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.

Had a lovely meal here with three other friends on Saturday evening. It's been a few years since I've been here as friends of mine live about 10 minutes walk from here. The quality of food and service is as good as ever, we all...enjoyed it very much.More

It still surprises me, after happening so many times, that we visit somewhere based on very positive reviews, to end up having a bad experience. We started visiting independent pubs after so many poor 'everything-deep-fried' experiences from the likes of Hungry Horse and Marstons pubs....Our first visit here was several months ago and we really enjoyed what we ordered from the specials menu. Last night was our second visit and the specials sounded quite underwhelming so we ordered from the main menu, with a few extra starters in case the main was rubbish (as is our custom, the experience we're used to). Food arrived very quickly and we gave each other the 'uh-oh - it's all deep fried' look. We were right. And the oil they used clearly needed changing. Anything with a crust/coating was mostly crust, especially the calamari, and was either dry inside (e.g. goujons) or too greasy. The garlic bread included in the 'sharing' combo hadn't even been cut (these little things count...). Everything came with 'crispy' salad so we had salad everywhere - but the leaves weren't very fresh, some were quite bitter and a lot of it was wilted or turned a funny colour - and the salads were 80% leaves, so not great. We don't like to waste food (and I can eat a lot) but we just had to leave most of the greasy chips, crusts and salad leaves. Puddings were nice but not nice enough to render the overall experience as good. The table behind us also had a poor experience and were there less than half an hour. As for atmosphere, a lady on the table next to us kept staring and frowning at us, I'm not sure what the issue was as we were quiet, unlike the group a few tables away. Our food waitress was polite enough but the young lady who took our drinks order didn't even have a non-alcoholic drinks menu, and couldn't list what soft drinks suitable for kids, which I thought was quite strange, considering there were clearly children present. Funnily enough, the dessert menu had hot drinks listed on the back but we didn't get that until after our mains. Overall, we felt like we were back in a local Hungry Horse where the regulars look at you funny. Except we spent twice as much. Which is a shame...More

There was lots of us having a family meal and whilst everyone else enjoyed their food mine wasn't so good. I ordered the curry and it was like cooked chicken from a packet was put into a cheap jar of curry sauce. It just didn't...feel or taste right. Desserts were all over the place too with them saying they had run out then miraculously finding them. Would I go back....? Yes but would avoid the curry as the people there were quite friendly and I've eaten in far worse places.More

This is a lovely family run pub. It was our first visit and arrived there without booking, it was a little busy when we arrived, the landlady Lorna warmly welcomed us to a table and the service was excellent. The food Lorna recommended from their...special day menu was amazingly delicious and big portions. I will recommend the lamb hotpot and this lovely pub to anyone 👍🏾More
