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.

Following a recommendation last year, yesterday was about our 5th revisit to the Bull and the service (thank you Stacey), the quality and choice of food was, as always, outstanding. With one coeliac and another with a severe nut allergy in our party, both were...catered for professionally and safely. We couldn’t ask for more.More

Amanda has been an amazing host. She couldn’t do enough for us. I don’t normally write reviews but she went above and beyond with our service. We visited for our anniversary and she made it very special.

Mainly a popular food pub, however, we had a great pint of Timothy Taylor's Landlord bitter, served brilliantly by Amanda. It was early Sunday evening and she supplied some wonderful home roasted potatoes 'on the house' to compliment the beer. Thanks. Lovely surprise!

My family and I came here for Mother's Day lunch. We were with my nephew, who is 3 years old. They were hugely accommodating to us, firstly by fitting us in between sittings and then by moving us from the outside heated area to inside...when a space became available. Our servers, Holly and Cosmin, went out of their way to ensure our comfort. They were also really helpful in keeping my nephew entertained. I also have coeliac disease and every item on the menu could be made gluten free. I really appreciate this and can't wait to come back again. It's nice having good options for food!More
