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.

Food was superb and the service was equally excellent. It is one of the best places to take clients for a meal, or just enjoy yourself! Accommodation is fantastic too if you want somewhere special to stay and eat.

My favourite restaurant in the area by a mile, but I don’t get in as often as I’d like. Certainly isn’t overpriced, but I like to order as much as I can, as the food and wine are amazing. We were in a few weeks...ago and the food was incredible. We had the steak and wine pairing with a starter and dessert. I’d recommend this above any other restaurant around based on the food alone, but I couldn’t speak highly enough of the owners and staff either. We were looked after by Rob and Evie and they couldn’t do enough and were really friendly and chatty. Definitely makes a difference having staff like this. I can’t think of a single criticism of this place. The decor is beautiful and right on the quay. Great location. Will make more of an effort to get in more often. Thanks for a lovely evening 🙏More

Fabulous place to stay. Very warm welcome. Stunning room. Super-comfortable bed. Great night’s sleep. Easy access to quayside, city centre and railway station. Didn’t try the food on this occasion as was attending a family event. It looked amazing and I will definitely be back...to sample the restaurant.More
