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.

We have been here a number of times and the staff are great and food has always been good but today my wife and I we went for a Sunday Roast and it was well below our expectations. The Roast beef was raw and we...both had trouble cutting it. Although we are not partial to al dent vegetables we do tolerate them but these were hard and not cooked. The gravy was thin and tasteless. We won't be rushing back.More

Mother’s Day 24….booked for 12.30 and we pre-ordered, trouble parking and it was rainy so muddy on the verges, the owner did kindly move his car so my son could park which was very nice of him! Food was good, plenty of it, too full...for a pudding. Very good service too.More

UBER delivery of calvery roast and desert 👌 Sat on a Friday mid/late evening and decided a Sunday Roast and desert treat. I estimate for me to drive is 10 minutes away, it was delivered 12 minutes later. It was hot, there was so much...portion both meal and desert, confidently packaged so I could eat straight away, I had my ordered gravy and extra Union gravy (no charge) the meats cooked to perfection, the roast potatoes crunchy, the veg cooked to perfection, that moderate hint of crunch so not steamed to death. The desert was simply perfection,the portion huge. So yes if you take into account the tip, user charge etc, you looking at a sit down on the premises food price, but let me tell you, I can cook, and if I put that on the table I would think I'd swam the channel. Superb service well done all the staff at the Squirrel. I order regularly and 99% of the time I would leave this same review, even when not quite on point which is super rare I finish having zero regrets I've ordered such is the quality from the Squirrel 👌More

Plenty of parking spaces. The food was great. Fresh vegetables and a lovely homemade chicken and leek pie. Also plenty of beers to choose from a well stocked bar. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and we'll definitely be back again

We were on a short break a few miles away and visited The Squirrel as the notes in our holiday cottage indicated it was wheelchair accessible, which is critical for us. Went for dinner, big portions of high quality food at a more than reasonable...price. Very friendly staff and we were so impressed we immediately booked for lunch a few days later and that was equally excellent. This place is a rare gem and locals are so lucky to have it.More

Had a booking for 2pm for a family of 4 but were unable to park anywhere remotely close to the place as there were cars and vans everywhere. What made it harder was the fact that parking on the verge blocked visibility getting out onto...a fast moving road. Very disappointedMore

Stopped here for weekday dinner based on reviews. Everything was average - I had a prawn linguine and it was not great. Pasta sticky and pretty tasteless (including very sad samphire). I wonder if it had been left standing too long. Service was friendly and...efficient. Maybe we just caught the kitchen on an off day.More

We had been told that the food was amazing at The Squirrel, you must go, we were told! The car park is always full when we drive past, so it seems popular place to eat. So for my Step Dad's birthday we decided to give...it a go.....there were 5 of us, 4 had roast dinner and 1 had ham, egg and chips. The roast dinners were distinctly poor.... minimum amount of vegetables, what seemed like deep fried roast potatoes, a cold Yorkshire pudding and the meat....well my Mum couldn't actually eat hers, both the turkey and beef were tough and stringy, the rest of us had a go at cutting and chewing the meat. My Mum was offered a extra slice of meat to replace the meat she couldn't eat but she declined. All condiments had to be asked for, even the salt and pepper. 5 main meals, 1 desert, 9 drinks came to £135 but £13.50 was added to the bill for service charge, ( you service charge was added onto the total of the bill but you don't have to pay it ) As a rule I never complain BUT in this instance we were so looking forward to eating there and that the food was so poor that I feel compelled to write this review. I am sorry to say we won't be returning.More
