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.

Booked a table for Saturday evening to celebrate my Mum’s 60th. My Sister, Brothers and their Wives had returned to Sheffield for the occasion, a rare treat which we were looking forward to, all going out for a meal at a pub we used to...enjoy visiting. Unfortunately the staff were so ignorant that we decided to leave after our arrival drinks, as the poor service and attitude of the two members of staff serving us made us feel utterly unwelcome and the thought of spending £200-300 there that evening quite unappealing. I asked beforehand if I could bring balloons to put by the table, as a surprise for my Mum, which someone had confirmed would be fine. When I turned up with the balloons 2 hours before our 5pm booking, a very rude member of staff said they would be busy that evening and I would just need to leave them in the seating area. No smile, no pleasantry… The seating area was empty, so I left the balloons and just hoped they would still be there later, as I was literally leaving them in the seating area of the pub. On arriving at 5pm, the same ignorant woman from earlier showed us to our table. Again, no smile or pleasantry…to the extent I can only assume she had received some terrible news that afternoon. She took a drink order that seemed quite an inconvenience for her. Another woman brought the drinks out, unfortunately she seemed to have received the same terrible news that the other woman had/had been to the same school of customer service! Spilt the first drinks she brought out when slamming them down on the table, then slammed the second drinks she brought over down at one end and left - no query as to who these were for. After a while the initial woman came towards us and shouted over ‘let me know when the rest of you arrive’. Again, with the attitude and scowl that suggested us being there was a massive inconvenience. I had to point out we were all there - as confirmed at the point of booking, 2 of the 11 guests were a baby and toddler. My request for highchairs had been ignored (not a problem, we would just get our own), but that is why 2 of the seats didn’t have adults sitting in them. To which she got out her notebook and said in an awful tone ‘Just you lot then, what do you want?’. We were all completely taken aback at how rude this, and the entire service since arrival was. We decided to just pay for our drinks and leave. Given there were 11 of us and it was Saturday evening, this left us with a takeaway - disappointing given this was a special and rare family gathering for a 60th Birthday. We have all been to Shoulder of Mutton many times over the years, and never experienced anything like this. The staff and experience used to be lovely - what on Earth has happened?! Half our party have worked in similar pubs in the past, behaving like these two women would have been completely unacceptable. I think we’ll go to The Old Horns or Blue Ball in future, staff are much more welcoming.More

What a lovely valentine's night meal. The pub looked very nice and there were treats and candles on the table which was a nice touch. The food was delicious sharing starter, steak & the Chicken and we just a about managed to squeeze the yummy...trio of puds. We were very well looked by all the staff.More

Not great. Staff not particularly friendly. Waiter knew absolutely nothing of the menu or prices. The food was reasonable but to offer tinned fruit cocktail crumble for £6 was a total mistake. The plates were also straight out of the oven and dangerously hot! The...Valentines menu at £50 was extremely poor quality. One choice of starter, one choice of dessert (of which I liked neither) and the steak they advertised came with nothing more than chips and a tomato! Where were the things like salad, peas, onion rings, choice of steak sauces? Not a place you would go to twice I'm afraid.More
