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.

Tonight we visited for a meal for my partners 30th. I am still so shocked by the experience. We ordered food at 8.30pm, by 9.30pm my partner still didn’t have his starter and no one had spoken to us. My partner had enough and went...up to pay for the drinks and leave only to be told the food was nearly ready and there had been an ‘incident.’ So we waited another ten minutes and our food arrived. No starter and my main I thought I’d double check it was gluten free as I’d asked as the bun looked like a normal bun. The waitress then said it wasn’t and the actual burger wasn’t either. By this point we really had enough. This is so poor. If I’d have eaten this burger I’d have really suffered. You really need to sort this out!! This used to our favourite pub. Looks like it’s not anymore.More

Booked in for lunch. Half of the menu wasn't available. Told they needed to play catch up because they're closed Monday & Tuesday. Really disappointing. We ate an average sharing board then left. Won't be going back.

We went for a roast with my son & hes girlfriend. Food was lovely & well presented. Staff were attentive, friendly & nothing was too much trouble. Shout out to Sam, Phoebe & Harry. An issue was dealt with by the management very efficiently &...professionally. Definitely going back, highly recommend. Thank you 😊More

The Turks Head is a much loved pub by myself and my partner, however, since the change in management and chef we will not be returning. It has gone really horrendously down hill. The starters were okay but the garlic prawns were cooked in so...much chilli you could barely eat them and the duck main was overcooked, dry and almost grey in colour. It had clearly been cooked previously and reheated but quite badly, my partners chicken was the same, dry and overcooked, such a shame as previously the quality here was top notch, I asked the server of the chef had changed and was told that yes he had and in fact all the previous staff had been ‘sacked’ which I thought was poor taste and clearly a bad decision. Would not be returning and completely gutted this gem of a pub has been ruined.More

Fantastic Visit to this Fantastic Country Pub . The Service was Amazing especially from Sam in Restaurant who was Very On Ball , we did not have to wait long before a drink order was taken and was promptly served , for us to enjoy...while making our Dinner choices . I myself had the Steak and Ale pie which was 10/10 and my two friends both had chicken supreme which looked lovely to . After our mains we were given menus to look at desserts but given plenty of time to have a rest and make our choices . I had chocolate Dome which was very nice and my two friends had sticky toffee pudding. In all a VERY ENJOYABLE EXPERIENCE We will be back 100%More

We expected a nice meal - early Sat evening v poor selections, three meals not available, no specials, pies microwaved, steak indescribable. Nearly left after a three prawn starter on salad with stale bread. Evening dinner menu itself looks like what you would find in...a roadside cafe. Shocking.More

After seeing the latest reviews for October we were not sure about booking a family Xmas meal for 14 of us, but the new management had taken over and we were the first to use the restaurant so said let’s give a try. We were...welcomed by new manager and shown to our table and asked what we would like to drink, all of us had pre ordered our meal and when they arrived everyone had a first class 5 star meal and the deserts where of same standard. So I would advise people to go a have a meal there and you will not be disappointed. Do not take any notice of old reviews as that was the old management.More

I saw that there has been a few past bad reviews for here but since Sam and his team have taken over we have had the best experience. We visited on 30th November as a group of 12 for a suprise birthday and the service...was brilliant, everyone was so accommodating and friendly. The food was beautiful, I couldn’t fault it. It was also their opening night and we got a glass of Prosecco included (they even did orange juice for the kids). The actual restaurant was stunning and super Christmassy! Good luck with your new ventures I’m sure it will be very successful :)More
