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.

It took some time for the staff to acknowledge us when we arrived. One of our party chose pork, which was tough and inedible. There was no apology and they only offered a 50% discount. The other meals were good quality. Due to the poor...service we would not return. Service in general was poor.More

We were recommended to this retaurant by another hotel in Aldeburgh. The meal was generally good, I had the catch of the day which was sea bream and was well cooked, but my wife's main course of pulled beef was over cooked and dry. The...starters were very good. The large room is probably better suited to summertime, and lacked warmth both in the sense of ambience but also because the doors into the street did not fully close and made it very draughty whenever anyone used this entrance. After a complaint from another table a memeber of staff closed the outer wooden doors which solved the problem. The service was geberally very good and the meal represented good value for money.More

Bought a voucher online before Christmas, the roast did not disappoint, good quality meat and great selection of veg, only thing I would change is the size of the dessert quite small for the cost.

There's not much in the way of ambience here - flatly lit with large windows looking out onto winter darkness so not a place for an intimate dinner. Some of our menu choices were good but the fish and chips were a big disappointment: grey...probably pre-frozen coley in a restaurant in a fishing village? The menu deliberately does not identify the fish... the chef needs to up his game in Aldeburgh.More
