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 visited Venus on Saturday 30th March and had a great evening. On arrival we had drinks at the bar whilst we viewed the menu and ordered. Once the meals were ready the waiter came over to show us to the table. I had a...medium sirloin steak, and my husband had the mixed grill what was huge. All the food was perfectly cooked and presented, and the staff were friendly throughout. We didn’t have a desert as we were full from the mains. Overall had a great evening and will be visiting again.More

From the moment you walk through the door you know you will have a great evening. The staff welcome you warmly. We had drinks whilst we checked out the menu. We ordered our meals & were shown to our table. The wife had Baked brie...(never seen one so large) whilst I had the prawn & salmon cocktail. Mains were Lamb shank & rump steak. Followed by creme brulee and the wonderful cheese board which comes with a small carafe of port. Fantastic food, cooked extremely well and served by very helpful and friendly staff. We love The Venus it never disappoints.More

We went to Venus for my husbands birthday. He is a funny eater! Does not like fish, cheese, pate, mushrooms 😂 on reviewing the menu prior, for starter it would need to be soup but when we arrived, soup of the day was broccoli and...Stilton, oh dear! The staff were amazing, no problem at all the said and went off to make him tomato soup which he said is the best he has ever tasted. The whole meal was fantastic, thank you Venus xMore

We have been coming to the Venus for years, and never disappointed. Had Sunday Lunch this time and the food choice and quality was second to none, with friendly and helpful staff. Prices for the 3 courses was reasonable for the quantity and excellent service...provided. You really need to book in advance to ensure a table. Highly recommended.More

We visited the Venus 22/12/23 as a family of 8 for a pre Christmas get together. On arrival we were made to feel very welcome. We sat in the small bar and enjoyed a pre meal drink. We took our own balloons and scratch cards...to dress the table. The tables already had crackers and a Christmas tree and colour changing light on it. We had an oval table so we could chat to each other easily. We had the three course festive menu. A few from our family had the pate and Baked brie. I had the salmon prawn and crayfish cocktail. All were lovely presented and very good portions. There were part baked bread rolls and butter on the table which was topped up when asked. For mains again most of us had something different from the salmon to pork loin, traditional Turkey, chicken Diane and Mediterranean to the rump and sirloin steaks. On the table were chips and roast potatoes and you were served the veg. There was gravy and the ones that had pork or steak all said the Stilton or the peppercorn sauces were really lovely. There was a £2 supplement for the sauce. Deserts again we all chose something different from cheesecake, sponge pudding of the day, profiteroles and the cheese board and port. All really nice. We had no complaints at all. All the food was hot, more than plentiful and served very well. We were never rushed and were left to chat and enjoy the meal at our own pace as the table was ours for the evening. Thankyou Venus for a lovely dining experience.More
