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.

Best gluten free menu I've seen, lots of choice, and great desserts (very unusual for gluten free). Lovely service, great food, we'll definitely be back. Special thanks to Lilly and Mollie for cheerful, friendly and professional service

30 family & friends went to the Gordon Arms for my retirement party. We hired the room and had a buffet. From booking with a team leader he was very helpful ( Sorry we don’t know his name) right to the end of the evening...everything went smoothly, nothing was too much trouble. Food was excellent and plenty of it. Cailin was very attentive and on many occasions came to see if everything was ok. Waitresses serving the food were very helpful and friendly as of all the staff. We would certainly book and recommend for an occasion like this again. We couldn’t praise Cailin and the male team leader enough. For such a special and memorable occasion.More

Not amazing food but service great. I've given 3 stars for the staff but wasn't impressed with the meal.!!.I had Hunters chicken which was very hard and dry, I had it with boiled potatoes which some were hard and undercooked, I'm not a chip lover...but they seem to serve them with everything. Decided to visit as we live so close and reviews are good, maybe we were unlucky but it's put me off visiting again.More

Visited at lunchtime today. It is a regular venue for us but I fear that may no longer be the case. No draught beers. Service poor. Food nowhere near up to usual standard. Meagre portions and cold chips. Not worth sending them back since all...other meals would then be cold. No offer of bringing freshly cooked chips to the table. Informed the waitress of the issue. Three meals ordered one came out nearly 5 minutes after the first two. Had booked another table for Saturday for 4 people but have cancelled it due to bad experience today and my visitors will be travelling from Southampton and need decent fare.More

The two of us visited The Gordon Arms for lunch today. It must be decades ago when we last had a meal there. My husband chose a salad while l had scampi and chips. We were served quickly by a very pleasant young lady. Our...meals were delicious and nicely presented. We had cheesecake and apple crumble for desserts, followed by coffees. This was a great experience. We had booked beforehand, a wise move because because the pub was full.More

Right eight of us went to the Gordon Arms for a rare family dinner, on the whole the experience was favourable all the meals were very good and enjoyed by all apart from one meal which was was very poor, the meal in question was...the cod and chips, the issue was the cod firstly there was not very much of it and it was extremely dry, secondly and the main reason for the moan was the batter it was cooked in, it was an extremely dark brown colour and virtually burnt which suggests whatever it was fried in is in desperate need of changing, we noticed several orders of cod and chips being carried out and all had the very dark burnt colour, cod in batter ideally should be a light golden colour. I would go back but would never have Cod and chips again.More
