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.

Let me start by saying I love this restaurant. I use it when friends come from Scotland and also for couple and family nights out. We eat here at least every 6 weeks and spend at least £250. Today we visited and for the second...time in a month i had chicken in my dinner ....I'm vegetarian. We were also moved from our table before we were offered dessert or coffee. I spoke to the manager and would have expected this to be reflected in our bill ..but no! So disappointed. If the other 2 restaurants in the village sort out their vegetarian options, then I would never return to this restaurant!!!More

Was really upset and disappointed. I was there for a special occasion celebrating a new job and my aunty rang up to buy me a bottle of Prosecco, the waiter was rude and didn’t tell me who it was from or even ask what the...occasion was leaving me to guess who had given me the gift. On top of that when we asked for a few minutes to order, he spoke to us very rudely and said no I have got 200 people booked in tonight you must order as soon as you can!!! It didn’t make the night feel special and I have always loved the W, we had a lovely waitress on the other hand which helped us choose and gave us recommendations. He also made another rude comment on how we chose well from the menu and he expected us to have ordered something difficult🤷‍♀️ So disappointing and made me feel very looked down upon and picked on. The food was lovely on the other hand and I do appreciate that it isn’t all staff, we were just unlucky with the waiter we got :(More

Both the quality of the food and the service, in the restaurant and bar areas, were excellent. The pasta dishes and calzone were really tasty and good size portions. We will definitely return

The food here at W is absolutely fantastic. It’s a cut way above the rest of any Italian food we have had before. Recently we went to Rome, and we expected the food to be out of this world.. however I can honestly say the...food served in W was far better than anything we had over in Rome. Far better!!! The staff here are friendly, welcoming and very knowledgeable regarding wines etc. They are always happy to make suggestions if you’re struggling to decide what you want. My wife and my personal favourite is the Pollo Montanara. This dish is delicious, pan fried chicken breast in a creamy mushroom, garlic sauce. I’d recommend this as a main, with a side of chips and the greens. To start, I’d recommend the Gamberoni Diavola. We are lucky enough to have this place on our doorstep, but if we lived 30-40 miles away we would still be happy to travel knowing the quality served and provided. It’s always fantastic food, friendly service and an enjoyable evening or afternoon out. Can’t recommend the place enough. Thanks to everyone at W!!More

Booked the private hire room for my husbands 70th birthday, for 30 people. The room was a good size to accommodate 30, I was able to go in before the party and decorate the room. All the staff were very friendly, polite and helpful. The...quality of the food and service was excellent. Would definitely recommend for a family function. Thank you to all the staff.More

I have visited here previously and have found it to be a lovely place to eat. Unfortunately, this was not the same this evening. There was a private party happening in the function room with music blaring out which was the first issue. During the...evening someone was carried out and laid on the floor outside of the restaurant obviously too drunk to know what was going on! Then the people from the party were roaming around the bar area no shoes on and chatting to the waiters who should have been serving in the restaurant. This wouldn’t have been so bad had we not waited for ages for drinks and our bill at the end of the evening. The waitress removed our starter before we had finished and half cleared pots away while some of us were eating. It’s definitely not like it used to be which is a real shame because the food is lovely. It felt like we were in a bar/nightclub not a high end restaurant.More

Booked for a date night with my husband, been here before and always enjoyed it, but never felt as rushed as we did this time. We arrived early so we could sit and have a few drinks before the meal which was booked for 7:30pm....It was very busy so it was loud in the bar. About 7pm a member of staff came and said something to us which I didn’t catch due to the noise but she just grabbed our drinks and walked off towards the dining area. It was a little early but we sat down anyway. Within 10 minutes of sitting down we had been asked 4 times what we wanted to order, despite asking for more time. The starters came out quickly, and they were delicious. However, the mains were brought out within 5 minutes of finishing our starters. I’d barely had time to let the starter settle. Again, the food was delicious, I just couldn’t finish it. When the table was cleared we mentioned it to the waiter who said we could have asked for more time between courses. How can I do that when I don’t know that you’re going to bring it out so quickly?! We asked for the bill and was told it was already on the way. Good job we didn’t want dessert then! We left the restaurant at 8pm just 30 minutes after we had booked the table for. The table we supposedly had until 9:30pm. I have never felt so rushed out of a restaurant before, not even at Cosmo’s! I could forgive the early allocation of the table, but there were just 14 minutes between the starters being brought out and the mains being brought out from the photos I took. Just to add, the food was lovely. Just a shame about the service.More

Beautiful venue, great service and amazing food. We walked in off the street on a Friday afternoon and had an amazing experience. The menu was unusual but traditional, not the standard potato skins and garlic bread. The risotto was beautiful, the rice was cooked just...right and it was full of meat & mushrooms. The ravioli was special too and the cheese sauce was out of this world,More

Tried telephoning a few times. They never answer and if you leave a message they don’t call you back. I called in in person to try to book for Christmas Eve. This was about a month before. I was greeted by a man who looked...like the owner or manager. When I asked about Christmas Eve he laughed in my face, literally laughed at me! Then told me it had been booked up for months. The rudest man ever!!! I’d rather go hungry than spend a penny in there ever again!!!!!!More

A wonderful Wednesday evening meal with family. On arrival the place was buzzing with atmosphere. The tables were well spaced, not all crammed together like in some restaurants. The whole premises were lovely and clean. Our waiting staff were friendly and efficient the food was...some of the best I’ve ever had in my many visits to various Italian restaurants. Just when you thought things couldn’t get any better, a close up magician came to the table and entertained us for 15 minutes. He was amazing and had us all astounded by his tricks. I don’t know if this entertainment is a regular event or we were just lucky on this evening. He did however make lovely birthday celebration very memorable. Thanks W.More

Came for lunch with family and had some delicious pizza. The price was also reasonable for a pizza and a glass of wine each. I'd really recommend this place on the basis of good authentic food, friendly staff and a great atmosphere.
