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.

Ate here again on Saturday night. Really can not fault this warm relaxing friendly place. Staff are very helpful as always and the food is amazing. For all you gluten free people out there the choice we have is probably one of the best I’ve...been to. And I go out a lot. One other thing is it actual states on the menu what is gf and what they can do gf so it saves all that awful questioning. Thank you guys.More

Popped in on Fri night whilst in Cumbria for night. Food was excellent and we both thoroughly enjoyed itI had a Greek sausage starter and pie for mains; my wife had pork souvlaki for mains and mushroom bruscetta for starter. Only two things Id comment...on negatively was decor. I wlaked into an old fashioned country pub expecting exactly that and was met with an interior that reminded me of me old univ refectory from the dim n distant past Whilst the service was very good (quick and friendly), it gets on my nerves to be told by the server how wonderful my food looks. I can decide that meself. Other than those two very personal and nit-picky moans, we had a fab meal and would thoroughly recommendMore

Went for Sunday dinner.very friendly atmosphere, quick and attentive staff and a superb quality of food. Would highly recommend this place to anyone. Although there was a large birthday party in attendance you could still speak comfortably together. Full marks for a job well done

We hadn’t been here for a while as the previous owners could be a little unfriendly. So pleased that we gave it another go. The food was delicious and the prices are reasonable. Food was well cooked and the staff were all friendly. Definitely will...be back. So pleased to have somewhere like this in the area. The new owners deserve to be successful.More

Amazing food and such a fantastic atmosphere, love that we could still visit on a Saturday evening with our puppy as they have separate dining areas that are pet friendly - all the staff were so welcoming and friendly. Lots of different dishes on offer...to suit everyone’s taste, I went for the lamb curry and it was so tender. The value for money is great considering the portion sizes and how fresh everything is! There is such a wonderful buzz about the place since the new owners took over earlier this month. Can’t wait to return!More

Wow… what can I say, the most beautiful family meal! The new owner has done a fantastic job and compliments to the chef for one of the best meals we’ve had! All home made… to start with we had chicken liver pate and cheese soufflés...(out of this world!) followed by steak pie, the tastiest chicken parmo and chicken burger, all amazing. Kids had mozza sticks, chicken goujons and chocolate brownies… delicious! All in all fantastic service, lovely warm ambience and a great evening all round, thank you!More
