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.

I have been several times with friends and generally had good meals, waitresses are pleasant but have had long waits on occasions.

Lovely lunch-a quick bite with a friend. We sat in the tastefully decorated bar and service was fast and friendly. I had the fish finger sandwich and it was a generous portion with tasty cibatta. Great value too.

Standard chain pub grub not too bad. Had to wait 35 mins for the food to arrive but it was edible. Looking a bit grubby in places and there had clearly been something going on with the staff as you could cut the atmosphere with...a knife.More

I'm not really a fan of these chain restaurants, but today I was pleasantly surprised. A family of 6, plus 7 month old baby, landed for Sunday lunch. We pre booked so we seated immediately. The service was really good from our waitress. Several drinks...order as people arrived at different times. I had the sea bass, which was really nice. Others had Sunday roasts, vegetarian option, and a burger. Portions were good and the food was hot. We didn't sample the desserts unfortunately. A lovely meal all round.More

It was my first time here, we'd heard good things about the food and we weren't disappointed. We opted for the lunch menu, 3 courses for £20 and we were all delighted with our choices. The arancini starter was one of the tastiest plates I've...eaten in a long time. I was really pleased to see vegan options, always a treat for me. There were also veggie options too. The portions were very generous, the service was excellent as was the ambience. I'm very excited to return with my dogs as they are not just dog friendly they actually have a doggie menu! Would thoroughly recommend.More
