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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

As always the staff and the food were excellent. What more could you ask for? This is a really great pub, with friendly staff who make you and your dog welcome the moment you arrive. I've eaten here many times, sometimes as a couple, and...sometimes as part of a larger group... the food is always delicious and the staff are always accommodating. They offer a good choice for vegetarians too...not just the usual veggie burgers! Yesterday the plant based meatballs were a winner! If you have the dog with you then this is the perfect place for lunch after a walk around Dinton Pastures, which is just across the road. We'll be back...More

I went to this pub for the first time in a while. I got there on friday evening and met 5 friends about 9. 30. Apart from other couple. I asked for a Double Jamiesons and paid £8.50. I have paid less than that in...pubs in London. I made a comment about this in a previous post and stated i thought it was overpriced and that the pub was lacking in atmosphere. In response told me I had got the wrong pub and i should take the post down because either way it was detrimental to business. I have lived in Winnersh for many years and know where the pub is,its on the other side of the road from Dinton Pastures in the Civil parish of Hurst. So I hadn't got the wrong pub and while the management (Shane)may not like my its pretty poor customer service to patronise your customers, by implying they don't know where they are and try to persuade them to delete a review because you don't like what you hear.More

We also had great food (the scotch egg in particular...was a winner with the Spaniards), and fantastic service. Thanks so much Darryl for going the extra mile. We all had a wonderful time.More
