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.

This is a great place for good food at a reasonable price. We had a 2 course meal each with drinks for under £30. The service was quick, everyone was pleasant & polite and the food was good. Very good value for money.

Been here many a time and food always been good. Today, Steak pie and the chips were very dry and did not enjoy. My biggest gripe today is the young waitress chewing her gum, not hiding the fact she had gum in mouth but while...taking our order blatantly eating the gum with mouth open. Not only us that noticed but folks at next table were also talking about her. Highly unprofessional!!! Friends daughter works in a different establishment at weekends doing lunches and chewing gum is a big no no! Come on Jackie get tough with your staff, who wants her breathing over their food while she’s chewing her gumMore

Having stayed in Forfar for five years I am ashamed to admit I've never been to this place until this week when my parents came down for a visit. Old style pub with very friendly staff, lots to choose from on the menu but we...decided on the two courses for £8.75 having a main and dessert. The plates were full having had fish and chips, slow cooked steak pie and macaroni, with dessert of sticky toffee pudding, hot chocolate fudge cake and apple crumble served with ice cream, cream or custard. Will be back as absolutely loved it.More

First time visit to this hotel for lunch. Excellent service and a great menu. Went for the two course lunch at £8.95 which was terrific value. Have to commend the two staff who were on duty front of house. Will definitely be back.

Recently went to listen to some live music here with a friend. When we arrived we were called over quite snippily by one female member of staff who wanted to check our ID. She rejected two forms of ID from me for no reason, saying...that my first ID could be fake, and my driving license was not accepted for no reason. She then said neither of us would be served, giving no explanation. We decided to stay at the bar to listen to the music and went into the toilet. However, while we were in the toilets, she quietly followed us into the bathroom. We were unaware of her being there and spoke about her rude behaviour earlier. After she heard the comments made, she threw us out of the pub. Very odd and rude behaviour from this member of staff.More

Popped by with friends on a Friday evening for drinks.The service received from the female on duty was wholly unsatisfactory-the worst we have probably encountered. We ordered a bottle of prosecco for 3 of us .The bottle itself and contents were warm as indeed was...one of the wine glasses-no flutes here-which clearly had just come out of the washer,no attempt having been made to cool it down.Was not an inexpensive purchase either! The other drink-a spirit and mixer arrived without a slice of lemon/lime.None the four of us are likely to return.More
