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.

We travelled from Nottingham to enjoy the Lobster Festival tonight and goodness, it was so worth all the time and effort. Absolutely superb meal and a lovely chef who was prepared to go to that extra little effort for us (Garlic on the fillet steak)...- impossible to fault it. Without exception, friendly supportive staff. We were so very impressed and staggered into the Premier Inn for our night's stay, so full that we couldn't even manage a coffee. So many thanks to all the staff who were there tonight - including those all important ones working behind the scenes. We will be back!!More

This week we were in Chesterfield on business for the first time. Far from home and looking for somewhere nice to eat we came across this charming pub quite by chance. We had intended to eat somewhere different each night, but after the first experience...we returned here every night for four nights. The food here was amazing, you can get a beautiful roast dinner on a Sunday and a lamb roast dinner every night of the week. With chef's specials available every night it was sometimes difficult to choose, but the owner was on hand to advise us with his enthusiastic descriptions of every dish. Great wine and ales and we dined out like royalty with roast dinners, chicken masala pie, chicken skewers, sea bass, fish and chips, pasta and burgers. There was so much more I'd have liked to try, but we only had four nights. Every night the chef's delivered the food to our table with well deserved pride and the bar staff could not do enough for us, I've never felt so welcome in a pub and we even got a few hugs from the locals as we bid them farewell on our last night. If you are ever in need of a beautifully cooked, wonderfully presented and fairly priced meal in Chesterfield then please don't waste your time looking elsewhere.More

I’ve eaten here so many times before and it’s been lovely every time, service and food included. I also work in hospitality (front of house) and a couple of your staff members dine where I work and I have built a good rapport with them....As of tonight I requested for a Guinness and black but with plenty of blackcurrant and the bar tender pulled a face as if I’d asked for something bizzare. When my food came out he asked if there was anything else he could get us and I asked for some bbq sauce. Again, he pulled a face of confusion and it I find it quite rude. I understand what I eat and drink isn’t to his preference but he should be more discreet with how he feels rather than pulling faces like a 4 year old whose trying veg for the first time . Thanks 🙃More

We have been here 4 times for family birthdays and each time we have really enjoyed the food. The place has a really homely feel and the food is always delicious and is freshly made. Recently we went for my nans birthday and again everything...was really yummy and the staff welcoming and friendly. The only issue is sometimes spacing e.g 3 on one booth. If you are a family that requires a bit more space I’d be tempted to let them know in advance.More

Wonderful service and excellent food. Staff so attentive and chefs really care about the food. Husband recommends the fish and ships and I couldn't eat all of my beef baguette even though it was absolutely delicious.

Not a very pleasant experience all things considered. Very cold inside due to customers propping the doors open, very dark (phone torch needed to view the menus!) kitchen doors open for all to see the meals being microwaved - shame they didn’t leave ours in...for another couple of minutes as it was cold! Complained to the staff who didn’t offer any sympathy - probably as they were very understaffed. Ovoid!More

Lovely pub with absolutely fantastic food. Everything we order was delicious, from the burgers to the haggis to the lamb shank - and the scallop starters were incredible 👍 great choice of well keep beers, including a few high-end craft beers in the fridge, and...a great choice of spirits. We’ll definitely be returning 😃More

A traditional pub with a really tasty and reasonably-priced menu. Four of us had different lunch meals and all were spot on. The chef is a proper chef….not the usual foodservice stuff. Very knowledgeable staff and food comes from local sources. Beware the voodoo burger...with HOT chilli sauce! We had a table outside and could not have picked a better spot. Will return.More

Myself and my friend called for breakfast @ 12pm one Sunday and were very disappointed. It wasn't busy when we got there and yet had to wait an age before our food was served. Unfortunately it was stone cold when it arrived, which a full...English shouldn't be of course. Neither of us finished our meals and when i came to pay by card they tried several times before i was told there was something wrong with their internet. Fortunately i had the cash on me to settle up and leave, knowing full well i will not return because the price wasn't cheap and have a cooked meal served hot can't be too much to ask for.More

I'm pretty sure it's still cash only. My husband had to pop out to the nearby NatWest to pay for our meal.

No not really you can park around the corner. It’s a two or three minute walk. Sorry for late reply. Excellent food though.
