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.

We came to the Poacher and Partridge for Valentines day. My husband had hired one of the outdoor shacks and it was wonderful. The food and cocktails were delicious! I was a bit worried we might feel isolated and lack atmosphere being away from the...restaurant, but you can connect your phone to speakers inside it and play your own playlist and the staff kept coming to check on us, so we never felt forgotten about. We were served by Ruby, who was great! She was so friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. Thank you for a really wonderful dinner!!More

Came to the pub today with my family as a treat having had a really rubbish day. Caz made us feel so welcome. She was cheerful and courteous and made sure that we were enjoying our meal. Thanks Caz 😊

Never been. Here before, it's a little further than we would normally travel too, but would definitely go again, lovely pub with a modern twist that the elite pubs chain seem to do so well, lots of parking, very busy, wonderful vegan Moroccan tagine, great...staff, and atmosphere. Well worth visit.More

Had an amazing time. Often come here for full blown meal. In this instance we had changed our plans last minute and booked online. We just had pizza, croquettes and fries to share. It was perfect. Andara (sp?) was attentive and friendly, great service.

The male who showed us to our table came across quite stand offish. We all found that the the meat of the Sunday lunches were pretty much inedible. Couldn't even cut through it, it was so rubbery and rough. The puddings however were lovely and...the lady who saw to our table throughout the meal was wonderful. Friendly and polite. Overall the atmosphere was good but wouldn't go back for Sunday lunch.More
