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 here with my daughter as we were staying in Peterborough for the night. The food was amazing. There was only 1 person serving, however, any drinks that were ordered came very quickly. The barman was also really happy, pleasant and funny. It was a...nice atmosphere with a real fire.More

Brilliant food, my beer battered fish was one of the best I have had. Service was excellent, we had two small children with us, no problems to them at all. Just a shame the crazy golf was closed, but this is a more seasonal thing.

A warm welcome but a tad cold in restaurant, also needs a bit of ambiance. But the food there was great, there were 6 of us two had sea bass which was divine, maybe another veg (personal choice) and a tad more sauce. One had...pie he said delicious and the gravy fab! Had extra gravy… Pizza nice and thin good. Duck great would have liked another veg rather than just one. Fish and chips huge, again personal choice maybe a choice of side rather than peas. Two brownie and ice cream deserts again really good. This restaurant is great just a little on expensive side to be a regular visit, we went for birthday treat. 🥳More

Popped in for a Sunday Roast and we were met with a lovely roaring fire, nice surroundings and a very friendly greeting. The very quickly served roast lamb and roast beef we had between us were perfect, with more than enough to eat. Finish off...with fudge cake and treacle pudding.
