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.

No Hope!! Came highly recommended so booked a roast dinner for my friends birthday. Arrived to be told they had none left! Pointless making a booking. Went to Cork & Fork along the road - wasn’t disappointed

Booked well in advance for Sunday lunch/dinner to celebrate our friends birthday. On arrival at our allocated booking time we were told there was no roast dinners left!?! Even though the guy behind the bar said they’d not had any walk-ins. Made no sense whatsoever....Bitterly disappointed and completely spoilt my friends birthday afternoon. Won’t bother with Hope and Smoke ever again. Rubbish service and poor management. Fortunately, we were able to get a table at nearby Cork and Fork on Allerton Road and the food and service was amazing, so probably did us a favour after all!More

Only a small venue but staff where absolutely lovely and the food matched the staff we had salt and pepper Halloumi bites and the ribs for main and it was the best ribs I have ever had the meat fell apart and the bbq sauce...was not to over powering it was the perfect balance of flavour. Would definitely recommend and will be going back.More

We booked a table for 22 people for a family meal my Daughters 21st Birthday. The food was pre booked the day before as they requested, My Daughter is Vegan and also gluten free, they said that wasn’t a problem. We went in the afternoon...to give them balloons, banners, posters and bottles of Prosecco for the table, the staff assured us they would have the room set up and “ looking lovely “ we left feeling confident and trusted them to deliver. On arrival at 8pm the room was occupied by other diners and wasn’t set up, not a problem we just got a drink and waited, and waited. In the end we accepted the room was not going to be set up and all sat down after arranging the tables ourselves. I understand they were busy again it’s not a problem but then we waited an age for the starters and were informed some of the starters would come with the mains, then they said the food we had ordered for my Daughter was maybe not gluten free so she ended up having “ chips, hummus and gluten free garlic bread “ ! We ended up eating at 10.30pm, I must say I cannot fault the food it was delicious but very very late, when we were leaving the manager couldn’t stop apologising but then presented me with a bill for all of the drinks £147.00 everyone had paid for their drinks which was disputed by the manager, needless to say we paid the bill but left feeling very angry as we were charged twice the whole night was a shambles very disorganised and very unprofessional, oh and the toilets were dirty with excrement on the floor in one of the 2 toilets, needless to say it was our first and last visit.More

What's happened.....its gone from the best Sunday Lunch to possibly the worst. Who has dried onions on their roast? Thinly sliced roast beef straight from the delii at Liddle and some sort of unidentified Asian infused roast chicken which is probably used in another more...appropriate dish. Frozen cauli and broccoli sprinkled with dried 'Italian cheese'. Can't be bothered writing about the yorkies or gravey but you get my drift. My companions enjoyed their burgers but the roast was appalling. Nobody came to ask if the food was OK otherwise I would have told them.More

We went for a casual dinner for my brother’s birthday. When we arrived there was live music and a friendly, fun atmosphere. One of our group has a nut allergy and the staff could not have been more helpful and attentive - ensuring everything was...safe. The food was very tasty and portions were good! We didn’t have room for dessert but the surprise Eton mess with a candle for my brother was a nice touch and much appreciated. Service was excellent, staff were friendly but professional. We have recommended Hope and Smoke to friends and will eat here again.More
