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.

My husband and I decided to visit The Shire Grill on New Year’s Eve as a celebratory meal to end the year. The social media platforms paint this venue to be bustling and fun with boasts of great food and service. Despite making a booking...online days previous, the staff looked at us dumbfounded when we arrived and didn’t have our table reserved. The server came over to take our order and rather than stand by the side of the table and write our order on his pad, he put his pad down onto the table in front of me and awkwardly leaned into my personal space whist writing the order right under my nose. I’ve never experienced this and just made me feel so uncomfortable, along with it being extremely unprofessional. The same waiter then took our drinks to the wrong table, handed them to the customer before recalling them back to bring over to us. An understandable mistake if it was busy, but there was only 3 tables dining at 7:40PM. We were given our popadom appetizers, which was closely followed by our main course plates which were plonked on the edge of the table, cutlery balanced on top. Now, I’m all for casual service but bringing the plates with the main meal is the appropriate method of service. The main course arrived and apart from the sizzling skillet of chicken tikka, everything was bland and tasteless. We were given no napkins, nor did staff did a checkback on us and I eventually had to flag a member of staff down to request napkins. A little pile of the tinest, poorest quality napkins were left on the corner of our table. The venue was heavily staffed, with the waiting staff standing by the kitchen visibly looking like they would rather be elsewhere. The crossed arms and failure to acknowledge the 3 tables makes for poor service. My husband visited the toilet and reported that only 1 out of the 4 lightbulbs worked, that the toilet was barely bolted to the ground and that it was dirty and dingy. The casual, almost non existent service aside, for the price we paid (£50), we could have dined at a much nicer Indian restaurant in town where tables are dressed with folded napkins and decor, food arrives plated or you are provided with hot warm plates, and you have attentive servers doing checkbacks. Atmosphere is also important to the feeling of a venue and this just didn’t hit the mark. The dirty wonky TVs in the booths and the loud pop music in a nearly empty building just felt very awkward. Extremely disappointing.More

Yesterday I ordered a curry online with a gif card with Just eat to collect at 16.30. Arrived to collect at 16.20 at which point I had a text to say the order wasn't successful when I arrived. The person serving behind the bar said...there systems wasn't on. I had to pay by card for the meal which should have been free. I was then told it would it would take 10 minutes to get served. 20 minutes later after prompting I go my food and left. During this period another pair which came in after ordered and were served at their table. No apology from the person serving and I wasn't offered a drink whilst waiting. Food was ok not amazing. Awful service and I won't be going back again.More

A great meal for a special birthday celebration. Quality of dishes and the right portion sizes meant it was a pretty much all consumed even though we thought we'd ordered too much. A DJ was playing a great set and although the whole ambience was...a tad loud it was a great time and my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.More

The service is always great, but the quality of the new menu was amazing. One of our group had the butter chicken naan pizza, and the was described as “expletive“ delicious. My lovely wife had a Punjabi chicken curry, also delicious and I thoroughly enjoyed...the hot chicken jalfrezi, amazing. The prices are reasonable, the environment fab the music acceptable, all in all, great food at reasonable prices.More

My wife and I came here for a "romantic" meal... (actually kids were at my parents' so we decided to come here). I've been a few times and enjoyed. This time was no different. Good food, lovely atmosphere (at the time we were there), and...prices were as expected. Staff are friendly and professional. Can't give it a perfect score as the food, which is good, didn't have an equal variety of all the sizzlers we would like, and there were more of the lower value items, as you'd probably expect. Unlikely to come again as a couple, but more likely to go with a large group.More

Went to collect a take away as I’ve been looking forward to a nice curry all weekend. Got it home and put the lot straight into the bin. Didn’t even plate it as it was so bad. The curry looked like sick and was bland...with no taste 🤮 I asked for plain chicken noodles with no veg, and once opened was full of onions and some cabbage looking stuff, very little chicken. The rice was cold, the only bit that passed my mouth was a bit off naan bread to dip in the curry or should I say the sick. I will never be returning there or recommending it to anyone. Complete waste of money and time. £35 down the drain.More

Food is always fantastic but the quality of the food doesn’t match with the poorly maintained restaurant. Arrived at 16:15 , cold, empty, no music, no staff, stood around for ten minutes waiting for a sign of life. Decided to takeaway in the end as...the place was so shoddy. Bartender’s mates turned up and they were riding an electric scooter around the bar and restaurant. Will certainly never dine in but for takeaway it’s fab food.More

First time visit and won’t be the last, food, staff and atmosphere all great. Being a vegetarian, I thought the mix grill and soya options were fantastic. Will definitely visit again, only improvement I feel could be made is more staff, seemed a little thin...on the ground, other than that, all good.More
