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.

Absolutely amazing cooked breakfast , thick sausages thick bacon small hash browns tomatoes mushrooms runny egg black pudding and a thick slice of sourdough toast . Flat white coffee . Stunning fresh food . My pregnant daughter asked for things to be substituted as she...can’t stomach certain foods nothing was too much trouble waitresses and waiter accommodated without a fuss . This is friendly cozy little place and would highly recommend anyone to go and try it not just for breakfast they obviously do other meals plus they have a new pizza oven . Everything is freshly made .. can’t wait to come back thank you for a very enjoyable timeMore

My bestie treated me to breakfast so it may appear to be somewhat disingenuous to comment but will not return! Poor baguette a razor thin slice of smoked salmon, no apparent cottage cheese but a cucumber mayonnaise salsa ? Awful warm coffee, sticky table -...was going to speak with the owner but he had mysteriously vanished! Perhaps he knew?More

Popped along Saturday afternoon for a coffee and cake with a friend, and wow! What a beautiful little place, you can honestly blink and miss the entrance as it's so small, but wow what a shock when you go in! It's an absolute gem of...a place. We opted to have a slice of sponge cake each and coffee - the cake was absolutely gorgeous. The coffee was so fresh tasting too. We browsed the menu, but as we'd already eaten we didn't take up the offers of food. But from what we saw coming from the kitchen and what was advertised on the menu, we'll definitely be back for some dinner! The staff all seemed to be extremely friendly and helpful too, didn't have too much of a conversation with them but the young girls who served us were friendly and polite enough.More

Absolutely gobsmacked over the attitude of the owner after I complained about the awful meal I received. All they want is your money & profit! If you enjoy getting ripped off then this place is for you. Had to go to bank to get dispute...opened to get money back. Idiots.More

Loved it. We were staying locally and recommended the weekend pizza night. It didn't disappoint! We didn't have a reservation and they were fully booked (6pm Saturday night) but were offered a table outside on the deck. Considering the stunning weather we've had this summer,...we were more than happy to be outside amid the sculptures and frescos. Staff were incredibly obliging and friendly and we felt very well taken care of. We had arancini balls and a couple of pizzas (one each) and they were excellent. Despite The Snug being a cosy little place tucked out of the way in a small village, the pizzas (from their impressive pizza oven) were up there with the best I've had. The pizza toppings on point and, most importantly, the bases were super tasty and delightfully chewy. Food and staff: 10/10. Heartily recommended and ready to drop in again soon.More

The Snug has it all, fab breakfast, lunches, wood fired Pizzas on a Friday and Saturday evening and the best Sunday lunch …. EVER. I love a home cooked Sunday lunch, The Snug is the only place, apart from my home, where I can honestly...say I would eat every week. Sandro obviously buys the best quality meat and it shows, it’s delicious. The pork with crispy crackling is to die for. Service is excellent and the homemade Tiramisu according to my husband is the best.More

Delicious food and great service, this restaurant is a little gem and great value for the quality of food you get. I will definitely go back. I had welsh lamb, and by the time I finished eating they had sold out, I love fresh locally...sourced and well cooked produce! The tempura prawn and squid snd vegetable starter was also delightful! Shame I could not fit in dessert.More

Met with close friends on Friday, 27th January 2023 at The Snug for lunch. On entering, you could immediately feel the warm welcoming atmosphere and all present within enjoying their experience. The choice of food was wide and varied and above all, of excellent quality....The service throughout was second to none and both the owners and staff couldn't have done any more to ensure that our visit was a most satisfactory one.

I took a friend to the snug for Sunday lunch. We chose the lamb which was cooked to perfection. We always have a lovely selection of vegetables which makes it even better. With so many restaurants increasing the pricing it was nice to see that...with all the rising costs Lunch had only gone up £1. It was great value for money. I have been eating there for years and I’m still impressed at the quality and service.More
