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.

Pretty outside ,spacious and comfortable in. Good menu choice. As someone who doesn’t like chicken it’s sometimes hard to find something I would want, here that isn’t a problem.

Very poor, ordered Gammon Steak Two Small pieces of baked hem arrived on a plate and a portion of frys. To say it was a sad looking plate of food was an understatement. They are plenty more establishments crying out for our business and it...looks like this is not one of them. P.S. Staff were made aware before we left of how dissatisfied we felt.More
