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.

Very reasonably priced, but portions can be small and quality hit and miss. Staff friendly and efficient - bit of a mixed bag with bar very busy with cheap drinks promotions in the afternoons. overall worth a visit - was disappointed with the promotional menu...- will stick to the main menu next time.More

What a shambles! We close our food and went to order and bedsides the attitude from the lady at the bar everything I tried to order had out of stock items like salad and eggs so they couldn’t put it through the till 🤷🏼‍♂️ they...had eggs but couldn’t cook them due to the clam being broken and I was shocked to find out that the kitchen doesn’t possess I frying pan 🤷🏼‍♂️🤷🏼‍♂️ needless to say we left and have gone elsewhere.. this isn’t the first time that they’ve been out of stock of food either!!!More

We went here for a meal. I had sirloin steak which was like boot leather... Hubby has half roast chicken that was over cooked and dry. The place was freezing 🥶 I ate with my coat and scarf on. We would've liked another drink but...had to leave as it was too cold to stay. We've visited many Wetherspoon pubs and they do vary enormously.More

First visit to The Mardy since the relaxation of lockdown, as I would expect a first class service as usual. Greeted on arrival, filled in a track and trace form and shown to the table. Food was outstanding as you would expect, served quickly and...hot! Great service from the staff!More

had food in the garden (car park) last week. The place was very quiet and staff seemed to be standing around chatting mostly. The place was stinking food in flower beds and all over the floor. fag buts everywhere. this was early lunch time so...wasn't as if they'd had a busy day and the mess was from earlier that days... these had been there for days by the looks of them. bbq pizza was a tomato pizza with bbq sauce squirted on top. wasn't nice at all. chicken burger was burnt and meals came out at different times. won't be returning!More

Took my family out for a birthday meal, never again. The Carpet in the conservatory was absolutely stinking and covered in food and crumbs. The Breakfast we received was sub standard with burnt toast and sausages so well cooked that they contained no meat. To...top it all off they gad run out of beans before 10.30 in the morning. I can safely say I will not be returning to a place that used to be spotless and who did great grub. Please Avoid this place and save your money.More

Waited over an hour for food, cleaned table ourselves as staff were busy chatting to each other. Food finally came and my double burger came with one burger and something else that appeared to be half eaten. Also forgot chips off other meal. Told staff...member who said a manager would come over which was to no avail. Poor all round, won’t be going back.More

We usually call into the York Palace, but decided to stop here, thinking a spoons is much the same. A big mistake, with our choice that night it was Curry night. It was not busy, I was going to order via the app, but because...I wanted a small bowl of chips I had to go to the bar. Or was, 1 Korma, 1 Tikka Masala, and a small bowl of chips, and drinks from the deal. On returning to our table I could see that I had indeed paid for a large bowl of chips, and not a small. When our food arrived, the Korma was way down in the dish with very little sause! The rice looked very dry, even crisp. The large bowl of chips was half full, and certainly not worth the cost. The Tikka was ok. The Korma when poured out over the curry was very poor, with no sause really. We waited for a call back to the table by a member of staff to see if all was ok, that never happened. So in a nutshell, we paid well over the odd for a very poor meal. It was way below what we have come to expect from a spoons establishment. Certainly room for improvement.More
