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.

Lovely pub and food, service could be better but a lovely girl called Victoria single handled the place being on the floor herself and tried her best to get round all customers, Telfords very lucky to have her :)

Came for the beyond burgers which,at this point is the only plant based main course on the menu but they don't have any and only have bar snacks as an alternative. I understand that from next week they will have them back but for today...we will have to find somewhere else to eat. Not the plan, which is disappointing as we like this place.More

Three of us popped in here for a beer and some lunch . We hadn’t booked but were able to get a table . The girl who served us was very friendly and welcoming . The bar is obviously pet friendly as there were a...number of dogs in the bar and they were all well behaved . The beer and food was decent and prices were what you would expect . The thing that stood out to me was that the background tunes were very good . Creating a nice atmosphere in the place . Overall we had a nice afternoon and will definetly visit again .More

Popped in for a quick drink on Sunday afternoon at 2pm to be told we could not order 2 drinks from the bar as they were understaffed . No queue at the bar plenty of free tables and 2 staff behind the bar. Very poor...customer service and management if they can’t handle an order for 2 drinks at the bar. Lots of other alternatives available near by will not be back !More

My daughter and I went along to what used to be a fabulous place for lunch but never again. The place was freezing cold and the service was appalling. Wasn't even busy so no excuses. We ordered a hot chocolate each while we picked our...lunch. After a wait of over 15 minutes we were given a cup of hot milk with little or no chocolate. We then proceeded to place our order from the menu only to be told we could only select from one side of the menu so we had to change our choices. Meals arrived and the soup was cold, the chicken burger was deep fried in a thick batter and the ketchup that was asked for never arrived at all. A very disappointing Friday lunch date. DREADFULMore

A friend and I popped in for some lunch and as the beer garden was extremely busy we opted to eat inside, the waitress came and took our drinks order no hello, welcome,smile no manners. She then went back to the door and stood chatting...with another waitress. The solo barman who was serving both indoors and outdoors placed our drink on a tray on the bar our waitress walked past the tray 3 times eventually another waitress picked it up and was looking around rather puzzled the wrong table number was on the order, I waved to the waitress to indicate it was ours and it was put on the table. The original waitress came back to take our food order again very unfriendly, she then dumped 2 sets of cutlery wrapped in paper napkin on the table not even eye contact. The staff seemed very young and not a bit of knowledge of the hospitality industry. Further more the food was terribleMore

This place is now called Telfords. Went for dinner with friends and had a table booked for 7.30 on a Saturday night. Despite the place being half empty, they had no chicken or steak left!!! They only toms us this after serving us drinks. What...a joke! I’ll never be back and I’d definitely advise anyone else to avoid.More

Just had a lovely meal today, friendly staff and food really tasty and well presented. Under new management and doing a great job. Overcharged on our bill for drinks, but swiftly rectified.We will definitely be back as they have real ale too.

Booked at least six weeks in advance for a Xmas meal. Arrived and was handed a bar menu.After refusing menu we were given Xmas menu. Ordered pork tureen for starter very bland apart from.onion and salad but the massive disappointment was main.turkey dinner see photo...of how it was presented.looked as though leftover dishes had been scraped on to plate.Found parsnip,pigs in blankets buried under a pile of mash. Roast potatoes overcooked and also under mash.Brussels sprouts massively undercooked.Have been here several times for Xmas meals in the past and really enjoyed. Unfortunately the only thing saving this poorly presented meal was the waiting staff who were apologetic and very pleasant. We received two glasses of wine as compensation but paid £75 for a really substandard meal. Won't be backMore

A few friends & I went in for drinks on Saturday night, we'd been before and had enjoyed.However it was on another level on Saturday as there's now a house band who played as many "classic" new & old songs as I've heard for an...age.
