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.

The ambience is very up market and good service. Food was quite tasty however the mushrooms needed seasoning. What let it down was the disabled toilet it was well appointed. The door lock works differently to most disabled toilets and I was shocked when the...door I thought I had locked opened. This is a common occurrence apparently which could be sorted by giving a warning of how the lock works and having a sign showing it's engagedMore

We had out work Christmas party at Goodliffes last week and an excellent time was had by all. We had fully paid and pre-ordered 2 weeks prior to the event, which is too be expected at Christmas. Communication with Leanne was good and she replied...quickly, especially when 2 of our party were unable to attend due to illness a few days before. Their were 19 of us, our table was ready as soon as we arrived and there were already a number of other tables whose celebrations were in full swing. This provided a great atmosphere. The service was very good, especially considering the restaurant was full. All the staff were friendly, polite and efficient. The food was good and well presented. Not piping hot but warm. A few of the reviews have complained about overcooked vegetables but this wasn't our experience. I dislike 'soggy' brussels but the ones we had were cooked perfectly in my opinion. There were a number of vegetarians in our party and they commented that their meal was the best one they had had at a Christmas event. Also, the portion sizes were about right for a Christmas meal, big enough that you were able to enjoy all courses without feeling completely stuffed at the end. Saying that, the cheese plate, which I had, was huge and I ended up sharing this. There was a supplement for it, but even so, it was good value. We had a great night. So many thanks to all the Team at Goodliffes.More

A complete and utter disappointment. It takes some going to get EVERYTHING wrong but last night Goodliffes managed it! We pre-booked a table of six for the Xmas Menu as an Office Team night out/celebration. Paid a deposit and pre-ordered all our food (all three...courses). We were seated at a table that was out of sight of the bar and serving staff. A long wait for drinks order to be taken and then a long wait for our starters to arrive. I can only speak of my own experience but for me a prawn cocktail is more than 8 prawns on a 3 lettuce leaves covered in a tasteless pink sauce (which was described as "brandy marie rose" so I can only suppose my brandy was missed off here along with all the flavours!) and served with sliced RADISH! Really? Marie-Rose sauce is so easy to make, and this is what gives the prawns their flavour. Then after another wait, our main course arrived. A lifeless slice of rubbery stuffing, lukewarm turkey, overcooked parsnips and three roast potatoes - meals served we waited for our veg, and we waited, and we waited - by this time it was eat what you had whilst it was remotely warm. Twice we asked for the veg and after the third request it arrived in two small finger bowls with the words "here is some MORE veg"......more? We have not had any! Then the penny drops with the waitress and the apologies and the excuses start......as we sat and watched other tables tuck in to mountains of steaming hot veg, we had to make do with the smallest portion ever between 6 of us (3 of us had already finished our meal by the time this meagre portion of veg turned up). More apologies but it seems it was impossible to take anything off the bill - but they could offer us a round of free drinks! Dessert was supposed to be Eton Mess - the only thing they got right about that was that it was a mess! Would have been nice if the Manager had come over to apologise but sadly, he was too busy with the party of thirty-four who were getting all the attention. Whatever happened to customer service?More

Popped in for coffee and cake, and made to feel and inconvenience as not having a hot meal! Ordered 3 drinks and cakes for us and ice cream for daughter. These arrived (brownie very dry!) and 10 mins later still no drinks (the places really...wasn’t busy but more staff that you could count!). When went up to check were drinks were one was sat there going cold that they finally brought over and then forgot the other and finally brought it over. They seemed to not care less, too busy gossiping amongst themselves. Don’t waste your money here, go to Starbucks!More

Delightful restaurant, pleasant staff, good menu and delicious food. Early evening meal before the theatre so not in a rush which was just as well as it was hard to attract server attention, this was a little frustrating. A Thai curry with chicken and a...sweet potato risotto, cheesecake and an affogato along with drinks, all for a very reasonable price especially as the wine was at a discount at that time. Well done Goodliffes, we were impressed.More

fantastic home-made hash browns! Cosy, with friendly staff, lots of seating. Prepared to alter items to suit. Plenty of vegan, veg, gluten free options too. Nice out of the way spot within easy walking distance from car parks.

We have been here on two occasions for an early evening meal before seeing a show. Both times the food has been brilliant, served hot and delicious. Can't fault the service either; staff are friendly and helpful. Will definitely be returning.

We stumbled across this venue by chance and the location was beautiful. It is tucked away in Loughborough but the the staff are polite and friendly. Also there is a good choice of food. The only thing I will say is if you need the...toilet you need to go up some steep stairs. Overall it was a nice experience.More
