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.

If I could have awarded this pub a zero I would have done, the staff were very friendly but I’m afraid that’s all the positives. There was a quiz on so we sat outside as it was so loud, noisy people outside & a few...youths were trying to get in the pub but were apparently barred. Eventually they were allowed in but chose to sit opposite us, the language was disgusting so we drank up & left only to see a youth urinating against a wall ! Won’t returnMore

Used to go here decades ago when it was called “Winmarith”. car park was empty so didn’t bode well, however, very pleasantly surprised. Called Saturday lunch for a quick bite whilst out and about. Tried some tapas off the menu and was very tasty. The...lady who served us was very nice, explained some things on the menu and was attentive, but not overly so. Will certainly pop back again for a drink and tapas.More

Chippy Tea Friday at the Spen. Decided to go for the 2-4 £14 menu and wasn't disappointed. Cheaper than the chip shop. Nice cod with chunky chips and homemade minty peas. Great value and quality fresh food. Forgot to take photos of it though. Big...thank you to Katie the catering manager!More

Well, when you advertise bogof on steak draw people in and then serve them a drink without telling them you have no steak WOW afraid if the pub don't sort out how they treat customers then I can't see it being open long. Pub was...empty, ended up at the Half Way House and had a lovely steak there insteadMore

Staff very helpful and pleasant but the service was pretty dire, our first meal came but the last one arrived when first finished, there were 8 of us so very slow. The food quality was pretty poor in the main but the pizzas were good....Poor menu as much of it was unavailable. The pub itself was clean as were the toilets. The pub has a chair lift to get access but from what I could see the toilets could be an issue. A nice atmosphere to. A decent car park and within walking distance to the S Shore.More

Four of us called for a drink and Sunday lunch recently and were pleased with our food and beers. We all had a Roast Beef Dinner which included 5 different vegetables as well as all the usual trimmings included. Beef was tender and tasty (I...wished there had been a little bit more of it but no complaints about value and quality). Service was friendly and quick, the pub was clean, comfortable and dog friendly. Would certainly eat here again.More

We came on holiday to Blackpool for our daughters 10th birthday. We booked a table for the evening for a meal. When we arrived table had been decorated for the occasion. All staff made a fuss of our daughter ( all of us to be...fair) Kelly was very attentive and we feel everyone went above and beyond. Food was amazing very obviously cooked to order and fresh. Kelly kindly led the birthday singing with cake and candles ! Will defiantly return next time we are in Blackpool.More
