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.

Went here for a skittles night with work colleagues. We ordered a buffet, which was delicious! The sandwiches were proper thick bread and a good variety of meat and veggie. The staff were welcoming and the pub had a friendly and happy atmosphere. We had...a great night and will definitely return.More

We have just been for Sunday lunch, 3rd July 2022. We thought we'd booked by email but - BE AWARE - the email address on Tripadvisor is no longer valid. Plus: the barmaid found us a table in the corner of the pool room (they...were very busy). The food, when it came, was well-cooked and very tasty. There was a choice of beef, pork or turkey. The vegetables - cabbage, carrots, peas and cauliflower cheese - were well cooked and hot. Apple, and cranberry, sauces were brought automatically, to suit our choices of meat. When I paid, I was told that, if we go again, we could ask for a child's meal (as we don't eat a lot now we're older). Minus: we were told we would have to wait for 20 minutes before we were served, and it was over half an hour. The floor in the bar was sticky. The meal arrived already plated. (It may be a personal choice, but we would rather have the meat and potatoes on the plate, with vegetables and gravy served separately.) There was only a choice of roasts - no alternative menu. We had read, somewhere, that the pub had had a £95,000 refurbishment. If so, the pool room had not even been redecorated! The barmaid had no assistance, though she coped very well with serving drinks and meals. At the moment, they do not serve meals during the week, though they may try during the summer.More

Have just returned from a night out playing a great game of darts. Food was provided after the match. Initially it looked lovely it was fish bites, chips and peas. Couldn’t ask for a nicer after match noshup admit we’ve had worse! But the chips...were already salted. Two of my team were unable to eat as they have a dietary restriction of salt. I just don’t like added salt for personal taste. I asked politely if there were chips unsalted he replied no sorry. Having returned to my team to explain this we got into a discussion about how most eating establishments wouldn’t do this and allow the customer to make that option if they wanted to. Returning to explain about his cooking and that’s what he does I asked him if he was aware that some people are not allowed to have extra salt added to their meal (respect that some amount of salt is used in the cooking process) as it could effect their health his reply was no I didn’t know but it’s what I do. So I then asked does he display any information to the customer that they needed to be aware of anything extra that is added to the meal. He said no does that then mean I should tell you that there is butter on the peas!! I found him very rude and very defensive about his cooking. Basically we got it for nothing so what’s the issue was his attitude. I’m not normally one for making an issue about things but I feel that others should know ( because we didn’t!) to ask before they order not to add any extra salt if they don’t want it!More

Haven’t been in since before COVID. The revamp has made a noticeable improvement. Great cocktails, gins and beer. The landlords are friendly, helpful and interested. Worth checking out, jukebox and pool table. Dogs welcome

I booked the Princess Royal for a skittles night and a buffet. I have to say, we had so much fun and the buffet was excellent, everyone said it was nice and plenty to eat too. The staff is so friendly and nothing was too...much trouble either and that in my book is a huge tick and always makes a difference for the whole experience. I will definitely be making arrangements for the next reunion. They had a band playing in the bar area... No idea who he was, but we could hear him in the skittle alley and he was very good too! Thank you to all the staff for all your hard work! Kind Regards Sheila JordanMore

We popped in here after the cricket. The staff and locals were welcoming and chatty. Good range of beers available. We did not try any food. It appeared to be very good value in comparison to other town centre pubs.
