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.

Visited for a late Sunday lunch and things not as I remember having not been here for a while. The Sunday roast chicken no longer a half chicken. Replaced by chicken supreme. So overall the food was fine but service was a little slow, tables...and menus were sticky and in need of a good wipe down. It just seems standards have slumped here and sadly compared with other similar pubs in the area made it not high up in our revisit list. ShameMore

Good place to park, go for a long walk and return for something to eat and drink. The pot of tea was great - if a little expensive at £3, but considering the ample parking was a bargain overall.

Huge thank you to the Team at Brampton Halt for our excellent group christmas dinner last weekend. There was over 20 of us, including little ones and nothing was too much hassle from the moment we arrived. Megan was really helpful in arranging the deposit...and food order leading up to the day and the food did not disappoint. Big hits - Xmas burger and the poached pear dessert. Kitchen did a fab job as always and the service was superb. Due to the size of the group, we had a lovely long table in the marquee area. It was really pretty and I'd definitely recommend this for large parties/group events. The marquee has its own mini bar, sound system and dancefloor - although we didn't need or use these this time. Ample parking on site for large numbers too. We've chosen Brampton Halt for our annual christmas meal several times over the years and this was the best yet. Will definitely come again! Thanks again amd merry christmas to you all xxMore

Absolutely lovely. Six of us (brothers and sister with our respective 'other halves') met up for an early pre- Christmas get together and exchange of presents. Our waitress was most friendly and attentive to our needs, the food was both delicious and well presented. Living...so far away, I cannot pretend to say that I'll be a regular diner, but I'll be more than happy for the six of us to meet up here again in the future. Btw, I enjoyed the best venison dish (it was a special today) that I have had in a very long time. We were all very pleased and impressed - I recommend this restaurant very highly.More

Lovely location and roomy establishment although thats the highlights. Only one member of staff on during late afternoon sitting. The wait to beseated, orders taken, served meals was ridiculously long. Took over 1/2 hr for requested table water to arrived and two hours for two...courses. Had to cancel dessert as we’d had to leave and couldnt wait any longer. Not sure what it would be like if it was busy!

We use this establishment quite often but was disgusted with the bar service today. Popped in lunchtime today with my wife for a drink. The bartender didn't speak english very well and was quite rude. My wife wanted a glass of Port. The bartender didn't...seem to know what Port was and very bluntly said we don't sell Port. Whether this is true or not I don't know, but i can't imagine a place that sells food doesn't sell Port. If this is the case they need to get it put on their drink menu. Nothing like having a nice glass of port say with a cheesboard etc. We didn't like his attitude and suggest he needs some more training on manners. We left without ordering anything else and will not be returning forquite a while.More

Our visit was very muddled. I asked for a gluten free menu; there wasn’t one, just a menu with some biro notes on it (I’d had a look online so I knew there was gluten free choices, or gluten free alternatives available). Firstly, our drinks...order was served wrong although easily rectified. We all had starters. Two of us the same, one adapted to be gluten free, the other as per the menu. It concerns me when the plates arrive without a clear indication which is gluten free. In this instance, the bread was different and GF bread is quite easy to distinguish. My main course was GF anyway (so I thought). The curry was in a bowl, the rice piled on the plate, next to 2 pieces of flat bread. I checked if the flat bread was GF. The whole dish went back to the kitchen to return with freshly cooked rice, no flat bread. No it wasn’t GF! It was actually very tasty though. My worry is, what’s happening in the kitchen? Do they take allergies seriously? Be careful.More
