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.

Don't be put off by the outside of the pub as it looks sad and tired. It's lovely inside and the staff are friendly and polite. We had Sunday lunch. The food was excellent with 6 different veggies to choose from. It was busy with...a good atmosphere even though we were at the early sitting of 12 o clock. Will definitely be going back.More

A fabulous meal with some family over from China - one who had never been in England before and wanted to try fish and chips. The staff were lovely and very accommodating- allowing us time for multiple translations and a lot of jollity. The food...was delicious, beautifully presented and the visting family were suitable impressed - as were we. Thank you to the Bricklayers Arms.More

Never judge a book by its cover, we booked here whilst staying in the area on a recommendation at the Holiday accommodation. When we pulled up we weren't really sure what to expect, it's on a busy road and looks a little tired, but we...had booked so out of the car we got . Wow I'm so glad we did, we were met with a warm welcome and the inside was beautifully decorated for Christmas. We were shown to a couple of tables to choose from. Drinks were bought to us quickly and menus, such a good choice. The food was absolutely to die for. The meat was so lean and well cooked. The waitress super attentive without being over the top. We ended up having 3 courses it was all so good. I cannot recommend this place enough and will certainly return when staying in the area again.More

Service very friendly, generous portions on all dishes. We both had creamy garlic mushrooms to start and they were delicious I could have drunk a gallon of the tasty sauce. My wife had a 3 cheese pasta bake with chips which was very tasty and...enormous. I had cod and chips which was beautifully cooked, hearty and delicious.

Staff were friendly. We were a large group for a meal. All meals were pre ordered over a week in advance. On arrival we were informed the mixed grill had gone up in price, when questioned we were told we had received the wrong menu,...but we had got it off the menu on line which we had been told to use, and still the price was still the same on line when checked, a small increase ok, but £11 is crazy. Some of the desserts that were preordered they didn't have, but weren't told until other desserts were ordered on the nightMore

Hopefully just a bad night at the Bricklayers. Been here 3 times now in past 18mth whilst staying locally on a midweek break with family. Both times before the meals were excellent and reasonable priced for good food however this week there seemed to be...limited menu available as asked for a couple of things but told they had run out. Son settled on a 10 oz steak but to to be honest 4oz of it was gristle! I had steak and ale pie but more like a starter portion. Wife's ok but nothing to write about. All in all a disappointing experience this time especially as prices ( I do understand current inflation situation) have gone up 20%+ from the website menu!! But the quality is well above 20% worse. Will be over there later on in the year so hopefully some positive reviews and apologies might sway us to try again.More

We visited on the Friday morning as we were leaving a near by site after holidaying. The breakfast buffet was absolutely fantastic. We were really stunned about the value versus quality. Absolutely fantastic meal. The service was attentive but not overpowering. Our 3 year old...son wasn’t hungry so we were not charged despite having taken items from the buffet for him. The hosts didn’t need to do that and it was incredibly kind of them. We will be revisiting every time we go on our holidays. What a perfect little place for breakfast. I can’t wait to have an afternoon meal here, too!More

A meet up with work colleagues for a midweek meal, so we chose to visit the bricklayers. From start to finish the staff were friendly and polite and nothing was to much trouble, we preordered our food so we did not have to wait to...long for it to arrive, and when it did we were all very pleased with the choices we had made, good sized portions, piping hot and very tasty.
