and bar staff were friendly and accommodated gluten free diners. All in all a great afternoon.

Definitely a hidden Food Gem in Southampton: their food is amazing and Tandoori mixed grill to die for! Great value for money. Staff are very friendly and welcoming! Even if you're not a "sports fan" this is a place to go for some good Tandoori...and curry dishes!More

We hired the downstairs area of the venue for our staff Christmas party and it didn't dissapoint. Kip was really accommodating and great in helping get it organised include hiring the band and supplying Indian buffet food. The venue was perfect for what we needed...with our own bar and everyone at the party had a great time. The food was great and ideal for a big group. The staff were lovely and the drinks service was spot on. Definitely worth considering for anyone that wants to hold a party at this venue and the organisation was a breeze....thanks again all at 5 Rivers.More

I would not recommend it as the TV are fairly load for the sporting activities, and so is the music. Your dog would not be happy.
