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.

Went with a friend to get Mexican food for the last week of the tierrataco pop up, had their food before at their own restaurant and love it so was excited to take a friend as Pig and Tail is a lovely building. There was...a young woman working on the bar with dark hair and a European accent who didn’t greet us or smile while we were waiting to be seated, and she was unfriendly and close to rude all night. Whereas,The young female waitress was lovely and friendly. We ordered at 8pm and didn’t get our food until past 9pm, when it arrived it was hardly warm and we were given a free taco of meat that neither of us could eat. As the venue closes at 10pm we felt rushed and awkward. When we did ask for the bill so we could leave quickly the bartender abruptly told us to go to the bar and then she walked away, we thought this to be rude as it had been table service all evening. I have no issue paying at the bar but the tone was unnecessary and we felt as if we’d done something wrong. The food was great in taste and the atmosphere was fun and festive so overall a good night but just a little disappointed.More

Have been here quite a few times as are very local to the pub. The service is always great, the drinks are amazing and the food hits the spot. The beer garden is such a hidden gem, and with dogs this is a great location...and extremely dog friendly. This is a must visit, even if just for a quick drink or bite to eat for lunch. Always support local and independent!More

The pub was unassuming, but once inside it was nice and bright and friendly. And our meal was amazing. Whoever they had cooking our ham, egg and chips and our Durwood burger, knows what they are doing!

A delightful light and spacious bar. The manageress is a breath of fresh air, young, enthusiastic and most attentive with a good knowledge of the drinks and food. She tempered us two days later and we were welcomed once more Very nice place

Came here on Saturday night, was going to stay for food but after being made to wait for so long at a bar that wasn't busy we thought we would spend our money elsewhere. The two bartenders were both acting very strange. Neither of the...two ladies looked like they were going to bother serving the waiting customers and when I said excuse me I got a scowl off one of them. We had one drink and then left. We couldn't understand their behaviour but we won't bother visiting again as there are better bars/restaurants in the area.More
