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.

You can always rely on the Beefeater for a great steak and burgers. Today we had burgers served by Emma. We always look forward to seeing her and the rest of the friendly staff.

We came on our anniversary as a treat and our waitresses was Emma. She was so lovely and accommodating. Normally you have to flag someone down to get drinks or anything extra but she was on the ball and noticed when our glasses were empty...and offered to top them up. Couldn't of asked for a better waitress.More

Wonderful and tasty Sunday roast. Two mains of lamb rump were amazing and delicious as were all the trimmings. So much better than anticipated and also the desserts of sticky toffee pudding and the biscotti sundae were to die for! Emma from start to finish...was happy, efficient and so friendly. What a credit she is to this place. The only downside, if there is any criticism at all, is the outside when we arrived. You could be put off by the tired and not so nice looking exterior but once inside, it was a fantastic experience!More

Met at the door shown to our seats promptly. The meal was well presented with good service from Emma. Drinks served promptly. Only one criticism, why do you have to pay for extra gravy??? Put enough on in the first place. This is the only...restaurant that does this.More

The food here was really nice and very enjoyable. The staff were friendly and helpful. The service was very good, could not fault. The portion size was also good, so good could not manage dessert, which was a shame as wanted. A great place to...stop for something to eat.More

There is a car park at the Premier Inn. There is a barrier so you may have to go into the Premier Inn first. A smaller car park at the Plough Beefeater next door. Hope this helps.
