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 booked for 11 of us to eat here last Sunday to celebrate my daughter's seventh birthday after being impressed with the food, and value for money, around two years ago. Not many pubs or restaurants offer a high quality of food for adults and...'plain' options for children (that's not an insult, that's what children want!). It’s normally one or the other for both. Fewer still, are as good so long after the first visit. But all those that had the Sunday roast agreed it was excellent and a few of us took advantage of being able to order more than one meat! A nice extra. The others were able to order from the large everyday menu. Again, not many venues allow this. What impressed me most, though, was the level of service and particularly from Olivia (Liv). Forget her age, Liv’s handling of a potentially tricky group (latecomers, highchairs, birthday cake) as well as the rest of a busy pub, would embarrass hosts twice her age. She ran the show. Nothing was too much trouble. She was polite but kept the pace up too. It’s rare to see someone take so much pride in their work. Needless to say, my daughter cleared her plate. The parking at the pub is ample and the view amazing – visit on a warmer day and utilise the balcony. We’re now planning a trip back to sample one of the 200 pies on pie night. Thank you again.More

Had a booking at another pub for a family get together for 25 and let down at the last minute. Phoned the Tiger and was told they would accommodate despite already being very busy. Somehow they managed to fit us in and looked after us...brilliantly. The food was fantastic, the staff accommodating and patient and the whole experience fantastic, despite as I have said them being very very busy, for reasons that were apparent. Couldn’t praise them enough for what they didMore

Fabulous family night out, sixteen of us went for pie night (booked in advance) a couple of very fussy eaters, a coeliac, a veggie included in our party - no problem all easily accommodated without any of the eye rolls or huffs that we have...often experienced and we didn't have to pre order either. Fabulous pies, homemade chips and a selection of veg, served family style and great puddings, again accommodating of our dietary requirements without a quibble It's very good fresh home cooked pub food at a very good price and this is why we keep going back.More

We had pre booked and told staff when booking that we had 4 dogs with us. We arrived and were told dogs were not allowed in the restaurant only the pub. Why wasn’t this alerted to us upon booking? Staff also ignored us when we...stood in the doorway so we just decided to sit down. It took another 20 mins for someone to come and take our orders. Starters took 25 mins to come out. The stilton pie for main was not nice. How is stilton made to taste sweet??? Anyway we didn’t leave a tip and there was 11 of us in total so that is a shame. We would not return sadly.More

I can't fault the food. There was plenty, and it was well cooked. My husband was very impressed with his pie. The service wasn't so good. Didn't inquire if our meal was ok, didn't ask if we'd like a dessert. The staff were friendly, but...need more training in customer service. They also tried to charge us for a drink we'd already paid for, and added on the price of a drink we'd not had. Check your bill before you pay.More

Beautiful food - a lovely selection of pies for Pie Night. Such a friendly waitor - and chef - too, but very disappointing to be called the day before our 5pm booking to be told we'd have to leave by 6.20pm for another booking at...6.30pm! On the day, we were all keen to order desert and it left us with a sour taste, so to speak, to be rushed out in such a manner. Very odd.More

Mix of positives and negatives. We liked the service - pleasant and welcoming and they made a real effort under what seemed to be a deal of pressure as it was Saturday night and just two members of staff taking orders and serving food. The...food was a mix of positives and negatives. The chips weren’t really chips - they were more like potato wedges and a bit on the soggy side. My scampi was fine but I selected salad to accompany it and you could literally fit the amount of salad in a tablespoon! Also accompanied by the thinnest lemon wedge which was so meagre it was impossible to squeeze. The beef pie wasn’t really a pie - it was a stew with a disc of pastry on top. However the beef stew inside was absolutely gorgeous and it was nice to have a bowl of mixed veg to share (made up for my lack of salad). Some nice properly fried, hot chips and decent sized accompaniments would have made a huge difference and would have barely cost any extra - it would have really made this a good value place to eat. The dining room was very pleasant, warm and sunny with a lovely view but the pub generally looks a little worse for wear around the edges. Ladies loos had run out of loo roll and one of them had a broken flush. Having said that, the service was very good and we would be willing to give this pub another go in the future.More

Mixed review. Not welcoming, 20 minutes before anyone came to take the drinks order. One hour 5 minutes before the food arrived from ordering. No one came to check on whether the food was ok, 3 x asking for water for the table. The food...was ok, when it arrived; no roast potatoes, vegetable selection limited. Such a shame as we really wanted to like it, really wanted to enjoy the fab surroundings. We won’t be going back… we don’t recommend.More

Very enjoyable visit. There were 4 of us and we really liked our meals - 2 x burgers, gammon and pineapple and mushroom and stilton pie. Everything cooked to perfection. Just one of us had a dessert, salted caramel torte and again it was excellent....One very minor grumble in that it took a good 30 minutes for the mains to arrive when the pub wasn't busy. However we were in no hurry and the view over the countryside was stunning. Our waitress was very friendly. We aim to be back soon.More

I feel like I genuinely don't want to leave a bad review, times are tough for pubs and restaurants. But that being said, in my opinion now is the time for all establishments to give their absolute all to ensure customers enjoy themselves, get good...value for money and want to return. The Tiger was a big disappointment, the best feature is the view, but we were stuck in the corner of a dirty, unpleasant bar area with a view of empty, dirty glasses etc gradually growing on the side of the bar and never finding there way into a dishwasher. It was 4:45 on a Saturday afternoon, we had never been before and had visiting family with us, we really wanted a nice meal together, going out for a meal is now very rare for us, for affordability reasons. When we walked in I immediately had a bad vibe and regretted my decision to book, I had to ask for our order to be taken even though it was really quiet inside, just 2 other tables. I was excited about the menu, some different and interesting things to choose from. But we waited almost an hour for our food, there was nothing for the kids to do, no play equipment, no drawing or colouring they were really bored, thankfully we brought our own things to do for them. When the food came, my gosh I was disappointed! My son's meal was absolutely tiny, with really sad, unappetising-looking nuggets. My chilly looked like cat sick if I'm honest with the smallest portion of rice I've ever seen. The guacamole was from a dry store jar, not fresh it was all grey and sloppy. The sour cream was in a dirty dish, all running like pouring cream, no cheese- I was going to ask for some but when the bar lady came to ask if everything was ok she was walking away again before we had time to answer, clearly couldn't care less how are meal actually was. The chilly was sweet and not spicy at all, my husband's Burrito he said was the same, small, disappointing with under cooked fries. If we were not with family who were treating us I would have sent it all back, but I wanted to pretend to them it was all great so they didn't feel bad we had taken them to a place that was really poor and they were wasting money on a rubbish meal. Customer service was poor, really felt ignored and unwelcome, food was really below standard. There was incredibly loud music coming from the kitchen like they were enjoying a party rather than cooking our meals. I also must admit worryingly like some other reviewers my stomach was upset for 24 hours after eating the chilly, I am certain that was the cause. I am a professional chef myself so I do have a good understanding of what can upset someone physically after eating. Definitely will not return or recommend it. I think they are understaffed and they would benefit from a drastically reduced menu, so they can perfect a few basic items rather than overreaching as they are now. A clean-up of the bar area, reduced wait times for food, and a hygiene inspection.More

I feel uncomfortable writing this as it may have just been an unfortunate night to go - but it was our celebration and a meal to remember for the wrong reasons, hope you can improve on staffing issues, undercooked food and cleanliness as these things...matter for a good review. Even though the pricing is reasonable for standard pub food this was below standards in all areas .More
