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.

I travel all over the UK and Ireland and stay and eat in places that vary from chain hotels and restaurants to independently owned bars, restaurants and hotels so I feel I can give a good comparison. Without doubt this is the best restaurant in...Hamilton and I think I would struggle to find something close anywhere near the area. Not only is it a family run restaurant, and a lovely family at that, but even though I visit every 2-3 months they remember me, treat me so well and make me want to come back. I have ready the few negative reviews and cannot disagree more. I have eaten most of the menu, love trying the specials and have never felt I have been overcharged. I would urge anyone that appreciates good food, friendly and amazing service, and a beautiful atmosphere to try this place out. Extra points that the toilets are spotless and warm - I can only comment about the gents toilets! Any business that invests in the comfort of guests during an energy crisis get my vote.More

Whether you are going for lunch, early dinner or late dinner it doesn't matter, the high standard is a constant. Attentive staff complement the good atmosphere, the food is of a high quality, very pleasant surroundings allow both for a discrete evening or a family...friends group. Attention to detail so important - on booking the first time asked if they had any ale, so many Italian restaurants provide only lager (normal excuse being there is no demand), when I arrived for my meal they had bought some in for me - how good is that?More

We've really enjoyed this restaurant in the past, great food and good service. We decided to go for fillet steaks today and they were awful, burnt on the outside and chewy. We don't like to complain but did mention it and were told it may...be a supplier issue and the steaks may have been inferior in quality than they're used to but the middle of both steaks were lovely so that's confusing? Our hosts charged us for both steaks at £31 each, their acknowledgement of the poor quality and apology was compensated with a free bottle of wine, nothing off the steaks. Really poor. Doubt we will be back which is a shame as their menu was decent previously and their customer service matched that but today was really disappointing.More

First visit to this restaurant, and certainly won't be the last! The food was exceptional. Myself, my wife and my daughter all had the same starter and main course. We had the Scallops to start with. Very tasty and well presented. We then had the...rack of lamd which was on the daily specials menu. The lamb was cooked to perfection, was very tender and tasted incredible. We followed this with 2 x apple crumble and 1 x sticky toffee pudding. Again absolutely delicious. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend this lovely eating place.More

I ate here in 2020 and really enjoyed it. I couldn’t possibly say the same about my recent visit. The service was great, but just about everything else was poor, very poor. I feel actually quite ripped off 😕 Okay where do I start….. First...of all the prices on the menu were astronomical for a small Hamilton restaurant. I ordered a large red wine. It was the cheapest of the cheap, a real watery version of any Primitivo I’ve ever had. (I’ve never had a bad Primitivo before!) My friends mushroom risotto was mushy and a tiny portion. I ordered lasagne. It was okay but the portion size was laughable. Imagine a block of butter. Yup. That’s what it resembled size wise. A block of butter. I honestly wanted to send it back or ask for a reduction in price, but I didn’t want to embarrass my friend, as she was paying for dinner. If you charge these sort of prices you MUST provide a standard of food worthy of the price. You are flying by the seat of your pants 21!More

Had a family celebration meal yesterday at this wonderful restaurant. The food, atmosphere, and service are all terrific. The place is spotlessly clean. The menus offer so much choice and great value for money. Staff are attentive and friendly and make you feel very welcome....Special thanks to the lovely Neve who looked after us. Great for families and couples alike. We have had a few family celebrations here and will most definitely have more. Recommend to all. Thanks to all the staff.More
