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.

Went for my birthday, 1st time visitor, stayed in the hotel and booked in the dinner and breakfast the following day, meal was good and got mine free as was my birthday, had some drinks before and after in the bar area and some offers...on those too, well worth a visit, best to book through hotel if tour staying as breakfast was £10 each and well worth it, well organised service and our server 'Anne' was lovely.More

Went to collect a takeaway of buffalo chicken wings of which I ordered 24. It should be a trade description violation to even suggest what was served as chicken wings!! They were nothing more than sparrow wings at best. Absolutely shocking!! They were genuinely incredibly...tiny and nothing at all what they used to be like. £33.60 for some sparrow wings and potato skins! Bloody rip off as the quality was absolutely rubbish! 🤬More

I’ve been to Damon’s a fair few times over the years the last time of which before this one was probably a good six or seven years ago. The place had started to go downhill, the decor was aged and the quality of the food...had gotten worse and worse. It was only due to my friend suggesting that we go here for ribs that I paid a visit on this occasion. We had coleslaw and a bread roll to start with. The bread roll was a small and cold affair, and not the heated role that he used to get. The coleslaw is as good as I remember it being which was always a highlight. The drinks menu in terms of beers is really poor serving only the cheapest and I think it really needs a shake up. I ordered a combo meal which was a gammon steak and a chicken in barbecue sauce and these came with chips and Boston beans. The food came out very quickly as was expected. You don’t really expect these places to cook everything from scratch, so there is always an element of pre-cook about it. I was very pleasantly surprised of the quality of the food, the gammon was tasty and juicy and the chicken wasn’t dry in the slightest, which was my fear. My friend had ribs and was very happy with her meal too. The service was excellent, and the place was very busy for a midweek evening.I’d be happy to go here again soon and recommend it.More

Three of us went for an early dinner on a Friday night. They told us we had to wait for our table to be ready which was odd as the whole restaurant only had about 6 tables seated. There was a brand new menu which...was really good. New choices and good selection. Food was really nice. For 3 of us though I thought it was pricey at over £100 without drinks (as we got them at the bar first). Only thing that was disappointing was the bread at the start. I liked the warm rolls before but now they’re normal cold rolls.More

Wife got to the door to be met by a very stroppy security guard who wouldn't let her in. We've been several times before but never again. Don't need to be disrespected like that.

We ordered a takeaway. The meal was quite cold and all needed reheating. Staff haven’t a clue what they were doing! The ribs were good, one positive! BUT The onion loaf was just a tray of fried soggy onions, no resemblance to an onion loaf...that we have had before. Chicken wings were not crispy just soggy fried chicken. Very disappointed, very overpriced for what we got! Definitely won’t be having another meal from there.More

oh dear, if ever a restaurant has gone to the dogs, this is it! Cheap in house menu's, portions cut by 50%, atmosphere dire, music so load that you could not hold a conversation, even placing an order was difficult. No chardonay, no gamon, no...way will this place survive. We used to love it here, everything has been cut to the bone to save cost, the place used to be rammed at the weekends, not today (Sun), the place was less than half full. It will be a long, long time before we come again...if ever.....if it is still open...... The quality of the food was OK, just much, much smaller portions than in the past.More

Have been coming to Damons since the 90s. The food in our opinion is still magnificent, the ribs were to die for back then and they still are now. The staff, whilst clearly busy were still friendly and helpful. It's obviously a bit more expensive...nowadays, but then again it is 2023! We stayed at the hotel this time as well and that was also really good. Great rooms at a decent price. Breakfast in the morning was also great and really good value at £10 each. Overall, a great stay with amazing food.More

We were actually here for dinner and breakfast. Both were excellent. Cassie was wonderful at topping up the coffee in the morning and nothing was too much trouble for Jacob the evening before. The food was, as always when I've been, lovely.
