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.

Great food in the evening. Both food and drinks are very well priced. Good pub in a good location. Nice outdoors area and traditional inside. Not glammed up like vast majority of Doncaster pubs. Nostalgic return and great to see very little has changed. Visited...twice and will return and reccomnend.More

Service poor, no offer of condiments, dilute orange tasted like dishwater, sandwiches were average, chips were cooked in old oil, salad was a lettuce leaf and 1 slice of tomato. Will not be returning. The waitress blanked us when we said thank you

My first Thai restaurant for years and we decided to have the buffet for 2 so we could experience the flavours of original Thai. The price slightly on the high side for food provided in my humble opinion. Service was quick, courteous and very efficient...always with a smile. Starters were good. Main course lovely- varied with duck, spicy mince etc along with their sticky rice which I'm not certain of lol- prefer unsticky! We went into the bar afterwards on what seemed like a Jam night- Thursday and it had a great ambience. The real ale choice was really good and reasonably priced for a change. Will re-visit on a Thurs to see if it is as good etc- nice oneMore

I’ve visited here before in November 2022 and it was so good I’ve come back on my recent visit to Doncaster. 2 nights in a row and I’ve always been delighted with my choices, very attentive staff with excellent food recommendations. Well worth a visit...if you like Thai food.More

Dissapointed at the Thai. Service was good, portions small for the price. The so called Weeping Tiger barbecued beef did not taste like it had been barbecued, very small dish of sauce not enough for the meat, the Salmon was ok,Massamon Curry had nice flavour....The Sticky Rice had no flavour or seasoning what so ever. Over all we think it was expensive for what you got. Although you could not fault the service. Won't rush back.More

My partner and I decided to go out for food last minute. We called up on the off chance that they had availability and got straight in. We were seated by a very friendly waiter called Matthew. The service was brilliant throughout. We ordered a...set menu for two and it was delicious! Also a brilliant heated beer garden. Will definitely be back!!More

The management here should be ashamed of the pressure they put their staff under. We booked two months ago for a group meal. Food excellent staff run ragged because management crammed a party of 20 in on top of everyone else and without more staff....We waited 90 minutes for food. No one cleared tables, asked for drinks or attended to us. We cleared our own plates and had to demand service with only a sorry from staff for whom we felt sorry. Get your act together.More

4 people, chosen the £30 per head set meal looked good, when it came looked a little short, enough in each dish for 2 and a half people, so 4 big blokes it didn't feed, I would probably say enough for 2 to 3 portions...in each, 2 small bowls of rice and 1 plate of pad thai noodles, poor, totally disappointedMore

Thai at the Salutation Pub Service was good except, everyone was addressed as 'darling' by the server who take the food orders. Did not have to wait long for our meals to arrive, around 10 minutes. The light tempura vegetables were served with mouthfuls of...frying oil. The crispy belly pork were in shreds and the accompanying sauce, instead of the honey soy sauce as stated on the menu, was hoi sin sauce with a dab of chilli powder. Unfortunately, the main courses were not the usual authentic Thai. The chicken Pad Thai was extremely sweet otherwise, very bland. The beef massaman was similar to a slow cooker pulled beef. Again, it was very sweet and can hardly taste the ingredients that normally made up a massaman. Although the receipt mentioned Thai rice, it was plain long grain rice served. All in all, a very disappointing meal experience.More

We travelled up to Doncaster from surrey to visit friends….it was our first time here. After being turned away in not a particularly friendly manner with our dog from another pub nearby we decided to try The Salutation ….Totally different attitude and so very welcoming!...We found a table and a bowl of water for our dog was brought over without asking….the staff were so friendly and made us feel so welcome. We stayed for a drinks and snacks which were perfect. Thanks for making us welcome ….next time we are in Doncaster we will be back!!More
