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.

Enjoyed a lovely meal here which was close to our hotel. Great food and excellent service. Lasagne and italian soup to start followed by pizzas. A very nice touch was the complimentary italian bread. Will definately return. A shame it isnt near where we live.

Been told by my parents about this restaurant as a gluten free we give them a try. Good selection for any person with this unfortunately allergy and a big surprise was to have a dessert gf. Thanks to all members of staff.

I was staying at The Grand, but fancied a slightly more cosmopolitan meal so strolled here. Friendly service, great food and a bottle of house red at £14.95 went down very well.

Hi Kerrypooz, I notice that you have the same photograph as oberonsgh who also had a different experience to a lot of other people at this restaurant. I love the photograph as it happens. My question is that I am somewhat taken aback by the negative comments about this establishment as we had a great experience, I am wondering if there has been a deterioration since then or if there were circumstances that were different at the time for example a change of management or building works? I do rely on genuine, honest feedback from my fellow travelers to inform my decisions about where I go so its important to me to understand why there are such greatly opposing views, in other words, it does not make sense?. I do hope you will be able to help me out with possible explanations about why you may have experienced such a negative experience compared to the one that I and other travelers have had. Many thanks to you for taking the time to add such a comprehensive review, we do need to hear everyone's views.
