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.

My husband and I visited for lunch on a Monday. I had the chicken breast which gave you the option of chips salad or vegetables. The chicken was moist and had lots of flavour I had salad with it which had lovely dressing. My husband...had the double cheeseburger which was absolutely gorgeous with home made burgers. The pub was busy with most of the tables full. This traditional pub has various events on in the evenings and we will definitely come back.More

What an amazing Sunday afternoon spent celebrating Mother’s Day with my daughters. The food was amazing , fresh ingredients, I had beef roast, it was perfectly done and my children had a chicken roast which was amazing too. Cozy and a homely feel! Micheal and...Julia and the team were so friendly and made the entire afternoon as special as it was meant to be. Will definitely be back!More

Warm welcoming, local pub with excellent food with great atmosphere. Well worth the visit. We celebrated Mother’s Day with a nice touch of complimentary Prosecco for mum.

Lovely old pub with a friendly welcome and great food. Stumbled on it while looking for somewhere to have lunch during a family day out, and we were not disappointed.

Came across this pub after not getting a table at a few other ones. We love a local and it suited us fine. Ordered drinks at the bar and sat in garden. Lovely chats with local people. We ordered 2 Roast Beef Dinners. How disappointed...we were. The beef was soooooo tough we could not eat it. Not helped by the fact it was sliced so thick. Also Roast beef but no English Mustard! Must say that the stuffing was excellent. We did tell the waitress that the Beef was awful, but she was young and didn't want to make an issue of it as not her fault. Lovely local pub, but would not recommend the roast beefMore

Took young daughter for dinner and had the best food. It was the start of their autumn menu and wasn't disappointed. Litlun had ham egg and chips and I was the 1st to try the free ranger which was an individual chicken and leek pie...along with skinny fries and long stem broccoli. It was one of the tastiest meals I've ever had! The gravy was also a hit. The owner Sam really looked after us 😊More

We love The Old House, was here for a family birthday on Friday and it was absolutely rammed! Nearly every table of 6 ate, mains and puddings!! It was crazy busy, which bought a great atmosphere also! Above all, the food did not suffer due...to numbers. Everything was on time, everything was as usual, delicious and absolutely piping hot!! One of the nicest places to eat these days, if anything standard gets better! They’ve clearly missed us all 😂 HIGHLY recommend!More
