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.

What a fantastic family meal for my daughter’s birthday! She chose the restaurant, one we had not visited previously and we were not disappointed. Brilliant service, friendly, relaxed but attentive and nothing was too much trouble. Food was tasty and plentiful, not one complaint from...11 people having starters and mains. The restaurant allowed us to bring a cake and provided side plates to eat it in the restaurant, which is becoming rare these days. Thank you for making this occasion memorable. We will be back!More

We had a reasonable meal, but the liver and chicken fillet were a bit dry, overcooked. The service itself was good but without any friendliness. The atmosphere was nice due to the customers, lively

Food and service were great. I had a pizza which was delicious and the other members of my party had the Sunday roasts which they said was amazing. The atmosphere was lovely and staff were great. Will definitely be coming here again and highly recommend.

Great service and food from a great pub. We came mob handed with babies, kids, hangovers and nut allergies but they were just so accommodating. Food was really good, drinks great as always and the team were great.

It was the warm welcome from the lovely staff that we really appreciated from the minute we walked in. We were passing through Herrongate and thought the pub looked rather nice but were surprised at how lovely and cosy it was. We sat in the...snug and there was a party of three ladies obviously enjoying their lunch next to us. My husband had the prawn penne which he said was delicious and I had the ploughmans which was so generous, I had to ask to take half home. The baguette was fresh which I always like and the ham thickly cut and delicious. We were well served by a charming young man and I highly recommend this establishment.More

We were a large booked in for a family lunch on a Saturday. We hadnt realised that the table was on a 2 hour turnaround, usually for tables over 8 you get a little bit more time. The staff were absolutely brilliant and we ended...up having the table for an extra hour which was great. This is were the positives end. The food was awful, a few of us had the steak and mushroom pie with mash (the special of the day). The mash was dry and lumpy and lacked any seasoning, vegetables over boiled and bland and the steak was like leather. Others had the ploughmans which they said was meh at best. Its a lovely pub and we were made to feel very welcome but the food was horrible....our bill was £400 which is a lot to spend on a bad mealMore

Great food and nice waitress but at 10 o’clock couldn’t wait to get rid of us and made our group of five feel really uncomfortable. This despite spending £180 with a tip. Will never eat here again and made to fell an inconvenience.

Booked this pub for dinner with some friends, there were 6 of us in total. None of us had been there before but we were looking forward to trying somewhere new. The staff were so lovely to us all, very attentive and friendly. As soon...as we walked in they were there to sit us down and anything we asked for wasn’t too much. I would like to make a special thanks to the manager, Gary, who made us all feel extremely welcome and had a lovely chat with us at the bar after our meal. The food was delicious and they catered very well for my friends with allergies (nuts and gluten). We will definitely be returning - this is our new spot!More

Dogs are allowed. I wouldn't have thought in the food areas but I am not sure. They have a biggish garden too.
