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.

We were staying in Lyndhurst and checked Trip Advisor for well-rated dining options nearby. We had been for a day’s cycling around the New Forest and so wanted some hearty pub grub, and the Salmon Leap didn’t disappoint. As someone from out of town, we...used Google to get here, and glad we did, not the easiest of approaches. What The Salmon Leap lacks in old world charm, it makes up for in great service, menu choices and portion sizes! We really enjoyed our meals and definitely recommend a visit.More

The staff were lovely and quickly found us a table. Service...was quick. Food was delicious. Lovely atmosphere and would definitely recommend. Caters for children too at a great price.

Awful place that is regulars only. Outsiders & visitors are not made welcome. Food & drink are overly priced, staff are abrupt & they want you to leave your actual bank card behind the bar. Untrustworthy, unspecial & unfriendly

We managed to book a last minute table at The Salmon Leap today. The staff were so friendly and accommodating and we were made welcome from the minute we arrived. We each chose the large roast. The options included chicken , beef, turkey and pork....There were three in our party and we all had something different. The only roast we didn’t order was the pork. All three meals came out very quickly. We were impressed at how hot, tasty and delicious they all were. We’ll definitely be recommending it to our friends and family. And we’ll be visiting again very soon; but we might need a small roast this time to make sure we leave room for one of the desserts!More
