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.

We were a party of 8 for lunch and had our own private room. There are a wide range of seating options otherwise. Service from the 4 staff we dealt with could not have been more courteous. The food was excellent and well above pub...quality as was the beer. Shipstone's to die for. Previous reviewer clearly has a chip on their shoulder, as if I correctly identify the individual referred to he could not have been more helpful and courteous. Very highly recommend.More

Although the food was nice it took far too long too arrive. Bar manager (bold ginger bloke) has the personality of a wet fish. Waitress looked like she’s just left prisoner Cell Block H. Overall an unpleasant atmosphere for a quiet country pub. Very disappointing.

A fantastic find, off the beaten track. Someone has put a lot of care and thought into refurbishing this quintessential English pub, and has had the nouse to equip it with the staff and grace befitting a slot on your "places worthy of visiting regularly"...list. Quality foods, and good rotation of menus reflects the calibre of a good chef, accompanied with excellent service with genuine care, grateful for your patronage.More

I took my family for a post Christmas dinner on the 29th December. We were six adults and three children. The children menu had good choices, the adults too. We had two courses each, the starters were small but beautifully presented and tasted great, my...son had the baked celeriac with Jerusalem artichokes purée, my daughter had the pork belly with scallops and my son in law the mushroom risotto, all were impressed with their choices. For mains we had , Hake with mussels and bouillabaisse sauce, Braised beef cheeks, Chicken and bacon pie and vegan mushroom and chestnut Wellingtons, all beautiful presented and cooked to perfection. Desserts did not disappoint either, Christmas sticky toffee pudding, passion fruit crémeux and ice cream for the children. Drinks were expensive but good. The service was friendly and they made sure the children got their food at the same time as the adults starters, Not a cheap meal out but we all enjoyed our food and experience.More

Booked in for Sunday lunch, bar and waiting staff were amazing and really friendly. Tasteful decor and loads of sofas to get comfy on for pre-dinner drinks. Food was fantastic which was exactly what we needed when the weather was so awful! Would definitely recommend...a visit xMore

We received a warm welcome on arrival. The lunch menu choice was very inviting. When the food arrived it was very well presented enough to get your taste buds crying out for the very tasteful flavours. The presentation also entices your senses.

Singularly unimpressed! Definitely NOT worth the price. Our Sunday lunch worked out at over £40 each and frankly we have had much better for under £25 in many local eateries. Our starters were definitely on the skimpy side. The lamb was over cooked and served...with a sauce!gravy which was quite acidic. The roast veg and Yorkshire pudding were well cooked but the other veg was a mush mash and quire ordinary. The desserts were adequate but like the drinks over priced.More

From the moment you walk in to the bar, it is cosy,comfortable , so welcoming. Beautiful setting in the bar area , the dining room bright and family friendly. All staff were very pleasant, well presented and with a genuine friendly smile. The ford was...certainly not a disappointment. Prawn salad was just that, very good size. The Pate was excellent. The Pies with potatoes, veg and nice gravy. Everything perfect for our 47th wedding anniversary celebration. To finish the night with hot Latte in comfortable seating area in the bar with a roaring fire. Perfect in every way. We will certainly return again.More

Lovely setting (main dining area is noisy but added to the atmosphere) we went for Sunday lunch and it was delicious! My son is coeliac and they also catered well for his needs (we did take our own yorkshires) but they were very accommodating! Would...definitely recommend the roast dinners and will be going back!More

We booked for lunch on a very hot day and sat inside although there was a lovely terrace with umbrellas too. Although we are local, we hadn't visited before. The place had been very tastefully renovated. The menu wasn't your usual pub grub and so...the prices of the food reflected this. The menu was on the internet so I had seen it before booking. My cod dish was very unusual and my husbands risotto even had a courgette with a stuffed flower. It's so very nice to have something different. Our only gripe was the intrusive music which wasn't background music and too thumpy for a restaurant that wasn't full enough of people to cover the beats. They were unable to reduce the volume when asked. Our favourite restaurant is only just up the road from The Griffin but we will probably be back to try something else when they've changed the menu.More
