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.

Stayed at the caravan site and dined at the venue a few times throughout our stay. The restaurant is independently owned so had to pay for food and drinks separately but both the restaurant and bar staff were extremely accommodating and helpful! Kids really enjoyed...the soft play (they didn’t want to leave). One night I had pizza which was delicious and the staff were very knowledgeable and helpful regarding the menu which my partner appreciated as they have a dairy allergy. Was recommended a lovely Welsh gin by the bar staff who were lovely and chatty making us feel like locals whilst on holiday. Will definitely return again!More

Lovely food on Monday evening (worth the £95 for our family of four). Our meal unfortunately was disturbed by a group of bored children playing 'catch' in the restaurant! Parents nowhere to be seen, and waiters did not intervene. The ball hit our table so...we moved and sat in the bar area to finish our meals. Bit disappointed as we rarely eat out, and we probably wouldn't return.More

We had Sunday Lunch at the Purple Badger. IT WAS AMAZING….WOULD GIVE TEN STARS 🌟 IF WE COULD!! First, the service… the best we have had in some years. Every member of staff could not do any more for us. They were attentive, yet discreet....Then, the food… Sunday Lunch We had the chicken liver pate for starter. Delicious, accompanied by a salad, toast, and onion chutney. The salad dressing was divine and really brought up the level of an already tasty and well proportioned plate. My husband had roast beef and I had roast turkey for mains. The meat was perfectly cooked and plentiful, sitting on a butternut squash cream. Vegetables came to the table in a separate dish, as did cauliflower cheese. Roast potatoes, parsnip and Yorkshire puddings plated with the meat. I’m hard to please, with two sons who are pro chefs, but I can tell you, that roast was A++. With a roast lunch, there is no-where to hide bad cooking or ingredients and this meal had neither. We rounded the meal off with a cheesecake and ice cream, which did not disappoint and met our expectations which were by that point, rather high. In short….go there! The food and service both top notch.More

No the restaurant is not dog friendly but they have a lovely outdoor eating area with fab views and the dogs are allowed. There is a large gazebo there as well and would recommend you try it because the food is excellent
