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.

Booked for our wedding anniversary and as always the service from Aziz was superb. The other staff were good too as the bill had an error on it for which they could not apologise enough. Food excellent as well. A great night out and topped...off with desserts and a memorable wish for our wedding anniversary celebrations 🍾More

Excellent food & friendly service. Good sized portions - the linguini gamberoni was full of prawns! We didn’t have a dessert so can’t comment on these. Reasonably priced but limited wine list.

Awful experience. We arrived at 7pm, my cold and burnt lasagne arrived around half past eight. I sent it back - a few minutes later the same meal was brought back to me even more burnt with some added cheese to try and disguise it!...The waiter refused to take it back until I picked up the plate and gave it to him. The third attempt provided me with a hot lasagne, but all pasta layers with very little meat. Overpriced crispy burnt food with shockingly rude and slow service. It used to be a nice restaurant a few years ago, but the quality and excessive noise levels means I’m not inclined to return. £25 for extremely poor lasagne and a pint is excessive for Handforth!More

Portions small - and very expensive for what you get - service abismal - waited half an hour to get a jug of water and 15 mins for a glass of wine - my friend sent back his lasagne 3 times and ended up with...a portion of dried up pasta - no /very little ragu and just tomato sauce - appreciate they were busy but to be honest well overpriced and god know how they get a 5 star rating it was more like 2 stars and know of several other places who knock this place out the the park value for money wise and service wise - wont be back ever!More

We booked in advance and my partner ordered the sauce for her steak which came wrong , they seemed put out about their mistake but changed it reluctantly, the service charge was stated but Normally this is optional but when we brought this up they...made the excuse of paying staff extra for Christmas Day, however we had paid £85 pp and on the menu it stated “service not included “ so we thought we were in our rights to question this but they insisted it was compulsory!, it really spoiled our night the food was good but drinks overpriced, so our first time here will be the last as long as I have a pulse , the staff were generally ok , but we felt they’re taking the P*Ss with the overcharging my advice is go elsewhere if you don’t want to be ripped offMore
