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.

Our first visit to Vigour, the service was great, Charlotte was very welcoming & helpful , good quality food which tasted delicious, and the ambience very relaxed. We were surprised to be given a 10% discount for Valentine's Day when most establishments increase their prices...for this occasion! We will definitely return and also recommend Vigour to family & friends.More

Great Sunday lunch ! Looking for somewhere new to take the family of 5 for lunch I read a couple of reviews from local newspapers and had to try it out ! Staff where lovely, attentive taking drinks orders, took around 30mins for meal to...arrive which during the meal staff asked if everything was ok 👍 so big tick for staff! Sunday lunch we booked as were informed it does sell out we all had the beef, I’m always wary of beef but this was delicious! It was cut thinly, melted in the mouth, cabbage was so tasty loved the glazed carrots and greens ! 3 empty plates ! They were able to accommodate my child’s request for sausage mash n beans he ate this all himself.. another hit ! Hubby had a burger and said it was great! Not familiar with the area but easy to park outside on double yellows for free on a Sunday. Works out around £15 per head. What a little gem 💎 thanks team vigour for a lovely Sunday lunch see you again !More

Was looking forward to a nice Saturday lunch here, but it was just too cold - there were other diners eating with their coats on. We moved away from the door, but it made little difference as there was no heating. It not cheap here,...but the food is lovely, so it’s worth it, but I draw the line at eating with my coat - so we left. I hope you improve this situation, or I’ll not come back until summer!More

Visited yesterday evening as had heard alot of good reviews . The food was excellent and cooked in an open kitchen with lots of choice on the menu . Nice staff and good service. It says ‘Come as you Are ‘ in the window and...that’s what people seem to do . It’s very casual and laid back , no need to dress up . Will definitely return and recommend to othersMore

We came here for lunch and had some small plates to share. The food was really good I recommend the Parmesan and chorizo croquets, the beef short rib tacos and the halloumi bites as all 3 plates were amazing. We had 8 plates in total...and 2 drinks each and the bill came to £56 which I think is reasonably priced for the amount of food that you get. The staff were really friendly as well.More

Lovely little restaurant, definitely worth the visit. When you have kids who go to a new restaurant, which isn't a chain and come out saying they would go back, then you know it's nice.
