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.

My daughter booked Tudor Barn for our Sunday lunch, having visited previously. It was my first time here; won't be my last! Weather was too damp and cold for a walk around the grounds, but the interior is so cosy and welcoming. Nice to see...some very tasteful Christmas decorations up! Our Sunday roasts were delicious. As a vegetarian, I was really impressed by the nut roast- well cooked, nicely flavoured and not at all dry. MY daughter's roast beef was also excellent. The restaurant has a good atmosphere:family friendly and relaxing. We shall certainly return in future.More

Nice location, good staff. Unfortunately, the roast dinner (beef) I had was dire. Beef was awful, veg also left a lot to be desired . I didn’t complain at the time as I didn’t want to make a fuss as we were with family. But,...on reflection, I should have said something as we wasted money. Hopefully, they will up their game. We won’t be going back ☹️More

We got married here in October 2023 and I wish that we’d taken notice of the bad reviews of the managing director Suzie Bailey. On so many occasions in the process of organising the wedding, Suzie was overbearing, judgemental, patronising and ultimately became unapproachable, wearing...us down. This was extremely distressing for me at times, during what should have been an enjoyable process of celebrating the joining of two families. We were told in the sales pitch that it would be fine to tailor our wedding day to make it feel more personal in terms of food, entertainment and music. We had asked about this specifically as we wanted to include some cultural aspects commonly used in Chinese and Japanese weddings. But many of our very reasonable requests were met insensitively and, at one point, we were even lied to about why one of our requests had been denied. Things eventually got so bad that we were going to pull out 6 weeks before and find another venue but we were tied into the contract and would have lost a lot of money (£15,000+). We understand that Tudor Barn is a listed building so has some restrictions on what you can do inside the venue and on the grounds. We also understand that Tudor Barn is a profit-making business and has a very limited list of approved caterers and suppliers who, under Suzie's instruction, are limited in what they can provide. There is no way around this, as we found out when every Asian caterer we suggested was prohibited by her. Even after complying with all the venue’s rules as a listed building and paying the necessary commission and service fees, it felt like Suzie was exercising an abuse of power to deny our requests for seemingly arbitrary reasons. In my experience, whenever we had a concern or request which we wanted to discuss, Suzie was quick to shut us down and deferred to saying that she has been managing weddings for the past 15 years and has 200 clients a year. There is a small team of wonderful operational staff available on the day but ultimately Suzie controlled every aspect of our wedding planning and we were repeatedly made to feel like we were being too demanding and unreasonable. I’m sad that what should have been a joyous once-in-a-lifetime process caused us so much stress and I regret having our wedding at Tudor Barn. To save other people the same regrets, if anyone would like to speak with me directly, please get in touch as I am happy to discuss why our experience was so unpleasant and give you an idea of things to watch out for before you commit to having your wedding here.More

They do the best piña coladas around. Also a lovely selection of kids meals. We shared a snack board which I thought was nice and good value. Loads of space outside for children to run around.

This was our first (and sadly our last) time visiting the Tudor Barn. First impressions were not good. I called to say we were stuck in traffic and was met with a frosty reception. After I repeatedly apologised for our delay I was told that...they would hold the table for 15 mins but that we must be out by 14.45 as they needed to prepare the table for the 3pm guests ( not sure why this would take 15 mins? As there are no tablecloths or special table settings) . The waiting staff were friendly, however service was a little slow. Food was ok - not the worst roast I've had, but certainly not the best. Not impressed that there was not much more than a spoonful of gravy on our dinners and so had to pay an extra £2 for more gravy!!! And £10 for a glass of Pimms!!! Ridiculous! They also forgot the birthday brownies, though the server was genuinely very apologetic about this so we took them 'to go'. Overall what was supposed to be a special family lunch was very underwhelming. Total bill for 5 drinks, 5 starters and 5 mains £191. We chose not to have desserts. We won't be back.More

Came here for Sunday lunch on a whim. We live nearby but have never been for Sunday lunch before. Very easy to park nearby (on a Sunday at least). The staff were very friendly and attentive. The menu is fairly small, but still had vegetarian...and pescatarian options. My wife loved her lamb roast, while my fish and chips were good, if a little too grease heavy for my liking. The restaurant is lovely to sit in; the last Tudor barn in London, apparently. We also had some delicious puddings that really completed the meal. Price-wise, this is very affordable and good value for money. I'm glad to see they made it through the pandemic and hope they continue to serve for many years to come.More

Booked dinner. Had to order both dinner and dessert straight away. No suitable gap between courses. Asked for coffee but told machine was being cleaned for end of evening. This was 9.20pm! Last orders called at 10.10pm Which seemed very early considering it states they...are open until 11 Just seemed to want people to leave early and close. Bill arrived incorrect too Very disappointing On good note. The food was lovely. Just evening spoilt by the service. Been here many times, linch, dinner, afternoon tea. But will not rush backMore
