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.

We won a voucher for the Droppinwell. We went with friends prior to a football match and loved it. Warm welcome and fast service . A wide range of food choices and generous portions. We will definitely return on a match day.

Depending on how many we’ve had to drink at the bottomless brunch we’ve got in Sheffield 😂😂 love this place. Food is always good as well.More

Visited the restaurant at Droppingwell with my wife, Rowena who must avoid certain foods for her own safety (some foods can cause anaphylactic attacks). When ordering our lunch, Nathen was most attentive to Rowena’s dietary needs and aware of the medical consequences should she ingest...nasty allergens. Nathen halted all else in the kitchen so my wife’s order would not be contaminated by allergens. We are so thankful for his attentiveness. My wife said it was the best (& safest) meal she had eaten in weeks. Thanks to everyone, and particularly Nathen!More

Beautiful pub with a great setting. Bar staff were polite and bubbly, but unfortunately we were left with a bitter taste. Whilst sat enjoying our drink we had the misfortune to overhear a male bar staff? Call a name to a young lady on the...bar. Lay about or lean a lot. Absolutely inappropriate and she was obviously upset over this. Might need to think about who is employed in future. Probably won’t be back as it was uncomfortable to hear what amounted to bullying. My partner had to bite her lip.More
