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.

Three of us for Sunday lunch, each had different. Lamb, Pork, Beef. All excellent/tasty. Nice large portions so had no room to try the desserts, which looked very tasty. Will definitely be returning very soon and try to leave room for a dessert. Place was...almost full but still did not feel cramped. Staff were very good. Was hoping for good things and you certainly delivered. Well done to all and will see you again soon.More

The Food here is out of this world! and there's a lovely warm welcome feeling around the place too. I had heard that it was a nice place to eat, but we were blown away by the whole experience. The staff were friendly and very...helpful, and the quiz question cards on the tables made for a bit of fun too. Al in all a fantastic experience, if I could give it 7 stars I would. You have to visit this restaurant!!More

Myself and my partner visited the windmill inn brascote yesterday for Sunday lunch, this was our first time, and after looking at the reviews we expected high expectations. Unfortunately on our arrival we where left standing around, there was a mix with the tables, when...we did get seated, the service was poor left to long before we where attended in between course. Wasn't asked if we wanted anymore drinks, my partner had the 2 meat option which cost more, however when we asked for the bill, we where charged an extra £2 for this, despite already paying more. It was extra due to having lamb and beef which wasn't explained to us at the start. The soup was nice but the vegetables where very over seasoned with herbs and garlic. Overall we where disappointed no thankyou for coming and see you again Unfortunately we won't be visiting again as this was overpriced for what we got.More

We booked for the Pie night which is on a Wednesday evening. There’s a choice of 4 excellent homemade pies as well as a pizza selection (I’ve never had the pizza) the garlic chicken Dijon pie was amazing. Great un-intrusive service. Great selection of beers...and ciders. Oh and the puddings were fantastic too.More
