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.

Very tough and expensive beef Wellington ordered for myself on a reserved table. Beer and wine way overpriced for what is a simple local pub but trying to be pretentious. Large party of 6 on adjacent table who appeared well known to barman and owner...who were constantly given preferential attention, with one woman dominant with incessant loud talking. Ultimately our meals came. My wife's rather overpriced fish course and my Beef Welligton brought out. My "plastic" chips were some of the worst ever bought and at nearly £35 for Wellington, chips and very hard (hardly cooked) vegetables was a disgrace. On cutting into the fillet?????? steak it was tough and of poor standard. The only really good point of the meal was the additionally purchased homemade onion rings (so why not homemade chips). Complained to barman about steak and he said he would tell the chef/owner. Owner severally came out to talk to those who he apparently knew but never attempted to come over and ask what was the problem with the steak. Ultimately after finishing our drinks I went to bar to pay and the owner came to the bar to take payment. I asked was he aware of my complaint...he said he was and then went into an explanation that "the other table in the corner had not complained about their 3 steaks" I advised him I had to ask for a proper steak knife to cut mine and even then it was tough to cut....we had noted that on the other table the steak eaters were having difficulty cutting through their steaks. The offhand owner then commanded the barman to deduct the cost from the bill......we left and will not again return.....our recommendation for others is to walk down the road to another pub/restaurant (Horsehoe Inn)where the food we had the following evening was delicious and reasonably priced in a very ambient and friendly manner and place.More

Couldn’t recommend this place enough. The food was brilliant, meat cooked perfectly and the server was attentive and polite. Very fresh and well presented meals. I had the chicken liver parfait to begin, followed by filet of beef with black pudding, a bed of mash,...scallops and seasonal veg.More

Absolutely superb - delicious food and a very friendly and welcoming landlord and chef - and dog friendly too and nothing too much trouble - excellent value and would highly recommend for any occasion. The black pudding starter is the best ever and the beef...wellington was perfect. The smoked haddock mains was so tasty and the chef added a perfectly cooked poached egg. Deserts - the cheesecake and apple crumble were so nice as was the white chocolate brûlé - a fantastic pub and restaurantMore

Love the fact this restaurant uses local produce and all the food is properly homemade. The menu sounds delicious, but in reality we found our food rather mixed. I ordered the local lamb. The mash was delicious, the gravy/sauce was outstanding, and the most delicious...thing on the plate was in fact a slice of black pudding. However the supposed star of the show, the lamb, was almost invisible, and decidedly lack lustre. I was served three very tiny noisettes, which were rather more over cooked than the promised “pink” on the menu, and not very enjoyable. My husband opted for the sirloin steak - but unfortunately it was very chewy indeed. The chips and salad were very underwhelming, and the onion rings were horrible, tasting merely of old cooking oil. On the plus side both the surroundings, and the front of house personnel, were lovely. All in all we were very disappointed. It was expensive for a meal I could have cooked better at home. I am giving this a four star rating as the good bits were indeed excellent and deserved a five - but the poor bits were very average, and very underwhelming indeed.More

Nice country pub. Bar man friendly and professional. The beer and the food is good - the escalope of beef was delicious. Dissapointingly the white chocolate brulee proved not to be the classic set custard, flavoured with white chocolate. Having more than a passing resemblance...in taste and appearance to tinned custard topped with caramalised sugar.More

If you are looking for a quintessential Yorkshire country pub. This is the place. The fella that looked after us (I forget his name, but he had long hair and he was a great character) was extremely attentive, friendly and warm. Nothing was to much...trouble for him. From the moment we walked in to the moment we left we couldn’t of felt more welcome. Food was nothing but excellent. We had 3 courses and it sets the bar extremely high to what pub/restaurant food should be like. It’s a little pricer than your average pub maybe but you get what you pay for and for me the prices are justified. Not only for the quality of the food but the whole experience. Would 1000% recommend this place. Oh and it’s dog friendly.More

What a fabulous find! We called in for lunch with our grown daughter and sat outside in the lovely gardens. We ate from the lunch menu, I had the Stilton burger…amazing! We were so impressed we went back for my birthday lunch a few days...later and ate from the a la carte menu. The quality of the ingredients and the cooking are just fantastic. We both had whitebait which was delicious. For main I had Tornados of Beef Fillet and my husband had steak with all the trimmings. Both were perfectly cooked again. The whole meal was full of flavour. I always forget to take photos of the food… too keen to get stuck in…but did take a couple of the charming bar area. This is a real traditional, English country pub. There were plenty of locals which is a good sign! The guy behind the bar was really friendly and although busy, kept things running smoothly and was attentive to everyone throughout If we lived closer, we would definitely use this place regularlyMore
