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.

This was recommended and didn’t disappoint. Turkish/Mediterranean menu. The staff were very friendly and contributed to a very relaxing lunch. Chic interior. We were walking so I’m not so sure about parking but it’s well worth the effort.

Haven’t been in the area for a while so we thought we have a Lara grill. It has always been lively but this was awful. I had vegetarian moussaka and when it turned up I was so disappointed. It came in a small plastic tub....Was swimming in oil and was luke warm. They could have at least used a foil one yo try and keep heat in. I have to say it was the worst one I ever had. This was £14.95. The rest of the order was just ok. If only I had seen the comments before orderingMore

I’ve visited probably around 10-15 times over the years and always like this restaurant. I actually travel over 30 minutes to go there but today’s experience was something else. It’s a bank holiday and didn’t recognise any of the staff so wonder if they’re new...or maybe temporary staff or something… but honestly they were awful. Our waitress was an Asian female aged around 19 years old. She poured a bottle of Coke into the glass and it overspilled and went all over the table. The food took forever… but the place was empty! The waitress went into the kitchen at one point and I saw the men cooking the food start shouting at her. It seems they were as unimpressed with her as I was. She was so inattentive and clearly didn’t care very much about the job. I’ve decided this is going to be my last visit. From reading some of the recent reviews, it seems that it’s not just me that had noticed the gradual reduction in service. Time to try somewhere new… goodbye Lara Grill.More

Although I've never had a bad experience before, new years day 2024 i was dissapointed at the lack of attention by your staff. I sat down for dinner and asked for a take away at the same time. The waitress said not to order it...yet so i waited a little bit before i ended my meal to order the away. I waited over 40 minutes and was ready to leave. The staff kept saying 5 minutes. At the end no one seemed bothered and made us wait. I asked for the manager and the waitress didnt call any over. I got so fed up I asked for a refund. The restaurant was empty and I can't understand why the staff couldn't manage this. Sad to see this place fall apart so badly.More

Lara Grill is my go-to restaurant. I take everyone who come to visit me and they are so happy everytime. However, last time I felt I was rushed we ordered 2 bottles of wine starters, mains, dessert, and teas, before we stood up to leave...the place our glasses were taken away .. a waiter tried to take away a wine bottle with some wine in it .. my guests asked me ( do they want us to leave? ) Appart from that, the food was amazing as usual.More
