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.

Such a beautiful cosy pub, the owners were so lovely and welcoming, it was so cosy sitting by the fire, with the Christmas tree and Christmas lights. The food was 5 star, absolutely amazing, hats of to the chef! I had a steak which was...cooked to perfection and the homemade chip were so good! My boyfriend had the Braai BBQ mix and I’m pretty sure he loves his meal more than me lol, he said it was amazing and wants to have everything off the menu ha. We are already telling our friends and family about this amazing place, my partner and I are already planning our next visit. Thank you so much :)More

We came by this place after a walk and stopped for a quick drink just as the place was opening. What was supposed to be a quick drink turned into staying for dinner. On a dark chilly November evening, his place was so cosy! There...were comfy seats near the fire. The decor comfortable and welcoming. The landlord gave us Jenga to play with while we waited for the kitchen to open for food. As well as more usual English pub food, there ware traditional south African dishes on the menu. I'd never had it before so gave it a try. The food was lovely. (For anyone watching their diet, it's good healthy food too by the way). As the evening went on, the place git busier and busier, so you may want to book. The bill at the end was reasonable too, no overpriced drinks! I would love to come back again and really recommend it.More

I did a pin sticking pub pick for Suffolk Sunday lunch on Google maps and decided to give the Three ways pub a visit. After speaking to the landlord booked a table,as he seemed very nice on the phone taking the booking. The pub was...over an hour away in an area not visited before. When we arrived the car park was nearly full,an indicator of a popular pub in a quite remote area. On entering was greeted by the landlord and our drink order taken. At least 2 real ales on tap, another good sign of popularity for a rural pub. We were seated and our lunch order quickly taken followed by a very quick service. Only managed half pint of beer before service. Vegetables served separate as was gravy. The meats and vegetables was just the right amount so no waste, Which left just enough room for cracking homemade dessert. A very nice landlord & landlady & friendly staff,and good food and service and price. Another trip in the offing. Well worth the trip down some very narrow lanes to find.More

We visited the Three Ways in Cowlinge with friends. The pub is a lovely traditional British country establishment, and the extensive menu offers a combination of British pub favourites and some enticing South African dishes. Having opted to go for traditional starters which were really...good, all of us chose from the South African options and we thoroughly enjoyed both the Bobotie (a lamb dish) and Potjiekos (a beef dish). We managed a couple of desserts between us, which were also lovely. The pub also has a good selection of beers and we were pleased that the evening represented great value for money. It is well worth a visit.More

This pub is a gem. Stunning garden and very peaceful atmosphere - a fantastic 15 min drive out from Newmarket (where there are no decent pubs) along beautiful country road. Owners are very welcoming and the menu is brilliant with classics lime fish and chips...(delicious) but also South African dishes. Can't wait to try their "foot long" sausages next time made at the local butcher with SA spices. Great real ale (something sadly lacking from Newmarket pubs), a gorgeous interior which we will enjoy visiting in winter. We have tried a few country pubs around Newmarket since my son moved to the area and this one is the best by miles. I couldn't understand why it was not busier on a Saturday night! Don't hesitate to go.More
