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.

Visited with my family today for the kids Easter party. We had a family meal and our little one enjoyed the glitter tattoos, balloons and a visit from the Easter bunny. Staff were fantastic, fast service and food was top notch. Great drink selection -...both soft and alcoholic. Beth and Caitlin made sure we were attended to and our wee one was enjoying themselves. We will be back 😊More

A group of us decided to meet in the counting house prior to heading out for the evening. The selection of draught lagers was excellent and no complaints. So much so our meeting to go out lasted 3 hours. To a man we will be...using again. We noted they also served meals and it has been logged for the future.More

Fantastic bar. We have visited this bar quite a few times, including today and had drinks and lunch. The staff are extremely friendly and efficient and they are also so nice to any dogs that are visiting, including our own. Food and drinks are great,...especially the chicken wings. All staff great, including: Viviene, Caitlin, Chloe, Anna and brother and sister that work there (can't remember their names). Definitely recommend, homely, relaxed atmosphere and great for all, so many different areas to sit. The bar shows different sports too and good music, especially at weekends.More

We've been to the Counting House several times now and have never failed to be impressed. You very seldom have to wait too long to be served, and if there is going to be a short wait, the staff will at least acknowledge you. The...service is also friendly and professional, and our dog is also welcomed and provided with a bowl of water. The food is very good and fresh, and they serve an excellent pint of Guinness! A special mention to Caitlin and Chloe.More
