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.

A sunny afternoon and a chance to eat in the garden. Ordered by app. A bit of a mix up over order but staff were pleasant enough and apologized. Fairly limited menu but what we had was well cooked and presented. Service was good and the two meals for £13.00 offered very good value. Down side was clientele in the garden. Children left to run around without suppervision and some very Loud Adults. (More reminiscent of closing time on a friday night) Not conjusive to a quiet meal. Offputting to the point we are unlikely to return. Sorry.

Despite living nearby for over 30yrs this was our first visit. Wanted to have lunch out somewhere that allowed dogs inside - like we do when away on holiday. We where given a lovely welcome, the food was fantastic. We will certainly be going back.

Staff charming. Very clean pub but unfortunately the chef needs training. The Chicken was like either. Seemed to be rebooked not fresh. The flavourings had been poured on instead of brushed. Not an enjoyable meal.

I waited to get served at the bar and the bar staff were serving there locals before me, although I was standing there for ages. Also the tables and bar is always sticky and the toilets smell.

We ate at the Jolly Friar on a Saturday lunchtime. Staff were very nice and attentive, but the food was very subpar and we won't be going back. You'd be better off going to Wetherspoons.

The food is lovely! I have come here on several occasions on a work lunch break and the food comes out quick, fresh and reasonably priced. Big green area outside so the children can play.

From what this pub was just over a year ago, to what it is now is short of remarkable. The pub now has live music, live sport inc all the premier games, amazing food menu including Sunday Roasts & Midweek deals, new TVs, huge projector screens for the main events and family fun days with bouncy castles and BBQs . What more do you want from a family run pub 10/10. Staff have always been 10/10 too.
