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.

Previously been last year and it was good for a large meal but this time wanted a lite lunch which was as filling. Excellent and welcoming service staff. Plenty of choice with menus available. The garlic mushrooms were delicious but would have liked the bread...roll a little warmer. Sandwiches were delicious with side salad and chips such great value. Dessert was delicious and beautifully presented. Good value and nice atmosphereMore

What a lovely pub!. Arrived dripping wet and with muddy hiking boots - we were made so welcome. The service and food was great too. The chocolate pudding was scrummy xx

Came out of the blue as the usual eatery wasn't serving. Must admit I am impressed. I had the famous cheese pie. Delicious Partner had the sausage and mash, look to be fresh butchers sausages, she scoffed the lot. And the lad got the steak...pie! Massive portion. Loads of steak! £53 all in all, with 2 soft drinks and water bottle Will definitely be back!More

We celebrated my Mums 60th birthday here on Saturday, 7th October, as a party of 10. We booked our table a few weeks prior & pre-ordered our food a few days before the day. We were welcomed by smiley, friendly staff. The place was really...clean and modern. Everyone absolutely loved their home cooked, delicious food. Drinks prices were reasonable and the staff were more than happy to bring out the cake we had arranged for us after our meal. I'm so glad we chose this place on our visit, we were staying nearby in a holiday home, and if we're in the area again, we will definitely return. 10/10. Thank-you 😊More

We visited the traders arms last night for the first time in a good few years. We live locally to Mellor and after a horrendous last visit we have been put off going until we heard great things. Myself and my husband are somewhat glad...we came! The food was delicious and great value for money and the service was outstanding. The women with the blonde hair chelsea was just incredible, she was very busy however always found time to see if we was ok, we needed anything else, recommendations and overall just a chat. This definitely will be a new firm favourite for us after years of not coming. Thank you for a pleasant visitMore

Having worked in the 'Pub Trade' most of my life,I'm always amazed when they stop serving food with 3 or 4 more hours of 'trading opportunity. This place takes last food orders at 7.45pm, even on Saturday night. The net result of this was that...the Dining Room was in darkness by 9.00pm; they were playing some excellent 80's music, with speakers only in the dining area and not the rest of the pub, with nobody in it to enjoy the music. The food itself was of excellent quality, with the spectacular Frank Littler's sausages and real chips to die for. I think that the addition of Gingham Table Cloths and 'T' Lights would make all the difference,plus the addition of "Grey Pound" favourites such as roast dinners, casseroles and braised steak and onion gravy would bring 'The Punters flocking in;also taking last food orders at 9.30 or 10.pm if open till midnight. This place could easily generate a further £20 to £40k profit per year.More

Great Food , Great Service and Great Prices. Took Mum for a surprise Birthday Lunch and chose The Traders Arms as they gave a good selection of food to suit everyone, and for Mum who doesn’t eat Veg or Dishes with Sauces or seasoning there...was plenty of choice besides the usual Fish and Chips on offer at most places . We arrived to a warm welcome, the food was hot and delicious, although I was a little disappointed with just the 2 Sausages with the Sausage and Mash . Mum had the Scampi which came with chunky homemade chips and they accommodated Mums needs and swapped the Garden Peas for Beans. The Mint Aero Cheesecake was as equally delicious and we left full to bursting. We will definitely be backMore

A very full pub, no booking but within 15mins we were taken to a table and food came a short time later. Caesar salad one of the best I've had. Lovely skinny fries. Efficient friendly staff. Very highly recommended!
