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.

Having moved into the area, this is our nearest pub. We have been on several occasions now and I can never fault it. Atmosphere is brilliant, the food is always good. Even when we have had issues, they have always been quick to resolve, therefore...it not being an issue overall- nobody is perfect after all!! The pricing is good. We love the bingo nights. Always welcoming and something for everyone. Credit where credit it dueMore

Can’t fault the food maybe just once though it would be nice if the table wasn’t cleared in silence.Makes all the difference if your asked how was everything can I get you anything else etc etc not only does it put more money in the...till it finishes the experience on a positive note.Happens every time you’ve got to train your staff better.More

Took my mum and dad for a joint birthday meal and we had been once before. Staff were very friendly and the food selection was good. Food was quickly served once ordered and was absolutely delicious. Highly recommend.

My 10 year old son and I visited today for the first time to try out the food. Absolutely amazing food and excellent service! We arrived around 1pm.and it was relatively quiet and no problem getting a table. By 1:40 we'd had our starter (we...shared the salt and pepper chicken fries), and by 2:10 we'd eaten the main course (roast beef for me and chicken curry for my son). It was a little bit of a wait to catch someone's attention to clear the plates and order puddings, but once we got them they were again amazing - Lotus Biscoff cheesecake and piping hot apple crumble with custard. Lovely atmosphere, super tasty food and reasonable prices - we will definitely be returning and recommending to friends :-)More

Visited recently with family over from Australia for Christmas. We had large fish, chips, mushy peas and homemade tartare sauce. All delicious and piping hot, the battered fish was excellent, pure white flakes of good quality cod, fresh and crispy as it should be. The...staff were all polite and the price was good.More

Stopped by for drinks in the afternoon. Manageress on duty in black top with glasses was super rude. I must say her manners were below the average and the product knowledge was pretty much non-existent. Wont be coming here again!!!

This was not my first visit to the pub but was my first time eating and it was a very good experience. I was hungry and opted for the mixed grill which didn't disappoint.
