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.

Over-priced Christmas menu with no other option available. If other menus not available update your website! Sorry but I don't want a Christmas menu on 24 November?! Decidedly average service - at times constantly asking questions but then staff disappear when needed. No atmosphere and...very average food - overcooked dry burger. Won't be back.More

Visited on a Saturday afternoon for food and drinks, nice decor, clean and fresh. Waitress was polite and friendly but the service was dreadful. Long waits between ordering drinks and receiving them, food order taken wrong causing delay in receiving food and when food arrived...it was very bland, unfortunately I wouldn’t recommend or visit again.More

You can’t expect to be successful when customers are waiting 15 minutes between drink orders. Nothing to do with the waitresses but poor organisation from the management. Half empty on a Saturday evening doesn’t bode well for the place. Also had to put up with...some reptile laughing at me for wearing a mask inside.More

The service is horrendous. Their system chaotic .Repeatedly ask waiters,managers, staff anyone for a drinks order eventually got a drink after a long wait . Our food was awful, steak was burnt and had to be sent back and the burger wasn’t much better ....The place has been total revamped and is a lovely a bar /restaurant but something needs to chance to make it work .More

We ate outside- tables were dirty. Ordered food and drinks- the food came with no cutlery or salt etc- had to go inside twice to request them- the drinks didn’t arrive until after we finished our food- very unpleasant experience.

Service was great until 9pm then went badly down hill. Waited over ,40 mins for drink after repeated confusion from staff on what we had ordered. Meanwhile watched others getting drinks ordered after ours before us. Very frustrating experience and wont be back. Would have...been happy with complementary drink but no, totally amateur operation.More

Came for a visit yesterday in the new rebranded name Millies and was stunned at first sight.. lovely staff, food was incredible and the new manager was lovely, she couldnt get us a table at first but was offered drinks at the tent until table...was free which is fine considering current situation. Once seated on our table i thought she was very pleasant with us and her upselling was very impressive, great attitude! The food came and it was yummy! Big upgrade from Mcglones to Millies, from lovely staff to excellent food! WelldoneMore

Went tonight for some food and drinks, under the new name millies. Safe to say we won’t be back- the place was super busy with no social distancing being put in place. People queuing and crawling over each other (not sure if queuing at the...bar is even allowed with new rules in place), with no masks being worn when not sat in your seat. We waited 10 minutes for a menu, when I asked a waiter for a menu I was told to ask for someone else. Surely I shouldn’t have to wait for an appropaite staff member to get me a menu? Service was slow but we got there in the end, bruschetta and chicken wings to start with two Christmas dinners for mains which were great. The male waiter (who wore glasses) was great, upsold us sides which we ordered as we were very hungry, but when they arrived the onion rings were dripping in grease and we didn’t eat any(this wasn’t noticed by the waiter nor were we asked was everything okay until we were paying this bill). Clearance took ages - the cocktail I ordered was supposed to be a bramble but was far from it. All in all, very disappointed. We felt very unsafe which proceeded us to leave early. During the pandemic we all know we can’t behave as normal, but apparently the rules don’t apply in Millies. Queues for the bar, little to no one wearing masks, we were charged for an extra drink on our bill which we didn’t order. Complete let down and left feeling very ignored and unsatisfied.More

Visited here today with my son for lunch & what can I say, apart from it was a great experience! The waitress ( Becca ) recommended the veggie burrito & it had to be the best I’ve ever tasted, and there was so much I...brought some home. My son had the sticky chicken and took half of his home also as the portions are so big. Becca went out of her way to make us and everyone else in the bar/restaurant feel welcome. She is an excellent asset to a hospitality establishment. We’ll definitely be back. Thank you.More

The food, service and atmosphere is second to none. The only thing that needs to improve is the quality of TV's for the sport - if this was sorted out I would be there every weekend.

I popped into Mc’s for the first time yesterday (Tue 22 Jan) to have a wee drink. I was initially impressed with the inside of the bar - clean, tidy, warm and a friendly ambience. My meet and greet lass ‘Beck-‘A’’ was a friendly efficient...lass and she made me feel very welcome. I had not intended to dine in the pub but then I realized it served food so I decided to have my tea. ‘Beck’ quickly took my order - chicken curry, chips and pepper sauce. My meal was delicious - generous portions, great quality and all at a very fair price. I decided to have a coffee and I requested this from Terence - the barman. He too was friendly, professional, courteous and certainly an asset to the establishment. I loved the place and have no hesitation recommending it.More
