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.

This is such a lovely gastro pub - we love the Elite chain. The location is lovely and our server, Yasmin, was so efficient, polite and delightful. Would highly recommend the shell on prawns and harissa humous with flatbread. Coralie was brilliant too 👍

Great pizzas as usual and service was impeccable. Sam was a great server and the atmosphere was relaxed and welcoming. Even though there were just pizzas available as the kitchen closes most afternoons that was all we went for it was worth it.

Our first visit to the Pig & Sty, though we have been to other pubs in the Elite family. It was busy but we were seated and served quickly. The food was good and our waitress, Yaz, was very attentive. Excellent service.

Absolutely cracking bar, dog friendly too. Moved to the area recently and was looking up restaurants that were close to home that allowed dogs. I’ve been back 3 times now, lunch and dinner. Even treated Barney to the doggy menu one evening and he loved...it! Jordan was our master at hand on the bar both evenings, really friendly guy and made our meal an enjoyable experience by keeping us topped up!More

This is the first time of visiting the Elite pub…The Pig & Sty. We’ve been to other Elite pubs and this particular one like others is top class. Very welcoming, and very informative on arrival and throughout with a special mention to Sophie and Eloise...both who waited and catered to our needs. The Elite pubs never fail in service, friendliness, value for money and great dining experience xMore
