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.

Friends took us the week before Christmas for Dinner, 3 courses for £30! We got a warm welcome and had a drink before being shown to our table. The room was spotless, well decorated with a nice ambience. We chose a delicious French Onion soup...starter, then three turkey dinners with all the trimmings and one lamb shank. For desert it we chose Baileys Creme brule and chocolate brownie with pistachio ice cream. The service was first class and the food was delicious and really really good quality and amazing value especially as there was dancing afterwards with a disco. We enjoyed it so much we went again on New Years Eve where again everything was perfect. Our friends go regularly and if we lived closer we would be there lots to.More

Booked here for Christmas Day several months ago, was told they’d send us out a menu around August time which they didn’t, so rang today to enquire and was met firstly with staff that seemingly didn’t know what to do, then finally the chef/manager Chris...got back to us and basically spoke to us like we were stupid, then when told we weren’t very impressed he simply said we’ll have your money back then! Absolutely shocking to be treated like this in December when there is now no possibility of booking anywhere else! I appreciate at times the customer isn’t always right, but to be met with ignorance, arrogance and a couldn’t give a damn attitude, I'm afraid in this instance the customer is right, and Chris? Is very very wrong! He clearly has so much business that he can meet any enquiry with ‘we’ll go somewhere else then’! Well Chris, I’m going to do whatever I can to damage your business, you deserve nothing less! And as a local business owner with 3000+ social media followers in your catchment area, believe me, damage it I will! You seriously need lessons in customer service! I would urge anybody to avoid this man’s restaurant like the plague, and show him that without the very people that put the money into his pocket, life is very different. Happy Christmas to you, I hope your ovens break down on Christmas Eve, you really do deserve it! And Chris, I promise you, this is just the beginning!More

Booked backed in May 2023 (28th to be precise, got the deposit receipt to prove it) for Christmas day lunch. I was informed at the time of booking that they didn’t know the cost or menu at this point, however we booked regardless stating clearly...we would need 3 vegan meals, which I had already been told by email in April that this would not be a problem. They said someone would be in touch Sept time. I’ve not heard anything back from them even after sending a couple of emails. I found the menu on line but obviously wanted to know what the vegan alternative would be as at £95 per head I wanted to make sure it was something we were going to like. So today I called them to enquire, firstly they couldn’t find my booking then when they did they couldn’t answer any questions as to what our alternative would be. I asked to speak to a manager as it wasn’t the poor girl answering the phones fault, this was poor management. The manager was totally hopeless and couldn’t answer any questions but clearly said she could see on the booking we had 3 vegan meals. She said she would call the chef/owner and get him to call me. He called with a very obnoxious attitude, and obviously no intention on trying to assist his customers. His view was he wasn’t told there were vegans…erm it clearly has said it on the booking since MAY. So received no ‘I’m so sorry for the misunderstanding and lack of communication’ his view was, we’ll refund you your deposit. So now on the 3rd Dec, it’s too late to book anywhere else so our Christmas Day ruined. What an absolute joke of a restaurant. This was going to cost us £500 without even considering drinks and that’s his response. Doesn’t even deserve any custom. Horrible man that obviously does not value his customers.More

Booked to eat here for a Christmas meal and told them in advance when we booked that there were dietary requirements. They said when we booked in May (7 months in advance) that we would get a call to go through the menu as it...hadn’t been made yet. Well those 7 months have passed now and we received no call, we contacted them in the hopes of getting some information about what would be served. Our call was passed on to the chef as front of house didn’t know what was on the menu when we asked. The chef was incredibly rude and obnoxious on the phone, he had no intention of trying to resolve the issue. Appalled by his attitude. Our Christmas Day now ruined!!!More

The service is great. Welcoming, friendly, personal. Nothing is too much trouble. The Sunday lunch was faultless. The warm salad and beef were good portions, cooked well, tasty and more than you need. Plenty of vegetables and a good wine list. And incredibly great value...when you look at what you get for the same price elsewhere. The chef knows what he’s doing and the training is clearly very good.More

We used this for venue for a surprise 70th Birthday celebration (28/01/2023) for 30 people. The whole experience from start to finish was excellent with Chris, Peter and all the staff being tremendously accommodating throughout. Though our numbers were relatively small compared to what they...would normally deal with, Chris was happy to personalise our event and enabled us to have a lovely, intimate night. The food was excellent and our guests all commented on how they had enjoyed all their meals. The staff on the night were equally super (helpful, friendly and very professional).More

Where do I start? I organized a Xmas lunch for the NARPO members, with the assistance of the staff and chefs. We formulated a menu from the Xmas menu which I can honestly say was fantastic, from start to finish we were looked after. The...choice of soup, pigeon salad, or scallops starter to Sea Bass, Beef, Turkey and veg. Option. To finish with Xmas pudding, cheese and biscuits, lemon tart or fruit. All presented very nice and full of flavour. A fantastic well done to all.More

Dont bother booking on line. Advise you an hour before that that your booking is declined and then advise by phone when you call to complain its your fault because you didnt make the booking by phone. Totally unapologetic. Wont try again. Plenty of other...places nearby that appreciate your custom.More

I haven’t been here for sone years but the food and service used to be fabulous. Sadly no more I should have realised at a practically empty restaurant at peak time last Sunday. The waitress was very young and unprofessional and no where to be...seen when we needed to pay the bill even though the restaurant was almost empty. Told us abruptly we had no choice but to have 2 courses! Decor has gone down hill too plastic blinds, scruffy carpets and toilets. As for the food the beef was over cooked cut too thin and chewy , the gravy was like water and vegetables bland. It certainly can’t have been the ex QE2 chef cooking that day. I felt embarrassed I’d recommended and taken my friend there so sad as it used to be so good.More

Visited yesterday and had a great meal. The surroundings are excellent and the restaurant itself was very impressive. The food was some of the best we have had in this area and the staff were very efficient and attentive. £20.50 for two courses is very...good value for money, considering the quality of the food, etc. We will definitely visit again. The only criticism (or comment) is that, for a restaurant of this calibre, we would have expected linen napkins, rather than paper.More
