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.

Amazing food!! Incredible hospitality! We had a great time at this bar and restaurant. The pub is family owned and they make you feel like family. The food was bomb! Would highly recommend!

Saw this establishment become really popular for it's sharing seafood special and was lulled in by Instagram marketing. Do not fall for this. Videos circulating show an abundance of seafood including huge, juicy prawns, clams, mussels, small crabs and squid but what you actually get...is one and a half crab, maybe eight small shrimp, a couple of baby squid, some calamari and some baby corn and cherry tomatoes. No clams, no mussels, no fish. The sauce was nice and had a good amount of heat but considering this was a sharing platter, it was really disappointing. We didn't bother with dessert, not because we were stuffed but because we wanted something more substantial as we just were not quite satisfied. Staff are friendly, if not a little awkward but no complaints about service. Will try again in future but will not be recommending to friends.More

The seafood shovel was cooked to perfection and was booming with flavour. The staff was extreamly accommodating and we will be back very soon

A lovely selection of beers available. The food this evening was by Serendib which was lovely. Hopper bowls with Sri Lankan and Scottish filling options. My wife and I had one of each plus a portion of Kattu. We opted for spicy. The food was...delicious and a lovely change. Service was excellent also.More

A friend of mine booked a table for Christmas dinner online for 4 of us (15/12/23). She then also phoned the place to ask whether we need to pre-order the meals and was told that there is no need to pre-order for parties of less...than 8 people. When we arrived and said we had a booking, the young waitress, upon finding out that we made reservation online, let out a loud sigh and in a rather assertive voice said that the online booking system does not work and they do not have an access to it. At this point we did not realise how much of an issue it would become as the place was essentially empty and we did not have to pre-order the meal so really there should have been no problem at all anyway. We were shown to a table with 'ugh I guess we can serve you' and when the waitress realised we still wanted a meal she told us 'I guess I'm just going to get shouted at by the manager but that's fine', obviously sounding like it was anything but fine and somehow this was also our fault. We sat at the table for at least 10 minutes (place still not busy) without being even acknowledged or given menus, and only after I got up to get the menus from the bar the waitress remembered that we existed and came over asking if we were ready to order. I asked for the Christmas menu to which she reacted that she cannot give us the Christmas menu as they already have people booked in who have pre-ordered the meal. I replied that we were told we do not need to pre-order, but it turned out that somehow they had the exact amount of portions for that day (quite impressive that the bar staff knows exactly what the kitchen does or does not have - I used to work behind the bar and I would have had no clue unless I would specifically go and ask). Neither the waitress, nor the bartender bothered to go check with the kitchen at any point whether this was true or not. When my friend went to speak to the male bartender, she was told that they need to maintain certain level of standard and we cannot be given a Christmas dinner - completely omitting the fact that they were actively lowering the 'standard' by treating us with zero remorse or respect. Not sure what made the other customers more important than us. By this point we genuinely felt like the waitress would end up spitting into our meal if we did stay, so we just left. It is a shame really, as this whole situation could have been avoided if the staff had just slightly better attitude. Nobody had once apologised to us for the misunderstanding, they had an attitude throughout the whole interaction essentially making us feel like it was all our fault and we were very much unwanted and, unsurprisingly, we were never offered any alternative (e.g. have food from the regular menu with a small discount). I appreciate that festive season can be a very stressful time for hospitality services, but I have not experienced such a terrible customer service in a very long time - if ever. Even if the food and drink were amazing (which we never got to find out), I will never come back again purely because of the staff behaviour.More

We came in a Tuesday which is burger night. For only 7,99 they offer a tasty burger and a pint, that's cheap. The burger was good, we added some Fries and the meal was perfect. Bar tender gave us a small history lessen on the...building which is an old Church. We will come back hereMore
