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.

First time visitor. Popped in for lunch on a Sunday and opted for the Scouse. It was delicious! The pub itself is very nice and comfortable and the staff were helpful and friendly. I will definitely go again on any return trip to Liverpool.

This is a great pub, we always visit when in Liverpool. The food is usually pretty good standard pub grub but the last couple of times it has been disappointing, and last night it (fish and chips) was dreadful. Shame.

Lovely place for a Sunday lunch. It’s served till 7pm, and three courses for 14.95, what a bargain. Service was great, food was tasty and the decoration of the place is wonderful. Cara was our server and she was brilliant.
