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.

Just leaving a review for a recent wake I organized for my late father. We took the medium package at 10.99 a head for 50 people with coffee at £1 a head for unlimited drinks. When we turned up the buffet was out ready for...the party to turn up. To be fair it looked Good well presented but considering the hill was close to £560 pounds the buffet was poor for quality and quantity on display. The deserts had a jam tart cut into 4/6 pieces overall I though was poor as did most of the guests. The manager came to me and asked if everything was OK so said was OK in which he said just OK as was a wake for my late father it wast worth speaking my mind as felt wasn't appropriate. My late father would have turned in his grave at the buffet on show for his family at this time I know it's a chain pub but i was expecting a little more if I'm honest. I do like to pick up positive points aswell and I have to say all the staff were really good and James was really helpful and a credit to the premises.More

Delicious Sunday Roast. Lovely menu with a choice of 1, 2 or 3 courses. Thoroughly enjoyed this, lots of vegetables, plenty of meat, mashed potato and gravy. The portion sizes were generous and every person cleaned their plates. Really good price for the meal, the...staff were friendly and really looked after us. Highly recommended xMore

Working away from home it’s hard to find a decent pub, this is by far one of the best pubs I’ve been in. The food is great, the beer is great and the prices are just as good. Mark and his team are happy to...help with anything, just really good people. I would recommend this pub to anyoneMore

This was absolutely appalling! I booked a table on the morning for Sunday Lunch. Arrived and and was told there was no food left but they could do us a hot beef sandwich or we could go somewhere else. We accepted the sandwich to then...be told there was no beef. Accepted the pork sandwich to then watch as a member of staff had their family come in, sit at another table, be served Sunday lunch with extra helpings of Yorkshire puddings and meat so much so they packaged up what they had left to take home. We weren’t offered a dessert so paid our bill and left!More

Famous steak baguette....3 strips of tough quick fry steak for £13.95. Complained immediately, didn't eat any, took said "steak" home for dog. Owner gave 20% off so a bargain at £11.95 for 3 strips of tough steak for the dog. 2nd time we've eaten here...since New management, 1st time Sunday lunch, which was tasty but barely warm. Shame such an iconic pub doesn't take customer complaints seriously and rectify. I wouldn't recommend.More

Fantastic place! Met up with some friends here for a catch-up, was a great night! The staff are amazing & friendly, the food is delicious and very reasonably priced, with hefty portion sizes! The live music on a Saturday is great, sets the atmosphere, gives...smaller musicians a chance too! Great place, would recommend popping in if you’re in the area like us.More

Popped in twice since new owner took over . 1st just for drinks and then went back for food . Landlord is a great bloke very welcoming and will do what he can for you . On 2nd visit we got a fillet steak and...a parmo . Being a smoggie im fussy with the parmo but i can say its by far the best in sunderland! The fillet was better than what we have had at miller and carter . My Mrs is hard to please with food being a chef but she loved it ! Quality food and great service combined with good value!! Looking forward to our next visit.More
