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.

I love this pub. A relaxed cosy atmosphere in winter in front of a log fire. Equally a relaxed vibe in the beer garden when the sun is out. Great food and great service. That’s why we keep going back.

Just returned from having Sunday lunch at The Greyhound and can honestly say it’s the best Sunday lunch I’ve tasted. Everything from the delicious pork to the gorgeous roasted vegetables, massive Yorkshire pudding and roast potatoes…… just delicious. Even though they were fully booked and...very busy, the service was first class.More

Just visited for the second disappointing time after moving to rostherne and hoping this would become our local. I have just sat and watched all three members of the bar team, ignore, then laugh at and mock a lovely couple who have travelled especially to...the area who clearly had learning differences. The couple attempted to make conversation with the team who stayed on their phones not making eye contact then laughing between themselves at the couple. Absolutely terrible behaviour and will be speaking to the general manager to express how sad this was to see first hand. Beyond disappointed and would not returnMore

We were travelling to visit family in Cheshire with our coeliac son (needs to follow a strict gluten free diet and to avoid cross contamination) so were feeling a bit nervous but after a few email exchanges with Emily she sent over the allergen menu...and we chatted through separate preparation areas and fryers etc. and felt comfortable to book. It certainly didn’t disappoint. Our son had an amazing GF fish and chips followed by the best warm chocolate brownie & raspberry ripple ice cream. There were lots of other options available too. It’s the most comfortable my son and I have felt in a pub setting and to top it off the real fires were burning and it was a perfect setting for Christmas. Thank you all so much xMore

I have eaten here a few times before and have also recommended it to others. Last week myself and three friends had a lovely meal, however, we were sat quite near to a log burner and during the evening a member of staff topped it...up causing quite a lot of smoke which they then wafted into the room. When we left our clothes and hair were completely covered in smoke fumes. We were able to wash our clothes and hair but our coats had to be cleaned. I emailed to say this, twice, but have not had any response or an apology which I think is appalling. I will not go back now until the summer!More

Family Sunday lunch, was spoiled by the fact that my roast beef was raw. I'm happy to have rare, but this was not cooked. I pointed this out to the waitress, who took my plate, saying she would sort it out for me but never...came back to offer me another meal??? My meal was refunded, but it would of been nice to be offered another meal as I left having not eaten. Not good as it was a family meal.More
