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.

This is the second time in 3 months I have been to the bottomless brunch at Clayton’s and will be going back again soon! It’s so much fun and for a Saturday afternoon. The staff are fantastic and the food is great. Definitely recommend!

The setting upstairs is really lovely but unfortunately it lacked atmosphere as there was only my husband and I and another couple seated but that is by no means any fault of the restaurant. We had a totally gorgeous dinner.. fish of the day and...the pork. The best part of our evening was being privileged to have Martin taking care of us… he actually made our evening, what a lovely young man 👍More

If you have never been here then WHY NOT??!! Such a wonderful restaurant hidden upstairs where staff and food are the best in town. Martin deserves a special mention as his attention to detail was second to none. We only mentioned it was our anniversary...so that we could get a quiet table but Martin was so kind and attentive and ensured our evening was truly memorable. The food is to die for and the menu has something for everyone. 10/10 service thank you.More
