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.

Came for husbands birthday and very Disappointed. We've been here twice before some time back and loved it but now it feels like standard's of slipped. Asked about non alcoholic drinks and was offered no selection. Ordered steak and ale pie. Meat was very grissly...and the pastry which I believe was short crust but was harder than a stale Biscuit, when I mentioned this to the staff was informed been told this before but believe this is how it comes. Which I didn't accept but no apology or resolve or an offer at another product. Sad to say I won't be back.More

This is no longer a traditional, English pub: it does not serve traditional bitter and offers mainly pale , lager , light beers dispensed by gas with no hand pumps. These are aimed at the younger generation and masquerade as real ale! On the rare...occasions it is used it is noisy , lacking in atmosphere and it is to easy to hold a reasonable conversation. Some customers tend to shout. Not a cosy experience or one I can recommend.More

This place has been through the mill over the last year or so but is now fully back to its very best . The revitalised team of old are back in place and their youth , service and overall professionalism is a pleasure to see....The food is also back to top notch , my brother and I had the steak pie and Princess burger a couple of weeks ago which were both excellent and well priced. We now have a repeat Sunday lunchtime booking !! Long May this little gem last and go from strength to strength 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻🙏🏻More

We booked dinner at 8pm and enjoyed having drinks at the bar which was enjoyable in a really friendly environment. My wife and myself regularly have a drink in The Princess and decided to book dinner. This was a mistake as the food was awful...and the service completely shambolic. Our nachos starter arrived after the main course was served. The manager then tried to justify the situation rather than simply apologise. The Princess is great for meeting for a drink but I would recommend not eating in this establishment.More

Food ok. Had a problem with drunk loud people sitting next to us so did not finish food because of their behaviour. (Apparently regulars) Spoke to manager about the situation and she was very apologetic but we still paid for all our food and drinks...despite having a dreadful experience. I understand that the management can't control these situations but I dont think it's acceptable to end up paying the full bill when we did not enjoy our experience. Will not be going back.More

Excellent Christmas menu. This was truly amazing. Having attending many Christmas meals over many (ahem) years and so many disappointing ones. The princess truly excelled and provided a beautiful turkey dinner. I think it was definitely the best I’ve ever had. Lots of turkey including...a Yorkshire pudding and so many vegetables. Red cabbage and carrot mash were my favourites. And the cabbage and cauliflower and broccoli. My work colleagues all thoroughly enjoyed their choices too. Very substantial sticky toffee pudding too. Lots of cleared plates. And the lady who served us was so friendly and welcoming. Well done team princess you really did us (and yourselves) proudMore
