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.

Very disappointing! Went for dinner before an event. The food is shockingly bad. Ordered hunters chicken - tiny pale chicken breast with a strip of flabby bacon, tiny dump of cheese on top - semi melted and a smudge of bbq sauce. No one offered...condiments and the meal for 2 plus to cokes was £30. Utter rubbish - never againMore

Pre match meal for 3. We had 2 pizzas and some sides. Service was good but the food was pretty average. Pizzas quite sloppy. They are geared up to get you in and out quickly.

We came here as a group of 4 before a pantomime at the velodrome. We all had burgers and were waiting for these for 1 hour before being served, they tasted okay. We then had 4 desserts which again took a long time to be...served and when they came out all 4 of them were wrong. These were took off the bill in fairness to them to compensate. Overall a disappointing experience and would not return.More

Mediocre food and service. Food on a par with catering van in car park. Big delays ordering and then 10 minutes after food served to get ketchup.

Came in on match day. Restaurant was busy was served by two young girls, one had dark black hair and was lovely, really attentive, the other had blonde hair which she had down for some reason this made my blood boil as she is serving...food and had long hair! Basic hygiene rules clearly out the window. I believe she was a manger as was the other lady as they had white shirts on but the rest of the staff were in blue! Food was ok, and drinks at the bar were good staff were really friendly and welcoming! I would just say that the blonde lady was overwhelmed and had to many tables so we were forgotten as were other tables! And she came across as rude and arrogant because she was so busy don’t think she wanted to be there! But thank you to the other staff member who saved the day! Would probably return but not on a match day.More

Had quite a wait while Manager decided which vacant table we could have. Friend's main was not as described and looked like it had just been thrown on plate. Manager rudely asked what she wanted then returned meal minus correct replacement. My main and desserts...- average.More

We came to the bar on Sunday afternoon to meet friends for a drink and to watch the football and we will most definitely NOT be returning !!! We were told at half time that we were unable to buy anymore drinks as the manager...had decided to leave early and therefore the tills has all been closed off. In the end we went to the merlin across the road where the drinks were half the price. Atmosphere and service was much better over there.More
