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.

Once again the whole event was handled with impeccable professionalism. The quality of the food and the standard of the service made it an evening to enjoy. Not our first visit and definitely not our last. Well done Vicki and team,,

Once again Vicki and her team served our family of ten with an exceptional lunch. It was encouraging to see the restaurant full and buzzing. The food was absolutely delicious and Vicki's team were extremely pleasant and courteous as always.

We were fortunate to have a table for this sold out celebration. We had a fabulous banquet presented in three waves plus dessert, jasmine tea and a wee limoncello - before all that was a lovely, refreshing lychee martini. We enjoyed a fantastic arrray of...sharing dishes: crispy seabass, spare ribs, smoked bean curd & tofu ; then duck pancakes; then chicken & cashew, slow braised beef, sweet & sour courgette, greens & basmati rice. Pause for a while, then coconut rice pud with chiili pineapple. Wow - a fantastic selection of flavours and textures. Another great night from Daniel in the kitchen, the team looking after us and, of course, Vicki & David.More

Such helpful and accommodating staff and a simply delicious meal too. Two of us are coeliac and that was not at all an issue. In fact, the GF bread we had was some of the best I’ve ever had. My gluten eating husband was even...a bit jealous! Would highly recommend 😊More

This was our first visit to this restaurant. It was recommended by friends as somewhere worth a visit and so we met them there for a meal. The food was excellent - it’s a short menu but between the 4 of us we had a...variety of meals and everything was excellent. They clearly use local high quality ingredients and it was all really well prepared and good healthy portions. I had the pate and it was truly excellent and the side salad of pea shoots was exceptional. I am not a real ‘foodie’ as such but this was a real treat. The duck was very good and others had the steak and fish and we were all impressed. We had a very good night and enjoyed the rustic location and good service with a bit of personality as the staff engaged. I had read the reviews before going and would agree the road is bit bumpy on the way in - but it is a rural location and you’ll want to stick to the suggested 10mph. It was a winter’s night so can’t comment really on the location or views once you get to the restaurant but the food is excellent and we’ll find that out when we visit again in a different season or for lunch. The food here is worth the trip and we will be back.More

Absolutely excellent food and service, very attentive staff and while a wee wait for food which was to be expected everything was excellent as were the prices. If had to pick a tiny fault though, would have been helpful to have the ability to get...a large pepper twister for our steak even though lovely ground salt and pepper was already on the table. The lovely lady who came round and chatted to all tables at the end of he evening was a nice caring touch and both new and repeat diners were greeted warmlyMore

Including tortillas with extensive accompaniments, chicken wings, pulled pork to the vegetarian cauliflower wings and pulled jackfruit everyone was catered for. This continued...with the delicious mains with the twice cooked fish a revaluation in the best way! Churros to finish were squeezed in at the end of the night.

Visited with friends and had looked forward to the visit for a few weeks This place comes with warnings: Your risking the suspension on your car driving in. Potholes and un-made road. Food is not as described. Menu great, reality disappointing. Starter: Pate -Came with...3 slices of brioche, small amount of salad leaves and no Piccalilli as described. I asked about it and was told there was none. Hence bland! Main: Roast beef - very fatty, Veg either underdone or overdone. Roast Potatoes unable to cut with fork, Yorkshire Pudding very stodgy. No Jus but suspect instant gravy. Desert: Eton Mess - strangely included raspberries.More
