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.

Made an order for drinks, I asked for a mug of hot water and was told no, i enquired why and was told they had no facilities to boil water. Ordered Sunday roast which consistered of undercooked frozen vegtables, I asked for boiled potatoes and...was told they had none, gravy like tap water. Roast Turkey for myself and the roast beef for my spouse was overheated, dry and crispy around the edges. The puddings came, had a waffle with One Strawberry on top, I could not understand why there were not more people in there but after receiving the meal I could understand why. Napkins with cutlery inside were held together with a White sticky label. The only thing we could rate about the visit was the young waitress who served us was outstanding.More

Possibly the worst pub meal that we have ever had. The beer was flat and the food was in places inedible. A child’s meal for £7 consisted of a sausage, six chips and a pot of peas. Loaded fries were definitely not loaded and were...in fact uncooked in places. When concerns were raised the landlady was incredibly rude and refused to accept our concerns. I can wholeheartedly say we will never return.More

We stopped here for lunch randomly one day on our holiday, and had the best time! The landlady was fantastic and couldnt have done more, she was friendly, happy to open up the baby changing room (which was clean, light, and spacious) and didnt mind...when the children made a bit of a mess. Fab having some jenga available for the 3 year old to play with too. Fantastic feel to the place, and the food was incredibleMore

Visited the on-site Fish and Chip takeaway to purchase a meal for the family as we live right opposite. Sadly never got to try the food as they only sell “meals”. I wanted to purchase 4 x Savaloys, 1 s Pie, 1 x Burger and...2 x Chips, to share between the family. They will only sell items as meals, 1 savaloy and chips, 1 pie and chips, etc. This is a first for me, a takeaway not selling items individually. They lost a customer and living 30 seconds away, one that would have returned regularly. Thankfully Just Eat and Belton Fish Chips and Kebab saved the day and delivered exactly what I required - exactly the Customer Service that any reasonable person would expect.More

Staff were friendly, beer was fine as expected. Food not great at all, had sticky beef strips was about 3 bits of beef in the dish, the rest was full of peppers and rice. Tasted okay but obviously not what you expect when the title...says beef. Was pretty close to being a vegetarian meal. Wouldn't go back for food again.More

Unfortunately we couldn’t give a rating as we never got to try the food . This pub is advertised as doggy friendly it most certainly isn’t . We turned up Monday evening after Googling doggy friendly pubs where it boasts a picture of a dog...in the bar . It was chucking it down with rain so eating outside wasn’t an option . I’m doubtful they had that many customers anyway looking at the car park and we’ve got two elderly Jack Russell dogs . You’d have thought they could have made an exception on this occasion and let us maybe sit in the bar with them . We were turned away completely. I said to the girl you’re advertised as doggy friendly , she just didn’t want to know . I’d say business must be booming if you can turn custom away on a miserable Monday evening . They should stop advertising themselves as dog friendly , it wasted our time traveling to it !More
