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.

I wrote the email below to Castle Street Townhouse after dining there last week, hoping to discuss a disappointing experience and also what I believe to be poor value for money. I sent it to the email address on the website and also the address...that features on replies on Tripadvisor. After six days I’ve not had a response so I’ll have to leave my message here in the hope of prompting a reply: Apologies for getting in touch but I wanted to give some feedback on dining at Castle Street Townhouse yesterday. I don’t often complain and I would hate to be one of those people who cause a scene in a restaurant or take to Trip Advisor but I was really disappointed by my meal in terms of description and value for money. I wasn’t planning on raising this but it gnawed away at me last night and this morning. My partner and I always eat out on a Sunday in Liverpool and on the Wirral and we’re pretty loyal to the places we like. We tend to eat around Bolt St, Hope St, and Castle St and we’re hoping to add the Townhouse to our regular haunts. We’ve been a few times but this is our first visit of 2024 as I think you were closed for part of January. I’m vegetarian and I ordered the mushroom steak at £19. I understand that £19 isn’t going to break the bank but I’d say it was a mid-range price for a meal, particularly given the absence of any meat. My expectation, based on the description of this being a “steak”, was that it’d be something of a meat substitute and solidly formed piece of food similar to maybe a Vivera steak or The No Meat Company. Unfortunately, my meal comprised of three mushrooms atop of some peppers with chips and tomatoes. It was really disappointing and to be honest I felt ripped off. I compared my meal to my partner’s and she had a “real” steak, which was only £5 dearer. I understand that the cost of a meal in a restaurant comprises of overheads as well as the actual food on the plate but considering the contents of the meal alone I can’t see how it would have cost more than £2 or £3 in terms of ingredients. I’m not sure that I’m particularly looking for anything from this but you may want to consider the descriptions on your menu and acknowledge that you could have done better. I’d genuinely like to return to your restaurant but yesterday’s experience wasn’t great. RegardsMore

Staff were mostly friendly and helpful but did not ask if we needed any condiments when our meal was served. Staff did not ask if everything was ok with the food. I had the chicken burger and it was just average, chips were not very...nice. It was part of the 50% off deal for January, so it was ok but I would not like to pay full price as it was not much better than McDonald’s . The soup of the day was ok but again would not be worth paying full price for it .More

I did not see any dogs when I was there on the inside. But, I would contact them directly as they have tables on the street. Usually, on the street, most places allow well-behaved dogs.
