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.

Carol, sounds like you all had an awesome time! Winning the quiz must have been so satisfying, and enjoying delicious chips while doing so sounds like the perfect combination. It's always a bonus when the staff are friendly too. Even if the quiz was tough, it sounds like you made the most of it and had a blast overall! Hope to see you at next months!

Faultless. Customer service was 5 star and food delicious. Extensive food and drink menu. Popped in for lunch on the off chance a table was available. Made to feel welcome, attentive staff without being intrusive. Would love to visit again if ever in the area.

This is my third visit to the Knot Inn and 2nd supper. The food and service could not be faulted. I now know what Hogget is. Had to Google that and the WiFi works great. Just the perfect warm comfort food beautifully presented and served on a cold wet evening. Good selection of beers and the lady behind the bar kindly let my overseas visitor taste a couple of ciders to make sure he chose the right one. Definitely now on my list for visiting clients.

This is my favourite pub. The food is always freshly cooked and delicious. The service is always excellent and the feel of the place is cozy and welcoming. There is a restaurant or you can eat in the bar where there is a cozy log fire.

This pub popped up on my news feed a couple of weeks ago so we gave it a try. Absolutely excellent food, we had the beef & reef sharing board followed by the sticky toffee pudding. All I can say is fantastic tasty food and plenty of it along with top service.
