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 to book the Wake for my step mothers funeral and stayed for a late lunch. Great menu, proper pub lunch, good portions, very tasty and a fab price. The service was also great. Very nice garden area too. The cost for the Wake refreshments...provided by Angela was brilliant and the food that will be included was much more than I anticipated. All in all a lovely little pub off the beaten track of Dartford Town centre. I will definitely be returning.More
