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.

OMG!! Atmosphere excellent, warm, friendly and amusing welcome by host. Quite literally the best ever platter (Deli Board). You will not get this high level of quality for the reasonable price from anywhere else. We will be back!!

Great food. The deli sharing platter was fantastic. Not normally a dessert person but had to sample after the main, and they proved just as delicious.

What did we love about Lubens? Everything! - friendly, welcoming, attentive staff - beautiful decor and great ambience - delicious food and generous portions.(we had the whitebait and specials burgers). The reviews are not wrong. This is a gem of a place. Clearly very popular...and you can see why. Highly recommend - suggest booking to avoid disappointment.More

A fantastic and beautifully decorated environment, with welcoming and efficient staff who were appropriately attentive . The menu is straightforward and there is also a specials board ; but do not think that a simple menu reflects simple food. In my experience simple menus reflect...more attention to detail with the food and this was clearly evident. As a couple we've always enjoyed having sharing boards and the sharing board we had on this occasion was the best I've ever experienced and was great value for money. The wine was excellent and everything was reasonably priced. Fantastic experience and a lovely place, to pop in for a coffee or a beer if you wish as the bar area at the back is also very welcoming. A unique and inspiring experience! Thank you!More

Lovely lunch had here today. Didn't wait long for food to arrive. We had starters and then shared the veg food board. Lots of things to choose from on the Veg Board and all very tasty. Thoroughly enjoyed lunch and would visit again.

We turned up without a booking on Mother’s Day and couldn’t have been more delighted with the friendly service and great food. A table was promptly found for us, water and treats for our dog and lots of useful local knowledge from lovely young staff....We chose Sunday lunch and were not disappointed. Keep up the good work! We will definitely be back soon.More
