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.

They cancelled a booking 20 minutes before the scheduled time. No explanation or apology was provided. However as we had travelled already to the venue we went in and found a table and have been very surprised at the number of free tables that apparently...were reserved. We enjoyed the location as it is set in a beautiful building and the food was very good.More

Awful customer service at the bar and took ages to be served. Staff would not except a valid blue light discount on a weekend, using the excuse it was bank holiday Saturday. Since when did we start having bank holiday Saturdays? Under their terms and...conditions the voucher is valid on any day including weekends but it is not valid on a bank holiday ie bank holiday Monday. The voucher is therefore still valid on the weekend!More

Absolutely Fantastic experience for mine and my partners first time here! Food was fantastic and Jenny was an absolute angel. Couldn’t fault that woman if I tired! Made us feel very welcome, sat us at a great table and recommended the best food. Very friendly...and chatty. Like I said couldn’t fault her if I tired! Ladies at the bar were just as lovely. Hats off the chef we cooked/prepared our food perfectly. Would recommend again and again! Thank you guys Natalie and MatthewMore

Cannot believe in a couple of years how it has changed , no staff so order at bar in a queue that had 11 in-front of us , took ages to come and it was cold when it did. Felt sorry for the staff as...they were doing their best but it was a shambles . As for the furniture honestly the seats were a disgrace , totally ruined and peeling . This was one of my favourite places a few years back but please shut it down , give it a makeover and get it back to how it wasMore

This venue is truly unique and beautiful! The food was good, we had the vegetarian skewer and chicken. Unfortunately, we had the rain during our visit, but I'd imagine this place is great for a leisurely walk by the lake. Superb service from Jenny and...Beth! Overall, it is highly recommended 👌🏼More

With a pub like this you know what you are going to get. Bang average food and a poor selection of real ales. However, the evening was saved by the Beth our server. She was helpful, confident and attentive.

I do NOT recommend you eat here! This must be one of the worst meals I have ever had! This was not fresh, the meals are ping meals and when I asked about the chicken which was tough and cold, I was told they buy...it in cooked! Surroundings are very tired and could do with a revamp!More

To add to this as a member of the party, I had my 3 and 1 year old grandsons with me. We had to keep the 1 year old awake by walking him around by the lake, and as a consequence I left with him without us having our deserts as he was becoming upset. Due to the ongoing problem with orders and Rachel having to collate them on our behalf we only had 13 deserts anyway, and as we were 1 coffee short I decided to make the shortfall my own. Before we came the party leader was telephoned to say there were no roasts (on a Sunday!) and one of our party members had to make 3 choices before he found something. A vegan was almost served a meat burger. The lettuce looked like it should have been binned a week ago. But I would add, the staff member who served us was amazing and did everything he could to help us. Just so sorry this made my nephews birthday celebration had so many problems.
